Alternatives for an 'Agent Orange' and Dioxin Community of Interest

A few days ago, the NGO Resource Centre limited the Agent Orange Working Group mailing list to NGO activities in Viet Nam. I lobbied for that. But they haven't moved beyond that in identifying alternative venues for activists and others who are not part of that community. I think they are waiting for us.
Chuck's Chapter 160 network may be another good way to learn about ourselves.


We have already identified some strong groupings, which can achieve…

return VN Sept 2011

Now I found the proper place and will join the 21st century with my first blog. Spoke with Woody Powell and Paul Cox about the idea of bringing 20 or so VFPers to VN Sept 2011. Each person would be asked to raise $1,000. Chuck S and Chuck P, I'm volunteering for you guys, and I can help create a unique trip and the money would be donated to grass roots causes in the southen sector of VN. I suggest mostly in the Quang Tri area because of its deep poverty, the scars from the war and because… Continue

Maybe I haven't joined the 21st century because I couldn't place this blog. Will try again. Spoke with woody Powell, George Johnson and Paul Cox about bringing 20 or so VFPers to VN Sept 2011. Each thought it was a good idea and want to hear more.



The idea is to have each person raise $1,000. This would give people one year to raise the money and would give us time to plan the trip. Maybe we could get some good press, if there is a press left in America, about vets working with the… Continue

Agent Orange Working Group

Hi everyone,


I'm still not ready, but I have done some things on the Agent Orange Working Group, which was getting very far afield from the main topic. As most of you know, AOWG belongs to the the NGO Resource Centre in Ha Noi. For a long time now, VVAF, the NGO which is supposed to lead things, has been totally silent. Members get almost no information about AO-related activities. And they have been complaining. I'm at fault for encouraging Debra Kraus to stay on - she…

The Hypocrisy of a Killer



Hypocrisy is defined as “the act of persistently professing beliefs, opinions, virtues, feelings, qualities, or standards that are inconsistent with one’s actions. Hypocrisy is thus a lie”.

Rules of Engagement or Murder?

I say murder - listening to the small talk of the pilot and crew, actually hearing them laugh when they were killing and then when the ground vehicle ran over one of the victims, seeing via the video, what they actually saw, I cannot defend the actions of this Apache crew nor their Officer in Charge who casually, but with earnest, gave the order to engage - I believe, with today's technology, the Officer in Charge, actually had the ability to see, in real-time, what the pilot and crew were… Continue
