Default Jane Fonda and Vietnam (thoughts?)

I've been working on a paper for English pertaining to a soldier's experience during the Vietnam War (Tim O'Brien: Things They Carried: "On the Rainy River") , and was doing some research on Jane Fonda.

Until now I had no idea how traitorous that woman was. Why is "Hanoi" Fonda still living in the US after siding with the enemy? And for those who aren't familiar with what she did, here's what happened: Jane Fonda toured North Vietnam in 1972, and during that time she got friendly with the enemy and did a broadcast of anti-American propaganda over Radio Hanoi. Fonda also participated in a staged press conference with American servicemen held captive by the Viet Cong. The purpose of was to "prove" that the POWs were not being mistreated by their captors; however years later when POWs were finally able to described their experiences, Fonda called them "hypocrites and liars.

And there are some sites that report she turned down signed papers from POWs who wrote their personal information to give to back to their families in the US. According to snopes.com, that information is suppose to be false, but I'm not buying that.

Ya I saw a documentary on A&E where they were interviewing the POWs, and they said that they mananged to scribble their social security numbers and names on tiny slips of paper. So that when she would shake all there hands they would transfer them to her. One of the other guys said they felt fishy about her so they all decided to act like robots too, as a backup plan. They wanted to look like they were zombified from the abuse of their captures. I really wish I could remember the show....

She's a traitor and really needs to be put to death for her crimes. Her little stunt actually caused the deaths of many American POWs, not to mention the devastating effect her visit to North Vietnam had on the morale of our troops serving in Southeast Asia.

My dad served in Vietnam and he absolutely hates that woman, many other vets have made it one of their missions in life to ensure that her treachery is NEVER forgotten.

What she did was terribly wrong. I can totally understand how those vets after living that nightmare still hold anger and resentment towards her. I thought she did apologize years later ; I know that does not remove or cancel the damage she did at the time. She's had to live with the consequences of her actions and obviously it's something that will follow her through the end of her life.

All of us must be responsible citizens during times of war even when we disagree with those who make the decisions to go to war and the reasons behind it.

Your dad and the other vets have already paid a high price for that war and are still paying; I hope they've been able to find some peace in their hearts and minds, not for anyone else, but for themselves.

I'm with Nate on this. Death. Should have sent her butt to another country to live, revoke her US citizenship, and fire at her if she tries to set foot on American soil again. Or my favoried, good old fashioned shooting squad. Line em up, aim, shoot.

Yeah, it don't get much worse than Fonda in the realm of Hollywerid's left wing loons. She is indeed a traitor and should be in jail.

Well why don't you ask John McCain and the other POW's at the Hanoi what they think of her. If you asked me I think she was flirting awfully close with treason.....I believe in freedom of speech but remember there is a price for that freedom and it comes at the expense of our military to fight for it.

During a 1972 trip to N. Vietnam, Jane Fonda propagandized on behalf of the N. Vietnamese government, declared that American POW's were being treated humanely and condemned U.S. soldiers as "war criminals" and later denounced them as liars for claiming they had been tortured.

^^^^she said this about our soldiers She may apologized for what she did or said, but I truly believe she would still do the same thing today. She caused a lot of problems and to me she is a murderer. She may not have killed anyone personally but a lot of people died over their and even when they came back here some committed suicide because of some of the things Fonda and the other idiots said when they got back like do "not hail the POW's as hero's. because they are hypocrites and liars," that is another quote by Fonda
