Our Vets Health Future

May 22, 2011

Originally published February 26, 2010 as “Is The Government Killing Us?”

For many years now I have wondered why I have the medical afflictions I have. For example, why my youngest daughter was born with epilepsy. I have also spent ample time pondering why so many of my fellow vets have died or fallen ill since returning from the Persian Gulf. I have not found a single answer to these questions, but many answers, that if proven to be true, could destroy the credibility (what little is left) of the U.S. Government. This is about Gulf War Illness; It’s possible causes, it’s cover-up, and the Governments failure to honor their agreement with the men and women who served this nation proudly and honorably. I will use the most credible evidence I can find, both in written form and video form, to build a case against the U.S. Government.

Gulf War Illness, for many vets, is a very debilitating medical problem. To date, no cause has been determined, or at least no cause has been admitted to by those in the government responsible for determining such. I would like to discuss the possible causes that I have found, how they apply to GWI, and how they came to be a deadly aspect of so many lives. Here’s description of what GWI is from Wiki:

Gulf War syndrome (GWS) or Gulf War illness (GWI) affects veterans and civilians who were near conflicts during, or downwind of a chemical weapons depot demolition after, the 1991 Gulf War. A wide range of acute and chronic symptoms have included fatigue, loss of muscle control, headaches, dizziness and loss of balance, memory problems, muscle and joint pain, indigestion, skin problems, immune system problems, and birth defects. Roughly one in four of the 697,000 veterans who served in the first Gulf War are afflicted with the controversial disorder, a real condition with real causes and serious consequences.

This video is from 2007 and covers, in detail, the medical issues and causes that I will discuss. The video is somewhat long and you may want to view it during the slow parts of the day or days ahead.

Desert Storm and Chemical/Biological Weapons:

As I write this, there is no absolute proof that Iraq used these agents against our forces. I was 50 KM or so inside Saudi Arabia during the Scud/Patriot duels. The closest impact was 1/4 of a mile to our north, causing a large crater next to our alert jets. Only minor damage was done and NO chem’s were detected. Our sensors only activated 6 times, for a short period of time near the end of the conflict. The wind was coming from the direction of Iraq. It is reported than 14,000 alarms activated for chem’s during this conflict, amazingly, the Government initially denied any contamination, only to later change their story several times, finally concluding that up to 100,000 troops could have been affected, mainly from the destruction of storage facilities.

It is possible that exposure to these toxic fumes was a complete mistake, and the air currents were not considered when the weapon depots containing them where blown up. It is also possible that exposure could be the sole cause of GWI, except for the fact that no chemical weapon depots were destroyed during the course of the second gulf war, and troops are still getting sick. Why then would the government try to deny this occurrence?

Some excerpts with link: For five years after the war, the Pentagon and the VA refused to admit that our troops had been exposed to chemical weapons, via the same sort of despicable delaying tactics our Vietnam vets were subjected to over their Agent Orange claims.

…clouds that blew over our troops when captured Iraqi chemical-warfare weaponry was destroyed by Army engineers.

So far, according to an April 2002 Department of Veterans Affairs report, an additional 7,758 Desert Storm vets have died while 198,716 vets have filed claims for medical and compensation benefits. Of the claims filed, 156,031 have been granted as service-connected, with more vets being designated casualties as each day passes. The 198,716 figure represents a staggering 28 percent of the vets – 696,579 – who fought in the Gulf War conflict!

These are Stats from 2002, 8 years ago. Here’s a news story from 2006:

Government: Gulf War Illness Doesn’t Exist,2933,213483,00.html

After everything I have read on this chemical exposure, I have concluded that it was not the sole cause of GWI, but quite possibly a trigger that acted with other entities.

Both Gulf Wars: The use of Uranium and Depleted Uranium weapons.

