For 4 decades Monsanto has been poisoning this town (and others) with a poison so serious, even their own scientists note it as “100% kill.” Nope, it’s not Roundup and it’s not Agent Orange. Meet Monsanto’s poison that you might never hear about again after this Congress wipes the slate clean.
Monsanto was also once the exclusive provider of white phosphorous to the U.S. government. Although it’s use is not always a war crime, the Pentagon has sold the deadly substance to governments, including Israel, that have used it in ways that violate international law. Antiwar.com’s Jason Ditz told us,
The use of white phosphorus is not in and of itself a war crime, and is generally considered acceptable as a means of obscuring troop movements or illuminating areas. Its use in civilian areas however, even if not directed at the civilian population, is banned under the Geneva Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons.
