But by reading them again and again finally I was able to grasp the essential part. What emotion, enthusiasm, enlightenment and confidence they communicated to me! I wept for joy.
I only follow one party: the Vietnamese party.
The Vietnamese people deeply love independence, freedom and peace. But in the face of United States aggression they have risen up, united as one man.
It was patriotism, not communism, that inspired me.
The object of my relationship with Vietnam has been to heal the wounds that exist, particularly among our veterans, and to move forward with a positive relationship,… Apparently some in the Vietnamese government don’t want to do that and that’s their decision.
You will kill 10 of our men, and we will kill 1 of yours, and in the end it will be you who tire of it.
Love other human beings as you would love yourself.
