         What "both sides" are you talking about?  Georgia and the "former" 
Soviet Union?  The real question is, was either side using DU.  First, show 
that the Russians or the Georgians are using depleted uranium.  As far as a 
"single dose" concerned, it depends on the size of the dose.  Since you 
(JS) have no statistics for dose or for dose rate, your "single dose" 
assertion is a waste of time.  (Get a job, James!)
