The Children of Agent Orange

These pictures are not too pleasant and could be difficult to some viewers. They are the gifts from the Americans to Vietnam. 40 years after Agent Orange is a programme screened recently on CNA. It is a very painful story of what the Americans did to Vietnam during the Vietnam War. 1/5 of South Vietnam was sprayed with Dioxin or Agent Orange which it was harmlessly called. It was pushed around as a pesticide, to deforest the jungles of Vietnam, to destroy the natural shelters protecting the Vietcongs in their struggle against an occupying foreign military force. There was no concern about the long term effects of Dioxin on the flora and fauna of the country, to the people who are living there.

By the time the war was over, over 300,000 American soldiers and dependents were struck by Agent Orange, living in America. In Vietnam, over 500,000 births with defects were reported. Many more went unreported, either dead at birth, or went underground as the family will suffer a social stigma for having a member inflicted by the sickness. It means that the whole family is condemned as the Dioxin will stay in the genes, maybe mutated, and could appear in any of the offsprings for generations to come.

There were hardly any compensations for the Vietnamese victims of Agent Orange. The audacity of the US Supreme Court ruled that the pesticide was meant to destroy foliage, not humans, and humans so affected were not intended. They had not invented the words collateral damages yet. Monsanto, the company that produced the Agent Orange only paid compensations to the American victims. The Americans too suffered many birth defects from the Dioxin, by soldiers who served in the war, who either sprayed the Dioxin across the countryside, or friendly soldiers on the ground being sprayed.

The children of Agent Orange are still alive, kicking, and many will continue to be born that way, looking like anything except normal human beans.

Thank you America. You are so kind, so humane, so generous.

Right, and when the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, BP was ordered to pay billions for the clean up..

What double standard..and yet we want them here in Singapore.

The white man only use chemical and nuclear weapon to yellow people. We got to be clear on this. Nazi Germany, USSR, USA, UK despite having large stockpile of chemical weapon in WW2, did not unleash a single drop on one another.

UK and Nazi Germany even have a tacit mutual agreement. You dont bomb Cambridge, I dont bomb Gottingen.

Would Harry Trumen use Atomic bombs on Germany? I doubt so. I believe USA deliberately bomb Hiroshima to kill as much Japanese as possible. They deliberately? miss the city center somehow on Nagasaki (Is it because USA elites got somewhat stricken with guilt?)

Nagasaki Bomb would not have miss as USA control Japanese airspace then.

If USA really want to cow Japanese into surrender, she could simply drop one or 2 bomb in forest of Aomori, or Ishikawa, I believe Japanese leader will "get it".

This is simply racism.

I believe the future of yellow people, that includes SE Asian, NE Asian and northern Asian, Tibetan depends on the future of PRC.

I hope PRC will become a beacon of all civilization even though it is now still lack of moral supremacy.

The yellow people share strangely certain core sets of values even though they are from different culture. Burmese, Thai, Chinese and Pinoys, are so similar that they move into one another's society without much problem. Even Islamic Malay/Indon allow Chinese to move to the upper class.

The yellow people are not able to move to the top in western, Hindic or Arabo-Islamic society. In white man land, yellow are being deem social outcast and nerd. A black that has inferior IQ or academic qualification can move further in whitemanland than yellow.

In defence of USA.
At least you have free access to these photos.
And can write about them without worrying about detention without trial.
Where were you when Francis Seow and Tan Liang Hong got arrested?

The American system has more liberty than any system of government created and led by the Chinese. Sad to say.
Including the Singapore system.

the key question is;
are you better off as a first class citizen in Singapore or China
a 2nd class citizen in USA?

Now, its better to be even a 4th class citizen in USA than in China or Singapore. It is better to be USA client state like Singapore rather than PRC client state like N Korea. I have very few good things to say about PRC and most of my comments towards PRC are negative.

That does not change the fact the PRC is eventually going to the ultimate protector in the future.

Very few people knows racism and civilization plays a great part in dynamics of real world. PAP brought in FT Indians, and evidence has manifest that they are hell bent of taking over Singapore base on racism and exploitation.

The white man use to exploit Africa and support different sides of arm militias to conduct abuses and even genocide. The rise of PRC actually create a more peaceful Africa because African are now able to play off the Ang Mohs. PRC is also willing to pay fair price for African natural resources. Ang Moh will manipulate the price down.

And few knows actually the rise of PRC no matter how malicious its policies actually make the white man treat yellow more respect. 100 years ago, whiteman can come here anytime they like, with warship and take any our wealth and woman.

But today, they are not able to. There are different forces that small periphery yellow states can play off white man. PRC is the single greatest force.

