"But is that really the case? Those vaunted studies that you so eagerly appeal to, proving the innocuousness of, say, anti-depressants- are you a medical doctor, able to confirm these results first-hand? Are you knowledgeable in pharmaceutics? Can you personally attest to the good character of the people who conducted said study? "

The assassinations of the Kennedys put the message across loud and clear to every single politician wanting to follow in their footsteps:

We here in the United States - not just the United States government, not just the commanders of and forces in South Vietnam, the United States government and every human being that's in this room - we are part of that decision and I don't think that we need do that any longer and I think we should change our policy.
I don't want to be part of a government, I don't want to be part of the United States, I don't want to be part of the American people, and have them write of us as they wrote of Rome: "They made a desert and they called it peace."
I think that we should go to the negotiating table, and I think we should take the steps to go to the negotiating table.
