On this episode of Back in the USSR, me and a very special guest are going to talk about the Vietnam War. Why? Because here at Back in the USSR we are very sensitive to the distortion and re-writing of history by the powers that be, and that’s exactly what’s been going on with how the Vietnam War has been portrayed in Western media. And while this certainly isn’t new, some very blatant examples have emerged recently, including a PBS documentary series which we’re going to talk about, that effectively whitewashes what was in fact one of the most horrendous and terrifying atrocities ever committed by an imperial power against a Third World nation in modern history. Tonight, we set the record straight.
Music by Buffy Saint Marie ("The Universal Soldier"), Matt Jones ("Hell no, I ain't gonna go!"), The Covered Wagon Musicians ("Napalm Sticks to Kids"), Donovan ("The Ballad of a Crystal Man"), Ewan MacColl ("Ballad of Ho Chi Minh").
