In Memory: My Lai

Today is Monday, 16 March 2009.

On this date in 1968, U.S. Army units assassinated more than 500 civilians in and in the vicinity of the hamlet of My Lai in the Republic of Vietnam, acting on direct orders of their task force commander and conditioned by ideological and racist hate.

"Ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant." "They have made a desert, and called it peace." (Tacitus)
