the whole crew eyes what the captain is watching except for Tyrone Jackson. Tyrone is looking at how Captain Kirk keeps sleeping with every woman of color. With that old raggedy dick of his.
Most of the fighting took place in Vietnam, as Nixon unleashed massive airstrikes in neighboring Cambodia. It was kept secret from the American public.
Kissinger said, "You attack locations where you believe people operate who are killing you. You do it in the most limited way possible.
Cambodian bombing deaths
A single B-52 bomber could carry up to 108 bombs, each with 500 pounds of explosives. Hundreds of bombers flew thousands of missions over Cambodia. Based on data from the U.S. Air Force, history professor Ben Kiernan at Yale University reported that from 1969 to 1973, the United States dropped more than 470,000 tons of explosives on Cambodia. Other official estimates put the figure at over 500,000 tons.
Kiernan told PunditFact, based on where the bombs fell, the tonnage, and anecdotal reports, he thinks the truth lies somewhere between 50,000 and 150,000. There is no firm accounting of the civilian deaths that brought. "I believe the actual toll is closer to the upper limit of that range," Kiernan said.
A 1980 CIA report calculated that 600,000 to 700,000 Cambodians lost their lives between 1970 and 1975. ♦
