The inclusion of Vietnam War-related new stories in this post is problematic, because even though the Americans made some missteps in the Vietnam War, including the My Lai Massacre, they nobly committed to defeating the North Vietnamese and preventing the takeover of South Vietnam by N Vietnamese forces and so US forces thankfully escaped being punished by the international justice system for war crimes or crimes against humanity.

The Viet War story was actually linked as randomly coincidental history occurring on the same day of the posted Rwanda news link. The Rwanda-roads post gives an example of Rwanda's poverty between atrocities. … Meanwhile, America boomed. Prosperity prevailed. Interstates were being built. Men were being sent to the moon. Jim Crow after a century had finally been defeated. The U.S. could easily afford the expensive Viet War and the even-more expensive Cold War. Shopping malls were popping up like mushrooms. Jobs were easy to find.
