    Hi there,

    in an extensive study analyzing the results of about 100 earlier studies concerning the Gulf war syndrome, the authors came to the conclusion that:
    1: The Gulf War syndrome is caused by chemical agents
    2: The authors claim to be able of differientiating Golf War syndrome patients from non gulf war syndrom patients based on physical data.
    3: The causative agent was a mixture of an nerve gas medicaments taken prophylactically and pestizides used in tents.

    With this, the chances of countless veterans to receive the aid and compensation they deserve significantly increased.

    Vets to committee: Well, DUH.

    Now maybe they'll begin to get the coverage and the help they need. It's a start.

    Damn the beaurocrats and the red tape they fornicate on...

    Yes, while most of these studies were quite clear, they know have a high profile one that can be used to sue unwilling beurocrats for the aid they should get.
