No, it is set in much earlier period of the war and based on a non fiction book. Incidently Fire base Gloria is one of the worst of the VN war movies ranking with Platoon and others for left wing bias.

This was the only movie I could think of when Roland1369 described it being earlier in the war.

Thank you Roland1369 here is the next quote:
Just as we would not send any of our soldiers to march in other states, and tyrannize other people... so will we never allow the armies of others to march into our states and tyrannize our people.

Sorry about the delay - here is the next question.

Three months ago, the Spanish viceroy sent a diplomat who warned me to curb my political ambitions. In answer, I sent part of him back to Panama - his head, to be precise.
