#2 Absolutely! Also quite effective against Seventh Day Adventists, but sometimes the Later Day Saints are persistent enough to make me resort to my fowling piece.

Punji spikes wouldn't have injured so many people if the yanks had stayed off the main tracks through the jungle :S

Correction #7... Punji spikes wouldn't have injured so many people if the yanks had stayed out of Vietnam.

Wow this is almost as horrific as AGENT ORANGE the United States used during Vietnam.... NOT!! I wonder if they covered that in this little documentary. I highly doubt it.

#8 Yea,and there would have been a lot fewer injured "yanks" if we would have stayed out of Europe in WW2 and let the Nazis and Soviets divide-up the continent between themselves.
At least we were there to try and save the South Vietnamese from the horrors of life under communist control, with help from France, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Laos, and The Philippines. Remember,China and the Soviets were propping-up and supplying the North to further the expansion of communism in Southeast Asia. At least the Vietnamese now have an open market economy.

#16. "...if we would have stayed out of Europe in WW2 and let the Nazis and Soviets divide-up the continent between themselves."

Something which the USA appeared to be perfectly content to see happen, until of course Japan woke them up by bombing the shit out of Pearl Harbour, shortly followed by Hitler declaring war on the USA.

Better late than never eh USA? :|

#17 VerySmallBrain....Yea the Japanese pulled a sneaky one on us,but they paid a terrible price for it.
Hitler declaring war on the US would never have had any effect on America because he had no plans to try invading the country.Just like the Japanese had figured,Hitler saw that invading a country where most of the population is armed would be a mistake. Japan woke up a sleeping giant that crushed them in the end.
"Better late than never eh USA?" still insured that Hitler was defeated,and then, like the coward he was,he shot himself. European appeasement of Hitler starting back in 1938 was a fool's mistake.

#19 sux2butts. Yup. Just as I said bum sucker. The USA happy to see Europe in the shit, and finally turning up late to the party, just in time to take all the glory. The USA; a legend in its own imagination.

#19 VerySmallBrain ...Just what was YOUR country's role in WW2? Run-and-hide?

England would have been defeated in the first year of WW2 if the US had not been supplying them with arms and food. My dad was helping to protect those aid convoys in the North Atlantic starting in 1939 on a Battleship. We were helping way before we were attacked by Japan.

You "sound" very much like 'Godhatesfags' and 'ThisIsMe'.....coincidence?

The human poop on the stick caused more damage than the puncture wound in most cases.
