History is the enemy as 'brilliant' psy-ops become the news

• http://www.johnpilger.com

Today, at the Tu Du paediatrics hospital in Saigon, a former operating theatre is known as the "collection room" and, unofficially, as the "room of horrors". It has shelves of large bottles containing grotesque foetuses. During its invasion of Vietnam, the United States sprayed a defoliant herbicide on vegetation and villages to deny "cover to the enemy". This was Agent Orange, which contained dioxin, poisons of such power that they cause foetal death, miscarriage, chromosomal damage and cancer.

In 1970, a US Senate report revealed that "the US has dumped [on South Vietnam] a quantity of toxic chemical amounting to six pounds per head of population, including woman and children". The code-name for this weapon of mass destruction, Operation Hades, was changed to the friendlier Operation Ranch Hand. Today, an estimated 4.8 million victims of Agent Orange are children.

Len Aldis, secretary of the Britain-Vietnam Friendship Society, recently returned from Vietnam with a letter for the International Olympic Committee from the Vietnam Women's Union. The union's president, Nguyen Thi Thanh Hoa, described "the severe congenital deformities [caused by Agent Orange] from generation to generation". She asked the IOC to reconsider its decision to accept sponsorship of the London Olympics from the Dow Chemical Corporation, which was one of the companies that manufactured the poison and has refused to compensate its victims.

Saigon is only the place where we can get a view of things. Saigon is Viet Nam War. Yet, Agent Orange and its precursors were being used in the Korean War. Search the Net. Korean War vets are showing up in droves with Agent Orange attributed health problems.

Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if some form of Agent Orange was used on Germany in WWII. A lot of us shouldn't be surprised if we found that it wasn't the Germans that did the Holocaust, but rather the Allies using some form of what would later become Agent Orange.

"How much longer must we subject ourselves to such an "invisible government"? -- Good question, and I doubt any of us reading that question will ever find out. Those that are the "invisible government" are bent on making sure you and I don't live out the full lenght of our days. The way that they are killing you and me is by what is called "slow kill". Poison in the skies, poison in the foods we are allowed to eat, poison in the drinking water called Flouride, and so on. There are so many ways that to list them would take up to much of yours and my time. But you know it is happening. Oh, and don't forget the biggest one going on right now. That nuclear problem in Japan. That poison has covered the earth a couple of times over or more.
