We will be hearing the word “balance” a great deal with the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick documentary series on VietNam coming up this fall. Question the notion. When a mega power invades a small country and then tells the story, there is no balance. The telling of the dominating perspective is another war (this time for our minds) even when coated with misdirects, niceties and seductions. If you want to arm yourself before listening to the Burns-Novick work read John Marciano’s The American War in Vietnam: Crime or Commemoration or go to the Vets for Peace Full Disclosure site.
