Gulf War Syndrome

       Mary Christine, MSW, holds a Master of Social Work degree as well as a BA in Psychology with a minor in Human Biology. Christine got CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in October of 1990 after having mycoplasmic pneumonia and was quite debilitated for about a year. Her strength and endurance slowly improved with rest etc. over time. She had been functioning very well for the past few years and until recently she was working as a therapist for adolescents. However, Christine recently had a relapse after having a cough, a high fever for four days, and a sinus infection. Christine bought a new car about two and a half weeks before having the relapse. She has recently learned that the chemicals found in new cars such as formaldehyde can cause people with CFS and people testing positive for the mycoplasma infection described in this article to become ill with a high fever, cough, etc. and can trigger the onset of or a relapse of CFS. Adverse reactions to chemicals has been termed multiple chemical sensitivity or environmental allergies. Since having the relapse Christine has experienced MCS in response to paint fumes. Also, since having the relapse she has been unable to work due to not being able to walk very far. However, she has been researching the relationship between CFS and Gulf War Syndrome.


         Christine reports that current research which allegedly the U.S. government is attempting to destroy is showing that CFS and Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) are caused by chronic infectious agents which have long incubation periods ranging from months to years. The chronic infections can result in increased sensitivity to chemicals. However, at least in the vast majority of cases, exposure to chemicals alone is not the cause of Gulf War Syndrome (or CFS) as some propose. In this article Christine shows how the United States Government with collaborators outside and within the country being directed by those above the White House with the power and money who control much of what goes on in this country and the world, including much of the research that goes on in universities, is controlling population growth and attempting to decrease the world population through abusive, oppressive means with no regard for human life. Specifically, she discusses Gulf War Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome as illnesses created by the U.S. Government. She refers to an official government document, the 1969 hearings before the Subcommittee of the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives (91st Congress) which were held to determine the appropriation of funds for the Department of Defense for 1970. The appropriations were passed in 1970. On June 9, 1969, Dr. Donald M. MacArthur, Deputy Director of Defense Research and Engineering in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, testified before Congress on U.S. involvement regarding chemical and biological warfare. Excerpts from this testimony are included below. Many think this testimony was calling for the creation of AIDS.

        Christine notes that Dr. Leonard Horowitz and Dr. Alan Cantwell have documented that our country has a long history of biological warfare research. She says that although few Americans are aware even vaguely aware of it, the U.S. Army has a Biological and Chemical Warfare Department, located at Fort Detrick, Maryland. In the late 60's Nixon renounced germ warfare, except for "medical defensive research". This "defensive" research continues and primarily centers around vaccine development and genetic engineering of infectious agents capable of infecting large masses of people. On December 23, 1971 Nixon signed the National Cancer Act, officially beginning the so-called War on Cancer. Also in 1971, a large part of the army's biological warfare unit was transferred to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) under orders from President Nixon. As Christine reports, many books have been written on the creation of AIDS. Christine encourages all readers to obtain and read a book by Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Emerging Viruses: Aids & Ebola, Nature Accident, or Intentional?, which was recently released. She says this is a very important book and that it can be ordered through major bookstores or by calling, toll free, 1-800-336-9266. Also you can call this number to ask questions and find out how to organize political action events. She also says very important information can be obtained through Dr. Horowitz's Web Site Tetrahedron, LLC.Org including information on the creating of the AIDS virus as well as the full text of a paper presented on this topic by Dr. Horowitz, Dr. Robert Strecker, Dr. Alan Cantwell, and two other authors (D. Vid, and G. Grossman) at the XI International Conference on AIDS.

        Other information which can be downloaded from this web site includes a chapter by chapter summary of the book and information on the key players, economically and scientifically, in what Horowitz feels could be intentional efforts to create illnesses. This web site also contains information on the role of the Rockefeller family in this topic and information on population control as well as the role of the CIA and the Nazi roots of the CIA. Descriptions of presentations Dr. Horowitz gives and a calendar of his speaking engagements is also provided. One of the descriptions states, "This program was developed to help health professionals make more informed decisions about prevention, patient education, and treatment options for a host of modern infectious immunodeficiency diseases. Dr. Horowitz presents a frank and fascinating thesis on the political and public health implications of mass immunization practices, their true risks versus benefits, and how viral vaccine contaminants might be linked to our modern and coming plagues including AIDS, Ebola, chronic fatigue, Gulf-War syndrome, certain cancers, and others." In another presentation description Horowitz states, "Not so long ago I considered myself a lifelong liberal Democrat...I now see that Democrats and Republicans are not so opposite faces on the same corrupt coin. I learned that the principle purpose of focusing attention on `child abuse' and the `failed family institution,' was not to solve our nations woes, but to persuade the public to accept a covert social/political agenda which has been unfolding for over two decades. Its aim? To reform America's social welfare, criminal justice and health care systems to consolidate control and distribute vast wealth among a core group of policy makers: the multinational power and financial elite. Bigger government, more taxes, less constitutional rights, and more Gestapo agents will not solve our social and financial woes. The `failed family' is mostly a symptom of dehumanizing government programs and increased tax burdens which have made it progressively more difficult for two parent families to spend quality time together while improving their standard of living."

        Christine says that the first purpose of these articles is to provide information to sick Gulf War vets or others who have caught Gulf War Syndrome as well as those who are suffering from what the government (the CDC) has termed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Christine says that in addition to the scientific facts (which have been published in respected medical journals) to be reported on (mainly the research of Dr. Garth Nicolson and Dr. Nancy Nicolson) it is important that readers are informed of the larger factors which have led to the intentional creation and use of biological warfare. She says that understanding issues such as population control and goals towards a "New World Order" or one world government with its aim as Horowitz puts it to, "consolidate and distribute vast wealth among a core group" are essential to understanding why well respected doctors and scientists are alleging that the AIDS virus is man-made and may have intentionally been transmitted to gay men in New York and Africans in Central Africa in vaccines as well as to understanding why the Nicolson doctors are finding an infectious microorganism with the HIV-1 envelope gene inserted into it (which they say could not have occurred in nature) in about half the Gulf War vets they have tested who have symptoms consistent with CFS and in some CFS patients with no relationship to the Gulf War and why in regard to the vets the Nicolsons write, "we consider the most likely sources of potential chronic infectious agents to be the vaccines and Iraqi offensive CBW weapons". Christine says that although terms such as `New World Order' are sometimes associated with `extreme right wing' thinking she, like Horowitz, has always considered herself to be fairly liberal, politically. Christine also points out that the rapper, Dr. Dre, who is popular with many rap fans, has a CD that will be released into the stores on November 26 titled, "Dr. Dre Presents...the Aftermath". She says Dre has already performed a song "Been there...Done that" on Saturday Night Live in which he sings that, "money is the root of all evil

Christine also points out that the rapper, Dr. Dre, who is popular with many rap fans, has a CD that will be released into the stores on November 26 titled, "Dr. Dre Presents...the Aftermath". She says Dre has already performed a song "Been there...Done that" on Saturday Night Live in which he sings that, "money is the root of all evil" and in which he refers to "Rockefeller" and the "Illuminati". She says that Dre's video for this as well as another song on the same CD, "Group Therapy", in which a woman's voice announces "This is the New World Order" and says there will be no more constitutional rights have recently appeared on MTV. Christine says she has always felt and continues to feel strongly that all individuals and all groups in society should have equal access to self-empowerment and that conditions in society should be such that individuals, groups, and families have the freedom to live up to their ultimate potentials. She says that she has found out that in many ways people in this country and the world are being oppressed and held back from reaching their potentials through efforts by those in the highest positions of power who desire the `masses' to be dependent upon them. She says, ironically, often their oppressive actions and efforts to increase dependency are disguised as empowering, progressive social programs. Christine says just one example is mass vaccination campaigns. Christine says that by reading and understanding Horowitz's book as well as this article readers will realize why the United States government is trying to destroy the research of Dr. Garth Nicolson and Dr. Nancy Nicolson and why it is not the agenda of the United States government to solve the `mystery' of the `mystery diseases'...Gulf War Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and why this country can not trust the CIA to get to the bottom of the allegations that the CIA was complicit in causing urban America's slow death by crack cocaine which has been destructive to the lives of countless Americans and disproportionally to African-Americans. Christine says that given the role the current CIA director John Deutch has played in perpetrating the crimes of "Gulf War Gate" and the cover-up of Gulf War Syndrome it is illogical to think he can be trusted to direct a CIA internal investigation regarding the allegations that the agency has played a role in promoting the crack trade and epidemic in this country. Christine says that although the majority of the United States citizens and the people of the world don't realize it the "behind the scenes rulers" of this country and the world have employed pure genius in working to achieve their agenda which is the exact opposite of what is portrayed to the people of this country and the world as the goals of the United States government. She says their goal is to maximize their power, control, and wealth at the expense of the power, control, health, wealth, and freedom of the people or the "masses". She adds that these "multinational power and financial elite" have brilliantly used differences among people to incite hate and blame for societal conditions and problems which they have created and promoted. She says that the same ones who have created the various crises then develop and creatively market "solutions" to these created crises which then serve to further their goals. Christine notes that the pure genius they employ is pure evil. Christine also notes that as people educate themselves and others regarding the true agenda of the "multinational power and financial elite" these elitists will lose power. She points out a quote used by Horowitz in the front of his book, "To do evil a human being must first of all believe what he is doing is good....Ideology---that is what gives devil doing its long-sought justification and gives the devil doer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes, so that he won't hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors. --Russian dissident Alexander Solzhenitsyn". Christine says that it is often those who are most victimized by these intentionally created crises that are then effectively, although sometimes indirectly, scapegoated as the cause of their problem. She says, though, the problem is only publicly portrayed as a real problem and concern until time and conditions have allowed it to affect people falling outside of the group that was initially targeted to suffer the crisis. Christine says that the purpose of dividing the people and inciting hate and blame is to create chaos and confusion and to divert attention away from fighting the common often unseen and unknown enemy of freedom, health, and happiness...the extremely wealthy and powerful international elite. Christine adds that this tactic is extremely powerful and effective and although it is often overlooked to the detriment of those fighting for freedom it should never be underestimated. Christine believes if this tactic could be deactivated those who rule the world with their money and power from behind the scenes in a very oppressive manner with no respect for human life or human rights would lose considerable power and control. However, she points out that these elitists prey on our tendencies to fear people who are different or unfamiliar to us and through this tactic alone are able to amass tremendous power and control.

