Vietnam Demands Monsanto Be Held Liable Over U.S. MilitaryAgent Orange Spraying

by Thinker

Individuals and Organizations are showing the people who they support first by their actions. Who is choosing profits and wars over people and peace???

Americans shouldn’t be suprised as the debt from crimes against humanity by the military industrial complex that they will have to pay for. While the U.S. has invaded Iran, Libya, Syria, for chemical weapons rumors, the “TRUTH” is coming out, that the nation that has used the most chemicals on any humans is the UNITED STATES!!!

What did past presidents say when they lied to the American people and bombed innocent nations and citizens with chemicals??? They had a bad leader. Well, Americans your history of your leaders and wars, bombings for humanity, refugee displacement are what the tax paying citizens of the U.S. can be remembered by from the rest of the world. A nation where the people have looked the other way when the abuse is to non-Americans. What most Americans don’t know, is everything that is given elsewhere, they’ve already had. The chemical spills in the waters of the U.S. would make cause outrage if the mainstream news reported on it.

Keep the truth from the masses, keeps the corruption coming full speed ahead!

“We believe Monsanto should be responsible for compensating Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange for the damages caused by the company’s herbicides” by Andrea Germanos, staff writer.

In the wake of a U.S. court ordering Monsanto to pay $289 million in damages to man who says its weedkiller Roundup caused his cancer, Vietnam has called on the agrichemical giant to pay reparations to Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange. “This case is a precedent that rejects previous arguments that the herbicides supplied to the U.S. military by Monsanto and other U.S. chemical companies during the Vietnam War are not harmful to people’s health,” spokesperson for the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nguyen Phuong Tra said to reporters last week.

“We believe Monsanto should be responsible for compensating Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange for the damages caused by the company’s herbicides,” she said. Monsanto, now a unit of Bayer, was one of the manufacturers of Agent Orange. The U.S. dumped roughly 45 million liters of the notorious compound, which contained dioxin, on Vietnam during the war, unleashing “a slow-onset disaster whose devastating economic, health, and ecological impacts … are still being felt today.”

With its long-lasting impacts on the Vietnamese, as well as U.S. service-members, it’s been called “one of the most tragic legacies of the war.” Viet Nam News reported Sunday that the Association for Victims of Agent Orange/Dioxin (VAVA), which is working for justice on behalf of roughly 3 million Vietnamese affected by the chemical warfare, is:

CITIZENS OF MIDDLE EAST WILL BE FOLLOWING THE PEOPLE OF VIETNAM

By this time you have likely heard of the atrocity that recently took place in which over 1,000 Syrian civilians reportedly died at the hands of a chemical weapon attack. Seeing the video and images of dead or helpless Syrian civilians struggling for life reminds me of another terrible weapon of war — depleted uranium. It is no secret that the U.S., with the assistance of other governments, used depleted uranium in the Gulf and Iraq War. A simple Google search of this topic can produce dozens and dozens of credible reports or stories to confirm these war crimes. For example, an important report on Harvard University’s website discusses the fallout of depleted uranium contamination in Iraq. Dr. Souad N. Al-Azzawi, who authored the report after the Gulf War, wrote that:

“Depleted Uranium (DU) weaponry has been used against Iraq for the first time in the history of recent wars. The magnitude of the complications and damage related to the use of such radioactive and toxic weapons on the environment and the human population mostly results from the intended concealment, denial and misleading information released by the Pentagon about the:
