Highlight: Gulf War Illness

"They would give us a big shot every month. I asked them one time, what it was, and I was told it was penicillin. Every time we got it, the entire platoon was jacked. I never thought about it at the time. I requested my medical records via FOIA and most of it was blacked out." -Anon

-http://www.nytimes.com/1994/05/07/us/experimental-drugs-linked-to-gulf-war-veterans-ills.html
Gulf War Illness has been studied since the '90s. The governmental panel in '94 downplayed pyridostigmine and pointed to stress, post traumatic disorder, and parasitic diseases. Many of the drugs had not shown vast symptomology before, which leads me to wonder if the drug mentioned is even the drug which was given to soldiers. Is the government relying on obscurity to mask their true operations? Time, it seems, will not tell in this case. They have lied for over 20 years. They will lie until most victims die, and when it's declassified they will pay the survivors, but as this article quotes someone as saying, we don't want to be paid. We want to be cured.

"Little by little the facts seeped into public view. Nearly 43,000 Gulf War veterans are stricken with debilitating illnesses: bleeding rashes, gums, and sinuses; muscle aches, swollen joints, chronic fatigue, diarrhea, hair loss, severe headaches, and memory loss. Also, over time the symptoms tend to become more acute. Many vets are now confined to wheelchairs and hospital beds...
...In addition, the syndrome appears to be contagious. Many veterans, their spouses, and scientists believe it can be passed through sex or sweat, or through the air. Apparently, veterans' wives and their unborn babies are being damaged as well. According to Michigan Senator Donald Riegel, Jr., of the 600 vets his office surveyed, 77 percent say their spouses have the symptoms, 65 percent say their postwar babies are damaged, and 25 percent report that their children born before the war have new debilitating illnesses as well. According to one medical researcher, "This is an epidemic. This is absolutely comparable to AIDS."
"
The Cause: Although speculation on the roots of this dilemma ranged from pesticides and burning oil wells to undetected Iraqi nerve gases, it appears that American troops are the only ones suffering. The ailment is largely unheard of in British, Canadian, Saudi, and Iraqi soldiers.(113) Even though the media refrained from implicating vaccines as a potential cause, it awoke the country to a national dilemma: how to support our vets who unquestionably served their country."
"
On May 6, 1994 -- 10 full days before the first stories began to circulate -- the truth was told. In an opening statement at a hearing before the Senate Committee on Veteran's Affairs, Senator John D. Rockefeller IV shared with members of the committee the results of his extensive investigation into the roots of the problem. Here are a few excerpts from that meeting:

OPENING STATEMENT
Senator John D. Rockefeller IV, Chair
Committee on Veterans' Affairs
United States Senate
Hearing
A few months ago, Americans were shocked to learn that our government had intentionally exposed thousands of U.S. citizens to radiation without their knowledge or consent. Although many of us expressed horror at the apparently unethical behavior of our government, we were all relieved to hear that such experiments had been stopped long ago.
"We'd like to think that these kinds of abuses are a thing of the past, but the legacy continues. During the Persian Gulf War, hundreds of thousands of soldiers were given experimental vaccines and drugs, and today we will hear evidence that these medical products could be causing many of the 'mysterious illnesses' those veterans are now experiencing."

""For more then 50 years, hundreds of thousands of military personnel have been involved in human experimentation and other intentional exposures conducted by the Department of Defense (DoD), often without soldiers' knowledge or consent. Our May 6, 1994, hearing examines the extent to which these exposures endangered individuals who are now veterans, and explores the implications for soldiers and veterans today...
"U.S. troops [in the Persian Gulf War] were intentionally exposed to investigational drugs and vaccines... In still other cases, soldiers were exposed to biological agents or other dangerous substances that DoD was studying; the goal was to study the substances, not their effect on humans...
"Some of the studies that have been conducted had more questionable motives. For example, DoD now admits they conducted 'Man Break' tests, exposing soldiers to chemical weapons in order to determine how much was necessary to 'break a man.' Similarly, DoD admits that they subjected hundreds/thousands of soldiers to hallucinogens without their knowledge or consent, in an effort to determine how incapacitating those substances could be. Most Americans would agree that the use of soldiers as guinea pigs in experiments that were designed to harm them...is not ethical."

"The Nuremberg Code should have guided the experiments whereby LSD and other hallucinogens were given to military servicemen in the 1950s without their knowledge or consent; however, those studies were kept secret until the mid-70s. Similarly, the Nuremberg Code should have prevented hundreds of radiation experiments that several federal agencies conducted on thousands of soldiers, veterans, and civilians during the Cold War without their knowledge or consent; however, those studies continued for years and were never made public until a few months ago."

-http://www.gulfwarvets.com/winds.htm
"Evidence indicates that the government has experimented with a very large percentage of the veterans participating not only in Operation Desert Storm, but currently with those in Bosnia as well. The American Gulf War Veteran's Association* (AGWVA) claims that 40% (280,000) of the veterans participating in the Persian Gulf hostilities have contracted some form of neuromuscular or skin disorders. Among the most prominent are:

Guillain-Barré, syndrome (acute idiopathic polyneuritis)
Lou Gerig's Disease (ALS - amyotrophic lateral sclerosis)
multiple sclerosis
Scleroderma
lupus"

"Executive order gives DOD power to use investigational drugs on military...Feds say rules improve safeguards, critics say it will erode their rights"

-http://henrymakow.com/2014/09/Troops-Got-Nerve-Gas-Vaccine.html
""The U.S. Government is never going to finger themselves as the culprit. The U.S. Government is never going to admit they not just exposed young American boys to the cause of Gulf War Illness, but order them to orally injest it."  - David Douthit, who became insane after receiving this "vaccine" by Veteran Affairs doctors in 2012. Yes, they are still using this nerve gas as medicine."

