I'm back to work for the Global Network. Will continue to help Lisa Savage for US Senate campaign on my free time. Trying to self-isolate as much as possible. Best wishes and good luck to you all.

The U.S. fears legal and financial repercussions of acknowledging Agent orange and Depleted Uranium contamination. In the meantime victims, generations later, continue to suffer.

My landlady's husband, USAF Sgt Howard Lanning, died from Agent Orange. They had a successful painting and printing enterprise going, had put all their kids through college, a home and a couple of million in the bank, until the A.O. set in and took him down. The Military denied it until 5 years after he died, then only a cryptic statement that his "injuries were service connected".

My cousin U.S Army Sgt T. Hank Brown had the DU poisoning, for years the Army said that soldiers were "faking it" in order to collect somehow undeserved "benefits". Yep, real benefits come from dying a slow painful death. They successfully treated him though, using a series of purgative treatments, the same ones that are used to treat lead, mercury, cadmium and other metal poisons. He's 6 feet 5 inches tall, two meters in civilized countries with real measurement standards. He weighed before treatment a whopping 98 pounds. 45 kilos.
But he and the others were "faking".
They forbade him from disclosing any of this, yeah, right. Slim Chance and Fat Chance are synonymous.

There's one other, newer at least to in U.S.
Leischmaniasis Donovani. A parasitic flagellate paramecium which is vectored, in the case of Iraq, by a sand flea laying an egg under the skin of the victim. It's endemic in Colorado Springs, with its approximately 2 dozen nearby Military bases.

You wouldn't know it to hear the Pentagon story though.
