U.S. Soldiers Used as Guinea Pigs, Now Denied Care

“Support” the troops is something that doesn’t actually happen. It’s a propaganda slogan conjured up by some of the most evil, despicable PR assholes the society has ever produced.  In fact the US government sees its soldiers as disposable components that it can ignore after the part breaks.

It even conducts experiments on them…

At least 70,000 troops are covered by a class-action suit claiming that these experiments caused cancers, emphysema and other serious illnesses. What they want seems understandable: to be told exactly what substances they were given and how risky they were, to be relieved of any confidentiality agreements they signed during the testing, and to receive care for any conditions that resulted.

AP:

“A state task force in 1994 found Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientists fed the unwitting boys radioactive oatmeal and milk for a Quaker Oats nutrition study.”

“Thousands of children warehoused in overcrowded orphanages and facilities for “feebleminded” children underwent spinal taps, lobotomies and electric shock. They were also exposed to viruses, radioactive and hazardous chemicals and were administered psychotropic drugs.

“Often lacking legal or family advocates, they were treated in the decades after World War II as cheap and abundant raw material for trials that proved lucrative for scientists who conducted the tests and for the institutions housing the kids.”

These are serious fucking crimes that authority figures get away with, with impunity.  The film The Constant Gardener shows how the same experiments are now moved to Africa.

You know sometimes I don’t feel so strongly against the death penalty.
