3 Most Deadly Weapons of Mass Destructions

Before we discuss more in about 3 weapons are weapons of mass destruction is let us forget about nuclear weapons, biology and chemistry, because this time around the world, especially the former conflict areas in Africa, the Middle East, Indochina, the Balkans and so on millions of children and innocent people killed by the weapons in military circles referred to as conventional weapons.

weapons such as cluster bombs, phosphorous bombs, napalm, bullets DU (Depleted Uranium), land mines are very popularly used in battle because in addition to an affordable price, this weapon also has a damaging effect is great enough, but in its development of these weapons precisely be a time bomb because the effects are felt in the post-war period.

some weapons like cluster bombs and land mines has indeed been banned by the UN to be produced and used in warfare, but the business interests of producer countries like the U.S., Israel, France, China, Russia and others have closed the eyes of the hearts of politicians and military experts in many countries to continue to use and produce these weapons. to our knowledge all of the following I present some details of the controversial weapons

1. Cluster Bomb

Cluster Bomb

Cluster bombs or cluster bombs or cluster bombs are bombs that have a unique mechanism whereby after launch from a fighter or bomber, the bomb will burst into hundreds of small bombs in the form of cans. This bomb was originally created to destroy air base runways, dispersing the concentration of ground troops being convoy.

produced by various names CBU / Cluster Bomb Units (United States), Belouga (France), Excalibur (United States). The bomb used in war Iraq, Afghanistan and the Arab-Israeli war.

2. Napalm Bomb

Napalm Bomb

Many nations protested when Indonesia used napalm bombs in Seroja operations in East Timor in the 70s, but on a larger scale the U.S. use these bombs in the conflict in Vietnam and Israel in the Yom Kippur war, but not many countries that protest.

technically napalm is a bomb fuel that contains certain chemical substances in paste form that will burn so bomb burst on the ground. pasta liquid will spread the flames in different directions and this bomb is very effective to destroy the hiding ground troops in the trenches or forest.

Napalm Bomb Effect

3. Bullet DU (Depleted Uranium)

Depleted Uranium (DU) Bullets

Depleted uranium bullets are the type of bullet that was developed from the results of Uranium waste dismantling nuclear bomb. literally means uranium depleted uranium radiation is attenuated. These bullets are very powerful and become the standard weapon cannon GAU-8 Avenger Gatling which brought A-10 aircraft as well as Bushmaster cannons on Bradley APC.

DU was also used to create the core bullets on Abrams tanks. effectiveness of this weapon can penetrate steel tanks which are very thick and this is evident in the Iraq war in which hundreds of Iraqi tanks become victims of this weapon. which makes this weapon is controversial uranium content of which turned out according to the research still emit dangerous levels of radiation in humans.

This prove in the case in Bosnia when some Italian soldiers suffering from leukemia a few days after using these bullets. in Iraq, the tanks were destroyed by a bullet it was emitting radiation that made wrecked tanks are not safe to be approached.
