Reference Sentinel-Echo's article "Vietnam vets hear about Agent Orange effects on families" written by Ms. Nita Johnson, Staff Writer.
Ms. Johnson's article should anger former service members not only for their exposures but the Johnson's Administration lie that changed the military mission from one of supporting a SEATO (Southeast Asia Treaty Organization) nation member to one of aggression against North Vietnam and the Communist allies.
However, unknown to most U.S. citizens, demands by Standard Oil New Jersey and other fossil fuel corporations plus Wall Street Investors to acquire fossil fuel reserves in Southeast Asia and South China Sea Spartly islands was the driving factor for US military involvement.
The Persian Gulf War, 1990/1991 was the results of a conversation between US Ambassador to Iraq, the honorable April Glaspie, and President Saddam Hussein where Arnbassador Glaspie told President Hussein "Kuwait is not associate with America." Iraq invaded Kuwait shortly after said conversation.
Of the seven hundred thousand US forces, active, guard, reserve, deployed to remove Iraqi Force from Kuwait, the Department of Defense acknowledges approximately two hundred thousand service members have filed disability claims for ailments commonly known as Gulf War Syndrome Symptoms.
The Department of Veterans Affairs doesn't recognize the term Gulf War Syndrome Symptoms because symptoms vary; whereas, the VA refers to the illness as "chronic multisymptom illness" and "undiagnosed illness."
The Department of Veterans Affairs established the following ailments as presumptive diseases related to Gulf War service without regard to cause:
"Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), a condition of long-term and severe fatigue that is not relieved by rest and is not directly caused by other conditions. "
"Fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by widespread muscle pain. Other symptoms may include insomnia, morning stiffness, headache, and memory problems. "
"Functional gastrointestinal disorders, a group of conditions marked by chronic or recurrent symptoms related to any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Functional conditions refers to an abnormal function of an organ, without a structural alternation in the tissues. Examples include irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia, and functional abdominal pain syndrome."
"Undiagnosed illness with symptoms that may include but not limited to abnormal weight loss, fatigue, cardiovascular disease, muscle and joint pain, headache, menstrual disorders, neurological and psychological problems, skin conditions, respiratory disorders, and sleep disturbances. "
From multi-hours of research, we learned the Department of Defense ordered all military and contract employees deployment to Southwest Asia (Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc) and the Republic of South Korea will be administered a series of anti-Anthrax immunizations.
In the 1980S, Department of Defense contractors required their employees deploying to Southwest Asia to intake a regiment of pridostigimine bromide pills.
With regard to the anti-Anthrax vaccine and pridostigimine bromide pills were alleged medications to prevent deaths of personnel in the event of exposure to nerve agents. Sadly, neither of the medications was approved by the Federal Drug Administration.
We must end Central Bank directed wars and threats of war. The people die, not politicians.
