Hello there, my name is Kenny Chen, and I am a Vietnam war fanatic. I know it may sound weird to be a “fan”of war. But I don’t look at it, as hundreds or thousands people dyeing , injustice on a global stage etc. I see it as people, engineers, military experts, chemistry industry and simple people joining their forces.
I know comparing to other wars, – Vietnam war is way different. Please don’t see me as inhumane, – I do feel sorry for each and every life lost during the war, – its horrible. For each and every nation involved. The ugliest thing there was obviously – politics. People who are actually making those tragic decisions, – never get hurt, or at least not shot in the face, or burnt with napalm in the middle of the jungle.
Anyways. Let’s see brighter point. I think it’s a phrase from the movie, – but I remember some movie character saying that Vietnam had the best soundtrack of them all. It’s impossible to argue with that. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, hippies, all that. Crazy times. Horrible, and crazy. People were much more savage-like than they are now. Nevertheless we are still animals, and we should never forget that.
Anyways – so I started this blog, because on my spare time from my University Studies (where I study arts in modern media) – I read as much as I can about Vietnam war. If I’ll ever find something interesting (from my point of view, – once again, – these are just opinions of my own, – I’m no scientist, and I don’t want to insult anyone)
