One thought on “Chris Hedges: The Hidden Tragedy of the Vietnam War

  1. Kill Anything That Moves should be a required text for all US students. After reading it they should realise to a limited extent the US hypocrisy in accusing any other state of war crimes and atrocities. War crimes and atrocities were routinely committed by US troops in Vietnam.”
