Run Through The Jungle




life is death in bamboo thickets

death on sandy beaches in curling waves

cobra hovers, head three feet in the air

floating in crystal blue over tropical reefs

mysterious kaleidoscope of rainbow scales

great hammerhead shark surfaces

a killer whale gently nudges the boat

the porpoise joins with a nod and a flip of his tail

one with the dominion of birds

hanging in blue sky at the edge of the void

dream seekers returning to Earth recognize

there is no medicine for the illusion of sanity

and madmen are held accountable for their actions

(excerpt)

"As I ponder the madness of Vietnam and search within for ways to understand and respond with compassion my mind goes constantly to the people of that peninsula.

I speak not of the soldiers of each side, not of the junta in Saigon, but simply of people who have been living under the curse of war for three continuous decades now.

They must see Americans as strange liberators.



Paint it Black - Vietnam War



The Vietnamese people proclaimed their own independence in 1945 after a combined French and Japanese occupation, and before the Communist revolution in China.

They were led by Ho Chi Minh.

Even though they quoted the American Declaration of Independence in their own document of freedom, we refused to recognize them.

Instead, we decided to support France in its reconquest of her former colony.

Our government felt then that the Vietnamese people were not "ready" for independence, and we again fell victim to the deadly Western arrogance.

With that tragic decision we rejected a revolutionary government seeking self-determination, a government established by clearly indigenous forces.

For the peasants this new government meant real land reform.

For 9 years we have denied the people of Vietnam the right of independence.

For 9 years we supported the abortive effort to recolonize Vietnam.

Before the end of the war we were meeting 80% of the French war costs.

Even before the French were defeated at Dien Bien Phu, they began to despair of the reckless action, but we encouraged them with military supplies to continue the war even after they had lost the will to continue.

Soon paying almost the full costs of this tragic attempt at recolonization.

After the French were defeated it looked as if independence and land reform would come again through the Geneva agreements.

But instead there came the US, determined that Ho should not unify the temporarily divided nation, and the peasants watched again as we supported one of the most vicious modern dictators -- our chosen man, Premier Diem.

The peasants watched and cringed as Diem ruthlessly routed out opposition, supported extortionist landlords and refused to discuss reunification.

The peasants watched as American influence and then American troops came to quell the insurgency that Diem's methods had aroused.

The only change came as we increased our troop commitments in support of governments which were singularly corrupt and without popular support.

All the while the people read our leaflets and received regular promises of peace and democracy - and land reform.

Now they languish under our bombs and consider us the real enemy.

They move sadly and apathetically as we herd them off the land of their fathers into concentration camps where minimal social needs are rarely met.

They know they must move or be destroyed by our bombs.

So they go - primarily women and children and the aged.

They watch as we poison their water, as we kill a million acres of their crops.

They weep as the bulldozers roar destroy the precious trees.

They wander into the hospitals, with at least twenty casualties from American firepower for one "Vietcong" inflicted injury.

So far we may have killed a million of them - mostly children.

They wander into the towns and see thousands of the children, homeless, without clothes, running in packs on the streets like animals.

They see the children, degraded by our soldiers as they beg for food.

They see children selling their sisters to soldiers, soliciting for their mothers.

What do the peasants think as we ally ourselves with the landlords and as we refuse to put any action into our many words concerning land reform?

What do they think as we test our latest weapons on them, just as the Germans tested out new medicine and new tortures in Europe?

Where are the roots of the independent Vietnam we claim to be building?

Is it among these voiceless ones?

We destroyed the two most cherished institutions: the family and the village.

We have destroyed their land and their crops.

We have coöperated in the crushing of the nation's only non-Communist revolutionary political force - the Unified Buddhist Church.

We have supported the enemies of the peasants of Saigon.

We have corrupted their women and children and killed their men.

Liberators? Now there is little left to build on - save bitterness.





Soon the only foundations remaining will be found at military bases and in the concrete of the concentration camps we call fortified hamlets.

The peasants wonder if we plan to build our new Vietnam on such grounds.

Could we blame them for such thoughts?

We must speak for them and raise the questions they cannot raise.

For it occurs to me that what we are submitting them to in Vietnam is not simply the brutalizing process that goes on in any war .

We are adding cynicism to the process of death, they must know after a short period none of the things we claim to be fighting for are really involved.

The more sophisticated surely realize that we are on the side of the wealthy and the secure while we create living hell for the poor.



The Animals - We Gotta Get Out Of This Place



This is a symptom of a far deeper malady within the American spirit.

If we ignore this sobering reality we will find ourselves organizing clergy - and laymen - concerned committees for the next generation.

They will be concerned about Guatemala and Peru.

They will be concerned about Thailand and Cambodia.

They will be concerned about Mozambique and South Africa.

We will be marching for these and attending rallies without end.

Such thoughts take us beyond Vietnam, as sons of the living God."- MLK

"I sat in on every Vietnam meeting in which Lyndon Johnson was engaged, from the day of John F. Kennedy's assassination to the day I left.

