Agent Orange (AO) often called the "last regacy" of the United States war in Vietnam (1955-1975), has popped up again thanks to its manufacturer Daw Chemical's controversial sponcership of the Olympic Games.

Nguyen Van Rinh, a retired general and head of the Vietnam Association of Victims of Agent Orange...said, it was still “mostly words” and that “these behaviours constitute only a small effort and are very far from what they should be doing.”

Dow's Olympic funds should have been used for their debt in India first........

I'd really like to request the site management to require a profile photo to be shown by every member. If someone doesn't want to put his/her own photo, then at least he/she can choose a photo of an animal, a message banner, etc. We NEED some improvement on this issue of illegal ads and irritating spams !

You mean The CORPORATE O£ymipic$?? Who use athletes to push their products. Sorry, am not into making them any more powerful.
Don't know if the news concerning the protests or the arrests of cyclists on Friday night has made global news, but these stories along with the news of empty seats (allocated to corp sponsors) at venues can be found on the BBC website.

Attention spammers- I have come to realise your attention span must be very short & your IQ isn't high enough to understand you are mocked & detested. Do us all a favour, go away... far, far away. Is that simple enough English for you to understand?/ sarcasm

And also remember Bhopal's disaster from Dow's manufacturing--that remains without Dow having provided restitution yet
