(I quote verbatim - it was written in 1962)
"The pattern of these events will be distressingly familiar in any country which has been the victim of invasion. The invaders had arrived believing (with how much sincerity one cannot tell) that they had come as benefactors. They seemed to be surprised that the invaded people did not want the benefactions in the least. As popular resentment grew against them, they did not try to allay it by withdrawing, or even by making concessions to the people's wishes; they tried to repress it by ever-increasing force, and rather than blame themselves, they searched for scapegoats."
