An extremely interesting perspective of Monsanto can be gained by reading this article: Forbes Was Wrong On Monsanto. Really Wrong. by Robert Langreth, that was published 12 Oct 2010:
Forbes made Monsanto the 'company of the year' last year in The Planet Versus Monsanto. I know because I wrote the article.
Gandhi got his country to reject the products of the British empire. GMOs and vaccines are central products of this empire and each are also bioweapons (http://oilgeopolitics.net/Swine_Flu/Gates_Vaccines/gates_vaccines.html).
And look what they can do with them - a literal war. Monsanto made Agent Orange to defoliate Vietnam. Now it has created crops that tolerate it (its recent pesticides have components of AO in it) and it has written a food safety bill giving the director of the FDA" food safety" division (a Monsanto VP) military power to do whatever he wants to protect food and farms. If he declares there is an invasive species (earthworms are listed by the USDA that way), he could have the military aerial spray Agent Orange pesticide across the country, destroying farms and all normal food, and only GMO food, owned whole-ly by corporations would remain. And that food is deadly (infertility, sterility, birth defects, cancer, diabetes, etc).
