War museum

Weekend I went to the war museum located in Ho Chi Minh City. The things I saw was extremely mind blowing and depressing. The war between America and Vietnam was one of the biggest and most important wars in entire history. So I want to warn you. If you are not good to see these kind of war scenes just jump this post before reading it. I want to share this scenes to show and tell people more about this war.

Haftasonu Ho Chi Minh’de bulunan sava m羹zesini ziyaret ettim. Bu m羹zede g繹rd羹羹m eyler ger癟ekten 癟ok a覺r ve savaa ilgili koca bir tokat gibiydi. Amerika ve Vietnam aras覺nda ge癟en bu uzun sava tarihin en 繹nemli savaar覺ndan biridir. Hem bu y羹zden hem de Vietnam halk覺na duyduum derin sayg覺dan 繹t羹r羹 insanlar覺 da bilin癟lendirmek ad覺na bu m羹zede g繹rd羹klerimin bir k覺sm覺n覺 sizlerle paylamak istiyorum. Ancak bu t羹r sava g繹r羹nt羹lerinden holanmayanlar l羹tfen bu b繹l羹m羹 atlas覺n.

These are the some of American vehicles used in Vietnam war.

Bunlar savata kullan覺lan Amerikan ara癟lar覺ndan baz覺 繹rnekler.

Tanks of USA Military.

Amerikan ordusunun tanklar覺.

Vietnamese posters from war times.

Sava d繹nemi Vietnam posterleri.

War starts in 1955 and ends in 1975. 19 years and 180 days.

Sava 1955′de balay覺p 1975′de sona eriyor. Burada 19 y覺l, 180 g羹n s羹ren bir savatan s繹z ediyoruz.

It is possible to see and discover all kinds of equipment and weapons here which are used in the war.

Savata kullan覺lan t羹m ekipman ve aletleri, silahlar覺 m羹zede g繹rmek m羹mk羹n.

All weapons are catagorized and shown with pictures from war times.

T羹m silahlar katogorize edilmi ve sava zaman覺ndan fotoraflarla birlikte g繹steriliyor.

These are some of the mines used in the war. The ones in left picture is pretty same with ones we used in war games. But war is not good or cool like American movies or games in real life.

Soldaki may覺nlar benim oyunlarda kulland覺klar覺m覺n ayn覺s覺. Keke bu may覺nlar覺 sadece oyunlarda g繹rsek. Sava ger癟ekte Amerikan filmlerinde g繹sterildigi gibi haval覺 bir ey deil.

Known weapons weren’t enough for America and they also used chemical poisons to kill Vietnamese people. One of the most important one was Agent Orange. Agent Orange is the code name for one of theherbicides anddefoliants used by theU.S. military as part of itsherbicidal warfare program,Operation Ranch Hand, during theVietnam War.Vietnam estimates 400,000 people being killed or maimed, and 500,000 children born withbirth defects. You will see the effects of Agent Orange in pictures.

Bilinen silahlar ve ekipmanlar Vietnam’覺 yok etmek i癟in yeterli olmad覺. Amerika t羹m teknojisine ramen Vietnam topraklar覺nda fena hade 癟uvall覺yordu. Vietnam askerleri muhteem gerilla taktikleriyle Amerika’y覺 癟ok zor durumlara d羹羹rd羹ler. Ancak Amerika tarihte baka savalarda da yapt覺覺 gibi gene bel alt覺ndan vurma yoluna gitti ve Vietnam 羹zerinde kimyasal silahlar kulland覺. Bunlar覺n en 羹nl羹s羹 Turuncu Ajan kod ad覺yla bilinen bir t羹r zehirdi. 400.000 Vietnaml覺’n覺n 繹lmesine 500.000 癟ocuun sakat domas覺na neden oldu. Fotoraflarda bu silah覺n yaratt覺覺 etkileri g繹receksiniz.

This war inspired many movies songs and video games. There are hundreds of songs written for this war. But seeing this wars effects with Vietnam’s sight is much more better then seeing it in American movies.

Tarihte II. d羹nya sava覺 ve Vietnam sava覺 kadar hi癟 bir ey bu kadar 癟ok ark覺ya, filme ve oyuna konu olmam覺t覺r. Fakat Amerikan filmlerinin yanl覺 bak覺覺 yerine bu m羹zeyi gezip sava覺n as覺l y羹z羹n羹 繹renmek 癟ok daha iyi.

