(NaturalNews) The European Union (EU) has been largely resistant to adopting genetically-modified organisms (GMO), and rightly so considering their threat to human health and to the environment. But recently-released leaked cables have revealed that Bush Administration-appointed, former U.S. Ambassador to France Craig Roberts Stapleton threatened the EU with retaliation years ago if it did not comply with the interests of U.S. biotechnology giants like Monsanto.

Besides being slow to adopt "Frankenfoods", France and several other European nations had proposed at the very least making biotechnology companies responsible for contamination caused by their GM seeds and pollen, just as any other industry would be responsible for their environmental pollution. But Stapleton and the special interests he represented could not tolerate this, and threatened to publicly release a "retaliation list" of European locations where GMOs were being test planted in order that protestors could destroy them and "cause some pain" for EU officials.

When the U.S. government-corporate industrial complex does not get its way, it resorts to vicious manipulation tactics to coerce its enemies into complying with its demands. And with biotechnology and drug companies, they must have it all in order to succeed in their endeavors, squashing any and all competition in the process.

When Stapleton responded to France's proposal to hold biotechnology companies liable for their GM pollution by saying that it would "make any biotech planting impossible in practical terms," he exposed the GMO scandal for what it truly is. GM purveyors know that their fake food crops will contaminate the environment and wreak all kinds of havoc, and thus cannot have any laws enacted that hold them responsible this destruction.

A recent study out of the University of Arkansas found that GM canola has already overtaken much of North Dakota, and that 80 percent of wild canola plants there tested positive for having modified genes. And Monsanto's GM corn has been found growing in Ireland, even though it cannot legally be planted in any EU nation.
