JAMES WEBB ON WHAT HAPPENS when you pull out too soon.

UPDATE: James Webb’s website at JamesWebb.com has some quotes about Vietnam that may embarrass some people today:

“Vietnam should teach us an important lesson. Hanoi [is creating] a collectivist society . . . likely to produce greater welfare and security for its people than any local alternative ever offered, at a cost in freedom that affects a small elite.” — Stanley Hoffman
The New Republic
May 3, 1975

“The greatest gift our country can give the Cambodian people is not guns but peace. And the best way to accomplish that goal is by ending military aid now.” — Rep. Chris Dodd (D., Conn.)
Congressional Record
March 12, 1975

“It is ironic that we are here at a time just before Vietnam is about to be liberated.” — Producer Bert Schneider
Academy Awards
April 8, 1975

To some people, the good guys won in Vietnam. And what happened after, “didn’t happen.”
