American War Crimes

Americans did commit war crimes in Vietnam. I hate that this happened, but it did.

My LaI was the worst war crime committed by Americans. Up to 500 people were murdered by Lt Calley and members of his unit.  A disgrace. Horrible. Kt Calley has earned a special place in hell.

German historian Bernd Greiner mentions the following war crimes reported, and/or investigated by the Peers Commission and the Vietnam War Crimes Working Group, among other sources:[27]
- Seven massacres officially confirmed by the American side. My Lai (4) and My Khe (4) claimed the largest number of victims with 420 and 90 respectively, and in five other places altogether about 100 civilians were executed.

- Two further massacres were reported by soldiers who had taken part in them, one north of Duc Pho in Quang Ngai Province in the summer of 1968 (14 victims), another in Binh Dinh province on 20 July 1969 (25 victims).
- Tiger Force, a special operations force, murdered hundreds, possibly over a thousand, civilians.
There were other war crimes.  Professor Rummel estimates a total of 6,000 murders were committed by American servicemen.
