An Attack On Iran's Nuclear Facilities Would Be A Nuclear War

By Ed Ciaccio

An attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, by Israel, the United States, or both, would be a nuclear war for two important reasons:

1. The GBU-28 "bunker buster" bombs which would be used to destroy hardened Iranian nuclear sites use depleted uranium to penetrate concrete. This means lethal radioactive contamination from those exploding bombs would be spewed into the air, ground, and water of Iran, with long-term health consequences to all the people of Iran as well as those in surrounding regions. The people of Fallujah, Iraq, already suffer these horrible consequences from the criminal U.S. & NATO use of depleted uranium there, war crimes which remain unpunished.

2. Destruction of Iran's nuclear facilities, even by non-nuclear weapons, would release lethal radioactive contamination from those facilities into the air, ground, and water of Iran, with long-term health consequences to all the people of Iran as well as those in surrounding regions.
