How many more Mai Lais have there already been for USA forces since March 1968?


"Fifty years ago today...[this month] U.S. soldiers attacked the Vietnamese village of My Lai. U.S. troops arrived at 7:30 a.m. local time. Even though the soldiers met no resistance, they slaughtered more than 500 Vietnamese women, children and old men over the next four hours, in what became known as the My Lai massacre. The soldiers raped women. They burned their houses. They mutilated the villagers' bodies. One U.S. soldier said he was ordered to "kill anything that breathed,'" notes Amy Goodman in recent program on Democracy Now.

" "Well, 504 civilians, noncombatants, were mowed down by soldiers. As you said, it was horrific, but it was not an isolated incident. It was part of the culture of the war that had been created and fostered and was largely a product of the Pentagon's insistence" --noted Ron Carver, who was marching in same region as massacre of Lai Lai when it occurred.
