America guilty of double standard

The US government is demanding that BP compensate every individual who suffers as a result of oil pollution created by that company.

This is right. It is also right that every present and future sufferer from Agent Orange in Vietnam and depleted uranium shell fragments in Iraq is compensated by the US government.

I wait for all those in America who are demanding justice for the American victims of BP to also demand justice for the victims of far more dangerous pollution in Vietnam and Iraq that was caused by the American military on the orders of two American governments.
