We miss you, Steven.



Remember "Gulf War syndrome" from the first Gulf War? I found out what ti is: depleted uranium poisoning. See, the Dept. of Defense still claims it's harmless and uses it now more than ever, in Abrams armor, in tank gun rounds, in 30mm ammo fired from A-10 'Warthogs' and a myriad of other uses I'm not privy to. The worst part is depleted uranium dust which is blowing around in the air all over Iraq; a single particle of it in your respiratory system is cancer-causing. The military has used over four times the amount they used in GulF War One so far in this one. So far ove r200,000 vets of Gulf War One have filed for disability from being crippled by it and are in various stages of dying miserably. Several thousand have already died. It also afflicts their spouses and their babies are even born with grotesque birth defects!!
So how about that? The Dept. of Defense "supports the troops" by first poisoning you all, then it denies it knows the cause of the "mystery illness"! This is beyond despicable and shows a total callous disregard for the well-being of its own troops. Every soldier, marine, sailor and airman should be outraged. Please pass this on to everyone you can.
