Interview with Ed Vaughn
QUESTION 13
SAM POLLARD:

Give me a sense of, I mean did you feel like this was a revolution, it had come and it was finally here?

ED VAUGHN:

Well, I felt like the, the revolution was here but I also felt like we were going to lose the revolution because I knew that you could not defeat tanks with bricks and that there was not enough weaponry in the community to really deal with this kind of, of armaments, and of course we had been reading the teachings of Mao Tse-Tung, we had been reading the Red Book, and one of the things that Mao always said is that you go, "Never go into battle unless you're certain of victory." I was not certain of victory, and I certainly wanted the, the, the fighting to end and some kind of compromise take place.

SAM POLLARD:

OK, let's cut.
