An American Traitor : Guilty As Charged

 

J’ai récemment lu un article daté du 10 juin 2005, sur le Site de FrontPageMagazine.com, rédigé parHenry Mark Holzer et Erika Holzer, intitulé « An American Traitor : Guilty As Charged », au terme duquel j’ai l’impression que certains Américains n’en n'ont pas fini avec la guerre du Vietnam !

 

En voici un extrait (en anglais) :

 

The Vietnamese people were peasants—leading a peaceful, bucolic life before the Americans came to destroy Vietnam.

 

The Vietnamese seek only “freedom and independence”—which the United States wants to prevent them from having.

 

The Vietnamese fighters are her “friends.”

 

The million infantry troops which the United States put into Vietnam, and the Vietnamization program, have failed.

 

The United States seeks to turn Vietnam into a “neocolony.”

 

Patrick Henry’s slogan “liberty or death” was not very different from Ho Chi Minh’s “Nothing is more valuable than independence and freedom.”

 

Nixon violated the 1954 Geneva Accords.

 

Vietnam is “one nation, one country.”

 

The Communists’ proposal for ending the war is “fair, sensible, reasonable and humanitarian.”

 

The United States must get out of South Vietnam and “cease its support for the . . . Thieu regime.”

 

“I want to publicly accuse Nixon here of being a new-type Hitler whose crimes are being unveiled.”

 

“The Vietnamese people will win.”

 

“Nixon is continuing to risk your [American pilots’] lives and the lives of the American prisoners of war . . . in a last desperate gamble to keep his office come November.  How does it feel to be used as pawns?  You may be shot down, you may perhaps even be killed, but for what, and for whom?”

 

Nixon “defiles our flag and all that it stands for in the eyes of the entire world.”

 

“Knowing who was doing the lying, should you then allow these same people and some liars to define for you who your enemy is?”

 

American troops are fighting for ESSO, Shell and Coca-Cola.

 

“Should we be fighting on the side of the people who are, who are murdering innocent people, should we be trying to defend a government in Saigon which is putting in jail tens of thousands of people into the tiger cages, beating them, torturing them . . . . And I don’t think . . . that we should be risking our lives or fighting to defend that kind of government.”

 

“We . . . have a common enemy—U. S. imperialism.”

 

“We thank you [the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese] for your brave and heroic fight.”

 

“Nixon’s aggression against Vietnam is a racist aggression [and] the American war in Vietnam is a racist war, a white man’s war.”

 

Soldiers of the South Vietnamese army “are being sent to fight a war that is not in your interests but is in the interests of the small handful of people who have gotten rich and hope to get richer off this war and the turning of your country into a neocolony of the United States.”

 

“The only way to end the war is for the United States to withdraw all its troops, all its airplanes, its bombs, its generals, its CIA advisors and to stop the support of the . . .  regime in Saigon . . . .”

 

“There is only one way to stop Richard Nixon from committing mass genocide in the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, and that is for a mass protest . . . to expose his crimes . . . .”

 

“In 1969—1970 the desertions in the American army tripled.  The desertions of the U.S. soldiers almost equaled the desertions from the ARVN army . . . .”

 

American soldiers in Vietnam discovered “that their officers were incompetent, usually drunk . . . .”

 

“Perhaps the soldiers . . . who have suffered the most . . . [are] the black soldiers, the brown soldiers, and the red and Asian soldiers.”

 

Recently I talked to “a great many of these guys and they all expressed their recognition of the fact that this is a white man’s war, a white businessman’s war, that they don’t feel it’s their place to kill other people of color when at home they themselves are oppressed and prevented from determining their own lives.”

 

“I heard horrifying stories about the treatment of women in the U.S. military.  So many women said to me that one of the first things that happens to them when they enter the service is that they are taken to see the company psychiatrist and they are given a little lecture which is made very clear to them that they are there to service the men.”
