to painfully aware but this our should be controlled united states should be
01:04.850
...you feel american our is controlled or used with
01:06.900
restraint in vietnam.
01:11.310
As of now, ...
01:15.580
I don't want to engage in your domestic dispute and I'm not a general
01:22.680
...mature nation.
01:24.460
Yes, I would like.
01:32.290
To see a great deal more portion more selective exercise
01:39.010
...enormous range of weapons ...you've got and.
01:43.270
More ...and feet preferably ...vietnamese brains and
01:48.440
...rather than mall the our and gadgets
01:51.030
To be more specific north vietnam
01:55.580
is less than one-fourth the size of texas ...being bombed
01:59.900
...bombing was carried on in world war two and
02:05.100
as being found has been ...for almost three years how do you believe that this bombing as
02:10.679
controlled are ...use of our.
02:14.499
That's like asking me rather stop beating my wife and
02:17.399
I would never beat my wife.
02:20.509
Well, let me ask you this forty-seven head
02:24.059
...in the united nations ...foreign ministers
02:28.549
...in this general assembly american bombing of north vietnam should be ended
02:33.510
...like do you agree with that but depends who the forty-seven head
02:39.010
of and I'm sure not in-home africa from a show from western europe
02:43.770
...linear ...from all over the world ...I understand it the about what a
02:49.780
...twenty members hundred ...to member so that forty-seven.
02:53.880
When I wasn't there but I mean my colleague chris roger avm
03:00.720
prime minister is attending the united nations and I think
03:02.750
...to say something on ...
03:06.840
...on the bumping and the or the other problems about
03:13.030
vietnam and I think bumming is one of the minor problems about that.
03:19.050
What if I may ...that he said it is a bothersome question?
03:26.360
...you feel the bombing should be stuff with this helped to get ...the conference table?
03:30.170
I think ...could be reduced and even staff
03:34.780
without any decisive change in the course of the wall.
03:38.730
But, I think it does not follow that because you stop being you'll have
03:43.070
a north vietnamese government to the conference stable why should they go
03:47.780
to conference table to help president johnson when the elections they love him,
03:52.170
you know, most of ...said that the helped president kennedy win by not
03:58.790
seeing this direction another where are you saying that if the vietnamese
04:03.260
north vietnamese should come to the conference table and there would via of settlement
04:07.490
...president johnson ...win the next election and by the same token
04:12.010
let he lose it there's not a peace settlement I don't think is a some ...that I've
04:18.300
you're putting words in you're putting hallmark was instructor ...and,
04:20.190
I think imprecise
04:25.080
...really because the world is not-so-simple is not black and white.
04:30.770
If they worth ...dot bombay or you ...stop bombing and if
04:35.280
...to meet with the of ...
04:39.290
It doesn't mean that ...would be a settlement before the
04:44.680
...table for your presidential election and things can
04:49.020
become very complicated ...with worth so I really don't want to go into
04:52.930
all the intricacies because it can take so many ...on one
04:59.890
gone did so on I would like to say as an outside is.
05:02.100
...we all in the name of
05:06.940
humanity and for the sake of human civilization take ...care?
05:10.730
But, there is known miscalculation on the
05:14.200
reactions not only of the north vietnamese but of the

russians and of the chinese because there must
05:22.530

06:22.860
and scramble the whole lot of us in southeast asia what have you been back
06:33.620
...scramble the whole lot of ...one of the problems in southeast asia.
06:36.000
Consists of relatively
06:40.840
new and fragile independent nations have just become
06:45.250
independent since the second world war.
06:52.220
And, the great problem there's the will to ...
06:56.790
and it melts very easily because people.
07:00.120
Particularly in the world over they want to be on the winning,
07:02.710
winning side but in southeast asia.
07:05.720
...for countries because big
07:10.800
...come europeans came that japanese game, you know, you've been with the
07:17.880
win like the bamboo has a chinese saying goes and if it looks as if.
07:20.210
The east win is growing stronger than the
07:24.700
...been then people start bending that away even before the wind comes.
