Kissinger and Vietnam

April 14, 1985

In a fit of nostalgia Kissinger says, "To have striven to prevent such horror (Vietnam suffering) is no shame." The shame is to forget that much of that suffering was caused by us at the direction of leaders like Kissinger.

Remember the body counts of our killings that rose to a total of 2 million? Imagine the attendant suffering. It took Kissinger 10 years to face the fact that we were in a no-win situation. If the public had not forced him and the other leaders to pull us out we would still be in that mess that is over there today, killing millions and spending billions for Kissinger's noble cause.
