Media Praises Vietnam Veterans On Their Own Special Day across
America. In New York, in North Dakota, in Tennessee And in California.
Vietnamese wonder. Praise for killing us? Why aren't they still
killing us? Our government is still the same communist led one as
back then. Our flag is red.
In Dancing With Wolves, Kevin Costner, as Lieutenant John Dunbar,
then living as a Native American, is demanded an answer to a question
from an American soldier who has just beat him up. Kostner (Dunbar)
answers in the Sioux language after spitting out some blood "You are
not worth talking to." That he speaks in a language the soldiers
can't understand (translated for the movie goers in a subtitle below
the film footage) as if emphasizing in his own mind that these
American soldiers not worth being talked to.
People that are incapable of caring about right from wrong and
massive senseless violent death are beyond communication.
Whether for their self-indulgent materialist egotistical, life-style
having been taught to them from birth by commercial advertising
controlled corporate media, or for some other collective fear and
insanity, onlookers who are compassionate, know its not their fault.
Americans in general seem to have become mentally disadvantaged and
simply require medical attention.
And the Vietnamese are vastly compassionate in their gentle Buddhist
cause and effect no fault belief.
Americans, long known and feared for bombing, napalming, torturing,
invading, destroying and occupying nations weaker than their own are
also known by billions watching conglomerate network satellite
network news videos for praising military personnel with disregard
for the millions fallen in harms way of U.S. armed forces. This
frightening 'why us worry' indifference to foreign death at U.S.
hands has now become legendary. A national complicity in criminal
insanity and praising it would seem to require some expert mass psychoanalysis.
Your writer and Veterans For Peace member, will not make any attempt
here at curing the heartlessness of what has been going on for so
many many years of military madness. Albert Einstein tried for years
to no avail. Vietnam Veterans Against the War and Veterans For Peace
are supremely aware of the horror of suffering they were made to put
on the largely peasant population of what were three colonies of
Indochina, and keep trying with scant success.
Evolution or revolution, but not by talking or writing, nor showing
the photos of My Lai massacres or of napalmed children, or of
soldiers torching humble homes with cigarette lighters, nor the sight
of tons upon tons of bombs being dropped at high altitude from planes
painted with the American flag have any effect. Americans are
familiar with all these photos. They still put up with official
praise for the duped young men, many of whom lost limbs and saw their
Are Americans as a nation hopeless? To put up with such disgusting
hype praising the very young men fooled into thinking they were
defending their folks back home in killing poor Vietnamese fighting
the occupiers of their nation, after having already fought the French
and Japanese occupations.
Damn! It was never a officially declared war. Congress fudged, never
called it a war on Vietnam, or North Vietnam or South Vietnam where
Kennedy authorized the first bombing and napalming in the Delta. Why
the official praise? For the ears of the next group of Americans to
be suckered into killing and dying unconstitutionally but honored to
the hilt afterwards.
How about a 'My Lai Day' for the men, women and children
machine=gunned at point blank range in ditches just than one
afternoon during an American thirty year admittedly mistaken war by
six American presidents and more Congresses?
Will Media and Congress someday proclaim an 'Afghan War Veterans
Day', an 'Iraq War Veterans Day'? (Those were also military actions
against a population without Congressional constitutional authority.)
How about an official day praising America's NATO allies?
NATO Killed School Children and Pregnant Women
Tries to Silence a Truth-Teller by Derrick Crowe - Warning - This
video contains disturbing images.
'Dominican Republic Invasion Veterans Day', 'Lebanon Shelling
Veterans Day', a 'Somalia Veterans Day', a 'Grenada Veterans Day'?
Why not more democratic and even handed in praise. Why do state
governments proclaim a Day selectively for those of us who were had in Vietnam
If conglomerate media could have an honest moment, they could push
for a 'Praise War Day', and include all veteran victims of propaganda
in carrying out illegal orders.
Better yet, a 'War Promotion Media Day' or still better a David
Rockefeller Bilderberg, Council on Foreign Relations Trilateral
Commission Day'. That would be fundamental.
When network attractive empty minded script reading anchors say how
thankful all Americans are for the dead soldiers "giving their lives
for us and their country" in a war that Obama once called a "dumb
war" or Sec. McNamara called an "miscalculation", some us don't feel American.
In any case, if the world sees Americans are not worth taking to, it
must be because Americans themselves are not talking, not even much
about their country having be taken away from them by bankers, media
