5.0 out of 5 stars A history of pure lunacy, 22 Feb. 2004

This review is from: Four Hours in My Lai: A War Crime and Its Aftermath (Paperback)
What happened on March 16th, 1968 in the village of My Lai, South Vietnam? The soldiers of "Charlie Company" under the command of Captain Ernest Medina went completely mad, that's what. Four hours of bayoneting civilians, raping women, killing children and babies and generally turning the entire village into a living nightmare. Many were even relishing their horrific acts. Between 300 and 400 Vietnamese civilians were slain and not a single U.S. soldier received any kind of sentence for such an act, regardless of the fact that the massacre was well-documented and known to the military courts in the United States.
Only Lieutenant William Calley even went on trial, received a 10 year sentence (if I remember correctly) and served a couple of months and was released. All others were let off because of "lack of evidence". What a farce! Now after something like that, how can victims of U.S. war crimes expect any kind of justice?? Now we all know why America refused to sign up to an international tribunal for war crimes; they simply do not want to tarnish their "good guys" reputation.
