What was used to spray down vehicles to 'decontaminate' them?  ... something like a spray painting apparatus system

 

Even Affecting Dept of Defense Civilians in Iraq and at home.

 

SNIP was Deadly on Flies - If they touched it - they would instantly die.  Photo courtesy of Chad Pagel, MP in Kuwait, 1990-1991

One of these is American made, 

the other made in Saudi Arabia

 

The flies just barely touch this stuff 

and they are immediately dead.  *

 

This was set around on the dash board of vehicles 

and where troops sleep.

 

"Goodness," said Chad, 

"When the wind blew, maybe were were eating it?!"

 

What were the crystals that killed the flies?

Maybe the old-fashioned way would have been better?

 

2-butoxyethanol and
 diethylene glycol monobutyl ether

 
Are listed right along with DEET as pesticides US troops were exposed to in this book:
 

The National Academy of Sciences,  "Gulf War and Health" Vol 2,  2003

 page 612 on Insecticides and Solvents pdf

 

mentions these 2 chemicals as being used at that time:  

 

Now, that is the KNOWN source somewhere ... so what about the degreasers and cleaners that those may not even be disclosed?  

 

2-butoxyethanol and diethylene glycol monobutyl ether give the 'GWS' symptoms  and it is undeniably known to be a pesticide/poison which Troops WERE exposed to.

 

Studies on GW vets suggest a type of insecticide called ORGANOPHOSPHATES 

The symptoms they found with vets in trials look more like the symptoms of 2-butoxyethanol poisoning, which, by the way, is NOT an organophosphate.  It does not have phosphorus in its chemical formula.

 

The study passes over depression and eye damage

which must not fit the 'mold' of what organophosphates do.

These are primary causes of harm with 2-butoxyethanol and add to that suicidal tendencies, too

 

Organophosphate pesticides can be harmful, but not pure phosphates, so as with everything else - read the MSDS before launching into hysteria. - Product developer

 

More info:  The HRA and the RAND survey indicate that some service members may have been overexposed to pesticides as stated in this report http://www.gulflink.osd.mil/pest_final/pest_final_s02.htm#IIA

My question to Special.Assistant@deploymenthealth.osd.mil "What are the carbonate pesticides? What disclosed ingredients did they have? Were any stated as proprietary and therefore undisclosed? If so, what were the warnings for use on the product?" -

RAND study

 

We need to know what the troops clean their rifles with since July, 1989  *

We need to know what they wash the navy aircraft carrier decks with.

We need to know any and all products used in the military since 1989 that contain 2-butoxyethanol and what the percentage is Froggy    Corexit 9527?

We need to know what the military attempted to use it to disperse the various chemical agents that were blowing across the battlefield from the bombing of suspected chemical sites? Froggy contribution

We need to know what they used to lessen the environmental damage from the burning oil wells.

The Tribune posted this article - the Community Chad Pagel lives in is hosting a fund raiser on Oct 25, 2003: a portion of which follows,

"Unfortunately, Chadís health continues to worsen from these chronic illnesses.  He has been unable to work since early May 2003.  He has applied to the Veterans Administration for disability benefits, but this is a long process, and he is still undergoing tests to determine his eligibility."

 

"As members of our community, 

we need to help those who put their life on the line, 

by serving in the US Military.

 

 

Protecting and providing freedom for people 

they donít know, for causes they might not understand,

 but simply because theyíre an American Soldier."