Depleted Uranium and uranium is used in providing weapons (bombs, tank shells, high caliber munitions) with a ballistic “tip” that is twice the density of lead. This allows the munitions to pierce steel armor, concrete and other hardened structures as if these were made of butter. In their unused munition condition, they have very low radioactivity. When used, the DU or UR will pulverize, entering and clinging to air molecules, dust, sand, buildings, etc. The bigger the munition, the more pulverized material, the more radioactive it is. We all know that exposure to anything radioactive is bad for us, here are some facts about these weapons:

1- The USA and UK continuously used Depleted Uranium weapons against the population and environment in Iraq from 1991 until today.

2- Occupation forces in Iraq intentionally denied and covered up the types, locations and amounts of weapons that were used to prevent taking measures which could reduce health damages resulting from LLR exposure.

3- Occupation forces prohibited UNEP, WHO and other international agencies to conduct any exploration programs to assess the health risks to the people of Iraq of these radioactive contaminants.

4- Forbidding the release of any casualty statistics by the health ministry in Iraq right after the occupation is part of the crime that has been continuously committed against Iraq and Iraqis.

5- Exploration programs and site measurements proved without a doubt that the existence of DU related radioactive contamination all over most of Iraq (except the northern area of Kurdistan).

6- Published epidemiological studies in Basrah introduced a clear correlation between DU related exposure to LLR and the multifold increase of malignancies, congenital malformations and multiple malformations in detected DU contaminated areas.

7- Other pathological and hematological studies indicated the existence of chromosomal and DNA aberrations and abnormalities in the 1991 Iraqi Gulf War veterans. Other studies proved their effects on lowering the activities of the human immune system in exposed individuals.

8- Iraqi researchers’ site measurements of 2000 revealed the fact that the Muthana governorate and Al-Samawa city were contaminated since 1991. This fact was proven by the Dutch troops in 2003, and then the American Guardsmen who served in that area after the invasion and confirmed exposure to DU contamination after coming back home by Dr. Drakovic.

9- Intentional continuous use of DU against the people and environment of Iraq is a crime against humanity due to its undifferentiated harmful health impacts on civilian long times after the military operations. Existing DU contamination in the surrounding environment is a continuous source of (LLR) exposure to civilians which can be considered systematic attacks on civilians in an armed conflict. Article 4 of the official regulations and Article 7 of the ICC.

While my knowledge is short on the science of DU and exposure to it, I do know that our troops who have been in Iraq for lengthy periods of time are certainly subject to the worst case effects of this contamination. There is enough pulverized DU to equal 14,000+ Little Boys (the bomb that fell on Hiroshima) in Iraq. Is this a problem? The fact that many vets children are being born with many different defects, which is a result of GWI, I have concluded that exposure to the dust of deleted uranium and pure uranium tipped weapons should be considered as a main source of GWI. With all the scientific knowledge of this, why would our government knowingly expose over 1.1 million Americans to this? Let’s not forget that most of the population of Iraq breaths this everyday. Is this not a crime?

Innoculations of all veterans

As any vet would know, we all turn into pincushions with the amount of vaccinations we were required to take. Here is a list of available vaccinations:

Vaccines Available in the US

Vaccine Type

Anthrax, Inactivated bacteria

BCG (for tuberculosis), Live Mycobacteria bovi

Diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (DTaP or Tdap) Toxoids and inactivated bacterial components

There is much controversy about immunizations and vaccinations, at this time, there have been no admissions that these are a single cause of the problems. There are, however, more than just whats on this list that are required by our servicemembers. I certainly have concerns as to what is actually in these vaccinations. It’s known that they may contain mercury, alluminum and Squaline, but what else could be hiding in there?

Military Experimentation

Lastly, vets and current active duty being used for human testing without their knowledge.

We’ve all seen the old videos of atomic testing, so it’s a given that the troops have been used as test subjects. The most recent findings are even more disturbing. Are our troops used for human experiments without their knowledge?

Dr. Garth L. Nicolson, Ph.D., is a Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. He is also the Chief Scientific Officer for the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Huntington Beach, California, and has personally examined almost two-hundred veterans suffering from Gulf War Syndrome.

