I found this article quite insightful. Addressing the first comment, I disagree wholly, for two specific reasons.
First: History matters. An imperialist war, rife with war crimes, has its impact on the home country, and Burge is one expression of it.
Second: Burge's experience as an MP has a devastating evidential bearing on the present case examining his alleged perjury (Burge pleads not guilty) on the claim he had no hand or knowledge of torture under his watch that bears striking similarity to the forms of torture MPs laid down on Vietcong prisoners.
But I repeat myself; history matters. Thank you for the article. The research is of value to the widest audience.
