Details about Oliver Stone's 'My Lai Massacre' movie are below.

 

When is Hollywood going to do a film on the other side of the Vietnam War.  The side that does not highlight the Vietnamese communists as Freedom Fighters and America's military as the enemies of the Vietnamese People.

Someone in Hollywood should do a movie on the Duc Duc Refugee Village massacre.  Let America and the World learn about the "Banging Pots of Duc Duc."    When communists terrorists entered the village of Duc Duc at night, many times the peasants would bang their cooking pots to warn the American Marines that the communist terrorists were in the village. 

      In March 1971, the banging of these cooking pots cost these friends of America their lives and village.

The Massacre of Duc Duc needs to be remembered and learned from, before it is repeated:  Again and Again...
        Jack       
     
       A big puzzle-piece of the Vietnam War is largely unknown.  It is the Massacre of the Duc Duc Refugee Village in the end of March 1971.
     I served and lived (24/7) in the village, under the Marine Corps' Combined Action Program (CAP) and was on the last CAP Team in the village.  We left in August 1970, about eight months before the communists burned the 2,000 home village to ashes.  Having lived and served (24/7) in the village for five months, I personally feel that the Duc Duc Refugee Village was massacred, because the communists wanted to punish the peasants living there.   The reason for this punishment was because for years, the peasants supported the Americans serving in the area.    You can read some articles about the massacre at:   http://www.americans-working-together.com/id222.html  
 
 
What makes this massacre a nice, Vietnam War puzzle-piece is its timing.   
 
These are the two biggest news stories at the time of the Duc Duc Resettlement Village Massacre.
 
  • March 29 - William Calley is found guilty of 22 murders in My Lai massacre and sentenced to life in prison.  He is later pardoned.
  • March 29 -  A Los Angeles, California jury recommends the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers.
  •  
    It was also the period, when John Kerry was appearing on television and radio news shows condemning American men and women, who were fighting for the freedom of the Vietnamese People.  At the time, the American News Media was portraying America's military as village burners and much worse...    (Under this cover, the village was massacred.)
     
    The Massacre of the Duc Duc village was in the American evening news six (6) times.  CBS, NBC and ABC each had it on twice.  (It was never mentioned on evening news again.)  In contrast, the My Lai massacre has been in the news hundreds of times over the years.    (I have proof of this at: http://home.earthlink.net/~duc_duc_massacre   )
     
    I'm hoping that the story of the Duc Duc Massacre gets picked up by today's American News Media.  The massacre fits more today than any other day since the massacre...
     
         I had many Vietnamese friends in the village.  I want them remembered.   And I want the Americans, who died trying to protect all Vietnamese, remembered.
                Sincerely,
            Jack Cunningham

    OLIVER  STONE'S  NEW  MOVIE
    "Pinkville"
    Plot Outline:   Army general William R. Peers (Willis) investigates the My Lai Massacre, an event in which several hundred Vietnamese civilians were killed by U.S. soldiers.

    The question is will his version be about bashing American troops in general or about the actions of  a few irrational soldiers in a nasty war?

    Will the movie be about indicting the American soldier in the current Iraq conflict or about the effects of war on a few misguided soldiers?

    Fasten your seat belts:

    Information on Stone's planned film about My Lai:

    http://article.wn.com/view/2007/08/28/Stone_recruits_Willis_for_My_Lai_massacre_film_g 

       There's some things to be learned from this, and it
    is neither what most people expect nor is it pleasant.
     First, the film will probably gross in the tens of
    millions at lest, probably crack the $100.0 million
    ticket barrier.
      
       Next, a currently shown film, "Journey From the
    Fall," ("Vuot Song" in Viet Namese) has met with
    resounding and pathetic indifference.  Ticket sales as
    of Aug 2007: $634,439.00.  By all accounts however it
    is an incredible movie:

    http://www.ocweekly.com/film/film/after-the-war/24978 

      

    Of course, "Journey" does not wallow in Stone-ian
    masochism and national self-flagellation, is about
    Viet Namese people, based on real life accounts of
    reeducation camp prisoners, written and directed by a
    Viet Namese-American.  It also shows Hanoi's
    communists as barbarian thugs.  Why the lack of
    interest?  One reason: a recent Harris poll discovered
    57% (five-seven) of American people do NOT like
    learning about political issues in other countries.
    This is fine, except they should be banned from voting
    or expressing opinions on current events, Iraq, etc.
      
       Another factor, one even more repulsive: it appears
    that most Americans LIKE being voyeurs, gazing at
    portrayals of American decadance, if not supposed
    imperialistic lunacy, in their film fare.  THEY are
    the ones who want 'body counts.'   That's what the box
    office shows. 

    Check out these two links:

    Vietnam War Movies Grosses
    Vietnam War at the Movies

          Here are ticket revenues for four other movies,
    supposedly about Viet Nam:
    (All revenues adjusted to 2007 dollars, via ticket
    price schedule found in website 'boxofficemojo.com')

         Platoon           $245.7 million
         Apocalypse Now*   $215.9    "
         Hamburger Hill     $23.3    "
         Hanoi Hilton        $1.3    "

    *Referred to by some as 'Apoca-bullsh-t Now'

       First two movies are easily refuted representative
    of history, or in any way an accurate overall
    portrayal of either side of the war.  They are
    essentially propaganda films, designed to emotionally
    manipulate the viewer.  Many Viet Nam veterans and
    Viet Namese-Americans vociferously condemn both
    movies.  These films are not history, but are accepted
    as such by the American public.
     
