Agent Orange

Thesis Statement

    From 1962 to 1971 the United States military sprayed 20,000,000 gallons of an herbicide known as Agent Orange across Vietnam. On March 1st, 2005 the Vietnamese government made a diplomatic push against the United States to make it a war crime. The Vietnamese tried to make it a war crime because of the effects it had on the environment and the soldiers, but failed because it was used to save the lives of American soldiers and was never intended to land on Vietnamese soldiers.