07:25.130
What you're
07:30.640
...if I understand is that the american position ...and resistant to this east
07:35.750
wind is essential to give your country and
07:40.290
the other newly independent countries a eight-ball work behind which you can develop
07:45.130
your independent is that what you mean man see what I mean myself in my own form of
07:50.990
words I think americans have I think is a friendly habit of trying to help a person
07:58.420
think for themselves but I'd rather do my own the composition ...by may?
08:03.760
You'll have adopted this position in vietnam.
08:05.630
In nineteen fifty four you
08:12.360
...never off the rest of southeast asia and we were not constructive.
08:15.910
...decided again in nineteen fifty six.
08:17.530
That D.
08:20.820
Should not have pre-election because?
08:24.630
...he didn't ...free elections and you support them because elections can be
08:27.410
...I've read all the semantics about what is B and
08:31.700
...you decided in nineteen sixty one.
08:35.200
When things brought a little bit difficult ...you have to put in america
08:39.720
advisors advised nineteen sixty three you at the end of sixty-two ...
08:45.610
at twenty five thousand american advisors in the kennedy administration
08:51.390
if you have your ...john's when diem?
08:56.100
Got knocked down by a bus so perhaps it was a tank.
09:00.110
And, you could have got out and set the ...about what how view
09:04.730
gotten prove uniform pay for the troops.
09:10.580
...decided rightly or wrongly go ahead and now this is nineteen sixty
09:15.520
seven and there's no use asking me now from my opinion what
09:19.560
you should have done before all I can says?
09:23.110
We've got the ...with the day.
09:29.660
worth what might have been day before yesterday as of today.
09:33.280
...of thailand says ...
09:38.340
...a saying it ...own people.
09:40.610
They are going to fight in vietnam not in thailand.
09:44.490
But, I take that to mean.
09:47.860
But, if that is gone he's going to anticipate history and,
09:52.370
you know, the size of this great sense ...
09:59.180
The future and, as good ...of history of they make
10:04.270
kind of adjustments ...postures arising out of
10:10.580
what they think it's a failure in vietnam well I don't think the konkle.
10:13.920
In ...malay shows got very many ...
10:18.160
...of all his stuff forces and then
10:21.620
we have got made by the ...
10:23.220
Was the topic.
10:27.810
Well, if I ...again do it my predecessor here I've done recall speech
10:32.990
you've made mheatco you said the vietnam experience show that however math of
10:38.750
the military cover however enormous economic assistance if the leaders of the people
10:42.350
and whose name and was behalf military cover ...economic
10:47.010
...of being given do not set up to secure their own salvation the
10:52.930
end result still is pre-addition both with the help of a ...
10:57.700
...an asian do you think the ...the helping themselves enough
11:04.610
...we here in the united states headed ...with our allies.
11:09.710
All ...you're asking near very difficult question I'm not making.
11:14.380
Any direct contribution in vietnam and I think if I were
11:19.300
a north vietnamese ...present the prime minister of singapore
11:23.590
passing judgment on the effort of ...
11:28.320
Software that means but I think they wouldn't mind my saying that
11:34.390
What will be a much better place is not mr rusk explaining
11:40.230
what ...all about but either the president ...vice president of
11:45.010
...is still a new figure in a prime minister, you
11:53.760
know, you forward-looking south vietnam forward-looking?
11:56.230
And, most importantly sincere.
12:00.220
And, honest.
12:04.200
The ...if I may shift a little here.
12:06.360
One of the questions in our mind here
12:11.600
...that about the future of china and its relationship
12:16.660
to southeast asia some people are saying that china is now so divided
12:22.140
politically that there is no great danger without the stage in the future
12:25.920
...of the chinese to understand china.
12:30.690
Can you make an estimate or guess ...to the future of china ...
12:35.430
thank in the near future it will become again a unify the country
12:40.390
I strongly unify country that might represent some kind of a danger to southeast asia
12:45.690
of personal icon speak as a chinese programs ...a singaporean I'm
12:50.370
a chinese ethnics ...I mean if you ask me this because the chinese
12:55.270
...to you know, the chinese peoples republic in ...
13:00.730
would be I think ...so one of the other
13:05.310
aspire and anti piggy but speaking as a singaporean ...
13:08.670
...of the built in memory?
