Nice try, but Dr. Han Kang of the Veterans Administration reviewed the
medical records of more than 700 children born to U.S. combat troops,
and compared them to their non-combat cohort. There was an increase of
20% over what had been voluntarily reported. However, the overall
increase was 120% more (not a "220% increase," as I have mistakenly
said; sorry; it's 220% of the non-combat cohort.) See page 10 of
http://www1.va.gov/gulfwar/docs/GulfWarNov03.pdf -- Q.E.D.
Equally nice try. You were talking about birth defects in Basra and
Kuwait. You have tried to switch the topic because you know that you
were wrong. So I take it back; it really isn't all that nice a try.
