As you can imagine, here in Vietnam they call it the “American War”. Or sometimes the “Resistance War Against America.”
Most of us call it the Vietnam War. It left millions dead, and millions more wounded over a nearly two decades long conflict.
It caused catastrophic medical and environmental damage from over 75 million liters of the cancer-causing Agent Orange courtesy of the Monsanto Corporation.
And of course there’s all the unexploded ordinance that still exists across the countryside here which continues to maim and kill civilians year after year.
