Operation Raw

A lot has been said about how John Kerry was not indicting all soldiers in Vietnam,McQ, does a damn fine job of debunking that.

AS McQ says,

There was a reason they formed an “infantry unit of company strength”. It was so they could portray American infantrymen, every day soldiers, as brutal butchers. Now, the words sound hyperbolic, but they’re not. As Operation RAW moved through each town they enacted their version of a “search and destroy” operation”. As described in one of the flyers, the purpose of this unit was to “dramatize as authentic a picture of a US Army search and destroy mission to the American people as practical."

Sounds like an indictment to me.