I am not so concern about white man, as they allow their minority to survive on the very least. The Hindic civilization is the most noxious. It must not be allowed anywhere outside India. Indian can shit on themselves in India. That I don care.

PAP has not studied history

More than 35 years after the Americans left Vietnam, the harm and pain they caused to the Vietnamese are still living to remind the world of what evil the Americans had done to that country and people.

And more painful, the children of agent orange will continue to be born, in Vietnam and in the US.

Politics and schemes are far

If one cannot see white men's hypocrisy, then one is either blind or looking at the world with tinted glasses.

Using an atomic weapon, you really cannot miss, because either the target is vaporised or they suffer the effect of the nuclear fallout, which is a slower and more painful death. The result is the same.

I am very frank on the virtue of white man and their vices. I am honest on race. To understand white-man, you have to know that they treat their citizen very well, especially the northern white man. This is alot to do with Roman culture. Roman citizens are entitled to free food. This is not unlike social security model of today. Later then Germanic white-man and Slavic whiteman inherit this culture on different extend.

Apostle Paul in Bible often write about the privilege he has as a citizen of Rome. The Whitemanland fragmented into different states, although.

The whiteman is extremely wicked to its enemy and can be extremely extractive to its client state. So it is not ilogical that whiteman use nuke the japs and try plundering Arabland.

We can call it whiteman hypocrisy but that is their 3000 years of custom. At the very least, whiteman can be fairly good to their conquered subjects, although not without some discrimination and although the process of conquest can be extremely bloody.

Look at USA conquest of Japan, USA of Germany. USA treats their subjects quite well. But USA conquer of Japan is extremely cruel. Even USA treats Puerto Rico mix-blood, Hawaii yellow well. Around 1/3 of French social security went to its oversea territory in Pacific which are mostly Malay.

And also the yellow people in USSR. The USSR treats the Mongolian Tuvan, and the yellow of Siberia reasonably now. But in the process of Russian conquest, cannibalism and killing of all man and taking all woman folks in harem is very common.

The sinitic culture expands in a more humane way.

The worst is the Hindic culture. After 3000-4000 years of conquest, the northern Dravidians are still enslaved by the Brahmin working as shit collectors and hereditary prostitute.

But funny thing may happen when the core state goes bankrupt. When Rome go bankrupt, she is extremely extractive to her peripheral province. USA could be in the process now. And actually the periphery state of USA especially Arabland has been subsidizing USA by giving petrol quasi-freely. (read about petro-dollar). And whiteman suppression of rebellious client state can be harsh. But when its citizen wants to secede, depends on circumstances, whiteman elite may accede.

We cannot deny racism. We need to understand salient racial characteristic of every race and not to be fooled by the "politically correct racial theory".

Every state of USA does not belong to white men. They robbed them by force. Period.

I respect your opinion.

But in many of the opinion of intellect especially those in HK and Taiwan, Whiteman conquer of HK and Shanghai, though a humiliation for China, actually lead to progress. Eventually China stop crippling its women's leg. Taiwan adopted democracy. HK become the most prosperous place in the whole world.

Whiteman conquest of Indonesia, Malayland actually eradicate head hunting. Until very recently Batak at Toba and Malay at Tanah Torajah are head hunters. (Actually I suspect all Malay tribes practice head hunting in the past)

Whiteman stop Japan imperialism. Whiteman save Korea from communist. Whiteman save Taiwan from communist.

Whiteman eradicate sutee, the widow burning in India, the most barbaric practice that a civilize world could ever imagine.

Whiteman conquest of S America eradicate human sacrifice. Aztec and Incas are the worst human sacrifice race in the whole universe.

I am not whiteman are everything good, but we must repent the sin of our race at well.

The vietnam war escalate because of stupidity of Ngo Dinh Diem. If he do a land reform like Rhee Synman did in S korea, all communist guerilla will disappear overnight. Vietnam will be democratic today. It will not be conquered. I am not saying USA use of Agent orange is right. But the wickedness of landlordism in sinitic culture cannot be under-estimate as well.

War is like that what you expect? War is cruel and unfair. It destroys, kills and makes many suffered. What people need to learn is to prevent the third world war from happening. US is having a difficult time to ensure that it does not happen cos many people seems to be affected by propaganda that US is an evil empire. US is not perfect but I doubt any other country can do a better job.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Hi auto, you really believe that the USA is trying to prevent it from happening what it already happened? Every war that is being fought now, the US is fighting and the cause of it. And they are trying to stir up new wars in East and Southeast Asia.

The USA is the major cause of all the wars today and the main combatants.
