If the devil existed or had a name I think he would be called simply Dow or Monsanto or many other corporations names.
The name Corporation itself seems to be quite malicious, greedily murderous and responsible for a lot of blood poured at times.
Union Carbide Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company.
Bhopal? remembered? Countless other class actions and lies and deception and blood curling profit schemes hidden in the pit of darkness somewhere.
But Dow has the double dubious honour of being
the "Creator" of Napalm AND Agent Orange. (Monsanto was also involved in Agent Orange)
It makes you want to boycott anything they ever touched and the list must be huge.
And a note should be given to DuPont and BASF as well.
BASF is cooperating with Monsanto Company in research, development and marketing of biotechnology
Monsanto is also the leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed; it provides the technology in 90% of the genetically engineered seeds used in the US market. It is headquartered in Creve Coeur, Missouri. I I
Isn't it Ironic? Dontcha think?
"Napalm is the most terrible pain you can imagine,"
said Kim Phúc, a napalm bombing survivor known from a
famous Vietnam War photograph.
"Water boils at 100 degrees Celsius (212°F). Napalm
generates temperatures of 800 (1,500°F) to 1,200 degrees
A US army source, talking about napalm, reported
‘We sure are pleased with those backroom boys at Dow. The original product wasn’t so hot - if the gooks were quick they could scrape it off. So the boys started adding polystyrene - now it sticks like shit to a blanket. But if the gooks jumped under water it stopped burning, so they started adding Willie Peter (white phosphorus) so’s to make it burn better. And just one drop is enough, it’ll keep on burning right down to the bone so they die anyway from phosphorus poisoning.’
International law does not prohibit the use of napalm or other incendiaries against military targets, but use against civilian populations was banned by the United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) in 1980. Protocol III of the CCW restricts the use of all incendiary weapons, but a number of states have not acceded to all of the protocols of the CCW. According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), states are considered a party to the convention, which entered into force as international law in December 1983, if they ratify at least two of the five protocols. TheUnited States, for example, is a party to the CCW but did not sign protocol III.

O Brave New World
How many goodly creatures are there here!
How beauteous mankind is!
O brave new world!
That has such people in it!
This line itself is ironic; Miranda was raised for most of her life on an isolated island, and the only people she ever knew were her father and his servants, an enslaved savage and a spirit. When she sees other people for the first time, she is understandably overcome with excitement, and utters, among other praise, the famous line above. However, what she is actually observing is not men acting in a refined or civilized manner, but rather drunken sailors staggering off the wreckage of their ship. Huxley employs the same irony when the "savage" John refers to what he sees as a "brave new world."
I think this is how it all started :) So much for the Xmas Spirit on Xmas Eve.
written yesterday or rather thought association put together roughly and typed
starting from the article in the Figaro and the trouble France is having with Turkey re the Armenian Genocide and then thinking of all the other genocides modern history and modern media so conveniently forget or ignore except ONE we keep hearing over and over and the only hate card and "hate" crime condemned... anyway the Vietnam bit was also interesting not mentioning Bosnia Rwanda and so many others