       Latter two films are much more realistic(Hamburger
    Hill written and directed by Viet Nam veteran) and
    both are honest and accurate within the scope of the
    topic filmed.  "Hanoi Hilton" shows Hanoi's brutish
    torture of U.S. POWs, and does not portray Americans
    as blood-thirsty demons.
      
       Clear pattern: U.S. public is infatuated with what
    must be described as essentially a sado-masochistic
    lust for national self-flagellation.  It does not pay
    to make Viet Nam films UNLESS Americans and South Viet
    Namese, are betrayed as anything but vile, despicable
    vermin and scum.  The movie-going public LIKES this,
    and, as demonstrated by comparative ticket sales,
    WANTS to see how disgusting, putrid, immoral and
    depraved Americans were in Viet Nam.
     
       Most who served in Viet Nam can think of dozens of
    stories that would make great films.  Jack Cunningham,
    a former USMC CAP, has a screenplay about CAPs.  CAProductions is all non-profit.    It
    gathers dust because no producers want a movie that
    portrays Americans as good guys involved in a
    worthwhile cause.  Apparently the U.S. public is of
    the same mindset, and does not WANT to see USMC CAP
    stories which are both incredible and inspiring:

    http://home.earthlink.net/~life_magazine_67/life_mag_004.htm


       
       Why then the strong appeal of "Platoon"?  The
    probable high ticket sales for Stone's My Lai movie?
    It cannot be out of sincere concern for the people of
    SE Asia, or else movies about the Hmong plight could
    be made, using factual and unfortunately current
    information from these people:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1xngfvVN6k&mode=related&search
     =


    Movies depicting plight of these people
    should...should...be popular as they do not lack in
    drama, human suffering, incredible courage, etc.
    After all, the film "Air America" was supposed to be
    about Laos, and it sold a 2007-dollar equivalent of
    $48.3 million in tickets.  Then again it depicted Air
    American pilots as complicit in heroin smuggling and
    other inanities, so it did satisify the present
    American fetish for self-abasement and self-loathing.
    In addition, it didn't waste any time attempting to
    tell the real story of real SE Asian people, for which
    the American public shows no interest.
      
       Perhaps a film showing Montagnard people, facing
    cultural genocide, having their land taken, forbidden
    to allow their children to learn their native
    languages:

    http://www.montagnard-foundation.org/homepage.html

       
       Let's take the gloves off and state forthrightly
    what many Viet Nam, Laos, Cambodia, Thai veterans, and
    people born in these countries say:  the American
    public wants its heroes destroyed and belittled
    because it knows it cannot live up to the character,
    moral fiber, and almost insane examples of courage
    demonstrated by these people.  As one Viet Nam veteran
    said many years ago: "Don't expect Americans to be
    proud of you, because they are not proud of
    themselves."
     
       Oddly enough, the more one peers into the Viet
    Nam-Laos-Cambodia subject, the more one probes through
    the mist and fog of perceptual confusion, the more one
    sees a repugnant view of America.  It is the same
    America that will stand in line to buy tickets for
    Stone's next movie, yet will dismiss any and all
    unpleasant information about the people of Southeast
    Asia, the Montagnards, the Hmong, the Mennonites.
    About the Khmer Krom, the Viet Namese Buddhists, and
    anyone else who will not tolerate being told what to
    do and how to think, have been and are still
    suffering...and dying...because of Hanoi's
    pathologically twisted ideology.  News such as this is
    often cited as "too depressing," presumably
    exonerating the people from doing anything about the
    horrid situation.  Besides, if the Hanoi's perverted
    transgressions are verified as truth, then those who
    opposed Hanoi's ideological druids and de-facto Nazis
    must be deemed 'good guys.'  Lordy, Lordy, we can't
    have that can we? 
      
       Final word: the atrocity, and that's what it was,
    at My Lai cannot and should not be disregarded or
    forgotten or excused.  It was a vile and disgusting
    act.  The perpetrators should still be breaking rocks
    in Leavenworth.  Any and all allied transgressions
    must be on the table for discussion.
       Still, if atrocities are a desired cinema fare,
    perhaps a film is warranted of the 36,000 Viet Namese
    assassinated by the VC/NVA.  There'd be some
    insidiously grotesque 'special effects': people
    impaled on bamboo stakes anus-to-mouth, people burned
    alive, disemboweled, decapitated, or simply shot.  Of
    course if a minute were dedicated to filming each
    assassination, it would produce 300 two-hour films.
    Too long.  Can't sit through it.  A film should be
    made about Dak Son, where 252 Montagnards were
    incinerated by NVA wielding flame throwers:

    http://www.11thcavnam.com/main/dak_son.htm


    Perhaps the massacre at Duc Duc would appeal to movie
    goers:     CAProductions is all non-profit.

    http://home.earthlink.net/~ducducvietnamfriends/duc_duc_021.htm


    But, no, a movie covering these topics would die at
    the box office, if it could even be produced.  The
    reason:  the American public doesn't give a damn,
    doesn't care, doesn't know enough to do either,
    doesn't WANT to, and is content to watch those who did
    care and who did put their ass on the line be defiled
    and besmirched by amoral slugs ready, willing and
    eager to pander to America's low taste, vast chasm of
    ignorance, vacuous morality, and infantile
    voyeurism...if not gutlessness.

       Unless and until Stone or anyone else produces
    movies including this material, their claim of mortal
    sanctity and superiority is a fetid example of
    self-indulgent hypocrity.  It is deceit.  It is a lie.
     It is putrid.  It is a tale of pure hallucinatory
    fantasy, told by those with either no mind, or no
    character, or either.     From:  "Bill Laurie"   <bill_laurie@yahoo.com>