        Christine says that more and more Americans are becoming aware of Gulf War Syndrome and alleged government cover-ups regarding GWS. For example, she refers to an October 30, 1996 Chicago Tribune article titled, "Gulf war illness cover-up is alleged, Analysts: CIA knew of 60 chemical arms incidents", which reports that two CIA intelligence analysts, husband and wife, Patrick and Robin Eddington, who resigned from the CIA this year, "say the agency possesses dozens of classified documents showing that tens of thousands of Americans may have been exposed to Iraqi chemical weapons during the Persian Gulf war in 1991." The article reports that, "they say that, when they insisted on pursuing the inquiry over the protests of senior officials, their promising careers were effectively destroyed." It is reported that, "After the war, Eddington said, he collected 59 classified intelligence reports from agency files and computer banks that provided 'very, very specific' information about the presence of chemical weapons in southern Iraq and Kuwait during the war." It is reported that the Eddington's say they, "turned up evidence of as many as 60 incidents in which nerve gas and other chemical weapons were released in the vicinity of the troops." The Tribune further reports that, "Eddington, 33, who is preparing to publish a book outling his allegations against the CIA, said government officials who had overseen investigations of gulf war illnesses 'have lied, are continuing to lie, are continuing to withhold information'." Christine says that the government cover-up involves covering up not only chemical weapon exposures, but exposures to biological weapons.

        Discussions regarding efforts to control and limit population growth through abortion, environmental issues, etc. occur. However, discussions of efforts by the United States government in collaboration with foreign governments to decrease the population through created illnesses are rare and do not occur in the major/controlled/mainstream media of this country. Many readers will find these revelations depressing at best: U.S. officials involved with the1991 Gulf War have allegedly committed treason--exposing at least half a million Desert Stormers to a germ-warfare agent that U.S. scientists created, violating U.S. laws and international treaties, but that the Department of Defense denies. Because the illness is contagious it is not only veterans but their family members and the public who are at risk. The good news is that when diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion many have found that an inexpensive antibiotic eases their symptoms. On a larger scale, ample evidence exists to expose and punish the perpetrators of this horrific and abusive covert operation against American Veterans and the American people as a whole. Exposed, the truth of the acts and actors behind the Gulf War Illness may serve to wake up America to the plans for the so-called New World Order or One World Government.

        On August 12, 1996 the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ran an article written in Washington and provided to the Post by the New York Times News Service titled, "War Veterans Claim Iraqi Chemical Arms Affected Their Health". The article opens with, "After years of Pentagon denials, a group of veterans of the Persian Gulf War is offering the first compelling evidence that American troops were exposed to Iraqi chemical weapons." It continues, "The soldiers and former soldiers were members of the Army's 37th Engineer Battalion. And unlike thousands of other Americans who have complained that they suffer from ailments collectively described as Gulf War syndrome, the men of the 37th can pinpoint the time and place that they believe they were exposed to chemical weapons: 2:02 p.m. on March 4, 1991, when the battalion blew up 33 Iraqi bunkers in the southern Iraqi desert." It is stated that, "The Pentagon acknowledged this summer that one of the concrete bunkers probably contained sarin, a deadly nerve agent, and mustard gas, a blister agent that can burn flesh." It is reported that, "Defense Department officials say their initial review of the medical records of the battalion offers no evidence of an unusual pattern of health problems among these soldiers. While it concedes that chemical weapons were probably at the arsenal, the Pentagon has said that it still has no clinical evidence that the soldiers were exposed." The article reports that the story of the veterans of the 37th is different and that, "In interviews with 37 of the nearly 150 battalion members who were reported in the vicinity of the arsenal at the time of the explosion, 27 said they had suffered serious health problems since the war. Their ailments, they said, include mysterious infections and rashes, serious gastrointestinal problems, fierce headaches and constant fatigue." Christian Tullius, 28, a veteran of the 37th from Copperas Cove, Texas, is quoted, "We were paratroopers -- elite troops, in great shape -- and now we're all sick as dogs." The article reports that, "60,000 Persian Gulf War Veterans have asked for special government health screenings to determine if they suffer from ailments related to the war." Concluding statements are made, "The accounts given by members of the 37th, however, have raised concerns about the credibility of the Defense Department, which until recently insisted it had no evidence that Americans might have been exposed to Iraqi chemical or biological weapons. There is the possibility that tens of thousands of other soldiers downwind from the explosion were exposed as well."

        On August 15, 1996 the Post-Dispatch ran an article, "Wives of 3 Gulf War Veterans Sue U.S." which reported that, "Exposure to 'unreasonably dangerous' toxic chemicals during the war and immunizations the armed forces gave the men caused their babies to be born with Goldenhar's Syndrome which causes severe deformities often involving the respiratory and digestive systems and a distortion of facial features, the suit says." Nancy Nicolson, Ph.D., to be introduced below, says that not all affected veterans' babies have been born with Goldenhar's Syndrome. She says some have been born with symptoms reminiscent of CFS. She says that exposure to "depleted uranium" in addition to other battlefield insults including chemical and biological exposures may explain this rare birth defect syndrome (Goldenhar's Syndrome). She stresses that one must understand that Operation Desert Storm and the so-called tactical and strategic aspects of the Gulf War were contingent upon Soviet War Doctrine which is the use of multiple unconventional biological as well as chemical agents juxtaposed to conventional weaponry.

        Don McAlvany devoted his August issue of, "The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor", a monthly analysis of global economic, monetary, and geo-political trends which impact gold and precious metal markets, to a "Special Report Germ Warfare Against America: The Desert Storm Plague and Cover-up". In this report McAlvany cites a 9/6/95 Los Angeles Times article titled, "Iraq discloses Deadly Biological Arsenal--Many Germs Designed to Maim, Not Kill," which reported, "Breaking with years of denial about biological weapons, Iraq admitted to concocting one of the most extensive arsenals in history, in many cases intended to maim and not kill," and that, "The arsenal was designed to be as ruinous to civilians as it would to be to the troops, the Times sources said."

        Joyce Riley, RN, captain of the air force reserve (on inactive reserve) and a flight evacuation nurse during Desert Storm, has been working to get the truth to the American people regarding Gulf War Syndrome. As Riley has remarked, it's too bad CNN didn't want to do the job for you. Riley reports that the Gulf War veterans have had to start a registry in Florida just for the babies that are being born deformed to the veterans. Riley, performing active duty missions within the U.S. was vaccinated and inoculated in preparation for transport to the Persian Gulf. (The cease-fire occurred the week she was to receive her orders.) She later contracted Gulf War Illness symptoms apparently from the vaccinations and inoculations. She developed an infection of the central nervous system and later mycoplasmic pneumonia. She found that the government would neither acknowledged that her symptoms might relate to her tour of duty nor provide her with treatment. According to Riley, 50,000 to 100,000 Gulf War veterans (and in some cases family members) are sick and 15,000 Gulf War veterans have died due to illness associated with service in the Gulf War. McAlvany reports that according to data obtained from the Veterans Administration the active duty tumor rate in the U.S. military has increased 600% since 1990 and that this data is available from Joyce Riley. According to Dr. Garth and Dr. Nancy Nicolson, to be introduced below, there are now more babies being born deformed or with birth defects in Iraq than are being born normal. The Nicolsons also report that 20% to 25% of the population of the countries surrounding the theater of operations are sick. McAlvany reports that a 5/22/91 New York Times article titled, "Health Crisis Said to Grip Iraq in Wake of War's Destruction" reported, "Child Mortality soared in the first four months of `91, up 55,000 over the same period in 1990. Dr. Harvey Fineburg of the Harvard School of Public Health estimated, based on data he reviewed, that child mortality in Iraq increased by 170,000 in 1991." McAlvany also writes, "The Wall Street journal has quoted U.N. sources saying that 56,000 Iraqi children have died since the war ended in 1991. If true, then the Nicolsons' estimates are way too low." Riley believes that the Gulf War was simply an experiment of germ warfare. She says she was never very involved in politics prior to the war and that she never would have believed this but that it is all true. Riley asks if the war was an effort to decrease the world population. Riley also says a purpose of the war was to weaken our military. Many members of the military are no longer able to work due to being ill. McAlvany writes that according to Life magazine, November, 1995, "Ironically, much of Iraq's chemical arsenal was made by U.S. companies -- 80 of which face a class action law suit by 2,000 ailing vets." McAlvany quotes Vladimir Lenin, "American capitalists will do anything to make a profit. They will even sell us the rope with which we will hang them."

