Agent Orange in Vietnam

The War of Vietnam (1964-1975) was a warlike conflict that during part of the Cold War faced South Vietnam, supported principally by the United States, against North Vietnam, supported by the communist block.

The war of Vietnam remained marked in history as the first defeat in the military history of the United States and for the high number of dead men.

The USA decided to spray the whole country with the called Orange Agent, a strong chemical product that destroys the nature. With the aim to facilitate the combat in the jungle and to end with the food of the enemies.

This so serious mistake has had serious consequences for the population of vietnam that have serious problems of health and malformations.