13:14.120
Programming off the chinese people I would say that if you
13:18.600
believe that the chinese people ...just printer up into so many warlord
13:23.550
ominous committees each governing a ...or even part of a provincetown you
13:28.650
...one of the graveyards the mistakes the above ...
13:31.310
I think I.
13:35.860
...travel around the roads off and then you know, people don't know that I come from singapore and
13:39.470
be treat me ...as a chinese ...china and india
13:44.450
...used to call him and the issues ...paycheck, you know,
13:47.580
and, in the middle for jews and
13:52.700
...across ...prior to that they are determined
13:57.670
...of people unify and bid a modern.
13:58.170
Powerful.
14:00.840
Wealthy.
14:03.790
Chinese nation and I say good luck to them.
14:06.680
And, I think the moment they get prosperous.
14:10.160
Good luck to me because.
14:13.080
Of the much safer I don't believe however,
14:17.920
you know, the simple theory that they're just going to send the army's across and a
14:19.830
...ages ...simple
14:26.720
...is too simple for you for the americans and for us because then is naked
14:29.620
...the whole of south issue with
14:32.310
...together and meat an incoming invader?
14:36.810
Budget they've got this make it yourself kind of revolution
14:39.780
...of national liberation, you know,
14:45.750
...the ...we've got an instructor teach you how to organize and ...
14:47.220
...you've, you've gotten and
14:53.780
more of necessary and it gets more difficult of surface-to-air ...
14:56.800
So, on and I think this is the problem that each of
15:02.350
the individual government in that region must use that time that you ...
15:05.480
...in south vietnam for the rest of the
15:09.730
world particularly south east asia ...not ...doing ...you know,
15:16.210
just for southeast asia ...doing this for yourself but ...so happens that I think I.
15:20.400
The believe that it might get a bit difficult for me if as a sudden
15:25.130
evacuation and I am determined to use this time
15:29.720
...photos advantage and I hope my ...do likewise mr noise.
15:30.340
Prime minister
15:37.460
wants the effect in asia of demonstrations such as we had yesterday in washington.
15:41.320
Well, you know, I get a lot of demonstrations in singapore and my students are quite
15:45.130
obnoxious and ...there and,
15:48.410
I think they ought to be otherwise ...that's where the future ...
15:53.290
singapore search for a young community and the young must be idealistic
15:57.470
...must ...that ...should be more just and I should be
16:02.110
more model directed queued in the behavioral show heaters and
16:07.880
the pretense often in an and more than just a peaceful
16:11.610
manner because the common ...into my demonstrations and,
16:12.980
you know.
16:16.440
...windows but got broken are often cosco with
16:20.330
...but at the end of the day I think?
16:23.770
The assertions have got to be made by adults not teenagers.
16:28.410
But, it's got to be made ...such a way that ...the teenagers become
16:33.090
adults and they look back on these ...they would be proud of the generation that
16:36.730
went before that let me ask you this prime minister how confident
16:41.380
are you the united states will continue to supply this underpinning which you
16:48.130
can soon-to-be necessary for the non communist ...over say the next decade or so.
16:50.540
I don't know and I don't think first of all I'm not an
16:55.110
american so how can I know and this one of the reasons cambiada try and get
16:58.570
...thinking the ...of ...
17:05.130
...president has got resolution and determination unrestrained ten.
17:06.640
Somebody will probably work out
17:11.350
a winning line but I've also no doubt that you're secretary of state
17:15.850
objective depends I've got it but what I think in your kind
17:21.180
of open democratic society you must demonstrate which.
17:26.770
Get ...dry and understand better watch the proceedings in your
17:32.280
of presidential elections next year is where they you add that people have got
17:35.100
the resolution that stamina
17:39.630
perseverance an important role in
17:44.180
...patients and.
17:47.610
Capacity to hold back ...
17:55.670
...this quickly and get it over with because this is a very different kind of rule.
18:00.100
The other side is not in uniform you are you believe ...
18:04.950
...southeast asia treaty organization and its present framework
18:10.300
provides inadequate guaranteed ...southeast asian security.
18:12.380
What, you know?
18:17.300
When it happened and I think nineteen ...by?
18:23.900
The ...and ...other leaders like ...very common
18:28.260
in the denunciation even the temple was.
18:30.700
Programa enough malay show ...
18:40.140
Critical ...on and I think looking back now.
