Antony Loewenstein links to propaganda using sick kids to score anti-western points:
Alive in Baghdad blog takes a trip around Baghdad Hospital’s children’s ward and reveals the effect of US and UK-dropped depleted uranium.
It is absurd of Loewenstein to claim a link between depleted uranium and adverse health effects in Iraqi children when no such link has been demonstrated.

I wonder if Macquarie University, where Loewenstein is a member of the board of the Centre for Middle East and North African Studies and an Honorary Associate in the Department of Politics and International Relations, supports this cynical manipulation of sick children? The question seems fair enough considering that Loewenstein touts these academic connections at his blog.

methinks that The Ant's head is more dense than depleted uranium. If we strapped him to a B2 bomb rack, he'd make a great bunker buster.

I agree. Depleted uranium causes no damage to people's health. And now I must go to catch that pig before it flies off ...