        Suspicions that the Gulf War was an effort to decrease the world population are not unfounded. Currently, covert, oppressive, and abusive techniques are being employed to decrease population growth and to depopulate. This is an international effort being led in large part by U.S. Government and private agencies and organizations. An article appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on 9/12/96. It was titled, "Scientist sees Downsized Human Race". Volland wrote, "Environmental scientist Edward O. Wilson, whose study of aunts won a Pulitzer Prize in 1991, would like to see more of them in the world and fewer humans. The mild-mannered Harvard University professor and entomologist said at Washington University Wednesday that the human population should drop eventually to `the hundreds of millions' for a true ecological balance. It's about 5.7 billion now." Volland wrote that in regard to Wilson, "A single global policy on population is unfeasible, he said. But efforts are under way in this and other populous nations to achieve zero population growth and even depopulation, he said."

        On 4/22/77 the St. Louis Post-Dispatch ran an article by Paul Wagman of the Post titled, "U.S. Goal: Sterilize Millions of World's Women". Wagman wrote, "The United States is seeking to provide the means by which one quarter of the sterile women in the world can be voluntarily sterilized, the director of the Federal Government's Office of Population said here yesterday. As many as 100,000 women around the world might be sterilized if these goals are met, Dr. R.T. Ravenholt, the director, said. One of the programs that the U.S. is using in trying to reach this goal, Dr. Ravenholt said, is a federally financed training program for foreign doctors at Washington University Medical School. The main purpose of the program is to train doctors in `advanced fertility management techniques', Dr. Ravenholt said. John Hopkins University in Baltimore also participated in the program called PIEGO (Program for International Education in Gynecology and Obstetrics). Dr. Ravenholt made his remarks during an interview at the Chase-Park Plaza Hotel. He was in St. Louis to attend the annual meeting of the Population Association of America." Wagman reported that, "Dr. Ravenholt expressed concern about criticism leveled at PIEGO during the last year by a small group of Washington University students, faculty and staff members. The group has attacked PIEGO on political grounds and has called for Washington University to end its involvement in the program. Among the critics are: Garland Allen, associate professor of biology; Miriam Golomb, a post-doctoral fellow in biochemistry, and Andrew Goodman, a second year medical student." Wagman wrote further that, "Dr. Ravenholt gave credence to one of the arguments made by the critics - that PIEGO is basically a training program in female fertilization. Washington University officials have denied this." Wagman then wrote, "PIEGO is one of several programs sponsored by the U.S. Office of Population to control growth abroad, Dr. Ravenholt said. The Office of Population is part of the U.S. Agency for International Development (AID), an arm of the Department of State. About 30 countries have bilateral agreements with the U.S. Government to provide population control programs, Dr. Ravenholt said. `This is our preferred route,' he commented. In some countries, however, `political sensitivity' makes it impossible for the U.S. to negotiate such agreements. In those cases, he said, efforts are made to set up population programs under the aegis of other organizations, such as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. Both groups receive heavy U.S. funding, he said." Wagman concludes the article with, "Dr. James C. Warren, co-director of the PIEGO program at Washington University," told the "Post-Dispatch that about 70 foreign doctors are being trained at the university this year. Altogether, more than 200 students have been enrolled here since 1973, he said." Wagman concludes the article saying that critics of the program say they have documents that show that PIEGO will have paid Washington University over two million dollars for its services by the end of 1977.

         In the November-December 1995 issue of Celebrate Life an article by Suzanne M. Rini appeared titled, "Open Season on Humanity: Abortion, Contraception, Sterilization, and the Coming Era of Coercion," Rini wrote that, "In April 1995 the Institute of Medicine, an important adjunct to the Rockefellor founded National Research Council, published a study, `The Best intentions: Unintended Pregnancy and the Well-Being of Children and Families,' funded by several long-time eugenics links--the U.S. Public Health Service, the Carnegie Corporation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation--and a new player, the Annie E. Casey foundation. `The Best Intentions' is a carefully wrought propaganda campaign to induce Americans to chose `long-term contraception,' including Norplant, Depo-Provera, new brass IUD's, abortifacient vaccines that cause `immunological sterilization,' and someday, bizarre male and female contraceptives. Rini also reported that, "Anti-fertility vaccines have long been liked to coercive reproductive social policy. In 1971, in The Case for Cumpulsory Birth control, Edgar R. Chasteen, then a national board member of Zero Population Growth and a board member of Planned Parenthood of Greater Kansas City, predicted:

`Assuming that we could soon have a vaccine to immunize against fertility, it would then be possible to inoculate all children. Unlike the smallpox vaccine which furnishes lifelong protection, however, the anti-fertility vaccine would be reversible. Following marriage, fertility could be temporarily restored by another shot. After the permitted number of births, permanent immunity to fertility could be re-established.'"' Rini continued, "A 1978 meeting at Rockefellor University, suggested vaccines as a `beyond the pill' strategy. This solution would eventually put teeth in Dr. Allan C. Barne's 1973 (when he was head of the Rockefeller Foundation) dictum: `Death Control without birth control is pure folly'. In the 1970's a consortium was formed to develop the vaccines and other new long-term contraceptives that would help cut the live-birth rate in half (the stated goal of the global population control machine). The consortium comprised:

        -The World Health Organization, the Population Council (funded by eugenicists such as the Andrew Mellon Foundation, the Dodge and Rockefeller Foundations, USAID and the National  Institutes of Health).

        -The National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi, India, funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation.

        -CONRAD (the Contraceptive Research and Development Program) at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk. Their focus is "anti-sperm" contraceptives designed to prevent fertilization.

        -The taxpayer-funded National Institute of Child Health and Development, especially its  Contraceptive Research and Development Branch in the Center for Population Research

 The vaccines they developed are abortifacient. Furthermore, the woman's auto-immune system must be suppressed for the destroying antibodies to move in and prevent fertilization or implantation. Some scientists have said that immunizing women against their own babies could unleash new auto-immune diseases. These `anti-fertility vaccines' are in Phase III trials in the Philippines and Mexico, where they have been combined with tetanus immunizations given to women and pre-pubertal girls without their understanding what is happening to them." Rini concludes the article, "The woman vaccinated against pregnancy will never know she was pregnant."

        An article in the 6/9/95, The Irish Family, as well as an article in the 5/15/95 Communiqu‚, a bi-weekly news letter put out by the American Life League discusses the use of these vaccines. Contact Sister Mary Pilar Verzosa, RGS Pro-Life Philippines, Caritas Building, 2002 Jesus Street Pandacan, Manila, Philippines phone or fax 011-632-50-63-32 for more information or to offer assistance. In the The Irish Family article, Peter Scully the Director of Human Life International in Ireland is quoted as saying that the women victims are, "being treated as nothing more than uninformed, unwitting, unconsenting guinea pigs." The article states that according to Human Life International, "the World Health Organization (WHO), the driving force behind the vaccination campaigns, has been actively involved for 20 years in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine (AFV) utilizing hCG with tetanus and other carriers. Allied with them have been the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA), the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank, the Population Council, the Rockefeller Foundation of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and a number of universities. The U.S. National Institute of Child Health and Human Development of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md., USA was the supplier of the hCG hormone in some of the AVF experiments." In the July-August 1996 issue of a magazine, Health Freedom News, an article on the same topic, Vaccination, Inc. by Paul Borraccia appeared. The article was reprinted from Awareness Magazine, 5011 Argosy ave., #3, Hunington Beach, CA 92649. Paul's number was given: (818) 296-2688. Borraccia writes, "In October 1994, Human Life International (HLI), a pro-life organization based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, received a communication from their Mexican affiliate, Comit‚ Pro Vido de Mexico. A neonatal tetanus vaccine drive was underway. Only women of child bearing age (15-45) were being vaccinated. The program called for three tetanus shots within three months -- a total of five in all. This seems extremely unusual, considering the normal procedure for a tetanus shot is one each ten years. This is what got the attention of the Comit‚. They obtained samples of the vaccine and had a chemical analysis performed. Three of the four vials contained hCG. HLI has affiliates in over sixty countries. Similar reports of unusual protocols regarding vaccine drives came from Nicaragua and the Philippines -- 3.4 million women were recently vaccinated in the Philippines." Borraccia also writes that, "Africa and Brazil are also included in the invasive control of population. A 1991 report from the statistical branch of the Brazilian government, revealed that one third of Brazil's women have been sterilized. Often these women live in poverty and lack medical and legal recourse in the event of serious adverse reaction or death. Even if they do have the means, the link to the vaccine is consistently denied by the so-called authorities. This is the usual case with all vaccinations even though the components of vaccines are known to be harmful and disease-causing. Considering the large number of deaths occurring in these extremely impoverished areas, mostly from malnutrition and starvation, a few thousand extra deaths here and there induced by vaccination go unnoticed and unchallenged." Borraccia reports that some of the universities involved are, "Uppsala, Sweden; Helinski, Finland; and Ohio State, U.S." He writes that some of the countries that have contributed financially are Sweden($90,000,000), United Kingdom($52,000,000), Norway($41,000,000), Denmark($27,000,000), Germany($12,000,000), and the United States($8,200,000). Borraccia writes that , "In 1993, the Clinton administration made a contribution of 2.5 million dollars." He also states that an article in the Los Angeles Times, September 8, 1994 is titled, "Real U.S. Policy in Third World: Sterilization" and that the subtitle reads, "Disregard the `Empowerment' Shoe Polish -- The goal is to keep the natives from breeding."

