An absolutely agreeable point, but will you accept the amendment "We must also make
it clear that while we have no interest in promoting or explaining away such a
policy, we also are clear that it is not a weapon to be used against the PRC, most
likely by the very creators and only users of Agent Orange, et al"?

To me, the totality of such a critique is that it is "a contradiction among the
people", within the ranks of "us"- and that our opposition be total yet our attacks
not become attacks on the government as such. At least not in the vein of dismantling
the CPC.

Agreed.

This land where such attention is paid to all members of society is, once again,
Cuba. Beacon of hope for us all.
