The U.S. soldiers forced to burn toxic waste fell ill with cancer due to Pentagon negligence
The scandal in the U.S. Military received the wide publicity after it became known that the U.S troops were massively forced to burn the toxic chemical wastes in Iraq and Afghanistan that eventually lead to the thousand cases of cancer development and other oncological diseases among the American veterans.
During the hazardous getting rid of the toxic wastes the soldiers were not supplied with the special equipment protecting their respiratory system, reports say.
Meanwhile, Pentagon is denying the clear connection between the growth of oncology amongst the former U.S militants and the work of burning the wastes without protective equipment confirmed by the independent research. The US Department of Defense tries the various judicial tricks to avoid the public acknowledgement of this.
Herewith, the U.S. Military is also trying to avoid compensation and paying the treatment for veterans who received deadly diseases as a reward for their service. For a decade some of the veterans have been trying to prove that their cancer diseases are the result of criminal negligence by the US Department of Defense.
January 2019, a group of veterans, sick with cancer lost a lawsuit against the Pentagon in the case of burning toxic substances, although their evidence seemed undeniable. Admittedly, no matter how humane American propaganda depicts the US Army, the usual Pentagon soldier is a simple cannon fodder, which you can easily get rid of when it’s necessary.
The case of the U.S Navy Brian Alvarado were reported in the alternative American Press. Alvarado, who served two tours in restive regions ten years ago, got cancer because of the Pentagon’s inhuman carelessness. During his service, Alvarado for patrolled “hell,” which is what the guys called the open air burn pits on major U.S. military installations like Air Base Balad in Iraq. When he got home, according to his wife, he was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma (throat cancer) and began chemo and radiation in 2008.
According to Alvarado, the military authorities did absolutely nothing to protect the militants from the effects of deadly gases. All his complaints and petitions did not have any effect. In September 2017, Alvarado passed away.
Alvarado was shown in the film "Delay, Deny, Hope You Die: How America Poisoned its Soldiers" by director and producer Gregg Lovett. The title of the film can reflect the Pentagon’s rule of conduct for its own deadly sick veterans.
It’s often heard of the omnipotence of the American judicial system in protecting ordinary citizens from the arbitrariness of the authorities. However, the reality is that it’s almost impossible for the ordinary people to achieve victory over the state in court.
That is what Iraq veteran Richard Stayskal experienced when he got lung cancer right after the service.
This thread will keep you up to date on the SFC Richard Stayskal Military Medical Accountability Act. We are so close to getting our Military and their families the rights they deserve! https://t.co/OWW1OBt06H— Whistleblower Law Firm (@WhistleblowerLF) November 25, 2019
The military doctors were not able to diagnose the cancer on an early disease so Stayskal can soon die. He has not succeeded yet in his attempts to sue the Pentagon because, as practice shows, the US government will do everything to prevent the precedents like this.