        According to an A&E Biography of the Rockefellers on Cable Television, in 1946 John D. Rockefellor Jr. bought and then donated land for the new United Nations. In regard to the Rockefellor's children the biography states that their oldest child, Abby, continued her mother's work with the museum of modern art and became a major funder of cancer research, the oldest son John D. III devoted his life to the issue of population control and started the Asia Society, Nelson became a four term governor of New York, ran for president, and served as vice president of the United States, Lawrence carried on his fathers conservation efforts, Winthrop became a two term governor of Arkansas, and David became an international statesman as well as the president of Chase Manhattan Bank. The biography also states that John D. Rockefellor seniors' father, William Avery, was a "small time con artist with a variety of schemes to make money off of his countrymen including a treatment guaranteed to cure cancer." See the book, World Without Cancer by G. Edward Griffin which reveals, "a shocking picture of how science has been subverted to protect entrenched commercial and political interests." This book is currently out of print but a new edition is due out in

December. The edition published in 1974 shows how the Rockefeller Foundation and the Carnegie Foundation have controlled much of the "science" that is done in universities by making large research grants to universities including John Hopkins University as well as by contributing to faculty members' salaries and in some cases entirely funding faculty members (pages 375-377). The biography on A&E also reports that in 1865 J.D. Rockefeller went into a partnership with an experienced oil refiner, the Englishman Samuel Andrews. A paper on Dr. Horowitz's web site by Anton Chaitkin regarding population control, the Rockefellers, Nazi's, and the United Nations states that in regard to the Rockefeller Foundation, "Evidence in the possession of a growing number of researchers in America, England, and Germany demonstrates that the Foundation and its corporate, medical, and political associates organized the racial mass murder of Nazi Germany. These globalists, who function as a conduit for British Empire geopolitics, were not stopped after World War II. This United Nations alliance of the old Nazi right, with the new left, poses an even graver danger to the world today than it did in 1941." Chaitkin also writes that, "the Rockefeller Foundation had long financed the eugenics movement in England, apparently repaying Britain for the fact that British capital and an English-partner had started old John D. Rockefeller out in his oil trust."

        The above information regarding population control and anti-fertility vaccines was provided to show that currently there is an international effort (being led in large part by U.S. government and private agencies) to depopulate. This operation is covert. Informed consent has been completely disregarded. The women are told they are getting tetanus vaccines, but the vaccines are laced with anti-fertility agents.

        According to Joyce Riley, the Gulf War vets got 8 or 9 immunizations at a time and were not even told what they were getting. Also according to Riley, it seems that the Gulf War was planned in advance. She says the Anthrax and Botulinum vaccines were prepared two years before the war indicating that we knew what they had. McAlvany writes that, "THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE ILLEGALLY FORCED U.S. TROOPS TO TAKE UNAPPROVED, EXPERIMENTAL AND INVESTIGATIONAL BOTULISM TOXOID VACCINE DURING DESERT SHIELD/DESERT STORM. That is a criminal violation of the Nuremberg Code." Riley says that troops from the 28 coalition countries are sick and dying except for the French troops who did not receive any vaccinations for the war and who took several doxycycline pills each day during the war. As will be discussed, doxycycline is an antibiotic which has been found to improve the health of many of the veterans who have Gulf War Syndrome. Riley's phone rings constantly with calls from sick veterans as well as (CFS) Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients. Riley is getting so many phone calls that she can't always talk to the CFS patients and must restrict herself to the vets. Riley tells the vets about the research being done on Gulf War Syndrome by Garth L. Nicolson, Ph.D., and his wife, Nancy L. Nicolson, Ph.D.

        Garth Nicolson has a Ph.D. in Cell Biology. He has been nominated for a Nobel Prize for his classical work on membrane structure and his model, the Fluid Mosaic Membrane. He has been working as the David Burton chair in cancer research and Professor and Chairman of the Department of Tumor Biology at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Nancy Nicolson has a Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics which involves the mastery of four scientific disciplines. Nancy is the president of the Rhodon Foundation for biomedical research in Kingwood, Texas. Garth has also been working as Professor of Internal Medicine and Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. Garth has published over 400 medical and scientific papers, edited 13 books and served on the Editorial Boards of 12 medical and scientific journals and he is currently serving as the editor of the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry and Clinical and Experimental Metastasis. Nancy has published over 25 medical and scientific papers. Both Nancy and Garth are in the process of being nominated for a Nobel Prize for the development of nucleoprotein gene tracking which is a technique that has been applied to the study of cancer metastasis as well as HIV-1 infection and the invasive infections associated with the veterans of Desert Storm. As will be discussed the Nicolson's recently moved their research to Irvine, California due to efforts by the U.S. government to destroy their research.

        Current research being done by Dr. Garth and Dr. Nancy Nicolson indicates that much of the Gulf War Syndrome and in some cases what has been known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is due to infection with a mycoplasma (a microorganism which has characteristics of both a bacteria and a virus and which lacks a cell wall) which has been genetically manipulated or as Dr. Garth Nicolson states, "weaponized", by inserting the HIV-1 envelope gene into the mycoplasma's genome. Nancy Nicolson says insertion of this gene should render a relatively benign microorganism pathogenic. The HIV-1 envelope gene encodes glycoprotein 120 which recognizes receptors on the cell surface of CD4 lymphocytes. In extreme cases the mycoplasma causes death. The mycoplasma is a co-carcinogen. It is not uncommon for the mycoplasma to infect the central nervous system. In severe cases the mycoplasma infection causes brain inflammation, strokes, and spinal meningitis. It has also apparently been implicated in the explosion of patients' hearts. The Nicolson doctors have found that the symptoms of CFS and GWS are very similar if not identical. The CDC's (Centers for Disease Control, Atlanta) revised case definition of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) was published in the December 15, 1994 Annals of Internal Medicine. According to this definition, in order for a diagnosis of CFS to be made the patient must have had at least four of the following symptoms for at least six months or more: "impairment in short-term memory or concentration severe enough to cause substantial reduction in previous levels of occupational, educational, social, or personal activities, sore throat, tender lymph nodes, muscle pain, multijoint pain without swelling or redness; headaches of a new type or severity, unrefreshing sleep; and a post exertional malaise lasting more than twenty-four hours." Also required was, "clinically evaluated, unexplained persistent or relapsing fatigue that is of a new or definite onset (has not been lifelong); is not the result of ongoing exertion; is not substantially alleviated by rest; and results in substantial reduction in previous levels of occupational, educational, or social, or personal activities." Although not all of the vets with GWS have the mycoplasma infection it is the most common infection they have found during a pilot study. The Nicolson's are working to determine the cause of illness in the other veterans and they have found another organism, a Brucella organism. Nancy says that approximately 380 plus veterans have died from unusual cancers to the central nervous system as of July 1994 according to classified Veterans Administration central computer collected data which was given to the Nicolson's by several anonymous individuals in Washington and elsewhere. Nancy says these cancers most likely arose in previously healthy vets due to exposure to potent chemical carcinogens and/or nerve agents and/or biological agents.

        There was a systematic manipulation of the news regarding the Gulf War prior to and during the Gulf War which continues after the War. In fact, manipulation of the news, both TV news and major newspapers, is common in this country although many Americans are unaware of this. Although the TV news and mainstream media have refrained from telling the American people the truth about the Gulf War Syndrome, the October 1990 testimony of Nayirah, a 15-year-old Kuwaiti girl, who testified to a public hearing of Congress's Human Rights Caucus that she had witnessed Saddam's soldiers taking babies out of incubators and leaving them to die on a hospital floor was used on the October 10, 1990 NBC Nightly News and eventually reached an audience of 35 million. President Bush frequently mentioned her story as a reason for intervention. The incubator story was a major factor in building public support for the war. Several members of Congress said the testimony influenced their votes to approve military action against Iraq. As many magazines have reported, for example, The Washington Monthly (Sept./Oct. `92) and TV Guide (Feb. 22, `92), the incubator story was concocted by the PR firm Hill and Knowlton which started talking with the Kuwaiti government in August of 1990, shortly after the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, about ways to create support in the U.S. for strong military action against Iraq. These meetings led to the creation of a front group, Citizens for a Free Kuwait, which was financed almost entirely by the Kuwaiti government and which paid Hill and Knowlton $11.5 million for the PR campaign. Soon after the war ended Nayirah's story came into question. The Washington Monthly reports (Sept. 12) that in March `91 ABC news interviewed the Kuwaiti hospital officials who denied that Iraqi troops had dumped any babies out of incubators, but that the biggest "bombshell" was a story by Harper's magazine publisher John R. MacArthur that appeared in January 1992 on the New York Times op-ed page. The article revealed that Nayirah was the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. Further, Mac Arthur revealed that representative Tom Lantos and John Edward Porter who sponsored the congressional hearings had started a group called the Congressional Human Rights Foundation that had received $50,000 from Citizens for a Free Kuwait and free office space in Hill and Knowlton's Washington headquarters.

        In the TV guide article, Morgan Strong writes that Nayirah's story was not the only "occurrence of packaged war reporting broadcast in the heat of war hysteria". He writes that during his long "stint" in Saudi Arabia as a consultant for both PBS's Frontline and England's Thames Television he found, "a far more systematic manipulation of the news by a PR firm than is generally known." He states that following the August 1990 invasion Hill and Knowlton selected and coached refugees with stories about conditions in their country that were most in line with the agenda of Hill and Knowlton's client and made these refugees available to news organizations, limiting journalists' ability to asses independently claims of brutality. Strong states further, "Indeed, the PR firms operatives were given free rein to travel unescorted throughout Saudi Arabia, while journalists were severely restricted."

