Book Ghost Platoon, Dioxin is a killer

Regarding A statement by Jim Riddle in the book Ghost Platoon:
We all died in that war only difference is it’s taken us longer to stop breathing which one veteran believes he was referring to Agent Orange, would be a reasonable assumption; and sadly a profound but true observation by Jim.

Dioxin is a killer “period” and Governmental attempt to sanitize this fact is straight out B.S. and I wouldn’t fertilize my gardens with it Folks.

The NZ Government where party to the knowledge of what IWD was producing and what was being shipped; and it was thousands of liters to American Staging grounds to on ship to Vietnam.

Goodness the CEO of IWD at that time came forward 30 years later and admitted they were manufacturing Agent Orange for the War. In addition, surplus drums of this toxic poison was buried in the earth of New Plymouth.

IWD poisoned a whole community of people who resided or daily worked in proximity to the IWD plant from the early 60’s to 1988.

April 1986: after the bursting disc failure resulted in IWD having to substantiate the figures of the volumes of raw dioxin emitted in the incident, IWD choose the option to cease manufacture and never provided and evidences to back their claims of the little volume they said was emitted.

Smells like more B.S. and covering of dirty footprints to me.bs_smell

To this day the NZ Government health system will not acknowledge the real list of health effects caused by exposure to dioxin, nor will its insurer ACC; nor will they accept out of IWD Plant claims for work related exposure to workers whom worked in close proximity.   Well not yet but that’s being worked on.

New Plymouth Civilians and Vietnam Veterans alike have experiences:

“Justice and Fairness have absolutely no correlation to politics or Commerce”, nor is the Law bent on Justice and Fairness it is wired for the Rich and Powerful to manipulate coerce and press down any contender whom campaigns against their unjust and corrupt practices.

Whatever ideals or fantasies we held from childhood about the Law and

Order and Justice and Fairness quickly has its bubble burst when one wages war against these perpetrators?
