The U.S. dropped more bombs on Vietnam than all the bombs dropped on Europe
in WWII combined, and it didn't even slow the Vietnamese people down, they
were that afraid of what happened in Hiroshima.  They willing to lose every
last man, woman and child in defending their homeland, and lost 3 million
of their own people.  Repeat: three million.  Shaking in their boots they
were of our might.
