U.S. Targeted EU To Accept GM Foods

- Senior U.S. officials in Paris advised the George Bush administration to launch a military-style trade war against the European Union for resisting genetically modified foods, according to newly released WikiLeaks cables.

Well Monsanto I guess is putting their political contributions to good use. Being that Monsanto is only looking out for our best interests and not their bank account.

- The then U.S. ambassador to France, Craig Stapleton, asked the government to penalize the EU and particularly countries that banned the use of genetically modified (GM) crops.

-The move came in response to a 2007 French ban on a GM corn variety made by U.S.-based company Monsanto.

What, I can't believe this! A country having the right to say no something they do not want. How dare they stop this corporation from getting even richer and full of themselves.

-The Grocery Manufacturers Association estimates about 80 per cent of packaged foods sold in the U.S. and Canada contain GM food. Some animal studies have shown serious health risks, including infertility, accelerated aging, organ damage and birth defects, linked to such foods.

Hey maybe that is the reason why France does not want GM foods in their country. The do not want three armed kids or 20 year old citizens having to use walkers to get around. Hummm silly French people.

-Other newly released cables show U.S. diplomats around the world pushed GM crops as part of U.S. global food policy.

-For example, the U.S. applied pressure to the Pope's advisers to champion such crops to counter the opposition by many Catholic bishops in developing countries who were vehemently opposed to it.

Okay that does it...when the Catholic people are used to inspire developing countries to use GM crops the gloves come off. Now, if I was only able to get these gloves off with the two fingers I was born with.....

Jeffrey Smith, executive director of the Institute for Responsible Technology notes how he’s been saying for years that the United States government is joined at the hip with Monsanto, pushing GMOs as part of Monsanto’s agenda on the rest of the world.

“This lays bare,” notes Smith, “the mechanics of that effort. We have Craig Stapleton, the former ambassador to France, specifically asking the U.S. government to retaliate and cause some harm throughout the European Union. And then, two years later, in 2009, we have a cable from the ambassador to Spain from the United States asking for intervention there, asking the government to help formulate a biotech strategy and support the government—members of the government in Spain that want to promote GMOs, as well. And here, they specifically indicate that they sat with the director of Monsanto for the region and got briefed by him about the politics of the region and created strategies with him to promote the GMO agenda.”

Because of a lawsuit, 44,000 secret internal FDA memos revealed that that policy was a lie. “Not only were the scientists at the FDA aware that GMOs were different, they had warned repeatedly that they might create allergies, toxins, new diseases and nutritional problems. But they were ignored, and their warnings were even denied, and the policy went forth allowing the deployment GMOs into the food supply with virtually no safety studies.”
