April 30, 1975. End of the American Empire

Every Picture Tells a Story – Special Edition.

The historic moment when the America made its final inglorious exit after waging an unjust and genocidal war against the Vietnamese people. As many predicted during the long war, America was chased out of Vietnam from the Embassy rooftop. 44 years later there is nothing commemorating the day in the mainstream American media. Another example of America exorcising its history of oppression against Third World peoples.
