Americans and their Justice

Justice system and human-rights system of developed nations is skewed, how much, lets see.
Americans used agent orange on Vietnam which resulted in millions of deaths, disabilities, and affected several generations, despite extremely harsh social and economical difficulties of local population. That also affected American soldiers who were involved in the alleged use of the chemical weapon.
The American soldiers and their families sued their government and the civilian companies involved in production and use of the agent orange. This resulted in about 127 million US dollars as compensations.
Koreans were also affected as some of the chemical was stored there. They also sued and they got 62 million dollars in compensation.
All the above happened in a developed nation and between two such nations. Now lets see what happens when it comes to the undeveloped nation.
Victims of agent orange in Vietnam also placed a lawsuit in American courts and they got nothing. Though they got a few million dollars in aid which was divided in several parts and a considerable part of which went back to America as compensation of the aid workers. And it was considered a great generosity of Americans for helping poor nations.

    This is not one time in American history. Their history is full of such . Look at the attacks on Iraq and the recent WMD campaign in Iraq.
