A common space for harmonic peacemakers
There is no war can be just the finished
The other view
Photographers and the war
WOUNDED VIETCONG ... GI's often show a compassion for the enemy that springs from admiration of their dedication and bravery. This VC had a three-day-old stomach wound. He'd picked up his intestines and put them in an enamel cooking bowl (borrowed froma surprised farmer's wife) and strapped it around his middle. As he was being carried to the headquarters company for interrogation, he indicated he was thirsty. "OK, him VC, him drink dirty water," said the Vietnamese interpreter, pointing to the brown paddy-field. With real anger a GI told him to keep quiet, then mumbled, "Any soldier who can fight for three days with his insides out can drink from my canteen any time!"
WOUNDED CHILDREN, who, like most civilian victims, had been hit by indiscriminately used U.S. firewpower. The boy below was on his way to church in a 'safe' area when helicopters, firing into some VC positions only 300 yards away, overshot a rocket and wounded him. He died later in the hospital.
AFTER THE FIGHTING WAS OVER, the people were allowed to return to their former homes or rather what was left of them. The government paid each owner twenty dollars compensation, that is if the owner was still alive.
THE WOUNDED. Perhaps nothing more clearly reveals the extent of American indifference towad the suffering of the Vietnamese people than the enormous disparity between the money and effort expended to kill the Vietcong and that used to treat and care for civilians wounded in theory accidentally by U.S. forces while being protected from the VC.
There is no just war
Kill without murdering
5th Commandment: Thou shalt not kill. [Is a farce].
We can not democratize a country by an invasion.
War of the Americans in Vietnam was a war against communism for the American Way
Truth - evidence
Germany has freed itself, is a sovereign state now like any others, after the second World War II.
Economic interests - economic war.
