Warfare is barbaric – Agent Orange in Vietnam

Len Aldis, who set up theBritain-Vietnam Friendship Society, sent a comment on the post about Britain keeping out of the Vietnam war, detailing covert assistance.

It is shocking to read thatover three million Vietnamese and thousands of American servicemen and women, and their children, continue to suffer from the serious illnesses and disabilities caused by Agent Orange and that their petition seeking justice against the manufacturers of Agent Orange, headed by Monsanto and Dow Chemicals, was denied by the US Supreme Court on 2nd March 2009.

The BVFS petition can be signed on theBritish-Vietnam Friendship Society’s website – link given above.

Though all cases are quite different, recently the cases of denial of justice to haemophiliacs and also to Bhopal victims, covered in a sister site, reveal this as a global phenomenon, with a host of other examples – worthy of a dedicated website.
