Ilhan Omar was not hard enough in her comments.
Hamas and the Taliban didn’t use Agent Orange to destroy the soil of their enemies. Agent Orange was the chemical agent they used to kill all the crops in Vietnam. The US thought it was a great idea to try and starve the North Vietnamese people to death. Kids are still being born today with birth defects from it. Agent Orange was a highly toxic herbicide. The US did however nuke Japan twice and used depleted uranium to coat their weapons in Desert Storm. The most fucked up part is that to this day the US military still refuses to take care of its own soldiers who were exposed to it. The soldiers had no idea how toxic it was until many of their children were born with similar birth defects and the same types of cancer.
