At least these companies should acknowledge the part they did play in what people are too afraid to label -- genocide.

Len Aldis, founder of the UK-Vietnam Friendship Association, who has contributed a large amount of his own funds and time in support of the effort to clean up Agent Orange in Vietnam, does level sincere blame on the heads of Monsanto and Dow Chemicals. In a letter addressed to Monsanto's Board of Directors, Mr. Aldis writes: "You may not be aware of the part played by your company in this criminal act, but there have been many protests here in the UK and many other countries at the use of Agent Orange on Vietnam... I have seen the results of your product in jars containing unborn babies, a sight not many people could stomach seeing."

To this date, Mr. Aldis has received no reply, a stance that is upheld on Monsanto and Dow Chemicals' websites. These URLs make no mention of Agent Orange, by name, by policy change, etc. If they are content to sweep this product under the rug, how can they be trusted today, as they produce genetically-enhanced seeds, herbicides, and other product lines? What impetus is there to thoroughly test these lab-controlled mutations?

When we play with a fire that has already burnt us, can we expect anything less than to be burnt again?
