The US Bombed A Country More Than They Did In Germany and Japan Combined During World War II

Over nine years -- from 1964 to 1973 -- the United States dropped more than two million tons of bombs on Laos -- more than they dropped on Germany and Japan combined during all of World War II. It made Laos, per person, the most heavily bombed country in history. As one Laotian said, the “bombs fell like rain.” Villages and entire valleys were obliterated. The ancient Plain of Jars was devastated. Countless civilians were killed.
