  • This is sad. We have 62,000+ homeless veterans in this country. I have to wonder if that number would be closer to 57,000 if it weren't for this sort of dangerous and reckless experimentation.
  • Back in 1975 Elliott Gould starred in a "comedy" about this. Link
  • But do they stare at goats?
  • My mother works for a Catholic program that puts homeless veterans into apartments. The stories I hear are absolutely crushing.
  • I didn't even RTFA. No more Chili-Mac!
  • i know another government that thought nothing of experimenting on its people.
  • This is the reason I've been hardening my brain cells for an eventual psychedelic gas attack.
  • Same group that worked on the "gay bomb"?
  • But we want to entrust more of our services to the government, right?
  • I can't say as I blame someone who wants to do such experiments. It's a frustrating thing to have your science hampered so greatly by morality.

    Actually doing them on innocent people, however, is too much.

    I advocate testing(drugs and psychology) on hardened criminals, but even then you have humanitarian's to contend with. [I'll allow that it can be difficult to get accurate results from people who are already psychotic murders and otherwise already sick]

    So we test on monkeys, PETA people are easier to write off as wingnuts but still get heard enough to stop the "worst" of it...sometimes...

    So we test on rats, and fields like psychology are severely limited.
  • Unh huh...:

    In December 1951, a Reuters's news dispatch reported that the U.S. commander of troops in Korea, Gen. Matthew Ridgeway, secretly brought Ishii to Korea as a biological warfare consultant to the U.S. military. Subsequent news reports stated that Ishii made two trips to Korea as a consultant for the Army.

    In early 1952, the North Korean and Chinese governments accused the U.S. of employing biological weapons. North Korea's foreign affairs minister alleged that the U.S. had dropped hundreds of bombs filled with anthrax, plague and cholera on his country. The Pentagon scoffed at the notion and flatly denied any and all accusations.

    To further bolster their charges against the U.S., the Chinese released the "confessions" of 25 captured American airmen. Along with the confessions, China also released a batch of photographs that they claimed were of "American germ bombs" dropped on North Korea.

    The United States categorically denied the charges and maintained that the POW pilots and airman had been "brainwashed" into making any confessions. The U.S. demanded that the World Health Organization and the Red Cross be called to investigate the allegations, but the Chinese refused to officially recognize either organization as impartial.

    Historians Stephen Endicott and Edward Hagerman write convincingly in their book, "The United States and Biological Warfare," that the U.S. extensively experimented with and deployed biological weapons, including anthrax, during the Korean War. They offer "hard evidence" that the Pentagon lied to Congress and to the American public about wartime activities in Korea and paint a vivid portrait of the U.S. Army and Camp Detrick researchers methodically exploiting captured data on Japanese experiments.
  • This text is now purple: But we want to entrust more of our services to the government, right?


    Government is one big monolithic entity that is the same from bow to stern, right?

    This is just another bullshiat partisan attack. Government can do both bad and good simultaneously just like any other organization.
  • My uncle, who was a retired E-8 in the Air Force told me this tip before I went in the Army. He said when you join up they give you 9 marbles and every time you make a rank they take one marble away. So get out before you lose all your marbles.

    /I have 5 marbles left

  • KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation had to start somewhere.

    What makes those people innocent? They joined the military, that means there's a good chance they are guinea pigs for something. Not saying it's right, just sayin'.

    What do you think soldiers are to the military?

    The veal parmesan is just a breaded hockey puck with melted cheese!

    Awesome band name!

  • Old news is so tangerine.
  • Man, that article is actually pretty fascinating. I don't know if I should be surprised at some of this but I am.

    What makes people innocent is... that they're not criminals...

    And soldiers =/= rats.

    Go be anti-military derptastic somewhere else.
