Monsanto, who has a previous history with dealing with chemicals way before they were in the food industry, has once again been found providing chemical warfare to Israeli and US militaries. This chemical, white phosphorus, can be potentially fatal and is a dirty way to fight.
Recently declassified documents reveal that Monsanto has provided both the Israeli and US militaries with white phosphorus as early as 2009. White phosphorus is a chemical weapon, which burns through nearly any surface and creates large clouds of toxic smoke.
Exposure to this chemical can be potentially fatal or debilitating, but sadly it is not recognized legally as a chemical weapon, and thus is perfectly legal for Western governments to use against the inhabitants of poor developing countries.
Documents released in 2012 by the US Federal Business Opportunities, and recently published by the website Current Events Inquiry, shows that Monsanto provided the Israeli military with 180,000 pounds of white phosphorous which was used on Palestinians in Gaza in 2008 and 2009.
The document also stated that “The Government is aware of only one source, Monsanto, who currently manufactures WP in the US.”
Monsanto has a very nasty history before they were in the food industry they primarily dealt with chemicals. Since the beginning of the 20th century, they were responsible for the manufacture of various toxic chemicals, which includes anything from caffeine to Agent Orange, along with other dangerous pesticides and herbicides. Monsanto even helped develop uranium for the atomic bomb in the Manhattan Project. Their chemical Roundup has been known to cause dozens of different plant diseases and does unknown damage to the ecosystem, just as their other pesticides do.
