Vietnam Myth - It was Vietnam who dropped the bomb not US as media reported.

Myth:
Kim Phuc, the little nine year old Vietnamese girl running naked from the napalm strike near Trang Bang on 8 June 1972, was burned by Americans bombing Trang Bang.

No American had involvement in this incident near Trang Bang that burned Phan Thi Kim Phuc. The planes doing the bombing near the village were VNAF (Vietnam Air Force) and were being flown by Vietnamese pilots in support of South Vietnamese troops on the ground.

The Vietnamese pilot who dropped the napalm in error is currently living in the United States. Even the AP photographer, Nick Ut, who took the picture was Vietnamese. The incident in the photo took place on the second day of a three day battle between the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) who occupied the village of Trang Bang and the ARVN (Army of the Republic of Vietnam) who were trying to force the NVA out of the village.

Recent reports in the news media that an American commander ordered the air strike that burned Kim Phuc are incorrect. There were no Americans involved in any capacity. "We (Americans) had nothing to do with controlling VNAF," according to Lieutenant General (Ret) James F. Hollingsworth, the Commanding General of TRAC at that time. Also, it has been incorrectly reported that two of Kim Phuc's brothers were killed in this incident. They were Kim's cousins not her brothers.

your still here?

Ok 1st off.. What did this post have to do with Samd? One defending America doesn't imply that one is dismissing all atrocities committed by the machine that is the United States Military. Why the personal attacks? I thought your kind didn't persecute others for holding different views? Is it time your your annual vaginal sand drainage again? You are such a butthurt e-know it all liberal, that its impossible not to make fun of you... Judge not.. How many years were you in the military? How do you claim to have any understanding of military ops knowing full well you are way to big of a pussy to join, let alone scrutinize anyone else for their lack there of...

The time is coming when those who kill you will think they are offering service to God. Jesus - (John 16.2) A penny saved is a government oversight.

They are the ones who like to shout down the opposition and of course when you have only emotion and no logic or common sense, screaming and wailing are your only tools.

You are nothing more than my online happy sock. I have fun reading your shit knowing you have no ability to back any of it up. I only rarely get pissed here. For all I know, you could be Uncle Ted Nugent just trying to have fun with us. You don't have the ability to piss me off. Now, if we ever met and you kicked my ass and gloated about it on here, I might get a bit upset, but that's about as likely as Keith Olberman and Sarah Palin getting married.

you never win. You are a piece of shit, but i enjoy you being here because as long as your faggot ass is here, I'm not bored. As for you thinking I'm a potential terrorist, good. People like you who live in fear of the bad men are amusing. Terrorist. Maybe in the future, but not right now. You can loosen the grip on your teddy bear for right now.
