"Legislation such as this demands heavy-handed governmental action against American citizens where no crime has been committed.

The Power Elite Playbook: Bankers & Their Bombers

by Deanna Spingola

Much has been written about America's war in Viet Nam, another small, distant, non-threatening, resource-rich third world country.
