MY LAI MASSACRE
On 16 March 1968, members of the US Military massacred almost an entire village of Vietnamese civilains. Between 350-500 people were killed on that morning. Many had been sexually abused, beaten, tortured and maimed.
The massacre and its aftermath, including cover ups and ineffectual trials were proof of the atrocities committed by the military and condoned by the United States government.
For a good report on the massacre and the subsequent trial of William Calley please check out the following website.
Sorry this is another cut and paste. Perhaps this is a blogger flaw.
