      The TV news coverage of Vietnam helped change public perception. Now news
      is toned down. Will we again see a picture like the napalmed little girl
      running down a road? Images like this bring home the reality.

      These most definitely. My father was on the Aircraft carrier Sydney that
      took troops over to Vietnam. He came back with horror stories .. including
      that of US troops killing their own people.
