Careful when you watch this, there is some disinformation that happens in it. Some contexts are self serving to the "Hey I didn't know what was happening, I just got caught up in it" bs often given by those who took part in the atrocity. I give no creadence for apologeticts for genocide... that's right I said genocide, to call what happened to South East Asia anything else is shameful. Grain of salt comrades. After seeing this watch "Trails of Henry Kissinger". I think that is the name, night all

I saw the documentary "The Trials of Henry Kissinger". Although the film is very neutral when touching on the crimes and the complicity of the man, it still is a very good first step in exposing the criminal, Kissinger, to those who missed it.
