IS THE GULF WAR SYNDROME A MYSTERY DISEASE
OR IS THE CAUSE BEING COVERED UP?

The answer to this question is answered in a video documentary entitled Beyond Treason; The Deliberate Exposure of US Military Personnel to Deadly Health Hazards. This program shows how the military has used its soldiers as Guinea Pigs in chemical-warfare experiments. Hundreds of men were deliberately exposed to radiation from atom-bomb tests. Thousands were infected with Hepatitis from an untested vaccine. In Iraq, tens of thousands were exposed to a deadly mix of experimental vaccines, fallout from depleted uranium weapons, and smoke from destruction of chemical-warfare stockpiles. The horrifying impact on innocent civilians is also documented – including infection of the families of returning veterans. The facts make it clear that this is the origin of the Gulf War Syndrome. Yet, the government claims that it is a mystery disease.
FORMER PENTAGON EXPERT ON DEPLETED URANIUM EXPLAINS WHY SO MANY YOUNG VETERANS ARE DYING OF ILLNESS
Dr. Doug Rokke is a career army officer who was the Pentagon's most senior DU expert during the first Gulf War. Appearing as a guest on our Reality Zone conference call, he described the illness and death inflicted on civilians, combatants, and even his own men who were assigned to clean up the mess, a task that was never completed. He tells how he was ordered to conceal this truth from the world and he confirms that Iraq did have biological weapons as early as 1990, but they came from the U.S. Army ostensibly to be used against Iran and the Kurds. The destruction of these stockpiles during the U.S. invasion in 2003 caused a deadly spill into the environment that harmed Iraqis and American troops alike. This incredibly important testimony was recorded and now may be heard here.
WHY IS THIS OF CONCERN TO FREEDOM FORCE?
This is not merely a health issue nor is it one of mistaken government policy. While it does not directly relate to the defense of freedom, it is an integral part of the struggle between collectivism and individualism. Collectivism tolerates deceit and the sacrifice of individuals if perceived as necessary for the greater good of the greater number. The people now in control of the US government are collectivists. Therefore, they see nothing wrong with exposing thousands of soldiers to health hazards and then lying about it so long as it can be claimed that it is beneficial in the long run for all other soldiers or for the nation at large. The consequences of this ideology are seldom seen so graphically as in this issue – which is why we think it is important. If we can help people realize that the real culprit here is collectivism, then we have furthered our mission on behalf of freedom.
HAS THE U.S. BECOME THE EVIL EMPIRE?
To properly assimilate the information in this program, it must be remembered that the United States government is not alone in the perpetration of these horrors. Just about every government in the modern world has participated, or now is participating, in similar activities. There are no so-called good guys out there – and that includes the governments that currently complain the loudest about the US. Without this realization, it is tempting to conclude that the United States is the Evil Empire, and that the solution is to support America’s enemies in hopes that she will be destroyed. Without thinking it through, we can be led to join the “hate America” crowd. However, aiding America’s enemies would change nothing except to tip the balance of power from one group of madmen to another. The atrocities would continue – and possibly even become worse. Within the US, this is similar to focusing on the corruption of Republicans with the goal of replacing them with Democrats – or, if Democrats are in office, focusing on their corruption with the goal of replacing them with Republicans. People are led to look at the evil of one group while ignoring the evil of the group that would replace it. Like a ping-pong ball, the public is bashed from one paddle to another with no real difference between the two.
WHY DO THEY DO THIS?
That leads to the second issue, which is that this documentary does an excellent job of explaining what has been going on but omits the question of why. We are left with the impression that the perpetrators of these policies are simply bad people with no trace of humanity. While that may be true in some cases, it must be realized that, in order to perpetrate these atrocities, many people must be involved in the chain of command, and there has to be an acceptable justification for them to go along. Unless one understands their rationalization, these events are incomprehensible. As mentioned previously, these acts are justified in the minds of their perpetrators by the ethics of collectivism. One of the tenets of collectivism is that individuals or minority groups must be sacrificed, if necessary, for the greater good of the greater number. In practice, that translates into the greater good of the state – and that further translates into the greater good of the government – and that translates into the greater good of the leaders of the government. What may seem like an atrocity to us is merely collateral damage to them along the road to a New World Order.
WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?
All governments today are in the hands of collectivists, which is why working in favor of one against another will never restore freedom. The only path to reform is for citizens in each country to recapture control of the power centers of society and provide new leaders who will reset the national course from collectivism to individualism. There is no other solution. That is the mission of Freedom Force.
