    blew me away...Some serious karma ...and this quote

    Admiral Zumwalt said he ordered Agent Orange sprayed over the Mekong Delta to kill vegetation and drive ''the Viet Cong back 1,000 yards off the water's edge.''

    In the New York Times Magazine article, the Admiral said: ''Knowing what I now know, I still would have ordered the defoliation to achieve the objectives it did, of reducing casualties. But that does not ease the sorrow I feel for Elmo, or the anguish his illness, and Russell's disability, give me.''

    casualties?   Wow... I think more died from the exposure than the foliage....and hidden dangers of an enemy lurking in the jungle.  
    How does he sleep at night?