During those examinations, Dr. Nicolson found that nearly half of the veterans were infected with an unusual microorganism called mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain). In almost half of the vets examined these exceptionally tiny and primitive bacteria were found deep within the blood leukocytes–the white blood cells that comprise the most aggressive part of the body’s immune system machinery. “This microorganism,” Nicolson explains, “is similar to a bacterium without a cell wall and, although mycoplasmas are often found at superficial sites in humans, such as in the oral cavity, they are rarely found in the blood.”

So how does a microorganism associated with the HIV virus end up in the bloodstream of so many soldiers? Were they unknowingly used for secret tests?

This is just the tip of the iceberg. In compiling all of this information, I intentionally avoided any government / government funded studies, to include the U.N. and the WHO. I have also gave little from the MSM, as I have more evidence that they are part of the cover-up, rather than reporting the truth. I made a specific effort to use sources that would provide unbiased information, that can be reviewed logically. The truth, involving anything the government does, is a very difficult thing to obtain!

Looking at all the possible causes of GWI, with chemical weapon exposure being the least likely, the use of depleted uranium and uranium tipped munitions and the nermerous vaccinations with few people know what is actually in them, I have concluded that the government has knowingly done a great wrong to the very people that protect them and us. I do not equate this to some wild conspiracy theory, this is really happening!

I have many questions, is government knowingly murdering our servicemembers? How can those responsible be held accountable? Why would government do this? How can the vets fight back against an enemy that hides behind white coats and government titles?

Could it be that weakening the strongest and youngest vets has an ulterior motive, one that leads to total tyranny?

Or could it be that they only care about their agenda and power?

    Why would government do this? ~ Dead Vetrans don’t collect benefits…..same as ObamaCare = Dead Baby Boomers. Oh, What a savings!

    if u look up some things on this here internet, u will find evidence that certain groups of people want the population of the planet reduced by 80%, the bilderberg group, illuminati, etc. the chemicals they use to mass produce food are staggering proofs of what they are trying to accomplish. monsanto, look up some of the ugly they are doing. all the anti biotics are a sure source of our weakened immune systems. they use these in our food supplies saying it is for the greater good, greater good for whom, them not us, the world has survived without these chemical additives for all these years, we do not need this junk in our food supply, they put it there to in essence anialate us. keep up the good work g,

    I came up in age during and after the Vietnam War. The problems associated with Agent Orange was the 400lb Gorilla for many a decade. And in the end, seemingly a light came on in the collective reasoning of The U.S. Government which in turn became the way forward in benefits, studies, treatment, burials and “The Truth” behind agent orange. Alas too late for so many men, but not too late for the following generation.
    Now the following generation has inherited The GWS, its real and so many now suffer untold years of pain, loss of life, livelihood and any reward for a Job well Done. Sadly the light has not come on yet. We wait and ponder, sadly.

    My Daddy is 100% disabled due to that damn Agent Orange. I myself have health problems, a lot of the same ones he has, but have no proof it is related.

    He is one of the few with that disability benefit and it took him a LONG time to get it.

    It took literally YEARS for the U.S. to admit this problem. How long will it take them to admit this?

    Thank God for the Internet. I have been researching my ailments for approximately two months – didn’t take a long time to figure out what is wrong w/ my health and that there is a treatment, not a cure, for GWI … Research Garth Nicolson, Ph.D. and Nancy Nicolson, Ph.D

    My husband did three tours. Desert Shield/Desert Storm and OIF. He was KIA during OIF. For years 1993-2005, I watched him suffer from joint pain, gas/abdominal problems, headaches (blood headache) ect. I want to know if the family could have been ecposed to this? I’ve been sick with flu like symptoms, elevated white blood cells, bone marrow testing, lymtjnode swollen and remove for testing. My husband had a storke returning in 2003 from Iraq at age 33. He was tested and had 1) myeloproligerative disorder 2) thrombocytosis 3) Factor V Leiden mutation 4) elevated anticatdiolipin antibody IgG ni. Igm. I was on a “I need to know based” Ha. Well after death Ive had questions and No one to give answers.Bethesna had No clue of him being there? Funny I wad with him for two biospy’s. Spoke with Doctors, yet asking for records and he doesn’t excite. Help, were do you go for info. My son is now 11. I want to know what was wrong with him and is my son health ok for future.
