Storyline

This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of "unknown causes," they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their "disposable army" mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a "mystery disease." How many more will have to die before action is taken? Written by William Lewis

Depleted Uranium?? More like Depleted Intelligence.
29 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It doesn't matter if you are conservative or liberal, when a movie is poorly made and factually incorrect, it shouldn't be given much merit. Don't just listen to the "this movie is great" comments, because these people are just blindly accepting propaganda. They don't pay attention to what the movie is saying, because the arguments presented there are terrible: 1. There is NO alternative to depleted uranium that is as effective. The closest thing we have is tungsten, which isn't even guaranteed to pierce the armor in tanks. The video doesn't mention this, it would hurt their position.

2. This video doesn't take into account other reasons why soldiers could be sick. They blame every problem a soldier has ever had to DU. It could also be the poor health care, lack of adequate or clean water, STD's, viruses, enemy chemical attacks, shell shock, or poor hygiene. But none of these things are considered.

3. Most of the advocates against depleted uranium, admittedly have a problem with the US government as far as health benefits and disabled pay are concerned. They are incredibly biased. Documentaries need to have sources that are not only credible, but don't have an agenda. This movie is just terrible, total waste of time. Everyone I watched this movie with, (democrats, republicans, and a libertarian), thought it was horrendous. Do yourself a favor and go watch a different Depleted Uranium documentary. There's bound to be another one that is actually done right.
