    carl, no I don't think the Strategic Hamlet Program was voluntary. My version would be what LawVol calls Bare Base, except I would do Bare City and put the word out that it was safe,clean, good food,warm beer, no head chopping or car bombing. If you wanted stay there you would have to cooperate.
