    Wie viele Menschen waren´s da ? Um die 3 Millionen die für den überhaupt sinnlosesten Krieg gestorben sind.

    Genozid ?

    Welcher Krieg war deiner Ansicht nach weniger sinnlos oder vielleicht sogar sinnvoll?

    "Jede Kanone, die gebaut wird, jedes Kriegsschiff, das vom Stapel gelassen wird, jede abgefeuerte Rakete bedeutet letztlich einen Diebstahl an denen, die hungern und nichts zu essen bekommen, denen, die frieren und keine Kleidung haben. Eine Welt unter Waffen verpulvert nicht nur Geld allein. Sie verpulvert auch den Schweiß ihrer Arbeiter, den Geist ihrer Wissenschaftler und die Hoffnung ihrer Kinder."

    Dwight D. Eisenhower

    A MESSAGE FROM THE QUEEN
    To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
    In light of your failure in recent years... to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)
    Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).
    Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.
    Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.
    To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:
    -----------------------
    1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').
    ------------------------
    2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'
    -------------------
    3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.
    -----------------
    4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.
    ----------------------
    5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.
    ----------------------
    6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.
    --------------------
    7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.
    -------------------
    8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.
    -------------------
    9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.
    ---------------------
    10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.
    ---------------------
    11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).
    ---------------------
    12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.
    --------------------
    13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.
    -----------------
    14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).
    ---------------
    15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.
    God Save the Queen!

    Ob ein Brite genau so humorvoll reagiert wenn Inder eine Gegenrechnung für 200 Jahre Kolonialismus und Ausbeutung aufmacht?
    Oder wie ein indischer Freund mal lakonisch bemerkte " We shouldn't complain. The Brits gave us the round-about"

    Ich stoere Dich ungern in weinerlicher Sentimentalitaet, aber es waren ca. 4 Millionen Zivilisten, die im Vietnam Krieg zu Tode kamen.

    2,5 Millionen davon waren allerdings Opfer kommunistischer Saeuberungen.

    Da gibt's doch diese Bilder, zum Beispiel eine Mutter, ihr Baby auf dem Arm, das von einer Napalmbombe
    quasi Enthäutet wurde.
    Später im Irak waren es dann wieder 1 Million Zivilisten die wegen einem Verdacht, das Land besässe
    Massenvernichtungsmittel, gestorben sind.

    Mir tun diese Menschen leid ! Und für mich betreiben die USA geplanten Genozid.

    Von 4 Millionen ziviler Todeopfer im Vietnam Krieg gehen 2,5 Mio auf das Konto kommunistischer Saeuberungen.

    Ein weiterer hoher Anteil entfaellt auf die vor den Kommunisten Fluechtenden und auf die kaum vorstellbare Grausamkeit, mit der Nordvietnamesen und Vietcong eine nicht kooperationswillige Bevoelkerung drangsalierten.

    Ein Teil davon geht sicher auch zu Lasten der USA, aber daraus einen geplanten Genozid machen zu wollen zeugt von einem nicht zu unterschaetzenden Hirnschaden.

    Unser eloquenter Schüler schafft es aus jedem Dreckseinsatz der US-Amerikaner das Gute herauszulesen - hier betrug die ´Restschuld bereinigt´ und so man ihm folgt gleich weniger ein Drittel..

    Soll ich dir noch ein paar Links raussuchen ? Auf den Hirnschaden will ich jetzt nicht näher eingehen, aber so wie die Sachlage aussieht, liegt der nicht bei mir.



    Das Massaker von Mỹ Lai (Son My) war ein Kriegsverbrechen US-amerikanischer Soldaten in Südvietnam, das 1968 während des Vietnamkrieges in dem Gemeindeteil Mỹ Lai des Dorfs Sơn Mỹ, genannt My Lai 4, begangen wurde. Das Massaker an 504 Zivilisten wurde von der US-Armee zunächst vertuscht. Erst durch Recherchen des investigativen Journalisten Seymour Hersh gelangte das Geschehen an die Öffentlichkeit, wobei die Veröffentlichung der Reportage zunächst für etwa ein Jahr von sämtlichen Medien abgelehnt worden war. Hersh erhielt 1970 den Pulitzer-Preis, die Veröffentlichung hatte großen Einfluss auf die öffentliche Meinung zum Vietnamkrieg in den USA.
