Forgotten hero: Senator Wayne Morse against war in Vietnam

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Sen. Morse was one of only two Senators (!) who opposed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which authorized  President Johnson to take military action in Vietnam without a declaration of war.

The Tonkin Resolution was the official start of the Vietnam war.

The war brought death to millions of civilians and several hundred thousand soldiers, not to speak of the wounded, the crippeled and the mentally disturbed.

 The Jews are trying to knock you off. They want a new guy in the White House in 1977.

Henry Kissinger
(US Außenminister 1973-77. Gegenüber US Präsident Ford, der aus Sicht Jerusalems eine zu wenig israelfreundliche Politik betrieb.)
