“In this biggest covert operation in U.S. history, the main goal was to “prevent” pro-Vietnamese forces from gaining control over the area. But the entire operation seemed more like a game, overgrown boys allowed to play, unopposed, their war games, bombing an entire nation into the stone age for more than a decade. The result of that “game” was one of the most brutal genocides in the history of the 20th century.
Some of the most brutal bombing raids were done out of spite, with no planning. When U.S. bombers couldn’t find their targets in Vietnam due to bad weather, they just dumped their load on the Laos countryside, as the airplanes couldn’t land with the bombs on board. After the end of the bombing campaign against North Vietnam, the U.S. military decided to simply use its old bomb arsenal (by dropping it on Laos) accumulated in Southeast Asia, instead of carrying it back home. The value of human lives, of the Lao people, was never taken into consideration.”
