    Kill Anything that Moves:

    what American forces actually were doing in Vietnam.  [...] Turse discovers that episodes of devastation, murder, massacre, rape, and torture once considered isolated atrocities were in fact the norm, adding up to a continuous stream of atrocity, unfolding, year after year, throughout that country.

    Compared to the neverending atrocities US forces wreaked on millions of Vietnamese for a generation, shouting and obnoxious behavior seems a poor substitute for jailing them for war crimes.

          One too many epidermal abrasions there?
          Seeming awfully thin.

          However, you are correct -- the comment was more properly addressed higher in the thread.

          You are merely supporting evidence.
