An American at My Lai on 60 minutes tonight


    I thought this was an important story, especially now that we are wondering what makes some soldiers behave poorly and others heros.

    The sad, sad truth is that there is a potential My Lai in every war and "police Action' and even "army movement". Where there are young people with weapons and a tense situation there will be atrocities. Which is why I am so very against war.

    Okay I will admit it - I would rather follow Ghandi than a military band.

    no-one looks forward to war. My heart goes out to the innocent people that are casualties of any war, civillian and military.

    I watched this 60 minutes segment - very sad for all involved. I hope and pray we aren't in the middle of another My Lai incident!

    I just think this man exemplifies what the US military should value. He took a stand, risked his own safety and suffered the consequences. And he always knew he did the right thing.
