This guy. This guy deserves all the medals…this is a REAL hero. This is the kind of person I want my sons to idolize. Not some athlete, or pop musician or movie star. THIS man is a real honest to God role model. God bless him and those like him.
Cluster bombs along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, in Attapeu Province, Laos. The pipes containing the cluster bombs have been packed with C-4 explosive, and will finally be detonated, 45 years after they were dropped.
The Plain of Jars, Laos, 500 BCE to 500 CE. Hewn stone jars vary from 1 to 3 metres over 90 sites. During the Vietnam and the Secret Wars in Cambodia and Laos, the U.S. dropped an incredible 260 million bombs on neutral Laos, more than all of World War II. Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) has killed at least 20,000 since the war, mostly children attracted to the toy-like clusters. (Archaeologists are inhibited in research, of course. rw)
