Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for October 01, 1974
Man: A weapons loan?! Are you kidding? How many times do I have to tell you people - we don't finance insurgency! Money's toot tight and you guys are too crazy! Phred: But you don't understand - this is important! Without weapons there can be no revolution! Without a revolution, there can be no restoration of the proper order, no restoration of human dignity to our citizenry! It's not me you're hurting - it's the Vietnamese people! You see, I have a dream. Man: Wonderful. That and ten cents will get you a bowl of rice.
