Thanks for the ping, vooch. I don't know if it can be explained to someone who wasn't there. Or at least someplace (like Southeast Asia) where this sort of thing went on. And maybe you have to have been there to understand that there is no such thing as an "unarmed villager" in the Balkans. Or maybe I'm old and tired. People will believe what they want to believe, regardless of evidence or lack thereof.
Racak again. You all know my thoughts on that. It's a case of "lack thereof" and "what's wrong with this picture?". If you want, I could go back and look at some very old threads where we pulled together what we could find of forensic evidence on the net and analysed it.
I confess I haven't read through this thread yet. Maybe I'll be able to contribute something once I've had time to read it all.
You are correct, Vietnam Vets on this forum recognize the Racak incident for its parallels with VC strategy against neutralist/ARVN villages, others don't have a clue how ruthless guerilla paramilitaries can be.
