Tuesday, May 10th
"From 1964 to 1972, the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the history of the world made a maximum military effort, with everything short of atomic bombs, to defeat a nationalist revolutionary movement in a tiny, peasant country- and failed. When the United States fought in Vietnam, it was organized modern technology versus organized human beings, and the human beings won.
In the course of that war, there developed in the US the greatest antiwar movement the nation had ever experienced; a movement that played a critical part in bringing the war to an end. It was another startling fact of the sixties."