During the Vietnam War, the United States military sprayed nearly 20,000,000 US gallons (75,700,000 L) of chemical herbicides and defoliants in Vietnam.

Sava boyunca Amerikan ordusu Vietnam 羹zerine 20.000.000 galon (75,700,000 L) kimyasal p羹sk羹rtm羹t羹r. Bug羹n halen baz覺 yerlerde tar覺m yap覺lamamakta hatta 癟imen bile yetimemektedir. Ve halen bir 癟ok insan bu kimyasallar覺n oluturduu yaralar ya da sakatl覺klarla yaamaktad覺r.

Some examples from the effects of Agent Orange.

Turuncu ajan覺n etkilerinden 繹rnekler.

American soldiers were aged between 19 -25. %90 of American were under 23 age old. Many of them joined army just because they had nothing to do else and earn money. And these times America was making huge propaganda campaigns to call young people to army. Being in the army was something special according to these campaigns and many people were entering army to gain respect and proud from other people and family. But they were young and had no idea about war it self. Many of them became mentally defective and suffered. And much more of them killed their self.

Amerikan askerlerinin yalar覺 19 ile 25 aras覺ndayd覺. %90′覺n覺n 23 ya覺n alt覺nda olduu bir Amerikan ordusu vard覺 Vietnam’da. O zamanlar Amerika gen癟 insanlar覺 askeriyeye 癟a覺rmak i癟in b羹y羹k kampanyalar yap覺yor halk覺 ve gen癟leri posterlerle 繹zendiyordu. Askeriye’de olmak, onurlu, erefli ve g羹zel bir eydi. Zaten i bulamayan ve paras覺z kalan gen癟ler toplumda hem sayg覺 hem de para kazanabilmek i癟in askeriyenin yolunu tutuyorlard覺. Fakat evdeki hesap Vietnam’a uymad覺. Bu gen癟lerin bir 癟ou sava ortam覺nda ak覺l sal覺覺n覺 kaybetti. Baz覺lar覺 kendilerini 繹ld羹rerek intihar ettiler.

United states lost 3300 planes and 5000 helicopter in this war.

Amerikan ordusu savata 3300 u癟ak ve 5000 helikopter kaybetti.

American army tortured Vietnamese people very hardly and killed millions of innocent people. Burned villages and killed children.

Amerikan ordusu Vietnam halk覺na b羹y羹k ikenceler uygulad覺. Milyonlarca masum insan ve 癟ocuk ac覺mas覺zca 繹ld羹r羹ld羹.

American casulties and losses: 58,220 dead,1,687 missing,303,635 wounded

South Vietnamcasulties and losses:316,000 dead,1,170,000 wounded

North Vietnamcasulties and losses:1,176,000 dead or missing, 600,000+ wounded

14.300.000 tons of bombs used to Vietnam by United States. And this means 270 kg bomb for each person. This is insane. The biggest size of bomb useage in history.At the end of the war. United states used 7 million bombs in Vietnam and this equals to 300 Atomic bomb which used in Japan in 1945.

Sava boyunca Amerika toplam 14.300.000 bomba kulland覺. Bu da her insan i癟in 270 kilo bomba demek oluyor. T羹m sava tarihinde en 癟ok bombalanan 羹lke olarak Vietnam’a ne desek az kal覺r. Bu insanlar覺n Amerika’n覺n t羹m caniliine ramen 羹lkelerini kurtarmas覺 ve sava覺 kazanmas覺 b羹y羹k bir sayg覺 uyand覺r覺yor bende. Sava覺n sonunda Amerika’n覺n kulland覺覺 7 milyon bomba ise Japonya’ya at覺lan atom bombas覺n覺n 300 tanesine eit bir etkiye sahipmi.

Vietnam war with numbers. No need to write anything. Just read the left picture.

Rakamlarla Vietnam sava覺. Cok bir ey yazmaya gerek yok. Sol fotoraf her eyi anlat覺yor.

These are some samples of American prisons for Vietnamese prisoners.

Vietnaml覺lar覺n tutsak edildii hapishane 繹rnekleri.

Left photo is the back of an American jet fighter. And right photo is a kind of guillotine. Used to kill prisoners.

Solda bir American u癟a覺n覺n arkas覺ndan detay g繹r羹yorsunuz. Sadaki ise bir 癟eit giyotin. Makumlar覺n kafalar覺n覺 koparmak i癟in kullan覺lm覺.
