Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

When killed or wounded, they're not counted as U.S. casualties, and there is little political backlash; in fact, no one seems to care if they die. This is an attempt, then, to fight an increasingly unpopular war without the political costs of our soldiers dying in an unpopular war."
