IS THE SILENCE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE COMPLICITY IN WAR CRIMES?

US Veterans against war
WHY AMERICA MUST HAVE AN ANTI-WAR UPRISING
Ranch Hand — a US government operation
Destroyed 1.2 million acres of land in Vietnam
4.8 million gallons of chemicals
U.S. helicopter sprays the defoliant agent orange during the Vietnam War.
A federal appeals court upheld on Friday the dismissal of a civil lawsuit against major U.S. chemical companies, Monsanto, Dow Chemical, and other companies, brought by Vietnamese plaintiffs over the use of the chemical agent orange in Vietnam.
Ranch Hand — a US government operation — defoliated 1.2 million acres of land and dispensed 4.8 million gallons of chemicals over Vietnam.
Doing this has created more than 1 million Agent Orange victims.
Of the two to three million that survived, a hundred thousand were seriously physically disabled and a million more suffered lifelong Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Not long after coming home, another 50,000 would die, some of mysterious illnesses, many by suicide.

These people love Ollie North and John McCain, cartoon heroes for a nation too dead inside to care.
Bloated peddlers of death
Scary terrorists and endless wars are bread and butter for the “drugstore Marine” and “Hanoi John.”
You don’t know them by these names, the monikers they were tagged with by their fellow officers after Vietnam?
Carefully hear what they say, that pair of bloated peddlers of death.
Are they continually undermining America through the fear and mistrust their every word sews while they rake in millions?
Ngyuyen Thi Thuy Lieu kisses and hugs her daughter Ngyuyen Thi Trang Ngan as she feeds her lunch on their family bed at their home in Danang, Vietnam on Monday, May 21, 2007.
Ngyuyen Thi Thuy Lieu, who grew up next to the U.S. military base inside Denang airbase, has given birth to two children with physical and mental disabilities.
More than 30 years after the Vietnam War ended, the poisonous legacy of Agent Orange has emerged anew with a scientific study that has found extraordinarily high levels of health-threatening contamination at the former U.S. air base at Danang.
Why are men like this whose pasts reek of the worst abuses imaginable, allowed to dishonor our dead while strutting around playing hero?
Why has their real history been buried though the stench remains?
Vietnam had real heroes. They aren’t flying in private jets, eating at the finest restaurants, 58,000 of them came home dead, many in pieces, some burned to cinders.
It wasn’t just the 58,000 dead or the 50,000 soon to die or the maimed or damaged, the imprisoned or the endless thousands poisoned with Agent Orange.
Oh, did we tell you that Agent Orange may have killed more Vietnam veterans than total combat deaths in World War II?
According to Israeli officials, there are more holocaust survivors than living Vietnam veterans.
