Gulf War Syndrome: Killing Our Own

After the Vietnam War, hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans suffered toxic reactions, neurological damage, and rare cancers due to exposure to 2,4,5,-D and 2,4,5-T dioxin that was used in the form of the defoliant Agent Orange. Unfortunately, the U.S. military denied the problem and failed to heed any of the lessons of this chemical butchery. Instead, it expanded its harmful legacy to the current generation of soldiers and civilians exposed to new, more deadly chemical toxins in the Persian Gulf.

Join accomplished filmmaker Gary Null, PhD, as he explores the real truth about Gulf War Syndrome and the secrets about chemical and germ warfare that the U.S. government is hiding from its veterans and the public. Dr. Null uncovers the hidden truths about Gulf War Syndrome, including the deadly and toxic effects of armor-piercing radioactive depleted uranium, the use of experimental and risky vaccines on over 1,100,000 U.S. troops, and the indescribable chemical contamination and environmental devastation that the military caused during the Persian Gulf Wars.

In this film, Dr. Null relies on compelling testimony from eyewitnesses who served in the military, leading doctors and scientists who specialize in chemical exposure, and those veterans still suffering from the effects of their tours of duty.

    this is not happy veiwing.I’m a gulf war veteran and have had many problems since 1991.Also the use of depleted uranium is paramount to GENOCIDE of the Iraqi people.I honestly beleive George Bush junior and senior are two of the most evil men to have ever walked this earth.

      though i respect your service and your true insider knowledge i have to ask the question about depleted uranium. do you in your own opinion think that it is the munitions ( heavy metals i.e uranium) or the exposure to chemical/ bio weapons that is to blame? the documentary never really specified which it was u see, i happen to know a fair bit about radiation but not the bio and would appreciate the info.

    Wonderful publish, very informative. I wonder why the other specialists of this sector do not understand this. You must continue your writing. I’m confident, you’ve a great readers’ base already!|What’s Taking place i’m new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It positively useful and it has aided me out loads. I am hoping to give a contribution & aid other customers like its aided me. Great job.

    this is a bit over the top, every1 knows and has known the multiple problems and reasons for the g.w.s but every war has had similar. Vietnam had chemical weapons used on it to kill regions of jungle with side effects . ww2 had cordite poisoning that took the lives of many women working in the munitions factories . even if you could get the government to admit the responsibility they still wouldnt do anything about it they would simply pass the blame on to an “escape goat” company. also this documentary was very one sided , did any one interview a nuclear physists about the uranium used ? did anyone ask for an interview with the generals and heads of state at the time ?

    Depleted uranium (DU) was widely used in tank kinetic energy penetrator andautocannon rounds for the first time ever during the Gulf War[31][32] and has been suggested as a possible cause of Gulf War syndrome.[33] A 2008 review by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs found no association between DU exposure and multisymptom illness, concluding that “exposure to DU munitions is not likely a primary cause of Gulf War illness”. However, there are suggestions that long-term exposure to high doses of DU may cause other health problems unrelated to GWS.[6]

    In the Balkans war zone depleted uranium was also used, however no GWS-like symptoms or illnesses have been identified. This is seen as evidence of DU munitions’ safety.[31] While depleted uranium from shrapnel fragments has been shown to move into neurological tissues, this has not been linked to any adverse effects, and comparisons between veterans with embedded DU fragments and those without have not found any consistent differences. A group of veterans with high levels of uranium in their urine from embedded particles have been monitored for any adverse health effects of these particles dissolving, and no such effects have been identified.

    Iraq had loaded anthrax, botulinum toxin, and aflatoxin into missiles and artillery shells in preparing for the Gulf War and these munitions were deployed to four locations in Iraq.[35] During Operation Desert Storm, 41% of U.S. combat soldiers and 75% of UK combat soldiers were vaccinated against anthrax.[36] Reactions included local skin irritation, some lasting for weeks or months.[37]While the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the vaccine, it never went through large-scale clinical trials, unlike most other vaccines in the United States.[38]

    While recent studies have demonstrated the vaccine is highly reactogenic,[39] and causes motor neuron death in mice,[40] there is no clear evidence or epidemiological studies on Gulf War veterans linking the vaccine to Gulf War Syndrome. Combining this with the lack of symptoms from current deployments of individuals who have received the vaccine led the Committee on Gulf War Veterans’ Illnesses to conclude that the vaccine is not a likely cause of Gulf War illness for most ill veterans.
