National Vietnam War Veterans Day in 2019
Towards the end of the 19th century, colonial French imperial forces gradually took more control of the Buddhist country of Vietnam. Colonial Europeans originally controlled it as a "protectorate" from 1883 through 1939. Then they controlled it as a "possession" from 1939 through 1945. This changed on September 2, 1945, when Vietnam's nationalist leader Ho Chi Minh proclaimed the country’s independence. In December of 1946, the First Indochina War began in French Indochina. A conflict between French forces and their opponents... [became one taken over by American imperial forces as we went in on France's official departure. That is how we entered the American War, in spite of all the lies politicians and disinformation specialists at the CIA, FBI, and NSA reported. We call it the "Vietnam War," an illegal and undeclared kinetic conflict that nearly tore the USA apart and ushered in the peace movement, the civil rights movement, the women's movement, and the general awakening of youths in its wake. North Americans began to realize that we live under the control of a military-industrial complex going on at least since the time of U.S. Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower. As General Smedley Butler revealed long ago, WAR IS A RACKET, a farce that gets many people killed to make a few people rich. Truth is the first casualty, replaced by propaganda and a national fairytale of our valor, because we have been lied into every war and invasion from the founding of the USA, beginning with the Genocide of the Native Americans to the first U.S. imperial adventures in the Philippines and Hawaii. It used to shock people of good conscience, but now it seems anything goes.]

Soldiers are young and naïve but soon become cynical, addicted, or dead.