        In June, 1996 Larry Conners and Julius Hunter, anchors for the St. Louis channel 4 (CBS) 6 and 10pm news did a story on the local TV program, Closer Look, about Gulf War Syndrome. They began with, "We begin tonight with a mystery. What is causing the illness of more than 50,000 Gulf War Vets?" They then reported that in regard to the Department of Defense, "The DOD says there is no mystery, no so-called Gulf War Syndrome. Rather, the Pentagon says it is a mixture of illnesses, some of which are just psychological." They then interviewed Gulf War veteran Roger Parks and veteran Jim Brown and his wife. They said that Parks, "like 10's of thousands of others who returned from the Gulf, Parks suffers from chronic fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and problems with balance." Parks also has precancerous growths. Jim Brown of Hannibal, MO and his wife were then interviewed. They were shown with their daughter and their dog. Jim Brown is sick and unemployed. He says, "I figured my country would stand behind me, that the people running my country would stand behind me and it didn't turn out that way." His wife, Michelle Brown, has some of the same symptoms Jim has. Michelle says they don't plan to have anymore children because they are too afraid because of the other couples (vets) they know whose children have had birth defects. The cover of the November, 1995 issue of Life Magazine is shown and Larry Conners explains that the Brown's

concerns "have become a reality" in Waynesboro, Mississippi where Gulf veterans have had 15 children since the war and 13 of those children have serious birth defects. Early in the 15 minute story on Gulf War Syndrome they reported that, "as you are going to see tonight new research shows that the army may be to blame. Could it be that in an effort to keep our troops safe the army may have actually made them sick?"

        Later in their report they say that "a study just released this month" shows that GWS may be an adverse reaction to PB (Pyridostigmine Bromide) pills the troops were ordered to take in combination with an insecticide and a pesticide the troops used. (Nancy Nicolson says that as long ago as the early 1970's studies were done by John M. Deutch which indicate that PB pills alone can produce similar symptoms to GWS.) Larry Connors says that the PB pills were a nerve gas antidote. He then says that "a new study released from Duke University just this month concludes that Gulf War Syndrome might be an adverse reaction to a combination of chemicals." Connors says that chickens were tested because they have similar neurological pathways as humans. He says they were given the PB pill and exposed to an insecticide and a pesticide also used by Gulf troops which resulted in neurological problems in the chickens. They then show Dr. Mohamed Abou-Donia at Duke University who says that it was the combination of the PB pills and the insecticides and pesticides which caused a problem. Dr. Abou-Donia does not explain how Jim Brown's wife could have caught an illness caused by the interaction of an anti-nerve gas pill and an insecticide and a pesticide. The chemical combination theory does not explain why many vets family members and even some pets have become ill. Hunter and Connors point out that the "chemical combination theory is only one theory and that another theory is that the troops were exposed to chemical and/or biological warfare. They then report that the Pentagon has maintained that there was no chemical exposure in the Gulf but that Major General Ronald Blanck sent a memorandum to the surgeon general which states, "clearly, chemical warfare agents were detected and confirmed at very low levels" and that, "...the presumption of their presence must be made." Hunter and Conners do not report on the highly significant research being done by the Nicolson doctors. However, they end the story with Michelle Brown reading a written statement, "our loved ones went over to Saudi as soldiers to protect and serve this great country and what it was founded on. We remained at home supporting them in their cause. The wounds they carried home have been passed to family and friends. And now we are all soldiers fighting not only to preserve our great country but to live. And the battle remains. Only the enemy has changed.

        Nancy Nicolson stresses that Soviet War Doctrine was used in the war consisting of using multiple agents to promote similar symptoms in order to confuse the causal agents involved in the war and to inflict post-war delayed casualties to disguise the use of biological warfare agents and the ensuant contagion. Nancy and Garth Nicolson have been on TV in Australia and they have been on BBC in Britain where the story is not being covered up to the same degree as in the United States although it is being censored to some degree in these countries. The Nicolson doctors have also been on TV in Italy because as they explain, the Vatican is very concerned about this, particularly the Pope who wrote that certain acts are inherently evil and that this is one of them and who spoke out on our "death oriented" society. However, there has been a gag order and press black out of the Nicolson's research in this country. Although the Nicolsons' research on GWS has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (February 22, 1995, vol. 273, no. 800), the International Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology (vol. 4, No. 3, 1995), Extraordinary Science in Press (1995), the Journal of Occupational Medicine, Immunology, and Toxicology (vol. 5, No. 1, 1996), and Townshend's Letter for Doctors and Patients (May, 1996) as well as the CFIDS Chronicle ((3): 66-69 (1996) the major/controlled media has not shared their research with the American people and the Nicolson's have been subjected to undue harassment by the U.S. intelligence sector as well as CIA "plants" in the scientific community. This writer has learned that the Nicolson's have also recently published articles the International Journal of Occupational Medicine, Immunology, and Toxicology 5: 83-86 (1996), Medicine Conflict & Survival 12: 260-262 (1996), and Medicine Conflict & Survival in press (1997).

        In their article in Townshend's Letter the Nicolson's report that, "even Major General Ronald Blanck, commanding officer of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., agrees that GWS `symptoms list fit a CFIDS-like illness'." In the same article the Nicolson's report that approximately 50-100,000 Desert Shield/Storm veterans, and in some cases immediate family members, who are experiencing chronic illness, share similar although unique sets of signs and symptoms. They report that in their study of 650 Gulf War vets with Gulf War Syndrome the signs and symptoms of GWS almost exactly fit the profile for Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction Syndrome as reported in the CFIDS literature. See figure 2. CFIDS is the term independent researchers have chosen to use for the illness the government (the CDC) has termed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Dr. Garth Nicolson states that the only exception was light sensitivity and that as a symptom photosensitivity was not reported as a common complaint at as high a frequency for the vets as the CFIDS patients but that this may be due to the way data was gathered on the GWS patients. He says that when they went back and re-analyzed their data they found that the incidence of this symptom was actually higher than they had initially reported. They conclude that GWS is probably not a new syndrome and that they believe it is a CFIDS-like disorder. Nancy Nicolson stresses that the vets were exposed to biological warfare agents...microorganisms that were weaponized.

        An article titled, "Mycoplasmsal Infections--Diagnosis and Treatment in GWS/CFIDS patients--" by the Nicolson doctors appeared in summer 1996 issue of The CFIDS Chronicle, a quarterly publication of the Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome Association of America. The Nicolson's write that, "Although the concept of a distinct syndrome linked to the Persian Gulf has been advanced, it has not been proven, and we prefer to use the term GWI instead of Gulf War Syndrome." GWI stands for Gulf War Illness. Further, they write, "Based on the symptom pattern of CFIDS, we feel that the most appropriate syndrome that characterizes GWI is CFIDS, and that this type of GWI/CFIDS is apparently being transmitted to close family members." The Nicolson's explain that, "Several hypotheses have been advanced to explain the pathophysiological origins of CFIDS, but the model of Cheney is particularly useful in discussing the complex, multi-organ signs and symptoms of CFIDS. In this model, the syndrome is initiated by immune activation and the stimulated release of interferons and cytokines that cause neurotoxicity and other systemic effects. We have proposed that GWI/CFIDS may be initiated by host responses to chronic infectious agents resulting in interferon and cytokine production." In regard to the source of the Gulf veterans GWI/CFIDS they write, "There were a number of potential sources of chronic infectious agents in the Persian Gulf theater of operations, including the vaccines that were used to immunize the soldiers, endogenous infectious agents in the Persian Gulf, blow-back of chemical-biological warfare (CBW) agents from the bombing of CBW factories and supply depots (see page 5 --editor), and offensive Iraqi CBW weapons mounted on SCUD missiles and other projectiles. Of these, we consider the most likely sources of potential chronic infectious agents to be the vaccines and Iraqi offensive CBW weapons---some of which were originally purchased from U.S. companies and transferred to Iraq with U.S. Commerce Department approvals. We have concluded that, in addition to the signs and symptoms, the causes of GWI/CFIDS are also complex, and as a disease it is probably caused by several types of agents or conditions." (underlining and bold print added)

        The Nicolsons note that mycoplasma contamination is not uncommon in commercial vaccines. As has been stated, although the mycoplasma infection is the most common infection the veterans have it is not the only infection veterans have and the Nicolson's are working to identify other infections present in the veterans. The Nicolson's were told that Soviet War Doctrine was used in the Gulf War and that this involves using many different agents to confuse the diagnostic and treatment process. According to Joyce Riley, when the Scud B missiles were sent over and were intercepted by our Patriot Missiles it rained down germ warfare on our troops in the form of a greasy filmy substance.

        According to statements Dr. Garth Nicolson made during a presentation, Nicolson says the Gulf War was the first time in history that shot records were not kept on the troops and one whole unit was threatened that they would be shot if they didn't take their shots. McAlvany reports that based on numerous conversations with Gulf War vets Joyce Riley has concluded that approximately 70% of their medical records are missing. Dr. Nancy Nicolson says contacts in Central Command under Schwarzkopf and multiple high level operatives from domestic and foreign intelligence have told she and Garth the Gulf War veterans' medical records were in the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City before it was bombed.

