According to Fortune magazine, Starbucks "has changed everything...from our tastes to our language to the face of Main Street."

    On the early morning of March 16, 1968, American soldiers from three platoons of Charlie Company entered a group of hamlets located in the Son Tinh district of South Vietnam, located near the Demilitarized Zone and known as "Pinkville" because of the high level of Vietcong infiltration. The soldiers, many still teenagers who had been in the country for three months, were on a "search and destroy" mission. Three hours after the GIs entered the hamlets, more than 500 unarmed villagers lay dead, killed in cold blood.

    Howard Jones provides a concise, incisive, and dramatic account of the disastrous attempt to overthrow Castro in April 1961. Drawing on recently declassified CIA documents, Jones deftly examines the train of missteps and self-deceptions that led to the invasion of U.S.-trained exiles at the Bay of Pigs. Ignoring warnings from the ambassador to Cuba, the Eisenhower administration put in motion an operation that proved nearly unstoppable, even after the inauguration of John F. Kennedy.

    Fifty years ago this week, on March 16, 1968, around 200 U.S. soldiers from Charlie and Bravo companies burst into a Communist-dominated area in South Vietnam known to GIs as “Pinkville.” In less than four hours, more than 500 Vietnamese civilians — including elderly men, women and children — were dead in the villages of My Lai 4, Binh Tay, Binh Dong and My Khe 4.

    "The Lessons of My Lai Still Resonate" is from the March 16, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Howard Jones and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