-http://www.projectcensored.org/21-blood-tests-suggest-reason-behind-gulf-war-syndrome/
"Gulf War-related illnesses are rampant among American war veterans. One suggestion as to the cause of the illnesses has surfaced with new blood tests on the most seriously ill victims. A synthetic substance, squalene, banned for use in humans, has been found in blood tests of hundreds of sick Gulf War veterans, some of whom never left U.S. soil. Complicating the issue is the U.S. Department of Defense’s “loss” of over 700,000 service-related immunization records, which might provide a clue as to why squalene is showing up in Gulf War veterans’ blood samples."

-http://www.i-sis.org.uk/VGWS.php
"Dr. Mae-Wan Ho and Prof. Malcolm Hooper report on evidence linking vaccines to Gulf-War Syndrome and the controversial US Department of Defence program to immunize millions of service personnel against anthrax."
On another page,
http://www.i-sis.org.uk/membership.php, "It is with great sadness that the Institute of Science in Society is to cease operation at the end of March 2016 on account of serious illness of our Director Dr Mae-Wan Ho."

-http://www.autoimmune.com/GWSGen.html
"Data published in the February 2000 and August 2002 issues of Experimental and Molecular Pathology strongly suggests that Gulf War Syndrome is caused by a vaccine contaminated with squalene."

Joyce Riley, vaccine-injured

Do you know of her? She has her own radio show on GCN. She was vaccine-injured in first Gulf war. She has done so much for vets. Contact her. God bless.

This Joyce Riley? http://gulfwarvets.com/bio.htm
Why does it say in my google results, under her webpage, "This site may be hacked"???

It's a link, and Google seems to be giving me a warning:

Re: Joyce Riley, vaccine-injured

I do like this documentary she wrote and produced though!
-http://www.merdb.es/watch-542552-Beyond-Treason.html
"Beyond Treason: This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of unknown causes, they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their disposable army mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a mystery disease. How many more will have to die before action is taken?"

Seattle.

Hi Josh,

I'm Seattle based, and received 5 inoculations for Anthrax that have destroyed my life. I was 22, loadmaster in peak physical condition according to the flight surgeon before Anthrax. I have been diagnosed with Lupus SLE but many of my symptoms are similar.

I have all my medical records and shot records if you would like to meet up. I have an active Rheumalogist at Univ of Washington and frequent blood work if you need it for research.

Re: Seattle.

Thank you for the reply. I'm interested in chatting more about this. I've sent you a message.

Stand Up Together

I suffer from GWI and have been fighting for years to get recognition and effective treatment for this illness. Most of the VA providers have never even heard of GWI at least in Winston Salem and Salisbury NC which makes Tom McDonald seem like a liar when he tells us that he is making sure all providers know about this syndrome and know how treat it. At the end of 2014 my conditions drastically became debilitating and I had to go out of work. My company will not honor the disability insurance I paid for and the VA keeps denying my claims for disability rating and social security keeps denying as well. So I am sicker than I have ever been in my life, teetering on the edge of being homeless again while I have to not only fight for benefits but I also have to fight to get treatment in the hopes of at least being able to regain some quality of life. I have contacted countless Veteran Organizations and not one of them is willing to help. They only help post 911 veterans they say. It is sad to say but veterans who lost a limb are the lucky ones. They get treated, they get benefits, they get charity and houses and parades and medals and very deservedly so. We live in chronic severe pain all over our body. We live with severe fatigue. We deal with skin and rashes that itch all over. We deal with constant gastrointestinal issues. We deal with migraines and headaches. We spend our lives laying down often times writhing in pain. There are many other symptoms and issues we deal with as well please google it. 250000 of us in the US deal with this every day. I think the fact that no one has gone postal on the VA and IOM is sufficient proof that this is not some kind of mental defect. But the time has come for all 250000 of us and our friends and family and researchers to stand together and call the President and Congress, and lodge complaints on IRIS and with the VA and any other outlet you can think of. I am doing this as I can in my condition but I am one person. Together we can make a huge difference to wake America up to see how we are being treated. Demand of your VA provider that you get treated for GWI with the most recent research available every time you go to the VA. If we band together and all of us keep informed and keep demanding benefits and treatment and diagnosis then it will not be just one crazy vet but 250000 hero’s.

Re: Stand Up Together

1. There are no veteran's organizations that "only help post 9/11 Vets".
2. No amount of demanding benefits, or calling the President and Congress, is going to force the government to change their stance on anything.
3. If you're for real, and not just here to manipulate my readers, then I suggest you contact your local American Legion.
4. I'm not against talking to you further, and I hope I'm wrong, but there are far too many holes in what you're saying.
No, Post 9/11 Vets do not get charity houses, parades and medals, while other vets do not. That's just silly. If you were actually a vet, you'd know.
