I was going to just link to this article in the Economist at first, but Shelley Batts has something to say about it here so I'll post them both. Namely, Gulf War Syndrome is pretty fucked up and it's entirely plausible that it's a result of the Army infecting them with chemicals used to ward off sand gnats and chemical weapons.
The weird thing is I'm pretty sure I remember reading an article with the same conclusion in Rolling Stone ten years ago.
In any case, this is serious and should probably be looked at, and maybe we should think about putting more money into care for out veterans. Just a thought.
