Tiger Force

Randy Paul at Beautiful Horizons has put up a link to a series of articles in the Toledo Blade detailing a long-term series of atrocities committed by US soildiers in Viet Nam in 1967. They make for fascinating if extremely uncomfortable reading.

The actions of Tiger Force–the elite unit in question–weren’t completely unknown at the time; one newspaper, I remember, even ran a photograph of a number of them showing off their ear collection. But the extent and severity of their atrocities was never made public before now.

Read them and weep. Iraq is not Viet Nam but war is war and it could happen again.
