Favorite The Vietnamese War Quotes

1. "For more than a decade, the United States had been giving large-scale military aid to the French colonialists, and then to the American-installed but authoritarian South Vietnamese government, to fight nationalists and communists in Vietnam. More than 23,000 U.S. military advisers were there by the end of 1964, occasionally engaging in combat. On the other side of the world, the American public knew and cared little about the guerrilla war. In fact, few knew exactly where Vietnam was. Nevertheless, people were willing to go along when their leaders told them that action was essential to resist communist aggression."

2. "And the Blue Angels are coming back to scare the local population. I remember seeing old Vietnamese women ducking under the benches in Washington Square; they thought they were back in the war."
Author: Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Dit was het moment dat Arthur zich later nog het beste herinnerde, 'het exacte moment', zei hij vijftig jaar later nog, 'dat ik ophield een kind te zijn. Mij werd namelijk duidelijk, exact in die seconde, dat alle mensen die ik kende er niet alleen voor mij waren, maar dat ze een eigen leven hadden, een leven waar ik niets van wist en dat mij ook helemaal niets aanging."
Author: Charles Lewinsky
