Well, don't most realistic war movies make war seem awful?

The Vietnam War in particular does look really crappy in a lot of movies. Even besides the brutal combat, the conditions seemed terrible, all that rain and marching in the jungle, the heat and humidity. It just all seemed terrible.


Hated the bugs and snakes>:(


I bet. It looks awful. I would rather be in a war in Iraq than Vietnam. Afghanistan too. Not talking about the combatants, just the elements.


I think I'd take the heat over the cold:-\


Paint it Black - Vietnam War

Amen to that brutha..... At least you can Move.  ;)

Here is a little bit of Nam with some Music.....or I should say it like Spunks says. Here is some enrichment for ya's.  ;D


One of my favorite Stones pieces.

leeches.....did i mention the leeches. I hated those things. Always had to be checking ourselves for those fucks. One little ole lady we met. Showed us a neat little trick. which was to take bean oil and cover yourself in it. Made it harder for the leeches to grab on to. Not that they couldn't just more difficult for them. Course after sweating your ass off and I am talking dripping swet it does wear off. But I was totally surprised that it worked. Even water would kinda just run off ya.

Also note the difference in Equipment. Sometimes one had to move light and quick.

Yeah, it's good that they repeat them a lot, especially the original stuff.
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. -Eisenhower

Is this the one Vietnam HD? About Hill 397 known as Hamburger Hill. Right now they are talking about how it was a change in Warfare. With the Use of Helicopters. Known as Air Mobility.
