B-52 Bomber debris displayed in War Museum in Hanoi.

I was deeply moved when I visited this war Museum. The first thing that goes through our heads when we hear about Vietnam is the bloody war. This war museum has preserved all the stories of hardships that the Vietnamese people went through, the atrocities carried out by their enemies and the glories of Viet-Cong warriors during the war. From the freedom-war with French troops to the fierce battle with American GIs, this museum tells every story. It has a huge collection of simple weapons used by Viet-Cong warriors to the sophisticated weapons they seized from their enemies. During the war with US, Viet-Cong soldiers were able to bring down the B-52 US bomber using very simple missiles. The debris of the B-52 bomber is displayed proudly in the museum courtyard along with the small missiles used by the Vietnamese soldiers.

I wished that all the warmongers of our time visit this museum and learn from the sorrows of war displayed in this museum. Did America learn anything from the Vietnam war ?
