The Vietnam War In Pictures: The 35th anniversary of the fall of Saigon

June 8, 1972: nine-year-old Kim Phuc, centre, runs down Route 1 near Trang Bang, Vietnam after an aerial napalm attack

The one who causes the above is treated like below:

Funny, no? But that’s civilization for you; that’s what passes for humanity!

Now fast forward 35 years and what has changed? Nothing! Except in our neighborhood, the ‘heroes’ are not killing ‘gooks’ but their own kind…and celebrating the slaughter. In fact they are so happy, they just announced they’d do so every year(copying The Master’s ‘Veterans Day‘, of course):

Half a million flee Swat valley as Pakistan faces months of fighting

Shop owner Saeed Khan has already buried one child killed in fighting between the Taliban and government forces in northwest Pakistan. He cannot bear to lose another, AFP reports.

Still selling the "sovereignty" myth...

“He urged the officers and soldiers to follow the footsteps of their valiant predecessors and spare no effort whatsoever to ensure impregnable defence of their motherland.”

Three words Kiyani:

"Independent" Kiyani probably getting orders...

    “And frankly, if I knew how to do that myself, I would embark on it for my own people in Pakistan! History’s actors don’t become history’s actors by being weekend warriors of words alone.”

    Editor’s Warning: The following photo collection contains some graphic violence and depictions of dead bodies.

    Zahir’s comment: I have no interest in looking at these old Vietnam pictures myself anymore than I have interest in looking at the many new on-going Vietnams pictures (mainly because I can’t stomach even looking at it – imagine those actually having to suffer it).

    I have to wonder what’s the point of documenting these wars in such photographic details except for selling big-prints and books? It’s not like the public does anything about it, except look at them with apathy, or tsk-tsk at best. See this John Pilger article of “From Belsen to Gaza: looking from the side”. It’s on his website. That description is empirical. So – again, what’s the point of remembering the 35th Anniversary of the previous works from the “Brotherhood of Death”, when newer ones are happening just down the street?

    But there is infact one thing to learn: that the USSR was the best enemy money could buy, just like Militant Islam is today.

    The “Brotherhood of Death” elite in the United States had funded both sides of Vietnam War.

    Same is happening today.

    The pictures above of course don’t tell that story, any more than the pictures from Sawat/Afganistan/Iraq tell it.

    But Antony Sutton does tell it. So did Norman Dodd – here is an old interview:
