Using uranium shells is war crimes to the max. Why can’t we have an international court of justice to deal with these barbarians? France, USA, Israel, you are a bunch of petty arrogant terrorists of the worse kind. Assholes. (Sorry but there is no other word to describe these cave dwellers.)

In the 2003 invasion they used an estimated 4,000,000 pounds.
