  • I agree with you--dont agree with the spitting in her face face by the vet, but i saw a tv interview with her less than a year ago--i think it was on Larry King or something and i deduced from her comments she wasn't sorry for what she did in Vietnam--i don't think Jane is sorry one bit. Part of me wants to like her but i think she is just crazy.

  • I can see that you are trying to be fair and balanced about the woman that I am not "fonda" of. Her political views are not the problem, the fact that she took the secretly passed notes from our P.O.W.s and handed them to the prison guards who in turn beat the prisoners severely, is. Now that is a big problem to me and I'm sure many others. Her protest did turn violent for the P.O.W.s. She had to know there would be reprisals.

  • There might have been reprisals to Fonda if she did not pass on the notes -- she was in a tight situation too -- but it was a situation of her own foolish making.

    She was naive and careless, but her intent was compassionate, to end a war -- her brazen efforts only made matters worse.

    Forgive enemies and fools -- nothing irritates them more.