18:43.430
But, really didn't meet the situation because it was
18:47.630
so very different from what you did for europe, you know, and,
18:57.180
...run at that takes place on a member country.
19:01.660
An attack against a member of the others will take note that this is a breach of
19:07.420
...a danger to the area but in nature ...that takes
19:12.360
An attack on one is an attack on all the all response and, you know,
19:15.910
what's happened I mean who has responded in south
19:22.420
...pakistanis have not the ...not the british up ...
19:27.140
And, probably for very good reasons and until you convince a show.
19:32.010
That you ...asia as important to you.
19:34.380
As american as europe
19:41.750
...going to find a lot of asians like me.
19:45.270
Critical and really doubting because ninety percent
19:49.040
of you come from europe you understand ...better than
19:53.910
you understand a share some of you understand ...show very well because
19:58.270
you make specialized studies of the subject but as of people and
20:03.650
finally there's the mothers and fathers watching the television screen and
20:08.580
seeing what is happening to ...and all of sweethearts also watching
20:11.000
...decide.
20:14.500
And, if you want people to take us then.
20:19.570
You've got the demonstrated as of people you got what it takes
20:25.690
...does matter to you rather ...was frederick as you call it
20:29.690
...prime minister ...to one of my questions I believe you said and I hope I'm quoting
20:33.100
...correctly the name of ...great care should be taken that there
20:38.250
be no reaction by the russians and chinese they must react would you tell
20:42.990
...under what conditions you feel the russians from the chinese might react to
20:46.990
what is going on in vietnam and whether there is any possibility of
20:52.100
...the picture I think really order put that question too much
20:55.260
...from the?
20:59.070
...brands never mystic rsig in-depth present ...to
21:03.040
...doman ...get marshaled ...
21:08.680
I really ...on to those but I'm quite certain that.
21:14.010
At some point they would decide that ...own national interests
21:18.110
...state and they must respond excuse me gentlemen
21:23.170
...we have a little more than three minutes left mr rabin ...then if you made it clear that you
21:28.000
are concerned about the resolution quickly beyond the sixty eight election into the future of the
21:33.230
us in vietnam and all of asia that are interested stable and long-term
21:37.240
what it not help resolve that the that ...
21:42.160
...if your country but a token small token force you only have two million
21:44.920
in your population I understand if you put a small token
21:49.790
...end of ...to assist in the work is being
21:53.450
done over there against what we call aggression from the north wouldn't that
21:57.700
help the united states to resolve this issue?
22:01.200
I don't see it as my due to use the prime minister ...
22:05.130
elected prime minister of singapore I'm not
22:09.130
...state of the united states I'm not in receipt of your the
22:12.680
...my here to seek ...
22:17.430
Doing all right I hope ...do more trade with you and I don't think it is due to of
22:22.130
the elected representative leader of singapore to
22:26.870
...involve his country in a situation which can and disasters
22:32.120
...people as I've said if there is no resolution
22:36.210
And, god knows what can happen between now and november nineteen
22:39.670
sixty you tell me what happens to audio allies we have
22:45.190
...with you ...well.
22:49.370
In connection with what you just said I remember one to said in fact I believe you ...to
22:54.950
...when we're talking about your neutrality you said I'm not
22:59.940
neutral where the survival of my people are concerned now if
23:03.480
you're survival does depend upon how well the united states and
23:07.330
...vietnamese are able to do in vietnam in the sense of containing
23:12.350
...communist don't you think you should health more directly.
23:12.970
I think my
23:17.630
survivor is not threaten yet I've got the.
23:21.930
...british friends and my common ...friends.
23:23.330
In the area
23:28.210
after the middle seventies and that's a very long-time in the history of south.
23:30.000
East asia.
23:35.280
But, ...of course it could change fundamentally by.
23:40.150
Decisions you can make it in south vietnam between now and sixty eight
23:45.130
and sixty nine and that's the situation changes we ...watching it most intensely
23:49.160
...and we showed make contingency plans.
23:53.900
We have ...we ...about one-minute left noise prime minister if
23:59.180
...you said the treaty ...treaty ...strengthen to be more like nato with the
24:04.060
same guarantees that nato provides with your country ...such a treating
