As citizens in Madison Wsconsin debated the pros and cons of impeachment for President Bush and Vice Presicent Cheney recently, a Vietnamese-American woman rose to speak against impeachment.

“I have been through war more than any of you can imagine,” said Ms. Pham-Remmele.

Recounting her premature birth after her mother fell as the family was fleeing the French in 1948, she proceeded to speak of America’s exit from the Vietnam War as a turning point in world opinion against the United States.

“It’s the part you chose not to look at that should haunt you forever,” Pham-Remmele said.

Saying she had not been home in 34 years and characterizing her decision to become a naturalized U.S. citizen as painful, Pham-Remmele said she knew the atrocities of war.

Looking directly at the spectator gallery, Pham-Remmele said, “It is easy to be like Jane Fonda and walk with the communists … and feel good about it. If you really want to save lives, think of something more concrete.”
