(about the Pentagon Papers) " To Summarize seven thousand pages in a few words, the United States controlled and incited the war in Vietnam - and it was a single war, not a series of wars against different regimes -- for nearly twenty-five years. And its motives had always been those of geopolitical empire, never the democratic well-being of Vietnamese citizens." from This Machine Kills Secrets by Andy Greenberg
[The secret memos in the Pentagon Papers] " were saying again and again, when talking about why we were in Vietnam, and why we were interested in Southeast Asia -- they were talking about tin, rubber, and oil ... about the resources of Southeast Asia." Howard Zinn
