I agree, it's past time for an apology, but I don't think the communists will apologize.

Has he talked to the Vietnamese who fled Vietnam and now live in the U.S. and many other countries? Why wait for governments when one-on-one apologies are sooo much better.

I always enjoyed Puff when it was circling over head saving my butt, of course Peter won't know about this cause he had other things to worry about then.

Not sorry. PROUD.

Should have killed more enemy, if Johnson had allowed it. He was too busy building urban welfare ghettos back home.

"...longtime peace activist Peter Yarrow says it's about time that America apologizes."

Oh. I guess they must'a forgot that CONVICTED PEDOPHILE is also a part of peaceful Peter's profile. Never mind.

I agree.

Time the hippies apologize for 40 years of betrayal against their country. Time they apologize to the people of Vietnam for allowing the Communists to win that led to massacres. Time they apologize to Americans for prolonging a war that could have been won with less bloodshed had they supported their own country. Time they apologize for trying to bring the same defeat in every conflict since.

I will disagree on what it will take to heal the wounds of Vietnam. The only way those wounds are healed is when the hippie generation leaves this Earth.

It's been 30 years since the last bombs fell during the Vietnam War, and longtime peace activist Peter Yarrow says it's about time that America apologizes.

Indeed.

The Democrats in Congress at the time do owe an apology to the hundreds of thousands of innocent people who died because they betrayed our promises of aid to South Vietnam.

I ain't apologizing to any of them and I will oppose any tax dollars going there too. Let the hippies apologize. They were the cause of much of the damage to both sides by encouraging the North to keep fighting after they were deciding to quit. Screw 'em!!

Our mission in Nam was totally justified. Halting the spread of the false Communist "gospel" was a sacred mission in and of itself, which could have yielded for the Vietnamese people even mere "worldly" benefits, for example: freedom of press, speech, religion, property, and so on.

Karl Marx was wrong. The Viet Cong were wrong. Marxist sympathizers in the U.S. are wrong, and always have been.

They need to apologize for holding to an ideology which killed more in its name since 1917 than ANY OTHER thus far (not letting any of the others off the hook, either...). That's one hell of a "brand management" issue, huh?

Anyone who is a Marxist today is a potential future NKVD officer who wants to take your farm, seize your property and put a bullet in the back of your skull.

No apologies are owed, none.

I'm still waiting for people like Peter to apologize to me for treating me like crap when I came home from fighting that he was probably too cowardly to do.

ince you should only apologize for your own mistakes, my first thought was that he was going to apologize for helping to push the U.S. to abandon the South Vietnamese.

The singer-songwriter from the 1960s folk group Peter, Paul and Mary has grown gray, but his passion to fight for those affected by the war remains fervent.

Ask the Left explain Pol Pot. How about the Shining Path? How about the oh-so wonderful deeds of the FARC? What about the misdeeds of the Sandanistas? Or the stellar human rights record of North Korea and China? I'm sensing a pattern here .... oops

Tell the Left to stick THAT track record in their litte coat pocket. To even think that Kerry is "one of them" is really .....

Quite Scary

He just needs to shut up and sing. Guess all the atrocities that were committed by the Vietnamese on the Americans don't need an apology.

"I wonder if he will apologize to the thousands killed by the Communists "

I know you meant to type in "millions".

And the leftist marxist usefull idiots like Yarrow and the NY Times should all be tried and prosecuting for aiding and abetting the genocide of 100 million in the last century.

Had the Dems bombed Haiphong as did Nixon, we could have saved 40,000 lives and sopped the communists alot quicker.

Great minds think alike (see my simultaneous post just below yours). I'm certain it was Pete--but was it boys? My memory is girls.

Although he hangs out, and seems in agreement, with those two leftists, Paul is an avowed Christian and I am unaware of scandal in his past.

I just looked at my article file. Seems he did three months in jail in 1970 for taking 'immoral liberties' with a 14 year old girl. Sounds like a role model for America's youth to me.

I am guessing Old Petey doesn't know that we used to call one of our Gunships "Puff the Magic Dragon" because of the Puffs the Gatling gun made laid down a variety of ordinance as close as every 4 square inches.
