I am sure your kind of critique is not what this zealous crusader is looking for, but do feel free to educate him or her.  These people have caused laws to be passed in Connecticut, Louisiana, California.and possibly New York.  They have done it by spreading ignorance like this.

Please critique and use this flyer.

Forget 3000 US Combat Deaths in Iraq. Millions of US citizens will die
from the affects of depleted uranium! 
The following material is a restatement and rearrangement of material
from expert sources, such as Dr. Leuren Moret.
Britain and the US... and now Israel... have turned this planet into
the Auschwitz radioactive poison gas chamber and we are all sitting in
it increasing our body burden of radiation with every breath we take.
There is no escape... (3)
Since 1991, the U.S. has released the radioactive atomicity equivalent
of at least 400,000 Nagasaki bombs into the global atmosphere from
depleted uranium.. (1)
Millions of microscopic particles of depleted uranium (DU) are created
when DU weapons are used. (6)
Yes it [DU] travels... very rapidly at relatively low altitude in the
troposphere, and is carried by westerlies, trade winds, convection
cells, and air currents, not to mention the sand and dust storms which
are characteristic of arid regions. (3)
DU weapons were first used in war by the United States in the 1990-91
Gulf War. There was a 136% increase in diabetes in the United States
from 1990 to 2002, the last year numbers are available. (3)
Global increases since 1991 of melanoma, infant mortality, and frog
die-offs can only be explained by an environmental contaminant.
Alarming global increases in diabetes, with high correlation to
depleted uranium wars in Iraq, Bosnia/Kosovo, and Afghanistan,
demonstrate that diabetes is a sensitive indicator and a rapid
response to internal depleted uranium exposure. In 2003, Americans
reported visiting Iraqi relatives in Baghdad who were suffering from
an epidemic of diabetes. After returning to the US following 2-3 weeks
in Iraq, they discovered within a few months that they too had
diabetes. (5)
DU is also a heavy metal, like lead and mercury. DU causes brain
injury and impairment. Brain injury is common among Iraq war veterans. (6)
20% of the world's people will die prematurely from DU caused diseases.(4)
DU weapons have been used by the United States in Iraq, Yugoslavia,
Afghanistan and Lebanon. Areas will remain contaminated for billions
of years, with much of the population developing cancer. Eventually,
the genetic code of everyone in the contaminated areas will be
affected. All children in heavily contaminated areas will be born with
birth defects. Even if people in the United States are unaware of DU's
public health effects, people in many or most other parts of the world
know about the affects of DU. They will loathe the people of the
United States. (7)
