Laos Deadly Legacy - The Forgotten Secret War UXOs Bombies Part 1-4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XB9oXpN2OwgA documentary on the problem of unexploded bombs in the landlocked Southeast Asian country of Laos. Unexploded bombs or UXOs are killing more people today in Laos than that it did at the height of the Indo-China/Vietnam conflict when Laos was used as a secret base for the American military during the 1970s. The film looks at how this deadly legacy from the Vietnam war is depriving rural Laotians a livelihood and other opportunities as the land is too dangerous to farm or develop. The documentary also covers the work of the Mines Advsiory Group and reports on how its deminers are trying to decontaiminate the land of UXOs, landmines and even experimental bombs that were found to be used during the Vietnam War.Lastly, the film covers the public awareness campaign about UXOs so that the Lao people know how to identify UXO and what to do when they come across unexploded bombs
It's great that you are bringing attention to this issue, salutations and thank you. Yes, the kissinger, ford, nixon, lbj clandestine campaign of carpet bombing Laos and Cambodia, along with other countries not even involved in the Vietnam conflict continues to be a huge burden on it's population. Aided and abetted by corporations, such as Honeywell, who manufactured such faulty ied devices 80% of them never exploded, killing men, women and children to this day. In my research I found an amazing way to help eradicate this problem, there is a certain type of moss that can be planted in areas that detect mines underground, the plant turns yellow when it detects the metals from the bomb. Small, simple solution but noone cares enough around the world to implement these measures. Once again thank you for bringing light to this issue. AkhaldanSolo
Oops, the technology is based on genetic engineering of the plant Thale Cress, which turns red within 3-4 was of exposure to an incendiary device.Land-mine detecting Plants createdhttp://www.gizmag.com/go/2568/Solo
Thank you, that was interesting about the plants. I never thought I would approve of GMO's. Kaivey.
I start each day with Icke's Headlines page and, ahem, aangirfan. Say what you want about Icke, he's got perfect pitch in anaylzing the Big Planetary Picture (whether you go off world with him or not). Trump in Dresden would be most interesting.
Sarah Palin Is On Donald Trump’s VP Short List Says Ben Carson http://www.inquisitr.com/3100017/sarah-palin-is-on-donald-trumps-vp-short-list-says-ben-carson/May 15, 2016Patricia RamirezAccording to ousted Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson, Donald Trump is considering Sarah Palin as his presidential running mate. Ever since Ted Cruz’s humiliating concession speech, rumors have been circulating regarding whose name would be added to the presumptive GOP nominee’s ticket. Trump, however, has remained quiet on the matter. Carson has reportedly been aiding the former reality TV star in his unlikely search for a vice president, and The Washington Post reports that he may have let the cat out of the bag.Carson was reportedly riding with a reporter on the way to a televised interview the possibility of a Donald Trump/Sarah Palin presidential ticket was revealed. He’d told the reporter that he didn’t want to be Trump’s second-in-command, despite having just heard about a recent poll that indicated that he was the “best liked” among The Donald’s potential VP’s.When he heard the news, he asked the reporter who else was on the “liked” list. The reporter told him that after himself, the “best liked” Trump-ticket vice presidential candidates were John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin and Chris Christie.
