I've seen a few of those movies. War is atrocity. It's evil is on all sides...
There was an old Star Trek show that influenced me earlier. At the end of an action-packed
show, Captain Kirk said something to the effect, "War, Annan, is something to be avoided"

What a good statement.

While where at it lets talk about Hitler?

While you like it or not. - War crimes happen daily.

Vietnam' was a disgrace in my personal opinion, even more so the battle of long tan.

Platoon is one of the " milder" war films i have watched.. You have to remember that they make films to make money.. So everything is geared up to produce an entertaining hour and a half

You need to watch documentaries about Vietnam or chat with someone who was there....

What strikes me now,as Iv'e got older,is,not a sense of guilt exactly,but so often in those films,depicting the Vietnam war,are the songs of the 60's,music that I loved.And that while I was having a great time,that was happening to my peers...and I was hardly aware of it .:eek:
