I had to admit, when I first heard of this, I was a bit skeptical, so I decided to do a bit of snooping. Were my eyes deceiving me? Apparently not, for according to the US Federal Register, Dow AgroScience LLC is asking the US government to allow the introduction of the genetically engineered corn said to be resistant to the Agent Orange ingredient 2,4-D- Agent Orange, remember that?
Now, this strikes me as very risky at best, and loathsome at worst. If the corn is genetically resistant to this compound, that could mean that it simply gets stored in the kernels and transmitted to human beings who would then ingest the chemical. As the second article points out, this agent "bioaccumulates" as it is transmitted higher and higher in the food chain. The disturbing thing is that the use of Agent Orange - which included about 50% of 2,4-D according to some sources - resulted in birth defects in Vietnamese children, including deformities, neurological disorders, and so on. Granted, the Federal Register does not specifically state that they want to spray Agent Orange on corn crops, but one does have to wonder how they are going to test their corn in a natural environment without doing so. Surely no one would be that insane.
Which leads to a more important question that needs to be asked here: why would anyone develope a corn plant resistant to this agent? Is someone expecting corn crops to be dusted by attacks from someone using Agent Orange? In other words, is this in response to intelligence source picking up threats that they have not informed us about? Is it perhaps simply the kind of contingency planning one gets with such large corporations in league with the military and its black projects? To me, this last possibility seems to be the most logical explanation, namely, that it is contingency planning of some sort, to secure the American food supply in the face of some unknown external chemical warfare threat, and hence, I am somewhat skeptical of rumors associated with this story that "they" are planning Agent Orange spraying of American crops, but this notice in the Federal Register does give me pause, for all the above-stated reasons and questions.
The bottom line: The development of such a corn against such an herbicide or defoliant suggests to me that someone in the military-industrial complex has either had a credible threat of this nature, or that it is developing GMOs, not in some insidious plot to poison humanity (always a possibility given the nutcases one finds in the elites of the world), but rather, in response to long-range contengency and continuity of government planning and operations. Either way, it should give one pause.
