In the film Hearts and Minds a lot of the footage was to drastic for me. Being that I am very anti war, I can't believe people can be so heart less and hurt women and children. The voices that were most important to me are the voices of the civilians. I feel their voices are the important because they are in the middle of a war that they have no part of but the war is ruining their lives and land. I found the mass grave site very disturbing the way they had all those graves already dug and awaiting dead bodies as if they knew their people were going to die.
I think its not right how they exposed the Vietnam people in the films and photos. However on the other hand i feel that America needed to see the damage they were doing to Vietnam so people in America can try to stop it. I also believe that is why president Bush didn't expose what was going on in the war on Iraq, because he knew that it would cause outrage with anti war groups in America.
I believe that the ideology of power led the United States into war with Vietnam. I feel that America wants every other country to believe that America is the most powerful country. I also feel that America think they can go to other countries and destroy land and then take it over. Basically America need to mind their business in cases where America isn't involved.
