    I think that your experience in Vietnam must have been horrible. I believe that all death is a filthy waste. I would like to say that I greave for everyone cut down untimely, but I have a hard time greaving for terrorists and a harder time greaving for those who make war with other people's lives. I do greave for all those driven to horrible acts by the horror of their own situation. Bearing my part of the responsibility for the evil of our age is not a new experience. I have not been focused enough. I did not work long enough or hard enough. Sometimes I am consoled by the idea that my work in applied physics has helped others, but not often. As to the monster, Pol Pot, reading Cambodian history you might find other causes. The Vietnamese "re-education camps" followed the war. They did not precede the war, and they were no part of our motivation for beginning it. The testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee during the Truman administration makes clear our intention to surround China with military bases and invade when the moment was right. Our involvement in the French Indo-Chinese War, was that our concern with the French economy trumped our concern with the lives of those Asian non-caucasions. We both would do everything in our power to prevent ethnic cleansing. Since ethnic cleansing is out, and since Israel has paid a terrible price for attempting to incorporate the territories, the only course open to us is to pursue a negotiated peace.
