Winding Down the War?

While the Nixon administration insists that it is winding down the Indochina war, figures released by the Defense Department this week indicated that the most intensive seven days of bombing in the war's history took place last week.

During the seven day period which ended on Tuesday morning, approximately 12 million pounds of explosives were dropped on South Vietnam alone. This figure does not include the bombs which were dropped on Laos, Cambodia or North Vietnam.

The amount of explosives dropped by US planes just in South Vietnam last week amounted to more than half a pound of TNT for every living person in South Vietnam :: Earth News
