How does it go? I think it's, "Those who cannot will not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." The following is anecdotal, and not well documented.

North Vietnamese General Vo Nguyen Giap: “We were elated to notice your media was definitely helping us. They were causing more disruption in America than we could in the battlefields. We were ready to surrender after Tet. You had won!”

However, this one is.

Giap did have this to say in a 1989 interview with CBS: “We paid a high price [during the Tet offensive] but so did you [Americans]... not only in lives and materiel. Do not forget the war was brought into the living rooms of the American people.... The most important result of the Tet offensive was it made you de-escalate the bombing, and it brought you to the negotiation table. It was, therefore, a victory... The war was fought on many fronts. At that time the most important one was American public opinion.

Not that they'll listen, being all caught up in snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
