Shocking yet strangely unsurprising
19 May 2004 | by (Amsterdam, Holland) – See all my reviews

This documentary doesn't have any real footage of the slaughter,yet the stories of the veterans don't leave much to wonder.

What makes it even more a strange documentary is the fact that the My Lai incident (if one can call it like that) has some likeness with the actual Abu Graib abuses in Iraq.The cover up that happened then will happen now,at least that's what I think (BUT DON'T HOPE).

What I don't understand and never will probably is the fact that soldiers actually kill innocents (they know they are that) because a higher ranked officer tells them to.

I'm not gonna talk about the film itself,one has to see it without any knowledge about it. 9/10
