the green style might fit to Central America, but it has not enough clouds. So guessing: North America.

My observation is that the area looks like wet lands/swampy except the area to the south that is largely forested. For the area to be forested the wetlands must be highly productive which too me suggests rice production. This makes my guess SE Asia, Vietnam or Cambodia.

Okay, I'm coming nearer... the light grey/brown areas are freshly plowed acres... typical for USA google-maps (Virginia)...

I have no idea. Winding rover... farm fields... subdivisions here and there...

All I can say is that when Google has an old satellite image such as this, the area is not of much importance.

Is this even a satellite shot from Google?

Flat terrain, a lot of villages, great dark green zones. Maybe Mexico or Brazil?

Seems to be a very hard one for you guys ;)

Right another hint maybe that this might help you guys.

"I think of it more or less as a mercy killing because somebody else would have killed him in the end, but it wasn't right"

Hope this one helps you guys.

Cheers Buck

I think that I got it. This is the place of the My Lai masacre, in Vietnam.
It was the mass murder conducted by a unit of the U.S. Army on March 16, 1968 of 347 to 504 unarmed citizens in South Vietnam, all of whom were civilians and a majority of whom were women, children, and elderly people.
Many of the victims were sexually abused, beaten, tortured, and some of the bodies were found mutilated. The massacre took place in the hamlets of M? Lai and My Khe of S?n M? village during the Vietnam War. While 26 US soldiers were initially charged with criminal offenses for their actions at My Lai, only William Calley was convicted. He served only three years of an original life sentence, while on house arrest.

Bye.

Hey Lestayo,

You got it right. It is indeed my lai. The photo wasn't a very good one but it is the best one there is.
I first came accros this 'event' during our spirtual education wich we have to attend to in the army. It showed us a report on this action. It was focussed on the US troops whom took part in the murder. telling their point of view. how they where dragged along in to this and how senior officers behaved around this all... I found it staggering how easily troops where drawn in to this kind of behaviour... and especially the the behaviour of the commander on scene.

Following a link to the UK wikipedia page...

Congrats Lestayo.

Oh I forgot to add something. I'm also very much impressed by the story of Hugh Thompson and his aircrew. they intervened when the noticed that they where eyewitnesses of a mass murder.
