    "Hearts & Minds" you can't beat it!

    He took ears, heads and probably other body parts - but he could not take their hearts.

    I don't think there will be any wailing in the streets if Vietnam.
  3. Auld Yin -- don't be so po-faced. How can you not admire a man who comes out with:

    "We flew in real low, in front of that bastard's house, and I threw the head so it bounced right on his porch and into his front door".

    Get some!!
  4. Yay. A war-criminal. Hope he rots in hell.
  5. Sh1t, charging a man with murder in this place was like handing out speeding tickets at the 'Indie 500'
  6. Seems like this Poshepny character was a loose canon. It is one thing to brag and celebrate about what this thug did, it is a totally different thing to accept him as a hero because he is not.
  7. D.D. I wasn't doing that - click on the link by TripWire and you may get my drift..
  8. Actually J_W, my reply was directed at Trippy, whose love for the absurd is truly amazing.

    I saw the link. The guy should have died in jail.

  15. JoseyWales,

    Great piece. 'Tis a shame how the work of the many good seems to be always tarnished by the few bad.
