Vietnamese Outrage as Agent Orange Lawsuit Thrown Out

"The Vietnam War ended nearly 30 years ago, but there was renewed bitterness on the streets of Hanoi Friday after a United States judge threw out a lawsuit by Vietnamese who claim they are victims of the Agent Orange chemical sprayed during what people here call the American War."

"Eighty-six-year-old Nguyen Mai, a retired government official, says human morality teaches us that those who commit crimes have to take responsibility. Therefore, he says, the United States has to compensate generations of Vietnamese suffering the effects of Agent Orange."
