Abstract

This research note examines the use of depleted uranium weapons in contemporary
military interventions and the hazardous effects of their use. It also demonstrates
attempts made by the United States and the United Kingdom to block any
international efforts to ban the use of these weapons. Although there is no laboratory evidence, experiential evidence from Iraq indicates that depleted uranium weapons are dangerous to human health and the environment. This research note argues that the United Nations should play a leading role in seeking a ban on the use of these
weapons in military interventions.
