This extremely powerful 89 minute film presents comprehensive documentation from United States Government archives of a massive cover-up, including military and civilian experimentation, dating back over 60 years. As ailing Gulf War Heroes from all 27 coalition countries slowly die of "unknown causes," they wait for answers from their respective governments, but no satisfying or even credible answers have come forth from the military establishment. Records that span over a decade point to negligence and even culpability on the part of the U.S. Department of Defense and their "disposable army" mentality. From the first Gulf War the VA has determined that 250,000 troops are now permanently disabled, 15,000 troops are dead and over 425,000 troops are ill and slowly dying from what the Department of Defense still calls a "mystery disease." How many more will have to die before action is taken? Written by William Lewis

A Must See
1 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Whoa! talk about factually incorrect, wallabee2003? Did you even watch the movie? This documentary isn't propaganda its anti-propaganda.

They do focus on incoming Iraqi chemical weapons and explain how the troops were inadequately warned or protected if you watch the film you'll see that for your self.

The U.S. military outclassed Iraq and would have achieved victory without the use of DU due to advanced computerized targeting capabilities. Most of the KIA in '91 were from friendly fire.

I think the purpose was to illustrate a precedent and transcend the false left right political paradigm.

Yes their are other documentaries that focus more on the implementation of DU and I recommend everyone watch this or another documentary detailing the effects of DU contamination.

What type of military commanders fail to offer proper protection to the chemical & biological agents which they were involved in selling to Iraq (Iran-contra affair) and then expose the troops and the poor civilians to the additional permanent hazards of DU?
