war photography as I haven’t seen it. not even in the movies. and we still lost?

Sometimes I believe I have to be the dumbest person here or else a total masochist or perhaps both.

Why oh why, knowing exactly what I would find, do I continue to read all the bullshit trashy anti-American comments that follow a story like this one.
It’s always the same and still I learn nothing and go back for more.
There has to be some kind of serious malfunction of the brain to allow for that sort of stupidity.  What makes it even worse is, I’m the guy who liked to think he didn’t make the same mistake more than once or 2wice at the most.  Different ones to be sure, but not a repeat of the same.  Of course, these are not mistakes. Are they?  More like self inflicted wounds.

So a note my readers in the USA. Do yourself a favor and just pass on the comments at the end of the article I am posting here. Ignore them.

By ignore comments, I mean those comments at the link below, not the bmews comments. We welcome those even if you don’t agree with some pov you read here.  It’s the damn anti-USA stuff that follows the article itself when you link to the whole story and all of the pix.  So many experts on America all saying the same parrot BS. A pox on them.

Astonishing Vietnam War photos reveal the moment U.S. troops unleashed hell on Viet Cong sniper in hills above an Army camp

By Daily Mail Reporter

A Vietnam War veteran has released incredible night-time photographs he took of American troops opening fire on a Viet Cong sniper who had been firing on a U.S. Army camp.

For more than four decades, photographer James Speed Hensinger kept these incredible photographs to himself, not releasing them to the public until now.

Hensinger was just a 22-year-old paratrooper with the 173rd Airborne Brigade in April 1970 when a Viet Cong sniper began spraying automatic rifle fire on Hensinger’s base in Phu Tai, near the coastal city of Da Nang.

Hensinger set up his Nikon FTN camera to take long exposures to capture the firefight. Each shot includes 15 to 60 seconds of gunfire.

When the Viet Cong sniper began shooting, the Americans unleashed hell.

An M42 self-propelled anti-aircraft gun began pouring cannon and machine gun fire into the hills above the camp.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
