King referred to a cruel manipulation of the poor, those youth with education or money were exempt from a war, sending poor youth and minorities into a country and fighting a war they did not understand, fighting for liberty of the people in Vietnam while killing side by side, yet they would not be able to eat in the same room or live on the same block in America.

From the Japanese, French and later American involvement, the Vietnamese have been embroiled in 116 constant years of warfare and oppression, betrayed by the Japanese, betrayed by the French and anticipating and inevitable betrayal from the blatant lies of the U.S.A. King mentions this distrust of the Vietnamese against the United States and how “Hanoi remembers how our leaders refused to tell us the truth about the earlier North Vietnamese overtures for peace, how the president claimed that none existed when they had clearly been made” (King).

War in Somalia and Culture

Sidaas daraadeed, dadka dugsiga dhaleecaynaya ee ku andacoonaya in caruurta dhaqan xumo lagu baro dugsigani waxa ay si toos ah u dhaliilayaan anshaxa iyo asluubta diineed ee ardeydan iyo waalidiintani ay weligoodba ku sifaysnaayeen.
