The recent Americans who slaughtered 17 Afghans, has been described as a one off event, but it most certainly isn’t. The war propaganda is not much different than it’s ever been. This clip is about a similar, but much bigger massacre that I bet most here have never even heard of.
In 16 March 1968, American troops came into the local village around My Lai, Vietnam, and massacred up to 500 civilians, nearly all of them were women, children, babies and old men. None of them armed, and all passive civilians. Many were brutally mutilated as well. Even all the animals were slaughtered, even pets.
After this horrific event, the US military tried to cover this all up. The truth eventually got out, but only one officer was jailed and only for 3.5 years, and he’s not the one in this video which is pretty amazing when you watch this guys sick confession to what he did that day.
The village in this video lost over 100 civilians, but in total for the whole area, up to 500 innocents were brutally massacred.
What happened recently in Afghanistan was not a one off event and was not a lone killer as witnesses testify, but just one more war propaganda cover-up of sick events.
There is another clip with some graphic images which covered the only person jailed for this event: http://www.youtube.com/v/xqPEzc5CWno

UPDATE – Some posters claim there was only “one killer” in the recent civilian slayings in Afghanistan, so I’m linking to new information that shows there were more, and it’s been covered up as most massacres are for political reasons. I hope some of the more evasive viewers will deal with the uncomfortable facts and stop trying to shoot the messenger.
