Looks like he gets it right.........

Vietnamese-American CA Assemblyman puts Dean in his rightful place.  Neat GOP video Dems are howling about!  Green laugh  Green laugh  Green laugh
Van’s (Tran) family first came to America in 1975, evacuated by the U.S. Army a week before the fall of Saigon. Originally settling in Michigan, the family moved to Orange County while Van was in high school. Politically active during his university days, Assemblyman Tran started as an intern for Congressman Robert Dornan and for then State Senator (now Congressman) Ed Royce.
"Tran Blast Dean, Calls For Solidarity In Iraq
“Dean’s comments are irresponsible and revisionist”

WASHINGTON, D.C.– On Monday, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said during an interview with WOAI radio in San Antonio, TX, “Of course, the South Vietnamese couldn’t manage to support their own country.”

“Dean’s comments are irresponsible and revisionist,” said California Assemblyman Van Tran (R-Costa Mesa), the first Vietnamese-American legislator in America. “Instead of undermining our war effort, Dean should focus on joining the rest of Americans in supporting our troops.”

“South Vietnam only fell after Congress lost the will to support our allies. Their terrible decision in 1975 has led to three decades of tyranny in that country, where freedom is persecuted and political choice doesn’t exist. This is something we can not let happen in Iraq. To maintain security in the region and to continue an aggressive prosecution of the War on Terror, American must continue to support the new government in Iraq and help them establish stability there.”

“I am particularly offended by Dean’s attempt to pull the Vietnamese people into his political strategy. Like the oppressed people from Cuba, the Vietnamese people have a strong love of freedom and democracy. Millions have died and more have been imprisoned trying to secure those freedoms.”

“After the January elections in Iraq I wrote:
‘I still mourn the dreadful situation in Vietnam, where human rights are crushed and freedom is a distant dream. Our loss there helps Sunday’s achievement to shine even brighter as a symbol of hope to the world.’

‘Sunday’s vote was a great step toward the promise of democracy, but only one step up the long stairway of a truly democratic society. Remember it took Japan and Germany about ten years to govern independently after their surrender in 1945 (it was four years before the first election in Germany). The progress in Iraq has been heart warming and should help us to reaffirm our values as this troubled nation continues the path to democracy.’”
“The terrorists are trying to win this war by challenging America’s spirit and returning us to a status where we just react to future attacks. They have succeeded in bringing the unwitting Dean to their efforts, but we can not just bury our head and wait.”

The DRUDGE REPORT has learned from a top GOP operative that the Republican National Committee will provide state parties with a web video prior to release tomorrow afternoon that shows a white flag waving over images of Democrat leaders making anti-war remarks.


The ad is in response to the controversial comments Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean and 2004 Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry made earlier in the week.

A Democratic strategist who had the web ad described to her said, “This is way over the top but we have no one to blame but Dean, Kerry and others who continue to pander to the anti-war activists within our party.”

The web video advances the Republican contention that the Democrats only have a “retreat and defeat” message on the war in Iraq.

The video highlights the effect Democrats can have on the morale of U.S. soldiers.

One Republican strategist familiar with the ad said, “The Democrats, especially Howard Dean have a way of trying to turn the tables and say ‘that’s not what I meant’ – its just those ‘evil Republicans’ This video will make them crazy – it reinforces what they really believe with what they actually said – and that is devastating for the Democratic Party.”
