During the Vietnam War, more than 11.4 million gallons of Agent Orange were used. About 8 million gallons of Agent White, Blue, Purple, Pink and Green were also sprayed. The goal was to defoliate rural/forested land, depriving guerrillas of food and cover and clearing in sensitive areas such as around base perimeters. The program was also a part of a general policy of forced draft urbanization, which aimed to destroy the ability of peasants to support themselves in the countryside, forcing them to flee to the U.S. dominated cities, depriving the guerrillas of their rural support base. The Vietnam Red Cross reported as many as 3 million Vietnamese people have been affected by Agent Orange, including at least 150,000 children born with birth defects. According to Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 4.8 million Vietnamese people were exposed to Agent Orange, resulting in 400,000 people being killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born with birth defects.

الصومال: سنوات من الحروب و المجاعات Mogadishu, #Somalia: A one-legged boy stands with his crutches and watches American soldiers patrol along the Green Line, which was a heavily contested area during the civil war. In the 1980s a civil war erupted in Somalia when warlord factions joined together to overthrow then president Siad Barre, who finally lost power in 1991. Since then power struggles between warlords have ravaged the country with famine and violence. US and international troops entered Somalia to provide aid and presence as part of “Operation Restore Hope” in December of 1992. © Peter Turnley
