Always find it interesting how Germans like to discuss America’s wars a lot more than they like to discuss their own. I some times wonder why.

Beimami, the web site I was referring to is no longer online :(. It was www.stolenvalor.com, and was set up concurrently with the publication of the book Stolen Valor.

The book itself, however, is still available, and comments about different things mentioned in it can be found on numerous web sites. It is, however, about myths surrounding Vietnam Vets, and not specific events like the "burning" of the village in the photo. (ie: It's about how many of the "Vets" who came out against the Vietnam War were never military, or if military, never went to Vietnam, and things like overblown stats concerning psychological problems, homelessness, etc. These are myths.)

I wish it was still there, but alas it is gone :(. I think it was done partially in response to Kerry running for president last year, and the reaction of several Vietnam Veterans groups against him.

I'll keep looking around, but I'm pretty sure that the Stolen Valor website was it.

In the late spring of 2002 I participated in a Washington meeting about Iraqi WMD. Those present included nearly 20 former inspectors from the UN Special Commission (Unscom), established in 1991 to oversee the elimination of WMD in Iraq.

Wasn't the original inspections regime UNMOVIC? I thought that UNSCOM came later.


They still constantly accuse the government of lying, nefarious undisclosed intentions, and automatically believe every outrageous story of alleged war crimes.

From '93 to '01, not so much. Odd, eh?
