Wisconsin Vietnam War Stories. Like Al Sobkowiak:

So I stood up. And just as I stood up, I was looking up the river, and down the river and there was about seven or eight Viet Cong that was on the opposite side of the river. And they jumped out of these little holes that they were buried in. And my guys got online and they started firing like crazy. And we had a good little battle there going, and then the Viet Cong. It went silent. They were gone. They just opened fire and then they’d take off back into the bushes. And I got hit in the legs—once up here and once in here. Three shot holes I got. And my radioman, I told him as soon as we got hit. I says, “Call the command post and tell them we’re getting hit.”

He picked up his radio, was talking, and a bullet went right through here and knocked his two fingers off. And I said, he held his hand up, you know, with no fingers, like this. He says, “I can’t talk.” I said, “Well, use your other hand!” (Laughs.)

So they brought a medevac  plane in, chopper. And then they took us to the battalion aid station and when we got to the battalion aid station the doctor came in a medevac plane there and he says, “Oh, jeez, we can’t have you guys here.” He said, “it’s too serious.” So they took us back to someplace in Da Nang, I have no idea where. And the next thing I know we’s all laying under these big lights. Some doctor had his hand in my leg, you know, and was pulling out shrapnel and bullets or whatever the hell was in there. And then the corpsman came by and he was supposed to finish up debriding, I guess they call it. He had these long tweezers, like. And he was going way in my leg and pulling all that skin out and shrapnel. He said, “You want one of these tweezers to help pull it out?” I said, “Hell no!” (Laughs.) “I don’t even want to look at that.”

So I didn’t want to see nothing. And then the radio guy, I don’t know what happened to his fingers; they were gone. His fingers were gone I know. And I never saw those guys since. I have no idea where they went and whether they lived or died, I don’t know.

So it was kind of a depressing war at the end there, you know—booby traps, more booby traps, more guys getting killed and we couldn’t do nothing. I mean, they bombed the hell out of Hanoi. They bombed the hell out of the Trail. They bombed the hell out of everything. Nothing changed. So you know, the only thing I—as I look back on it, why didn’t we get out four years earlier? Because we won nothing over there. And you’ve kind of got to say that about some of the other little wars we’re getting into. You know you go over there, you expend all these men. For what? You leave and it goes right back to the same. So but now I don’t want to think about it, you know. I’m alive.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
