    Why is it a trick? Unless you served in the conflict probably nothing.

    But if you can't answer then nevermind.

    Buddy, you obviously didn't understand what I wrote with a question like that. So why don't you go study it for a while. Don't assume I can't answer, when you ask an irrelevant question.

We didn't stake out and torture and burn village chiefs for not giving up their people to go and fight for that jerk. Then leave them there burning as an example of how civilized they were.

    Then why did we forsake the moral high ground and commit the atrocity?

    My Lai was the act of one rogue platoon. Dak Son and Hue were the result of official Communist policy.
    What makes the United States different than the communist regimes is that we are supposed to make our "rouge platoons" be held accountable for their actions.

    How did we forsake the high ground? Major difference when ones leaders aren't advocating to commit atrocities wouldn't you say?

    Any of our people will be brought for our own laws. Can't say the same for them.

    The only one's who did not forsake the moral high ground was Hugh Thompson jr., the helicopter pilot who landed his helicopter in between a group of soldiers and the Veitnamese. He helped stop the massacre but I bet you think diffrently since he had to level his helicopters machine guns on the solders in order to intimidate them and keep them from commiting murder.

    Summary executions are not only a crime in the military, they're unconstitutional. Had he opened fire, he would have been guilty of murder.

    You don't get to break the law, just because someone else is breaking the law.

    The difference you can't seem to realize, is that what took place at My Lai and My Khe wasn't a matter of official policy. The Communists, on the other hand had an official policy in place that called for the murder of innocent civilians. To date, no one in the North has ever been tried, much less convicted of the war crimes that were commited during the war.

    Thats not even the ****ed up part. The ****ed up part, is that there are Americans that acrually defend those pieces of ****.
