“Gulf War Illness veterans are just plain cowards” – Simon Wessely
(Disclaimer, or rather, Un-disclaimer: We are not making this up. We are accused of creating scientifically valid illness signs with our magical brains, but psychiatrists say they do not know how we do it. Not making this up….)
So says the British “psychiatrist,” Simple Simon, hired by the U.S. Pentagon to trash Gulf War Illness veterans, while he totally knew otherwise.
The following is a report Wessely wrote for the Pentagon:
2000– Role of vaccinations as risk factors for ill health inveterans of the Gulf war: cross sectional study
“Among veterans of the Gulf warthere is a specific relation between multiple vaccinations given duringdeployment and later ill health. Multiple vaccinations in themselves do not seem to be harmful but combined with the “stress” of deployment they may be associated with adverse health outcomes. These results imply that every effort should be made to maintain routine vaccines during peacetime.”
Yet, Wessely had this to say, later: see “SomethingOld, Something New…”):
“One way of doing that is through neuro-imaging, but we didn’t get the money to do that, so instead we have used sophisticated neuro-psychological testing,”… — [NOTSCIENTIFICALLY VALID-SASH].
“Those tablets, the NAPS tablets, it’s just not possible to study. Pesticides, we don’t find evidence. [The antidotes to nerve agents given to veterans are a problem- SASH] Chemical weapons, well, we don’t think that for the British armed forces that was a big issue. But we do think there is a relationship between a particular pattern of protection [long for “cowardice”- SASH] and what happened later.”—[NOT SCIENTIFICALLY VALID-SASH]
Those nerve agent antidote tablets? They cause immunosuppression, as does DEET.
(Sounds familiar, though, right? Hypervaccination in the presence of immune suppressors like fungi?)
2004 — Pyridostigmine bromide (PYR) alters immunefunction in B6C3F1 mice.
“Pyridostigmine bromide (PYR) is an anticholinesterase drug indicated for the treatment of myasthenia gravis and neuromuscular blockade reversal. It acts as a reversible cholinesterase inhibitor and was used as a pretreatment for soldiers during Operation Desert Storm to protect against possible nerve gas attacks. Since that time, PYR has been implicated as a possible causative agent contributing to Gulf War Illness. PYR’s mechanism of action has been well-delineated with regards to its effects on the nervoussystem, yet little is known regarding potential effects on immunological function. To evaluate the effects of PYR on immunological function, adult female B6C3F1 mice were gavaged daily for 14 days with PYR (0, 1, 5, 10, or 20mg/kg/day). Immune parameters assessed were lymphoproliferation, natural killer cell activity, the SRBC-specific antibody plaque-forming cell (PFC) response, thymus and spleen weight and cellularity, and thymic and splenic CD4/CD8lymphocyte subpopulations. Exposure to PYR did not alter splenic and thymus weight or splenic cellularity. However, 20 mg PYR/kg/day decreased thymic cellularity with decreases in both CD4+/CD8+ (20 mg/kg/day) and CD4-/CD8- (10and 20 mg/kg/day) cell types. Functional immune assays indicated that lymphocyte proliferative responses and natural killer cell activity were normal; whereas exposure to PYR significantly decreased primary IgM antibody responses to a T-cell dependent antigen at the 1, 5, 10 and 20 mg/kg treatment levels for 14 days. This is the first study to examine the immunotoxicological effects of PYR and demonstrate that this compound selectively suppresses humoral antibody responses.”
Repeat: “This is the first study to examine the immunotoxicological effects of PYR and demonstrate that this compound selectively suppresses humoral antibody responses.”
Maybe not. Maybe some such studies were conducted by the CDC or DARPA and were not published.
DEET and Immunosuppression:
N,N,-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET) suppresses humoral immunologicalfunction in B6C3F1 mice.
DEET and Immunosuppression, especially combined with Nerve Agent Antidote:
Evaluation of immunotoxicity induced by single or concurrent exposure to N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), pyridostigmine bromide (PYR), and JP-8 jet fuel.
More scientifically valid data: Garth Nicolson on Mycoplasma (the fungal contaminant for which they put Thimerosal in vaccines) in Gulf War Illness veterans:
Continuing research into Gulf War illness.
