War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

 

The Lockheed MC-130H Aircraft was frequently used on “training exercises” over Vieques.

For over 60 years the MC-130H and other US weapons systems, dropped 5 million pounds of explosive ordnance per year, on the island of Vieques.

  1. Why did they have to drop explosives in the Caribbean. There is so much beauty there, incredible beauty, coral reefs, dolphin, etc they destroyed it.
    Why did they not go to the desert in the USA, to do that.
    They preferred to destroy someone else home.
