Despite vowing not to use depleted uranium (DU) weapons in its military action in Syria, the U.S. government has now admitted that it has fired thousands of the deadly rounds into Syrian territory. As Foreign Policy Magazine reports:
“U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) spokesman Maj. Josh Jacques told Airwars and Foreign Policy that 5,265 armor-piercing 30 mm rounds containing depleted uranium (DU) were shot from Air Force A-10 fixed-wing aircraft on Nov. 16 and Nov. 22, 2015, destroying about 350 vehicles in the country’s eastern desert.”

This should be considered a war crime and a genocidal act. It's unlikely this radioactive debris will be cleaned up ... ever.
Add this to the huge amount of plutonium leaking from the Fukushima disaster, and you'll start to see why our planet may become lifeless long before we can escape to Mars.
And even if we DID escape, the morons in the US military would just bring the same poisons along with them and probably destroy that planet too.
