Re: “The midweek line: Declining birth rates and a murder conviction

Senator Jim Inhofe, R-Okla

"One thing we're supposed to be doing out there is building roads. Read the Constitution sometime when you're out of things to read. It says what we're supposed to be doing is two things: Defending America and building infrastructure."

Re: “The open line for a busy evening

plainjim, all the My Lais were the result of: 1). American military strategy of "Free Fire Zones" created as an attempt to deal with great difficulty of distinguishing friend from foe that is part of guerrilla warfare. Known friendlies were moved out of a zone and the rest were considered Viet Cong sympathizers and killed on sight, 2). the establishment of body counts for American units as a way of trying to mark success in a conflict with no front lines. Military units were awarded notice and beer and liberty for the highest body counts. Water buffalo were killed in the free fire zones and added to the tallies as killed "combatants." Body kills was a "new" tactic by the American military having never beeen used before. My Lai was reported as a great victory over Viet Cong forces and tallied with the body counts of Capt. Medina's unit. LIFE MAGAZINE'S, and others as well, publication of Ronald Haeberle's photos exposed it all.

Survivors at My Lai (and other Vietnam villages) might pose the same questions about American people being "civilized," plainjim.
