    U.S. Nerve Gas Hit Our Own Troops in Iraq

    During and immediately after the first Gulf War, more than 200,000 of 700,000 U.S. troops sent to Iraq and Kuwait in January 1991 were exposed to nerve gas and other chemical agents. Though aware of this, the Department of Defense and CIA launched a campaign of lies and concocted a cover-up that continues today.


    A quarter of a century later, the troops nearest the explosions are dying of brain cancer at two to three times the rate of those who were farther away. Others have lung cancer or debilitating chronic diseases, and pain.


    More complications lie ahead.

    Shows what they really think about the troops.

    None of these politicians give one damn about the troops we are just talking points to win votes, they are willing to sacrifice our lives in any circumstance regardless if we are actually defending the United states. Lost too many brothers in Iraq because of that war based on total bs. Speaking of the second one.

    I was in first gulf war and I have no doubt that there is a correlation.
    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. We were also doing our experimental anthrax and botulism vaccines, I'm sure that didn't help.
    Fair and Balanced lol

    Personally, how our country (mis)treats our veterans and the complete disregard for their care post service is on of the things that makes me the angriest. And it's not even one party, the US government as a whole has not adequetely taken care of our veterans. It's sad and shameful.
    Enjoy your burrito.

    This is especially true of PTSD, which a lot of people still don't respect as an actual diagnosis. Such a sad thing...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    Sure more could have been done, but this is Monday morning QB stuff.
    Going forward, we should just bomb whomever we are in conflict with daisy cutters and MOAB's, send the occupants of that region to oblivion, and call it a day.
    Their indigenous population is not is as important as our soldiers lives IMHO. War is hell.
    We should be more selective regarding our enemies that pose an immediate threat, instead of continual police actions.
    For example Saudi Arabia and Iran. If we really wanted peace in the middle east, those 2 countries should be ground zero.
    Otherwise we are wasting our time.