        On February 9, 1994 Senator Donald W. Riegle, Jr., took to the Senate floor and reported that, "Records available from the supplier for the period from 1985 until the present show that during this period, pathogenic, meaning "poisonous" and other materials, were exported to Iraq pursuant to application and licensing by the U.S. Department of Commerce. Records prior to 1985 were not available, according to the supplier. These exported materials were not attenuated or weakened and were capable of reproduction. Thus, from at least 1985 through 1989, the United States government approved the sale of quantities of potentially lethal biological agents that could have been cultured or grown in large quantities in an Iraqi biological warfare program." Senator Riegle continued, "I find it especially troubling that, according to the supplier's records, these materials were requested by and sent to Iraqi government agencies including the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission, the Iraq Ministry of Higher Education, the State Company for Drug Industries, and the Ministry of Trade. While there may be legitimate needs for pathogens in medical research, closer scrutiny should be exercised in approving exports of materials to countries known or suspected of having active and aggressive biological warfare programs. Iraq has long been suspected of conducting biological warfare research, in addition to it's chemical and nuclear warfare research programs." Senator Riegle then provided a lengthy list of the biologicals, the dates of shipment, and the Iraqi agencies they were shipped to. Examples of a few of the biologicals that were shipped to Iraq include Bacillus Anthracis, Clostridium Botulinum, and Brucella Melitensis. In an article on Gulf War Syndrome in the May 1994 issue of Gentlemen's Quarterly, the above information is reported. Specifically, it is reported that, "records show that from 1985 to 1989, the U.S. government issued seventeen export licenses for potentially lethal biological agents that were sent to Iraq. The American Type Culture Collection, a nonprofit organization in Rockville, Maryland, and the federal government's own Center's for Disease Control, in Atlanta, were responsible for most of the shipments, according to Riegle's investigation." (bold print and underlining added) Because the Iraqi's possessed many different biological agents which could have been used as biological warfare the Gulf War Illness likely consists of several different illnesses. Senator Riegle only had access to the declassified records.

        However, Dr. Garth and Dr. Nancy Nicolson testified before the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, Subcommittee on Human Resources and Government Intergovernmental Relations, United States Houses of Representatives on April 2, 1996 that the, "most common infection found in our studies thus far was an unusual microoganism, Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain), in the blood of GWS patients." They also stated that, "When we studied 650 veterans of Operation Desert Storm and their immediate family members who suffer from GWS, we found that they have multiple chronic signs and symptoms that are almost identical to myalgic encepthalomyelitis (ME) or Chronic Fatigue-Immune Dysfunction (CFIDS)." ME is the term used for CFS by Australian, Canadian, and British researchers. Although the CDC named the illness CFS in the United States, independent researchers have preferred to refer to it as CFIDS. The Nicolsons conclude their testimony, "We believe Congress holds the key to the solution of GWS. This and associated disorders (CFIDS) must be studied using the peer-reviewed grant award system, such as that used by the NIH. GWS cannot be left to the Department of Defense or the Department of Veterans Affairs, because they have not shown themselves to be especially responsive to the health problems of our Gulf War veterans." (underling and bold print added).

        Although there was no television coverage regarding the testimony of the Nicolson doctors, on May 24 at 6 pm channel 9 (PBS) in St. Louis aired a short story on GWS on News Hour With Jim Lehrer which showed Senator Rockefellor pointing to the Pyridostigmine Bromide (BP) pills the troops took as the cause of the Gulf War vets' illness. Reference was made to the research mentioned previously that is being done with chickens. Dr. Abou-Donia was shown at Duke University and he said that the chickens have the same reaction to the PB pills as the Gulf War vets, becoming lethargic and hardly moving. It is not hard to believe that chickens may react this way to the PB pills. But, this does not show that GWS is caused by unaltered PB pills taken by the vets during the Gulf War. In many cases GWS has been contagious with family members and pets becoming sick. (Although this writer can not locate the specific issue, she recalls reading in an issue of the CFIDS Chronicle that Dr. Paul Cheney has noted that patients' pets have gotten sick and in some cases have died.) Senator Rockefeller was again on television the end of September or the beginning of October of 1996. He appeared on the second story done on Gulf War Syndrome by 60 Minutes. It was reported that studies had been done at the University of Maryland (which has been involved in biological warfare research including experimenting with mycoplasma) many years ago which showed that PB pills can cause many of the symptoms of GWS, but the reporter noted that normally those reactions to the pills are not long lasting. With no basis for making this statement he then said that maybe in some cases the effects actually are long-term (causing GWS). Senator Rockefeller again blamed the PB pills and blasted the DOD. He acted like he was concerned about the veterans. Unfortunately, it seems that Rockefeller's statements on 60 Minutes were simply another part of the cover-up disguised as concern for the victims of very evil deeds. Based on the Nicolson's research, if the PB pill did cause some of the GWS it seems that they did so because some (probably not all of them) were altered, meaning intentionally contaminated with infectious organisms. It seems that some of the vaccines the soldiers were given were contaminated in a similar manner.

        In March of this year a 700 page book, Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic, by Hillary Johnson was released. In this book Johnson chronicles the research on CFS during the last ten years. Johnson reports on the politics, the scientific findings, and the extraordinary failure of our institutions, mainly, the NIH and the CDC to protect the public health from this extremely debilitating infectious disease which has been shown to attack the immune system and the brain. CFS is now many times more widespread than polio was in the early 1950's and is estimated to afflict two million Americans. Johnson reports that due to the neglect of our federal agencies, most of the significant research on CFS has been left up to independent researchers who are often "politically assassinated" for their work. The same has been true regarding Gulf War Syndrome.

        The Nicolson doctors have detected infectious DNA sequences peculiar to the microorganism,

Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain) deep inside the white blood cells in the nucleus of the cells of patients with GWS/CFIDS. However, not every Desert Storm veteran has the same type of mycoplasma gene sequences inside their cells. The majority of the mycoplasma gene sequences observed were homologous to and variants of Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain). Some of the GWS/CFIDS patients test positive for other mycoplasmas such as Mycoplasma penetrans or Mycoplasma genitalium. The mycoplasma being found in the GWI/CFIDS patients proliferates inside cells rather than intercellularly and in this respect differs from the usual mycoplasma. Also, it does not cross-react with tests for any of the 20 plus known mycoplasmas and routine lab tests do not detect this infection. The Nicolson doctors used polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Gene Tracking to detect DNA sequences peculiar to the mycoplasma. This mycoplasma also differs from the usual mycoplasma in that the HIV-1 envelope gene has been inserted into it. The HIV-1 envelope gene encodes for a protein, GP 120, a component on the exterior of the AIDS virus which renders the mycoplasma invasive enabling it to bind to the CD4 receptor on lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) and other cells so that the mycoplasma can go all over the body were you normally wouldn't see it into various tissues causing the symptoms of GWS/CFS, for example, joint pain.

        The Nicolson doctors have found that this infection can be successfully treated with the antibiotic Doxycycline (as well as Minocycline, Ciprofloxan, and Azithromycin). Penicillin exacerbates the disease. Patients require multiple six week cycles on the antibiotic therapy and the Nicolson's believe this is because the infection is inside the cell. Two week intervals off of the antibiotic between cycles are recommended to prevent resistance to the drug as well as to give the body a break from the use of antibiotics. Patients can expect their symptoms to be more noticeable between cycles of therapy. However, this increase in symptom severity diminishes after each cycle. The therapy is not a cure. It helps put the mycoplasma infection into remission. Patients sometimes still feel some of the symptoms although to a lesser degree. Relapses can occur, especially after the body is stressed. Dr. Garth Nicolson reports that they have retested patients' blood after they have recovered on antibiotic therapy and been unable to detect the mycoplasma. However, Dr. Garth Nicolson believes that you likely never completely get rid of this infection and that you can think of it like TB. He suspects that there is still some of the organism left in the tissues. However, with antibiotic therapy most patients recover to the point where their own immune system is keeping the infection "in check " and can live a fairly normal life. Some people who have the mycoplasma infection also have severe multiple chemical sensitivities and have difficulty taking the antibiotics. However, the Nicolson's are finding ways to work around that problem. Dr. Garth Nicolson categorizes this mycoplasma infection as being moderately contagious meaning that in most cases it requires prolonged close contact such as living with someone to catch this illness. The illness has a long incubation period which can range from months to years and it can be passed to unborn children. Also, the mycoplasma eventually enters every cell in the body. It can potentially alter cellular DNA which can lead to birth defects. Dr. Garth Nicolson says that once someone recovers from this illness he doesn't think they would be contagious.

        In an article published in the International Journal of Occupational Medicine, Immunology, and Toxicology, vol. 5, No. 1, 1996 the Nicolson's report that in a study of 30 Gulf War vets and family members with Gulf War Illness 14 were mycoplasma-positive. They conclude that the, "remaining patients could have other chronic infections". Further, they report, "at least some of the CFIDS patients who did not serve in the Persian Gulf during ODS may have treatable mycoplasmic infections. We have begun to examine this possibility, and our initial findings are that a subset of CFIDS patients with no relationship to ODS have mycoplasmal infections and respond , similarly to the mycoplasma-positive GWI-CFIDS patients, to antibiotics such as Doxycyline (unpublished findings)." They end, "We currently are developing additional diagnostic tests (polymerase chain reaction), to detect the presence of different species of invasive mycoplasmas that could be used to aid physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of veterans with GWI-CFIDS and civilians with CFIDS. We hope to extend this to a blinded crossover controlled treatment trail involving two antibiotics and placebo to determine the effectiveness of antibiotics in the treatment of GWI-CFIDS."

