Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Ooh, see the fire is sweepin’
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Rape, murder yeah!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away yea
The floods is threat’ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I’m gonna fade away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

    Looking at videos of contemporary Vietnam, prosperous and full of international business, beautiful shopping malls, luxury hotels, thriving tourism, what in God's name was that damn war about? Such a waste!

    The testing that happened during this war was a massive bad. Military 'intelligence' knowing how artillery in WW1 failed because of the mud (jungle) you can't bomb your way to victory being just one example. Guerilla warfare maybe had not been seen too much yet. But that given their resources and academy/experience tells me it was led with arrogance and poor leadership.
