Let's start off with a joke I recently heard.
Q: What is the difference between Jane Fonda, George W Bush and Bill Clinton?
A: Jane Fonda's the only one that actually went to Vietnam.
Some Questions. Did not Nixon run on the secret plan to withdraw from Vietnam and won the Presidency? Did not Johnson's plan to escalate troops deployment in the late 1960s result in a huge public disapproval? And did that not all occur before Jane Fonda was involved?
All this leads to one simple issue: That of what do you think of the vietnam war? If one believed that communism had to be stopped at all cost then it would be obvious which side one would be. But if one believed that there are other considerations such as the lives of the civilians, etc then one would take the other position. I believe that the US and to a certain extent the French involvement in Vietnam gave the rest of South East Asia a form of breathing space to develop and thus in a realist policy perspective that served a certain interest. But I am not blind to the fact that the war resulted in many death of civilians in Vietnam and also the impact of the chemical warfare(Agent Orange) is still felt in today's vietnam through the deformities in the people and babies who are borned without eyes or some organs.
Do you know when is it time to let go and not carry all the hatred? It is when the other side's (Vietnam) military fortifications such as its tunnels have become a veritable tourtist attraction.
Furthermore with her involvement and funding of G-CAPP and sending most of the money made from her recent film into the organisation to prevent teen pregnancy and to help those that did get pregnant to complete education and, I think she has done more to help people than many of her detractors have.
PS: I initially misread the title of the thread. I thought it said "Man Sits on Jane Fonda."
and my reaction was, hey this is a family friendly site!