        What is most shocking regarding the mycoplasma that has the HIV-1 envelope gene inserted into it is that it seems it was created by a Houston company. In 1987 while Dr. Nancy Nicolson was an instructor in the Department of Immunolgy and Microbiology at the Baylor College of Medicine she became extremely ill. Doctors could not explain her illness. After seeing an article in the New York Times called "Mycoplasma Incognitus" which listed all of her symptoms, Nancy called the author, Dr. Shyh Lo, at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington. He tested her and said she had it. (He later denied this.) He never told her he had worked offsite in her own department at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Nancy now believes this is where she was deliberately infected with the mycoplasma because she patently refused to use her research abilities to work on biological weapons and spoke out against germ warfare. Nancy had a severe case of this illness. She was partially paralyzed, her thyroid was affected, and she had meningitis. She recalls that she had a near-death experience "which people can mock" in which she was told that she wasn't going to die but that she had to promise that when she got better if she ever heard of someone else in the future who was sick she had to speak out even if it meant putting herself open to danger and ridicule. She says that she tries to keep that word. Nancy found that Doxycycline, an antibiotic, helped her to regain her health. At the time of her illness Nancy's department had been doing research on mycoplasmas. She now believes that she was deliberately infected with one of these because she has the ability to uncover what others are trying to hide. As was discussed, Nancy has a cross-disciplinary Ph.D. in molecular biophysics which involves mastery of four disciplines and she and Garth have employed the method of nucleoprotein gene tracking which they originally developed to study cancer cells (and for which they are in the process of being nominated for a Nobel Prize) in their research on Gulf War Syndrome. Nancy says that because of her specialized training she had to sign papers after completing her training agreeing not to take her talents to a hostile government.

        In 1991, about six months after returning from military service in the Gulf War, Garth Nicolson's daughter from a previous marriage began suffering similar symptoms to those Nancy had suffered including chronic fatigue, aching joints, diarrhea, vomiting, and fevers. It sounded like a mycoplasma infection to Garth and at his suggestion she began trying Doxycycline which helped her to regain her health. She began passing the word to her military friends who then tried Doxycyline. The Nicolson's later contacted 73 of the veterans and 55 reported an improvement in health. Nancy Nicolson explains that a lot of the people who were sick were high-level government operatives and that when they started helping them and their families these specialists started talking. Nancy says that as their "intelligence sources" began filling them in she became a less than cooperative member of the Baylor faculty and that she was fired in 1991 because she wouldn't go along with germ warfare.

        By this time Garth Nicolson had learned of a "mystery illness" spreading among the employees of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Huntsville, Texas. Using gene tracking the Nicolson's found these employees to be positive for the mycoplasma infection. With the help of their intelligence sources the Nicolson's concluded that the biological weapon was created by Tanox Biosystems on Stella Link in Houston, a company with close ties to Baylor and that it was tested on inmates at the Walls Unit in Huntsville, Texas beginning in 1983. Garth says such testing was done in a series of prisons including prisons in Palestine, Texas and Victoria, Texas as well as in Kansas and South Carolina. Garth says the prisoners were supposedly being given flu vaccines. He says the "vaccine testing" was part of U.S. Army sponsored programs run by biotechnology firms. The inmates in Huntsville then started spreading it to the guards who then gave it to family members and others in the general population resulting in various diagnoses being given including CFS, Lou Gehrig's disease, MS, Guillian Barre Syndrome, etc. Also with the help of their intelligence sources the Nicolsons concluded that the biological weapon was sold to Saddam Hussein. Garth says that many of the inmates in Huntsville died. He says their records were destroyed and their bodies were burned. Garth says that they found much more variability in the genes in the mycoplasma when they tested those associated with the prison in Huntsville than when they tested the Gulf War vets. He says it appears that they were testing different types of mycoplasma in the prison to find out what would be the most effective for their purposes. Garth says that many people where furious with him for what he found in Huntsville including Dr. Charles LeMaistre, a friend of George Bush's and the past president of M.D. Anderson, Dr. Edward Young, Chief of the VA in Houston, and Dr. Robert M. Couch, Head of the Baylor Influenza Program, because it pointed to illegal testing. A massive cover-up was underway, in part because George Bush and Jim Baker were Tanox investors. Nancy Nicolson says that she is certain their research efforts are being stifled due to business links that current or former high level government officials including former President George Bush, former Secretary of State, James A. Baker III, and current CIA Director John Deutch have with U.S. firms that have developed CBW (chemical and biological warfare) agents. Garth Nicolson states that administrators at his own institution who are close personal friends of James A. Baker III have attempted to prevent them administratively from working on GWS and to discredit him as a scientist. He says they have attacked academic colleagues who have come to their defense in the name of academic freedom. Garth also says that he believes that Baker and Bush are friends with Charles LeMaistre, the former president of M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and Nancy Nicolson hypothesizes that M.D. Anderson was a "Russian Doll Cocktail" black budget supported program. "Russian Doll Cocktails" is the name for the Russian approach to biological warfare agents in which dolls are made with a smaller one inside a larger one and a smaller one inside the smaller one, and still a smaller one inside the smaller one, etc. (Cocktails can be made by combing a variety of biotoxins, nerve gas agents, vesicants, and some biological agents - such as bacteria and fungi. McAlvany reports that, "Dr. Garth Nicolson told this writer on 8/9/96 that the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston (where the Nicolson's have worked for many years) has been directly involved in biological weapons research and testing since the late 1970's and that he recently discovered that M.D. Anderson had been doing research on Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus) as a chemical/biological warfare agent. This would seem to be another strong reason why the Nicolson's were forced out of M.D. Anderson." McAlvany quotes Garth, "I have encountered numerous attempts to prevent us from continuing our work on Gulf War Illness (GWI). I have suffered attempts to block my papers and journal articles from publication, my grant applications have been tampered with, and my mail, phones, and fax have been repeatedly intercepted." In the same report McAlvany writes that the Nicolson's are not the only doctors to be pressured regarding Gulf War Illness and that according to the Nicolson's and Joyce Riley, "doctors around the country who have treated GWI, where it has been known are being put under tremendous pressure from on high to stop treating it all together."

        Garth Nicolson says that the U.S. Government, especially the Pentagon, says that the Iraqi's had no competence in the area of biological warfare but that this is not true. He says that one of the world's mycoplasma experts, Professor Al-Abuidi, ran a mycoplasma unit at the University of Bagdad for the past 22 years. Garth says that this was a very large unit. He also says that Al-Abuidi was trained at Fort -Detrick and the Plum Island facility at USDA. Garth says that Al-Abuidi was taken out by the Israeli Mossad. He says he doesn't know if this is true, its just what he heard. But he says he died under very mysterious circumstances. Garth says worldwide there are other mycoplasma experts who have either died or disappeared under very unusual circumstances. Garth says that a very prominent Israeli mycoplasma expert was coming to Texas every three months for several years and that he has now disappeared and is listed as missing. Garth says this is all very mysterious and they don't know exactly what it means but that they believe it may have to do with biological warfare and biological warfare programs. (Both the United States and Iraq signed the Biological Warfare Convention of 1972 which bans the development, production, and stockpiling of biological weapons.)

        The Nicolsons say that as they began studying GWS the espionage community began studying them. Armed Defense Intelligence Agents have entered the Anderson Cancer Center and threatened the Nicolsons to not continue their research or to talk publicly about it. Nancy recalls that the phone company said they had never seen so many taps on a phone. Garth says, "we broke a record". Nancy says she has endured attempts on her life. Nancy says it has been pretty dangerous. Nancy Nicolson believes a "small group of sophisticated thugs...who have a lot of power and who are dealing above the White House" enlisted scientists to develop the biological weapons. She knows who is involved scientifically.

        Nancy says that James Watson is a key player. Watson shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine with two British scientists, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilson for his role in determining the three-dimensional double-helix molecular structure of DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid. This chemical which is found in living cells is involved in the transmission of hereditary properties. Then, while working and teaching at the California Institute of Technology and Harvard University Watson helped break the genetic code. In 1968 he became director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory of Quantitative Biology in New York where he is currently working on the Human Genome Project. Sally Medley started a support group in January of 1994 for 350 families in Huntsville, Texas who were afflicted with a "mystery illness" which turned out to be the mycoplasma infection. Sally, her husband (a prison guard at the prison in Huntsville), and her daughter all tested positive for the mycoplasma. Sally reported to this writer in October of 1996 that about six months ago she called James Watson at Cold Springs Harbor and that he admitted to her that he was working on a flu vaccine with some other doctors at the Texas Department of Corrections (now the Texas Department of Criminal Justice) from 1983 to 1986. She says Watson said the prisoners were all volunteers.

        Nancy Nicolson says that those who have funded the biological warfare research are those who are the really rich and that for the most part they deal behind the scenes. Nancy says that the philosophy that the biological warfare creation and use derives from comes out of Europe, specifically, the Nazi philosophy. Nancy says that a close personal friend of hers, Eli Rosenbaum, is Director of Special Investigation of the Justice Department in D.C. She says he looks for Nazi agendas and eugenics and that according to Eli, there is a secret eugenics program at Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. Nancy also says Eli wrote a book called Betrayal which shows how the Jewish people (99% of those in the Jewish Community) have been betrayed by 1% of the Jewish people whose true agenda is unknown to them. Nancy says the book was banned.

