Google uncovers Vietnam articles

A letter writer suggested last Wednesday that we look at John Kerry’s 1971 testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The search engine Google is a good place to find it.

I think John Kerry was condemning the Vietnam war, those who would not take responsibility for its failure, the falsified body count, and numerous other shortcomings of leadership. The atrocities he cites were committed by some of the veterans he interviewed. The entire testimony is worth reading.

Having done so, I suggest you use Google again and look up “atrocities Vietnam.” The articles will keep you busy for days. Then, if you’re not full of and fed up with “atrocities,” try searches in Civil War, WWI, WWII. Korea, and Iraq, etc. It’s a product of war, it’s condemnable, no one is immune.

Perhaps we should hire a president to whom war is a last option.
