As a civilian working for the United Nations Compensation Committee, I spent over three months in Kuwait and Bahrain. Yup, I've got it too. To the lady who said she has caught a "fungus over there", WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ANTHRAX. There is no test for it and there is no cure. This is a terminal illness. Doxycycline must be administered immediately following exposure for it to be effective. That's why the French soldiers do not have the illness; not one single case. Their CO's knew of the biological warfare going on, and the antidote for it, while our government (still) covers it up. Our overnment knew about these chenicals because we sold them all to Sadaam Hussein as late as 1989 from labs all over the United States. Three of the biggest stock holders in this industry are former president George Bush, Jim Baker - former Secretary of State, and John Deutsch - head of the CIA. I suggest all three of you victims study up by getting on the web under the Health topic, and type in Gulf War Illness, then click 'Illness". Especially interesting information comes from Captain Joyce Riley On her topic "Biological Warfare Conducted on U.S. Military Members and Corporate Genocide Levied On The Planetary Population". Get your collective heads out of the deset sand, become your own doctors, and do the research for yourselves. Best wishes. Daniel W.
