Vietnam’s forgotten victims Four decades on, Agent Orange continues to ravage the children of those exposed.

To this day, Tran weeps over the memories of bloodshed and the hellish cries of his dying friends. But one bizarre memory will haunt him forever. "The American airplanes came right toward me and dropped a mist in the jungle, and the next day, the trees were dead," he recalled. "We weren't scared. We were confused."

Thanks to that experience, his son has been unable to walk since birth.

The U.S. government insists the direct spraying of Agent Orange onto people — like in Tran's case — cannot be linked to any illnesses in Vietnam.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The consistency with which the US has lied about this issue through the decades since the Viet Nam War is a catastrophic moral failure on the part of this government.
