I went with a friend of mine, a new friend, to see this movie Sir No Sir, this is a film by David Zeiger, Displace Films and Balcony Release, This is a very much suppressed story of the VietNam conflict, (WAR), and the thousands of American GIs who rebelled against the VietNam War, changing the course of U.S. history, and society.
Being a veteran of this war, I was most curious about what it may reveal, I knew at the time that I was in the military that these events were taking place, but I had no idea of the magnitude of this movement. So if you think that the Iraq war is troubled with a new breed of tortureous troops, think again, and if you think that the incidents of the Iraq war are isolated incidents, being undertaken for the amusement of the GIs involved, think again, they are all following orders. War is hell, and if you are fighting a war, for whatever reason, then fight the war, play by the rules of engagement that the enemy plays by, and if you get caught doing inhumane things to captured enemy forces, or suspected enemy forces, be advised that the Commander in Chief, and all subordinates all the way down, and back up the chain of command, are going to deny that those orders were ever issued, so make sure that you have it in writing, and or well documented. Lt. William Calley didn't, and he paid the price.
Closing note, My Thanks To My Friend CHARLENE , I enjoyed every minute of your company.
