Destructive criminal activity of "U.S.A." in Vietnam with defoliant Agent Orange
Between 1965 and 1970 "U.S.A." were spraying the highly toxic defoliant "Agent Orange" on broad territories over dense wild forest regions destroying the jungle. The idea was to destroy the natural roof of the enemy, the trees. These activities were performed not only in Vietnam, but also in Cambodia and in Laos.

After the "end of the war" - that means: after the official "end of Vietnam War" in 1975 the real damaging effect of this highly toxic and human destructing Agent Orange came up, and there are born deformed human beings until today (2013). Thus, Vietnam War has not ended, respectively one has to change one's mind thinking in a new way: With this dioxin in Agent Orange, Vietnam War NEVER ENDS:
Agent Orange victims in Vietnam are nursed in their families when this is possible, for example when there is a slight disability, or when there is a slight bodily damage. But other Agent Orange victims have to live in hospitals. And many of the latter cases are that heavy so the victims only can stay in the bed during day and night. This was the indication of staff of Tu Du Hospital (children's hospital) where live 50 Agent Orange victims, 20 of them only in the bed [web01].

Some Agent Orange victims are producing simple handicrafts selling it in a selling area in the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City. This big museum can be found at the corner of Le Qui Don Street with Vo Van Tan Street.

Sign with contact address and telephone numbers concerning the organization of Agent Orange victims
This selling area of Agent Orange victims is run by victims who can walk well, but the victims are suffering microsomia.
At the wall in the background there is a signpost with a contact address and with telephone numbers. Unfortunately the address is only in Vietnamese and not in English, and also a web site and an e-mail are missing.
The address is the following:
AN PHUC CHARITY THANH PHO HO CHI MINH - VIET NAM
134/10 LK4-5, KP.4, P.BINH HUNG HOA B, Q. BINH TAN
The telephone numbers are:
DT: 08.6678.6131 - 0987.539.100 - 0973.550.377 - 0979.747.561
When in March 2013 I visited the War Remnants Museum in HCMC the first time, there were three Agent Orange victims present. But the position of this selling area is very at the margin, so the big majority of the visitors is simply not seeing it. When one is not asking for it, one is walking in the museum and never seeing this selling area. And when one wants to visit the selling area at the end of the visit of the museum there will be the museum's "closing time" and there will not be any time left for any talk or purchase at this stall..

In this case the Agent Orange victims have specialized in producing handicrafts of glass beads, in form of handbags, money bags, or armlets or animal figures. Other victims have specialized in painting or writing on wooden medallions as souvenirs.

Now it is like this: Every Saturday and Sunday there is a bigger group of Agent Orange victims in the War Remnants Museum present showing also cases in the wheel chair without any walking ability.

In this group of a Saturday also were two wheel chair cases with crippled grown arms and legs. The assistance indicated that to these persons a peace of the upper bone would miss and the arms could only be moved with the muscles.
Add to this the crippled legs provoked an absolute inability for walking, and therefore the Agent Orange victim on the following photo depends on a comprehensive assistance. But his mental capacity and his language abilities were 100%, and this man also could speak English.

Moreover there are photos in the Internet showing Agent Orange victims without eyes. And on this Saturday I could detect that just the pianist had no eyes.

Solidarity and no solidarity - Vietnam War NEVER ENDS
Among the Agent Orange victims there is a 100% solidarity. Everybody is helping to everybody with it's skills. And one has to know that Many Agent Orange victims have died already during their childhood or during their youth, and the graves are uncounted. Add to this many Agent Orange victims are not registered until today because they are nursed clandestinely in the huts in the countryside and the state does not know anything about it. In the countryside the shame to have a handicapped child is bigger than the plead for help.
So, and now there are the producers of this Agent Orange which was used during Vietnam War leaving a huge amount of genetic damage in the population of Vietnam. These sinners are "U.S.A." and Germany where the dioxin was produced in the Boehringer company with a leader called Mr. von Weizsäcker. These sinners are NOT helping ANYTHING until today (2013). It seems that both governments of "U.S.A." and of Germany are afraid to see the damage they have caused in Vietnam War which is lasting until today. Because dioxin is having it´s damaging effect UNTIL TODAY (2013).
Boehringer Company in Ingelheim (Germany) was producing the dioxin which was shipped to Vietnam directly for being added to Agent Orange by "U.S." military forces [web02]
Vietnam War NEVER ENDS.
Also the jungle remains destroyed being sprayed by Agent Orange with dioxin
And this destructive effect also counts for the destroyed jungle of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, where is hardly growing anything in the destructed zones, but landslides are destroying the landscape more and more [web03].
Vietnam War NEVER ENDS
We can conclude: The official end of the war of 1975 is a giant lie because with the chemical effect of Agent Orange this Vietnam War NEVER ENDS. Can criminal "U.S.A." and Germany be aware of that? Where are the state visits? Where are the Ministers of Foreign Affairs? Where are the foundations? Where is solidarity? Where for example is Bill Gates? Where is a German pair of Ministers? Until now unfortunately nowhere...
Compensation was given to the victims from "U.S.A." and from the German side: 0 dollars.
Estimations claim that there are up to 3 million Agent Orange victims to deplore until today (2013) [web04].
And with this kind of warfare with genetic manipulative weapons there were also other wars, not with Agent Orange, but with "American" Uranium bombs in Iraq, in Fallujah. Therefore also Iraq War NEVER ENDS...
