It's Official, More Than A Million U.S. Gulf War Troops Dead and Disabled
According to an official Department of Veterans Affairs Gulf war Information Systems Report dated August 2007, more than THREE AND A HALF MILLION U.S. troops who took part in the Gulf War since 1990 are dead or disabled.
On page 7 of the official report under the title Compensation and Pension Statistics August 2007, on line six of the chart the total Veterans who have been granted "Claims Granted Service Connection" is 1,201,104 Gulf War Veterans. A total of 1,603,743 claims have been filed (line 3).
The trillions of dollars cost of this illegal war in financial terms is one thing, in regard to killing and disabling millions of U.S. citizens it is entirely another matter. However, how many Gulf War Veterans are dead?
Statistics on Page 6 of the official report are shown below with the added DEAD GULF WAR VETERANS line
|Service Member Statistics August 2007|
|Estimated Living Veterans||621,230||343,922||965,152||3,560,714||4,525,866|
|- DEAD GULF WAR VETERANS (Served - Living)||75,612||88,589||164,201||2,148,474||2,312,67|
The official Department of Veterans Affairs report can be found at http://www1.va.gov/rac-gwvi/docs/GWVIS_Aug2007.pdf
The VA report defines the listed categories as follows:
|CONFLICT||Desert Shield / Desert Storm Other Deployments in the 1st Year Only Starting 2nd Year from 8/2/90 to 7/31/91|
|THEATER||Gulf War Region 8/1/91-Present|
|DEPLOYED||CONFLICT + THEATER. Active Duty and Activated Reserve Forces Only from 8/2/90 - to Present|
|ERA||Service Members Not Deployed in the Gulf War region from 8/2/90 - Present|
|Service Members||All Veterans who served on or after August 2, 1990, the start of the Gulf War.|
|Veteran Deaths||Veterans who died while listed in VBA’s Compensation and Pension Master Record (CPMR) and the Beneficiary Identification and Records Locator Subsystem (BIRLS).|
|Estimated Living Veterans||Service Members in active service on or after August 2, 1990 and who have not died.|
What is confusing is the enormous difference between the deaths listed amongst the deployed verses the non-deployed troops. How is it that three times more troops are dying and being disabled outside of the Gulf War region? We believe this is because the troops are immediately evacuated out of the Gulf when they are injured.
Evacuated troops are conveniently not counted as dead in the Gulf or Iraq, because they died in transit or back in the good old U.S.A. The same would apply to injured troops who are only classified as receiving disability months after they are returned to the U.S., conveniently avoiding government war statistics so that George Bush can say this disastrous war 'is going well'...
Clearly the government and mainstream media has managed to keep these millions of Gulf War casualties and deaths out of view of the public. It's as though the million plus disabled and dead U.S. Gulf War Veterans never even existed.
The VA report indicates that 2,312,675 U.S. troops who were on active duty between August 1990 and August 2007, have died. Clearly millions of soldiers on active duty in and from 1990 are not dead of old age or natural causes by 2007. The National Center for Health Statistics http://www.cdc.gov/nchs calculates the mortality rate in the U.S. at 825.9 deaths per 100,000 population, in 2005. That would imply that with a population of 6.8 million, one would expect around 60 thousand a year to die naturally, or around 1 million, not 2.3 million! Soldiers in active duty since 1990 would however still be in good physical shape in 2007, so the natural mortality would be substantially lower than 60 thousand per year. This leaves us with far more than a million unaccounted deaths.
We believe the injured troops are rushed back to the U.S. before they are dead, injured troops naturally are no longer on active duty, conveniently they die when they are no longer active and not counted amongst those "dying in Iraq".
The official Veterans report clearly blows the 4,000 dead veterans the government and mainstream media are reporting out of the gulf as a complete and utter lie. Millions of U.S. Gulf War troops are disabled and dead. This is no greater lie than the lies the government used to get the U.S. into the war in the first place.
Further information coming from reporters and troops in Iraq is that the government is simply bulldozing sand over dead troops and listing them as missing in action thereby avoiding any statistics regarding dead or disabled.
Millions of U.S. soldiers are dead and disabled, however, what of the innocent Iraqi's they murdered? Far more than a million Iraqi civilians are dead and many million have lost their homes and everything they own from a completely illegal invasion of their Nation by the U.S. How would American's feel if Iraq invaded and occupied the U.S.? At least an invasion of the U.S. by Iraq could be justified by the irrefutable fact that the U.S. has and uses weapons of mass destruction! The invasion of Iraq by the U.S. is far worse than the invasion of Poland by Hitler. Although Hitler probably would have used them if he had them, Hitler never used weapons of mass destruction when he invaded Poland.
The U.S. has blasted thousands of tons of nuclear waste into Iraq and the Gulf region which will continue killing innocent civilians and U.S. soldiers and their families for the forcible future.
Perhaps as astonishing regarding the invasion of Gulf Nations by the U.S., is that the Nation from whom the government alleged the so-called 9/11 terrorists came, Saudi Arabia, was not invaded by the U.S. According to the government, 15 out of 19 alleged 9/11 terrorists were Saudi's. The government alleged Osama Bin Laden, a Saudi who died in 2003, was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks and was responsible for blowing up the THREE World Trade Center Towers and Pentagon. Osama Bin Laden was an enemy of Saddam Hussein and had no association with Iraq.
Not even the government could establish any ties between their alleged 9/11 terrorists and Saddam Hussein or Iraq. So how come Bush never attacked Saudi Arabia, how come he attacked Iraq? When Hitler created his False Flag event to incite the German populous into the war with Poland, at least Hitler was smart enough to dress the prisoners he murdered along with his border patrol soldiers in Polish uniforms. When Bush blew up the World Trade Center buildings he accused Saudi Arabians and then went and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Well, perhaps Bush and many Americans are not aware that Iraq and Afghanistan are different countries to Saudi Arabia.
In his recent book, Allan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank, alleged the Gulf War was about oil. But was it? Is Greenspan, like the government trying to put up a smoke screen to the real reasons? When Saddam Hussein, who was put into power by the CIA, stopped selling his oil in the private Federal Reserve Bank's dollars, Greenspan and the shareholders of the Federal Reserve Bank immediately lost out billions of profits they would be handed with each oil sale.
The buyer of Iraq's oil would first have to buy dollars from the owners of the Federal Reserve Bank before they could by the oil. The owners of the Federal Reserve Bank create the dollars out of nothing, so this put billions of dollars of real assets a buyer of oil would have to exchange for the banks dollar notes into the share holders of the Federal Reserve Bank's pockets with every oil sale. What if other nations like Iran followed suit?
If oil were the reason for invading Iraq and the absurd and desperate excuses Bush is trying to make to invade Iran, why does Bush and his co-conspirators not want to also invade Saudi Arabia?
Reasons why so many U.S. soldiers are dead can be found on the www.libertryforlife.com site along with the reasons why the U.S. government, courts and military is controlled by a group of Lucifer worshiping criminals and bankers who have not only stolen our Nation they have also stolen our homes and businesses and threaten life on earth.
Soldiers stop terrorizing other Nations and come home and help us get the terrorists out of the U.S. government.