        Repeated attempts have been made to destroy the Nicolson's research. The Nicolson's believe this is being done by the administration at M.D. Anderson as well as the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency), a faction of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), and a faction of the DOD (Department of Defense). Not only have their faxes been intercepted and stolen, but their congressional mail has been tampered with, their computers have been broken into and information transferred to alias files, and on three occasions their freezers have been unplugged in an attempt to destroy their blood samples (the DNA sequences which they use to do their blood tests). For this reason the Nicolsons have recently moved their research to California. Nancy Nicolson says the majority of those in the intelligence community are "dead set against" the harassment of the Nicolsons and efforts to destroy their research. For this reason, she says, many in the intelligence community are "unofficially helping behind the scenes" by leaking information to them, etc. Nancy says what is especially disturbing is that this type of behavior has been associated with places like Moscow, not the United States which most people have always thought of as a free country. When this writer said she thought we have been "in with" the Soviets for years Nancy Nicolson paused and then said, "You're right".

        While high level government officials including members of the Bush administration such as George Bush and James Baker as well as the current CIA Director, John Deutch, were involved in perpetrating the crimes of "Iraqgate" including exposing Americans to germ-warfare made by U.S. scientists, the current administration continues the cover-up. According to Joyce Riley, to date President Clinton has spent more than $88 million "proving" there is no Gulf War Illness.

        Government agencies have been resistant to finding an organic, and especially an infectious cause for CFS. The same has been true regarding the government's response to Gulf War Syndrome in which its victims have been told they are suffering from stress or psychiatric conditions. Family members as well as pets have gotten sick with symptoms consistent with these diseases. These incidences of cross-species transmission are a highly significant link between CFS and GWS. Many GWS and CFS patients including those testing positive for the mycoplasma infection have multiple chemical sensitivities or "environmental allergies" and react to chemicals that effect the central nervous system such as those found in paint with nausea, heart palpitations, headaches, etc. Another link between CFS and GWS is the high rate of birth defects and miscarriages associated with these illnesses. On page 242 of Osler's Web it is reported that lead CFS clinicians Paul Cheney, Dan Peterson, and Carol Jessop have found that miscarriages are common and that babies that do make it to term are of clinically significant low birth weight. In the Spring 1991 issue of the CFIDS chronicle Dr. Byron Hyde reports that, "a few of the women who we've seen were not ill with ME until they became pregnant. Their children died shortly after birth, with major, major birth defects -- without brains, with serious heart defects and so on. The mothers went on to develop the typical symptoms of ME after the loss of their babies. This is something that's not being studied in the United States nor can it be studied, until we start taking this disease seriously and put a lot more money into epidemiological studies of this disease. There are also major, major cardiac aspects of this disease and there is almost no one in North America looking into this relationship." (ME is the term used for CFS by Canadian, British, and Australian researchers.)

Although most government studies deny an increased incidence of birth defects in Gulf War Vets, this is not the case. An informal study conducted by Senator Don Riegle's Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee found that 65% of 600 veterans babies were afflicted with dozens of medical problems which included severe birth defects (March 1995, The Progressive, p.30). Government scientist, Stephen Straus, of the NIAID appears to be the "poster boy" of the government. He has tried to portray both CFS and GWS as being the result of stress. Although there have been many responsible magazine articles written on GWS such as the Life Magazine article and the Gentlemen's Quarterly article, the magazine The American Spectator (May, 1995) had a very irresponsible piece of propaganda on GWS written by Michael Fumento.

        The article states, "Massive illness brought on by stress among veterans is nothing new. Stephen E. Straus, of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, told Science News, `There is a spectrum of this illness that is seen with all military adventures.' In World War I, some 60,000 British troops were found to suffer a mysterious `effort syndrome,' a problem that recurred in World War II. Similar phenomena have been called variously "soldier's heart," `neurasthenia,' `combat fatigue,' `shell shock,' or the Vietnam-era `post-traumatic stress disorder.' But, a major difference between then and now is that there is a mass media to publicize these claims." On page 196 of Osler's Web the same Straus has the same story for CFS that he has for GWS, "By 1987, the government's Stephen Straus had articulated his and, by inference, the government's view: the disease was an age-old problem--neurasthenia--merely highlighted by press accounts, a tenet that would be increasingly useful in preventing panic in years ahead. It was Paul Cheney's heartfelt belief, in contrast, that the disease which had struck Incline Village --and indeed the nation-- was new."

        Although it is hard to understand without a full knowledge of the history, industry, and politics of this country and the World, there is a current effort to create a One World Government or what is sometimes called a "New World Order". This is not based on new phenomena, but rather has been planned. One part of the plan is to decrease the world population. Vets who have had babies with birth defects are not likely to continue reproducing. The same is true of people with CFS. Also, people with CFS and GWS have lost their means to support themselves or do much of anything due to being disabled by their illness. Some of these people have committed suicide because of the extremely devastating effects of the illness on their lives. These people will not be reproducing. And, those who have not committed suicide are not likely to have children when they are unable to take care of themselves.

        In March of 1996 Hillary Johnson's book, Osler's Web came out. In this book she chronicles the research on CFS during the past 10 years and reports on the extraordinary failure of our institutions, mainly the NIH and the CDC to protect the public health from this incredibly debilitating infectious disease which has been shown to attack the brain and immune system and which is estimated to afflict two million Americans. In this book Johnson reports on the research findings showing similarities between AIDS and CFS in terms of immune abnormalities and studies of the brain that independent researchers have been reporting for years (see pages 484, 600, 601, 655). She also reports on the research of Elaine DeFreitas who was isolating fragments of a retrovirus in patients with CFS. She reports that the CDC failed to confirm DeFreitas's findings, but that the CDC was not following the very specific protocol which Elaine had provided to them and which she told them was essential for detecting the retrovirus fragments. Johnson reports that DeFreitas had offered several times for the CDC researchers to come to her lab so she could teach them her technique of isolating the retrovirus fragments which involved using PCR and extreme sensitivity. They refused. Johnson writes on page 376 that Defreitas, "knew she was sitting on top of explosive research". Johnson then writes that, "While she was attempting to solve this problem, DeFreitas was seriously injured in an automobile accident." Johnson reports later in the book that DeFeitas later became very ill with what some thought may be CFS. She became so sick and debilitated that she could not continue her research. Johnson also reported in her book that CFS patients where showing a high incidence of cancer but that the government decided not to pursue studies on this.

        When her book came out Johnson was on Good Morning America and Prime Time Live discussing CFS as an infectious and serious illness from which the CDC and NIH have not protected the public health. Immediately following that the media (TV and print) was saturated with stories about research done at John Hopkins University which has shown that many people with CFS have neurally mediated hypotension or low blood pressure involving low blood flow to the brain. What was not reported is that this is not specific to CFS and occurs with other diseases including AIDS.

        Information about the Nicolson's research is slowly getting out. Nancy says none of this could have been accomplished if it wasn't for Garth's good name and the help of God. She promises the publicity will continue. She is currently writing a screen play and she says Kevin Costner, Al Pacino, and Steven Spielberg have all expressed a desire to be part of this project.

        Get further information about Gulf War Syndrome. It is a communicable disease (actually several diseases) and is in the general population. Educate yourself. Read. THINK for yourself. Understand what has happened in "IraqGate" (as well as the experimentation that was done BEFORE the war) and why it has happened. Do your own research. Call 505-983-1856 to get and read books about adverse reactions to vaccines before allowing your children to be vaccinated or before getting vaccinated yourself. Do your own research. For reasons which are obvious when you gain an understanding of what has happened, this information is not likely to be on the news. For your own sake, for the Gulf War vets, for people who have CFS, for increased safety for Joyce Riley and the Nicolsons, for those telling the truth about AIDS, for our country and for the citizens of other countries who, like us, are being ruled by "elite groups" or as Nancy Nicolson puts it "sophisticated thugs..who have a lot of power and who are dealing above the White House" take responsibility for doing your part to share this information. Learn to distinguish reality form the "agenda line" or propaganda when you read the "news" or watch it on TV. Realize that there is much propaganda currently on "emerging viruses" in some movies and even in books including the book by Laurie Garrett, The Coming Plague...Emerging Viruses in a World Out of Balance, which as Horowitz explains in his book was funded with Rockefeller money, and which proposes that new viruses are emerging because the world is out of balance. It seems that a main purpose of this book is to lead the reader to believe that it is necessary to dramatically alter the way we interact with the environment and also that it is necessary to devote massive funds to the World Health Organization in order to provide world wide surveillance of emerging viruses in order to prevent or halt future outbreaks of disease. However, the book does not explain, as Horowitz does in his book, that it appears that the World Health Organization (WHO) has played a leading role in the creation and transmission (through vaccines) of emerging viruses including AIDS. Contact your Congress people and Senators and ask them what they are going to do to expose the truth about Gulf War Syndrome and to help the vets. According to the McAlvany report, Senator Riegle abruptly retired from the Senate in 1994 and his successor as chairman of the Senate Banking Committee has put the issue on the back burner. A full-blown bi-partisan Congressional investigation needs to be conducted. Pressure needs to be put on all Senators and Representatives for such an investigation and they need to know in no uncertain terms that you will oppose them in the next election if they do not get actively involved in this issue. The American Gulf War Veterans Association is an educational/action group whose purpose is to tell Americans the truth about Gulf War Illness and possible treatments. They serve to expose those who placed our servicemen and women in harms way and have perpetrated the cover-up. Joyce Riley, RN, (Captain in the USAF inactive Reserve) along with the Nicolson doctors is at present doing more than almost any single American to alert Americans to the plight of our Gulf War veterans and to the danger America faces from contagious biological warfare agents. AGWVA is not funded by the government or anyone else. They operate on a shoestring. Riley and her husband Dave Riddell have largely supported this effort out of their own pockets. Many of the vets are broke - they get the materials free - but someone has to pay for them.
