    1. Another reason that I will truly miss RT

    I love Chris Hedges and they are the best when it comes to reporting on war and war crimes.  I am sure that our CIA hates to see all of our past dirty laundry being brought out before the world.  A buzzkill to their Empire building.

      Wake up, peeps, their kids go to Harvard and Yale; your kids go to Iraq & Afghanistan.

    2. Unfortunately true

    Without going into details, I can also verify much that took place in Nam could be considered acts of atrocities. On the other hand, considering what many in-country soldiers endured, there were also many acts of humanity performed. Survival becomes extremely perplexed in a place filled with confusion and anger. A place where many didn’t wish to be.
