"A New Zealand company at the centre of allegations it supplied Agent Orange chemicals during the Vietnam War said Monday the claims were false.
A government minister was quoted in a weekend newspaper as acknowledging Agent Orange ingredients, produced in New Zealand by chemical company Ivon Watkins Dow (now called Dow AgroSciences), were exported to a US military base in the Philippines during the Vietnam war."

Agent Orange is one of the most "VILE" things ever devised. The persons in the US that approved this insanity should be put on trial for crimes against humanity. The compamies that sold it should be driven from the face of the planet. DOW chemical is a real life "haliburton" that the LIbs all hate.

My girlfriend's father and 2 other men I know were all exposed to agent orange in Vietnam. Two of them have CLL and the other has colon cancer. The following is taken from the V.A.

"IOM Identifies Link with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Principi Extends Benefits"

On January 23, 2003, the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) officially released the fifth comprehensive report in a series entitled Veterans and Agent Orange.

The latest report findings are similar to the earlier documents with one major change. Update 2002 concludes that there is “sufficient evidence of an association” between herbicides used in Vietnam and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Anthony J. Principi has accepted this assessment, and ordered the development of regulations that would add CLL to the list of illnesses presumptively recognized for service connection among Vietnam veterans. VA will be able to begin paying compensation benefits once the regulations are finalized later this year.

Common sense could tell you that this stuff is no joke.

A maternal uncle of mine fought in Vietnam and was exposed to Agent Orange.

He died of colon cancer in 1985, a month before his 40th birthday.
