Dear List and Felicity, "On a different issue but relating to health. I have read a number of items talking of Iraqis and US/UK soldiers suffering appalling rashes (not your average heat, allergy rash, but like burns and a change in the skin pigment) if correct, this is a re-run of one of the early symptoms of Gulf war one and depleted uranium/Gulf war syndrome." Felicity and others, could you if you have time, let me know the sources for above reports on burn-like rashes? The legal initiative at the UN needs that info, soonest,thanks! And hear, hear about Dirk A's fabulous ongoing work. This is where CASI's foundational knowledge is so needed, because we have baselines for these court cases and legal reports... and it sounds like they are multiplying, Philippa >===== Original Message From farbuthnot <firstname.lastname@example.org> ===== >Dear List, > >I willingly signed both of Dirk's petitions (September and then a recent >one) re Iraq.
