PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGE IN LISTSERVER PROCEDURES: EFFECTIVE 11/16/99, A SIMPLE REPLY WILL SEND A MESSAGE TO THE ORIGINATOR OF THIS MESSAGE, AS LISTED ON THE "FROM" LINE OF THE HEADER. A REPLY TO "ALL" WILL SEND YOUR RESPONSE TO THE ENTIRE LIST OF SUBSCRIBERS, AS WELL. Long after modern wars "end," their weapons continue to impact the nations where they are fought. A November 20, 1999 Associated Press story reports that an 81 mm artillery shell exploded last week at the site of a former U.S. base in southern Vietnam, killing six children and a 60-yeard old woman. The article doesn't say whether the ordnance was of U.S. origin. The AP says, "The [Vietnamese] government said recently that 38,248 people were killed by unexploded ordnance in the first 23 years after the end of the war and that there still are 300,000 tones of unexploded ordnance around, about 2 percent of the bomb, land mines and artillery shells fired by U.S. forces during the war."
