(graphic ! ) PHOTOS of Vietnam atrocities...Iraq is a repeat performance
Edited on Sun Aug-29-04 10:16 AM by amen1234

seems that WAR CRIMES are free-flowing for America...of all the Vietnam WAR CRIMES, only ONE low-level soldier was ever taken to court (like current Iraq POW WAR CRIMES)....some of these Vietnam WAR CRIMES were directed by second-in-command of the Americal Division: Military General Colin Powell (and Powell was rewarded with a BIG PROMOTION after 'covering-up' a massacre that tortured, raped and murdered hundreds of farming women and children)....

American Soldiers proudly displaying their Vietnamese TROPHY heads...similar to the bush* TROPHY display of Iraq saddam's dead sons on TV, with big holes blown through their faces and blood all over...sort of a standard US military...

American Soldiers burning Vietnamese peasants homes (sometimes with people still inside the infernal), and burning the villages' food processing baskets, so those who survive will STARVE...

Vietnamese Children murdered by American Soldiers

Babies with Vietnamese Farm women, raped and killed by American Soldiers as they gathered their crops

American Soldiers destroyed hundreds of civilian Vietnamese farming villages in fire infernals, without warning, so the peasants often burned to death inside their homes....

note: for Iraq, more bombs have been dropped on Iraq than in WWII, turning large areas into flaming infernals, like the American Military did in Dresden, Germany.

American Soldiers dropped NAPALM on whole villages of innocent civilians. Napalm is a horrendous mixure of flaming plastic mixed with HOT tiny pieces of metal that imbeds into a human's skin and kills people in a flaming plastic molten metal, burns through muscle and into the bone, KILLING in a most horrifying and painful death that often takes hours or days in writhing pain...

Note: for Iraq, rumsfield order napalm dropped on civilians again...when the American pilots reported this, rumsfield blithly said: we don't call it 'napalm' anymore....we have a new name, and a new improved version of 'napalm'....since it's no longer called 'napalm', we didn't violate the law banning 'napalm'....besides, rummy noted that the 'generals' love this's bright, terrifying, and has a high psychological effect on the enemy...

Agent Orange being dropped on Vietnam 30 years ago

During the war about 10% of Vietnam was intensively sprayed with 72 million litres of chemicals, of which 66% was Agent Orange. Some of this landed on OUR own troops and soon after the war ended American veterans began complaining about serious health problems. There was also a high incidence of their children being born limbless or with Down's syndrome and spina bifida. The American veterans sued the defoliant manufacturers and this was settled out of court in 1984 by the payment of $180 million.

The TCCD dioxin used in Agent Orange seeped into the soil and water supply, and therefore into the food chain. In this way it passed from mother to foetus in the womb. In Vietnam the dioxide remains in the soil and is now damaging the health of the grandchildren of the war's victims.

A report published in 2003 claimed that 650,000 people in Vietnam were still suffering from chronic conditions as a result of the chemicals dropped on the country during the war. Since the war the Vietnamese Red Cross has registered an estimated one million people disabled by Agent Orange. It is estimated that 500,000 people in Vietnam have died from the numerous health problems created by these chemical weapons.

Note: for Iraq...Commander-in-Chief bush* has deliberately chosen Depleted Uranium as his poison...since his father GHB used Depleted Uranium so effectively during the 1991 Gulf War, there are 11,000 DEAD American Soldiers, and 325,000 American Soldiers on PERMANENT MEDICAL DISABILITY from Depleted Uranium, and vast areas of Iraq is radioactive for thousands of years...continue to deform babies, alter DNA, and destroy lives in Iraq..bush1's war only KILLED 467 American Soldiers during the war...but the radiation just keeps on Agent Orange, OUR soldiers are KILLED by OUR OWN POISONS....and never counted in the costs....

in summary: Iraq is another Vietnam.....Kerry was absolutely right that American Soldiers committed war crimes as shown in these photos (and there are thousands more photos)....this must be discussed, because bush* is running the EXACT same operation in Iraq, only with even more LETHAL and tormenting weapons, new and improve, dropped from above, spinning out flaming metal that chop off the arms and feet of little children and leave radiation spewed not only in that area, but carried by the wind in sandstorms all over, to be inhaled by OUR soldiers, and small children...leaving deformity and death everywhere...and it was AMERICA that decided radioactive nuclear bombs was a GREAT IDEA in WWII...leaving even OUR own people wallowing in radioactive waste from Hanford, to Rocky Flats to Oak Ridge to Pantex to a nation, America is so full of hate for others...that WE POISONED OURSELVES...forever....

3. The modern phenomena of TOTAL DEATH...

How did we get to this point?

".....At no time, before, during, or after the war, was there a living organic structure in society with sufficient strength to resist the new man-made and machine-made creation: organized DEATH...." (Gil Eliott, Twentieth Century Book of the Dead)

right now, bush* is running a government where almost half OUR taxes goes to KILLING, KILLING, WE THE PEOPLE can stop the KILLING whenever WE decide to stop funding this bush* insanity....
