I have a bunch of questions for fonda.
- She claims that her role in vietnam was 'misunderstood'. What is there to misunderstand about saying that america was evil, that the north vietnamese were a indomitable people, that the communists had wiped out things like prostitution, that the troops were lying about being tortured, etc etc?
I mean, its pretty clear, she was against american policy in vietnam, because she was i]in favour of communism. So what is there to misinterpret?
- Why does she think she can hope on the anti-war bandwagon now? The republicans were defeated in november, are bound to loose in 08, and we're clearly leaving iraq. Her input at this point is irrelevant because of the timing, and damaging because of her past actions.
- Why did she tell students at
"a University of Michigan audience of some two thousand students, "If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist." "
- How many fellow americans was she willing to kill in order to bring about the revolution, as noted here:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react."
- Ask her why she did nothing for the two POWs that she met, David Hoffman, who's arm was broken to force him to meet with her on TV, or Abel Kavanaugh? Why didn't she demand their release? Why didn't she demand proper treatment of POWs in exchange for her cooperation?
- Considering what the North Vietnamese did to Vietnam and its people in the decades after the war, does she still support the communist revolution?
- Was General Vo Nguyen Giap, Commander of NVA forces, lying when he said that initially they felt that they had been defeated during the Tet Offensive, but then were emboldened when Cronkite said that it was an american disaster? If he wasn't a liar, then how much did her own actions further encourage the North Vietnamese? Was she hoping that they would be encouraged? If no, why, since she was saying that we need a global communist revolution?
- Why did she call returning soldiers after the war "military careerists and professional killers"?
- Why did she make an audio recording for the NVA to play to what she called 'american detainees', and why did she attack them in that recording, calling them criminals?
