Sydney Schanberg on Wars and Politics

Sydney Schanberg certainly is talking from experience when it comes to war. He was in Vietnam and Cambodia. The award-wining movie, The Killing Fields, is based on the true story of Sydney Schanberg, a New York Times reporter at the time, and Dith Pran, a Cambodian journalist who worked as an interpreter for Shanberg, in Cambodia during the time directly preceding the rise of Pol Pot to power in Cambodia. Dith Pran was trapped in the nightmare of Cambodian genocide, while Shanberg spent years trying to save his friend's life.

Here is what Mr Schanberg has to say about how Vietnam relates to the current events,- both in Iraq and in the US. I think it is definitely worth a read.
