At the beginning of George W. Bush’s 2003 invasion of Iraq, hundreds of thousands of 1991 Operation Desert Storm vets suffering from Gulf War Illness were praying that United Nations weapons inspectors were right and that Bush and Cheney were lying about Saddam Hussein possessing weapons of mass destruction (WMD). After all, the ailing vets were casualties of those weapons even though the Pentagon maintains that Iraq never used them.
How could that be?
First, on the issue of weapons of mass destruction, the United States government is not a reliable source, as you know if you have been paying attention for the past six years. This is also the case with the causes of Gulf War Illness.
Second, Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction in 1991. Many were illegally supplied by the Reagan-Bush administration, in which both Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld served. Dr. Doug Rokke was a health physicist for the US Army. He was part of the professional team on the ground training the troops to protect themselves from WMDs. He is prominently featured in the DVD, Beyond Treason.
In a recent interview he informed me that Iraq employed WMDs on a limited basis via sprayers, a few missiles and land mines. But most of Iraq’s chemical, biological, and nuclear substances were delivered to our troops by their own government.
Under the direction of Secretary of Defense Cheney, the 1991 Gulf War began with a “shock and awe” bombing campaign that destroyed large biological laboratories, chemical plants, and nuclear enrichment facilities, most of them around Baghdad. As the supplier, the United States government knew the locations.
Biological, chemical and nuclear weapons damage the bodies of soldiers in distinct ways. The first employs deadly bacteria and viruses to cause known illnesses. The second uses poisonous, or toxic, substances to attack the body’s chemistry. Nuclear weapons, such as depleted uranium (DU), were unimaginable before World War II. They attack the body with invisible radioactive energy that, as you will soon read, produces a wider variety of symptoms that develop over a longer period of time. Radioactive heavy metal particles embedded in the body are both radioactive and toxic.
