Of course it is not pretty war is never pretty there are never any people who are spared when people fight the civilians always get hit the hardest. Also you misspelled Vietnam it is not spelled Vitnam.
I ve been there, and I think those pictures are just horrible. You really learn and see how bad war is for all people involved. The thing that is kind of interesting though, at least in my point of view, is that all this "media coverage" you see is done by American journalists and photographers!
Awesome post! It really made me want to vomit on my new Dell!
Seriously, great post.
Saw 4 is the top movie in America right now. Go to a museum or pick up a book. There's plenty of gore, but it's not pornographic. It's just very sad.
My grandfather and most of my family actually fought in Vietnam. What most people don't see is that I took its tole on America. Its one of the only wars we have ever lost. We lost a lot of people to this war.
I've found out over the years and even to this present day that this is one war that no one in America likes to talk about. It's sad that the soliders experience so much horror in fighting this war. I know war isn't suppose to be pretty but it left an ugly scar on the soliders and families who have to live with it's past.
I'm vietnamese and i'll remember forever this war. Too many evils USA army caused to Vietnamese people. Why does USA army still do that with other countries?! While they call BinLaden is terrorist, So what they call themselves were??? I know the attempt of USA people who want to heal the pains of this war,and we, Vietnamese people will tolerate them. But history is still history, we must consider it as a lession.
Tell you, my grandfather and two of my uncles sacrificed in this war. And now, we can't find corpse of my sixth uncle. He only was at the age 16 when he lost his life. That's a pain of my family. I can't forget it...
I like to talk about the Vietnam War quite a bit. It pretty well embodies a lot of those less-praised qualities of humanity, the initiation and continuation of extreme inhumanities justified with incredibly cold and terribly discomforting logic.
