Talk:Agent Orange

POV[edit]

"this voids any protection of any military or civilians from a napalm attack or something like agent Orange and is clear that it was designed to cover situations like U.S. tactics in Vietnam. This clause has yet to be revised."

I don't have an opinion on the topic, but whomever edited/authored it clearly does.

"and is clear that it was designed to cover..." seems to establish a point of view for the article. If this is important to keep in, perhaps consider stating in the article whatever authority that believes this is "clear". It seems important enough to be included in the text.


"or something like"?

Thats just sloppy.

This article has some extreme vandalism. "The scientific data supporting a causal link between Agent Orange/dioxin exposure and birth defects is controversial and weak"? Wiki mods/admins need to keep the U.S. fascism under control instead of letting them erase hundreds of thousands of maimed victims from history. Chemical warfare breaks international law by the way. Wikipedia is payed for by the proletariat. So don't let corporations completely censor articles. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Agent_Orange&oldid=468163158 The original article on Agent Orange is completely censored. Whoever is responsible needs to lose edit privileges over this page. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.193.176.40 (talk) 21:07, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

I am sure you are mistaken; two of the pages are marked as © 2016 Arizona Board of Regents and © 2017 Bell Media All rights reserved. The third page does not have a copyright notice, but under current copyright law, literary works are subject to copyright whether they are tagged as such or not. No registration is required, and no copyright notice is required. So please always assume that all material you find online is copyright. Exceptions include works of the US Government and material specifically released under license. Even then, proper attribution is required. The page will be assessed and resolved in about a week by an administrator or copyright problems clerk and the template will be removed at that time. — Diannaa 🍁 (talk) 22:31, 28 February 2017 (UTC)
