  • Tactic used in Vietnam could be used against our Gardens

    Posted by Susquehanna-Homestead on February 8, 2023 at 9:40 pm

    During the Vietnam war, the U.S. military sprayed herbicides from airplanes both to expose Vietcong hiding places and to destroy crops in an attempt to starve them out. Now, we all know that the government is opposed to our ability to grow our own food, and I bet they would use this tactic against us as freedom loving individuals. I would imagine that greenhouse and high tunnel crops might be protected from this, and this is just another reason why we as gardeners should be moving our efforts towards growing under cover. Again, I can see the government doing this because it can destroy our self-sufficiently without a bomb being dropped or a rifle fired. What are your thoughts about this?

    OMG, I never thought of that. You raise a good point. And the govt/big corporations could possibly use drones (which weren’t around in the viet nam war).
    Maybe drones can be kept away by netting stretched across the garden plot, such as the nets used for keeping birds off your fruit trees and berry bushes? but as for the covering against a windborne powder and such… Ya, I think your idea of the plastic coops or greenhouses is best.
    A walipini is what I want… i think any way the base is, whether coop hoops or walls etc, the plastic might need to be such that you can fold or roll it back to allow for rain or warmth or sunshine…. Maybe keep the plastic on most of the time and just roll it back on random days? somehow have to allow pollinators to get in there and do their work. If the plastic isn’t all the way down to the ground, but more like a roof, would the pollinators find their way to the plants?

    I think that is a VERY valid point. I will say this though, with the vast expanses that is the US, I would guess they would go after larger plots of land (like farms) first. Only “Government approved farms would be spared. Though that also means, we would probably have a pretty good advance notice if they started doing it. The other thing is, we are primarily growing annuals so they would have to do it over and over every year, unless they come up with a solution to poison the soil altogether which completely goes against their narrative of letting nature go back to being nature.

      Glyphosates stay in the soil for several years. If the dead plants are left in place then their decay just flushes what they contain back into the soil.

      One spraying might damage a plot for 3, 4 or more years.

        A lot of herbicides have strong warnings on their labels saying to keep them away from bodies of water. If the public water supplies were contaminated that would kill the crops irrigated with it. I’d think it would be more difficult to poison ground water, but wouldn’t put anything past them.

      Grazon? It stays in the soil possibly for years.

    Good post OP! Nothing the idiots in charge do anymore surprises me. I have no doubt whatsoever that they would be willing to poison the land to control the people. They’ve already poisoned 60%+ of the population and are currently destroying the food supply and distribution networks.

    With GMO crops, it’s not a far fetched idea. Think of the crops that are now “safe” from glyphosate. Any of these engineered crops will survive spraying (i.e. chemtrails) all others (I.e. open pollinated) will not. The level of environmental damage would be unfathomable, but it would feed in to the climate change narrative and allow the establishment to gain even more control over us. That’s their ultimate goal.

    I so agree. I hear that graphene oxide is being found in the ground samples. That will also cause death to birds, other small creatures on earth and is already damaging plants. I heard about this on one of Dave Wigington’s Geo Engineering YouTube videos.

    Any weapon formed against us shall not prosper, if you are one of Gods don’t worry.

    If you aren’t one of Gods you won’t escape, even if you escape hunger, a bear will be waiting around the corner for you.

    It would be impossible to protect everything unless you had a complete sealed aquaponic system. Hydroponic wouldn’t work as you would still need chemicals to balance the water for the plants. I have already seen a video of “white fire raining down) as they are already using these types of “banned bombs” over parts of Ukraine. Burning everything. For the super Rich who have these set ups in their super bunkers their hydroponic system for growing long term survival is flawed. artificial lighting, filtered water,and air etc. The diversity of food stuff they will be able to grow in these systems will not provide the things a person needs to stay healthy. despite what you may think. Nutrients in the plants grown this way are depleted in trace minerals only got from growing in soil. There are certain plants that are very good at getting rid of the bad stuff in soil. Sunflowers for one. But you would need a whole lot to treat an area and then what would you do with the sunflower plants? I have thought about that. My husband is a retired vet and missed the draft for Vietnam by 6 months. But we have know many that were there are are no longer with us or still have health issues. In the even a nuke strike. those of us that would survive would suffer radiation burns etc. One plant that I know of does heal radiation burns very well. That is the Aloe Vera plant and I would not be without. I for one am looking more as to how I grow. My garden can be seen from space with google earth and anything above with my nice straight rows. In a few years mine will be more like a food forest. Less obvious to the eyes above. That is if it isn’t beyond repair from what they are doing. I put my trust in God Almighty. And if my time is up I will meet my maker. and if not, with his grace will be here to help those around me to survive as best we can.

      Yes, I don’t understand why people like to set up complicated hydroponic systems and think that those systems will help them in a survival situation.

    I think they will just send in cops or a drone long before they would mess with killing our crops from above.
