Experimental drug given to British troops in Iraq and Afghanistan | UK news | The Guardian

To commemorate Gulf War II, some pharmaceutical companies are setting the stage for Gulf War Syndrome II. Given all the Special Interest Groups (oil companies, Halliburton, Blackwater) who are making money red hand over bloodied fist during this occupation, I guess it’s no surprise that the drug companies are allowed into the party as well. Still, sickening, and possibly literally so.

Soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq are being treated with an experimental blood-clotting drug that has not been fully tested.

Because randomised controlled trials have not yet been carried out into the drug’s effectiveness, it is impossible to know whether it is doing more harm than good to patients.