I know the ebb and flow of Vietnam tides inside the White House." - Jack


November 22, 1963

Jack Valenti, co-founder of advertising and consulting agency Weekly & Valenti, is in charge of press coverage when JFK is assassinated.

Jack Valenti, born in Houston, Texas, began work as an office boy for the Humble Oil, now ExxonMobil.

After the assassination, Jack flew on Air Force One back to Washington as Special Assistant to Lyndon Johnson staying in the White House until 1966.

"I was once a young man, very much like the young men and women who have gone to Iraq and Afghanistan as US military soldiers.

I believed that the United States had a sacred mission to spread democracy.

Vietnam was my generation's war.

It was in Vietnam my journey toward a different kind of knowledge began.

One hot sunny morning in April 1969 I found myself in a small Mekong Vietnamese fishing village that had just been bombed.

I was overwhelmed in grief as I looked into the eyes of young, napalmed, blackened mothers with dead children – hundreds of them.

I gagged witnessing this horrible scenes of carnage." - S. Brian Willson

2007 Jack Valenti publishes "A Very Human President."

"The Government of Vietnam (GVN) lacked legitimacy with the rural peasantry, the largest segment of the population.

The peasantry perceived the GVN to be aloof, corrupt, and inefficient.

The urban elite possessed outward manifestations of a foreign culture.

This small group held most of the wealth and power in a poor nation, and the attitude of the ruling elite toward the rural population was, at best, paternalistic and, at worst, predatory." - Eric Bergerud

Bungle in the Jungle



The Phoenix Program was the collection of intelligence information identifying officials of National Liberation Front.

It was beleived village cell staff function was distributed to:

a general secretary;

social welfare, finance and supply units;

information, culture and proselytizing units.

1968 to 1972

Phoenix Program 'neutralizes' 81,740 National Liberation Front members, of whom 26,369 are assassinated.

"The problem was, how do you find the people on the blacklist?

It's not like you had their address and telephone number.

The normal procedure would be to go into a village and grab someone.

Half the time the people were so afraid they would say anything.

Then a Phoenix team would take the informant, put a sandbag over his head, poke out two holes so he could see, put commo wire around his neck like a long leash, and walk him through the village and say, 'When we go by Nguyen's house scratch your head.'

Then that night Phoenix would come back, knock on the door, and say, 'April Fool, motherfucker.'

Whoever answered the door would get wasted.

As far as they were concerned whoever answered was a Communist, including family members.

Sometimes they'd come back to camp with ears to prove that they killed people." - Lieutenant Vincent Okamoto, intelligence liaison officer for the Phoenix Program, recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross

1971 Mark David Chapman moves to Chicago.

He works for World Vision with Vietnamese refugees in a resettlement camp at Fort Chaffee in Arkansas, after training at the Sabra and Shatilla camps in Lebanon where fascist Phalange massacre Palestinians.



Project 100000

PROJECT 100000

Barry McGuire - Eve Of Destruction

Vietnam War - House of the Rising Sun



November 7, 1967

"PROJECT 100,000 - a program to salvage the poverty-scarred youth of our society at the rate of 100,000 men each year - first for two years of military service, and then for a lifetime of productive activity in civilian society.

Poverty in America pockmarks its victims inwardly.

If unchecked and unreversed, that inner ghetto poverty-scarred personality of these men can fester into explosive frustrations of bitterness and violence.

Chronic failure in school throughout childhood destine them to a downward spiral of defeat in a skill-oriented nation that requires from its manpower tool an increasing index of competence, discipline, and self-confidence.

Their average reading score is a bare sixth-grade level; and 14% of them read at a third-grade level or less.

Many are poorly motivated when they reach us.

They lack initiative.

They lack pride.

They lack ambition.

If nothing were done to give them a strong sense of their own worth and potential, they, their wives and their children would almost inevitably be the unproductive recipients of some form of the dole 10 years from now.

Men, formerly draft rejectees, are termed New Standards men.

The men themselves are never informed that they are in this category.

Hundreds of thousands of men can be salvaged from the blight of poverty, and the DoD - with no detriment whatever to its primary role - is particularly well equipped to salvage them." - Robert McNamara

"Beginning in 1965 and for nearly three years McNamara each year drafted into the military 100,000 young boys whose scores in the mental qualification and aptitude tests were in the lowest quarter - Category IV's.

Men with IQ's of 65 or even lower.

They were, to put it bluntly, mentally deficient. Illiterate.

The young men of Project 100,000 couldn't read.

Training manual comic books were created for them.

They had to be taught to tie their boots.

Statistics say these almost helpless young men died in action in the jungles at a rate three times higher than the average draftee." - Joseph L. Galloway


"McNamara noted a 1965 US decision to seriously escalate the war was due to a North Vietnamese attack on the Pleiku Air Base the day a senior US official arrived in Saigon.

US was determined it could not be humiliated in this way." - Gregory Clark

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
