Remembering The My Lai Massacre, And Lt William Calley ... And Colin Powell ...
Thirty six years ago today, the small piece of shit pictured above in a US Army uniform was found guilty of murder at a court martial for his part in the My Lai massacre, which claimed the lives of 500 innocent South Vietnamese civilians.
We remember the My Lai massacre well;too bloody well.
Who among any who knew could ever forget?
Nor should anyone else.
While the simple thrust and truth of this sickeningly, shocking and shameful US war crime story should be easy to see via these two links, we're sure many among our readers will want to follow some of the (inumerable), others to be found therein.
Especially, readers who are as interested as we always are in helping keep history 'straight'.
And to perpetuate the philosophy of our principled, personal practice (whenever possible), of naming and shaming -- particularly when there are BIG names involved.
You know, the high and mighty, as some would say.
Anyway, here's your first link:

To sum up?
So what's new?
Some things never change.
In or out of uniforms, shits are still shits.
And evermore shall be.