We’ve seen from the previous SASH criminal charge sheets for the Justice Department (sic), that mycoplasma causes fatigue via hypoxia via erythrocyte membrane osmotic changes and changes to mitochondria. In other words, if one only looks though the lens of “You’re Not In Our “Doctor” cult, where “We, the SPECIAL PEOPLE with SPECIAL ABILITIES that are most of all SUPERIOR to you,” one might easily dismiss chronic complainers as bullshitters of some kind. It’s the same with cops and other types of cults. They always make fun of their victims. It’s a path to damnation, however, since the science (the Truth) also says…
“But as useful as hypocrisy can be, it’s apparently not quite as basic as the human instinct to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Your mind can justify double standards, it seems, but in your heart you know you’re wrong.”
In order to be forgiven you have to attempt to make restitution and that requires admitting what you have done. Cult or no cult. Gang or no gang. “Just following orders” did not fly at Nurenberg, either. There is still the element of willfulness.
More scientifically valid data (look closely at the negative biomarkers in the Chronic Fatigue victims also; clue):
Changes in Immune Parameters Seen in Gulf War Veterans but Not in Civilians with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
And this is all not to mention that during the first Iraq War in 1991, CNN showed a video clip where the soldiers were all standing around unprotected as they blew up the buried chemical and biological weapons… and the earth moved and the dust rose…
2014: New research links Iraq dust to ill soldiers
“An Armed Forces Health Surveillance Center report from 2012 also showed a 150 per 1,000 rate of clinic visits for respiratory diseases before the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a rate of 173 per 1,000 rate during the war years.”
Now let’s take a look at how you can have cortisol-reactivated Epstein-Barr virus if you are an astronaut or medical school student (clue, sleep-wake cycle) in the National Library of Medicine/pubmed:

So if you’re an astronaut, you may have a real disease. If a soldier or some other commoner, no, it’s the Salem Witch Trials for you:
1993–Stress and the memory T-cell response to the Epstein-Barr virus in healthy medicals students.
“This study investigated the memory T-cell proliferative response to several early and late Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) polypeptides. Blood samples were collected twice, 1 month before a 3-day block of examinations and again on the last day of the exam series. Ss were 25 healthy, EBV seropositive medical students. The proliferative response to 5 of the 6 EBV polypeptides significantly decreased during examinations. In addition, Ss high (above the median) in seekingsupport, as measured by the COPE, had lower proliferative responses to 3 EBV polypeptides (p17, p52/50, and p85),as well as higher levels of antibody to EBV virus capsid antigen. The data provide further evidence that psychological stresscan modulate the cellular immune response to latent EBV.”
The above report was cited by… 12 more reports:
This one among them:
2011– Fatigue in medical residents leads to reactivation of herpes virus latency.
”The main objective of thisstudy was to detect fatigue-induced clinical symptoms of immune suppression in medical residents. Samples were collected from the subjects at rest, following the first night (low-stress), and the last night (high-stress) of night float.Computerized reaction tests, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and Wellness Profile questionnaires were used to quantify fatigue level. DNA of human herpes virusesHSV-1, VZV, EBV, as well as cortisol and melatonin concentrations, werem easured in saliva. Residents at the high-stress interval reported being sleepier compared to the rest interval. EBV DNA level increased significantly at both stress intervals, while VZV DNA level increased only at low-stress. DNA levels of HSV-1 decreased at low-stress but increased at high-stress. Combined assessment of the viral DNA showed significant effect of stress on herpes virus reactivation at both stress intervals. Cortisol concentrations at both stress intervals were significantly higher than those at rest.”
Conclude: If you are a medical school student or astronaut, your stress will produce a real disease (use Pubmed to discover cortisol does this even independently of stress), but if you are a plain old commoner or a soldier, no, you are having a “pattern of protection” (are scared), or are somatizing or producing scientifically valid illness biomarkers with your magical brain- the definition of somatization disorders.
Look next at this description of somatization illnesses (also called “medically unexplained”) from an “expert” seen on Fox “News” describing the Justina Pelletier CPS kidnap case, which became an international scandal revealing what knuckleheads make decisions in New England “hospitals.” This psychiatrist does not even question the illogic of claiming that people can actually produce valid medical illness biomarkers with their psychogenic powers alone, when, we know that if anyone had such abilities they would not inflict the disease on themselves, but upon people like the CPS, psychiatry, or the CDC. At the same time, he claims there is no scientific evidence for how someone could produce such scientifically valid illness signs in themselves with their magical brains:
Follow: “… causing her to believe she is medically ill, when she is not—that they have kindled in her a ‘somatoform disorder’ in which bodily symptoms actually have purely psychological roots, not anatomic ones…“
And: “First, we lack sufficient research data to back up my clinical experience and professional opinion (which some psychiatrists would agree with and some would disagree with).”
Conclude: A person can have a real disease, but not a real disease, and no one knows how they do it. And “We lack the science that proves this is magic.” Wow, thanks.
This bullshit sounds exactly like “magic” or “witch” or “conjurer” accusation to a normal human. We could take this one step further: Send Justina Pelletier and her kind to the CIA and see if she can do remote viewing of Putin’s submarines or kill goats with her eyeballs, alone. If yes, she is a good witch. If not, she is a bad witch. If she can only inflict illness on herself, she must be a bad witch. Fair? Only a not-very-good witch would issue backfiring incantations.
This is America. We have to listen to that kind of crazy malarkey on the “news,” not to mention the horrors of those who experience CPS-psychiatric Witch Trials, personally. Somatizing, cowardly soldiers … against the backdrop of known disease and known biomarkers.…and mini-witches still terrorizing the Boston area.
This paper does not intend to list all the data available on the First Gulf War Illness. Some people have evidence for other exposures. However, this vaccination business that Wessely first reported explains how people who were not even deployed might have acquired an illness. We know the mechanism of fungal contamination (mycoplasma) of the vaccines or the vaccination of an immune suppressed person can result in the live viruses being reactivated as shown in the other USDOJ Criminal Charge Sheets. We know from the cytokines study listed here, the Gulf War Illness veterans seemed to have overall higher markers of immune activation, which conflicts with the other immunosuppression data, but we do know there are scientific realities to be had and acquired. Yet, the Pentagon hired Simon Wessely to not only trash the sick veterans, but people with ‘Chronic Lyme” and ME/CFS, too.
No one asks Simon Wessely (or anyone else) how in the hell people can magically produce real signs of real illness in themselves and ONLY themselves. It is logical to assume some of these people may have stress induced Epstein-Barr like the astronauts and medical students, but what kind of arrogance blames the victim in this 21stCentury, and makes them suffer every physical, social, and financial deprivation and humiliation, and does it for money?
There is a new definition of WHORE we would like to enter in the next DSM, 5.1:
”One who debases their profession to the point where they would declare their victims ‘conjurers’;
”The WHORES have no awareness of their illness (this psychopathy is evident the whole world for to see, yet they insist on being interviewed as ‘experts’);
“They continually claim other people are not sick, either.”
No one is ever sick, and there are no doctors. There is no medicine, and there is not even a DSM or PDR. In fact, no one has ever heard of mammals or biology or chemicals. Everything is, well, conjured. Is this what Churchill predicted in “50 Years Hence?” That the “science” would literally resort to witch hunts?
The recently-former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health, Thomas Insel, said this about psychiatry (it is not valid, it’s just a religion or a belief system that believes in magic):
“The goal of this new manual, as with all previous editions, is to provide a common language for describing psychopathology. While DSM has been described as a “Bible” for the field, it is, at best, a dictionary, creating a set of labels and defining each. The strength of each of the editions of DSM has been “reliability” – each edition has ensured that clinicians use the same terms in the same ways. The weakness is its lack of validity. Unlike our definitions of ischemic heart disease, lymphoma, or AIDS, the DSM diagnoses are based on a consensus about clusters of clinical symptoms, not any objective laboratory measure. In the rest of medicine, this would be equivalent to creating diagnostic systems based on the nature of chest pain or the quality of fever. Indeed, symptom-based diagnosis, once common in other areas of medicine, has been largely replaced in the past half century as we have understood that symptoms alone rarely indicate the best choice of treatment. .. Patients with mental disorders deserve better…”
Richard Horton, editor of Lancet:
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue,” Dr. Horton commented in The Lancet.
‘Sounds like there is plenty of evidence that the accusers are the guilty ones. In fact, it is a national consensus. I suppose that is a tough pill for the “doctor” cults to swallow. Unfortunately we the accused know of no way to exorcise the Demons of FRAUD here. We only know what was the diabolical delusion that put all those “MD” assholes under their own spell. Appealing to their vanity. Flattery.
“YOU! are UNIQUE!! SPECIAL!!! SMARTER THAN THE REST!!”
