         Here is another item in their bag of tricks.  First, some background.

         Last fall I attended a lecture by a man who had done a vast amount 
of research on DU, and in his lecture he showed conclusively that it was 
harmless.  The audience was 99 percent anti-DU partisans, who -- oddly 
enough -- were civil.  During the Q and A, one of them started moaning and 
groaning about poisoned Iraqi children.  I told her she had no epidemiology 
to support her claims.  What did she have to say to me about that?  It 
seems that me and everyone like me suffers from an almost "racist, elitist, 
(blah, blah, blah) bias against Iraqis."  When all else fails, accuse your 
opponents of some type of "ism."  It may not be logical or scientific, but 
it serves well for intimidating anyone who dares to speak against the 
anti-DU agitators.
