    The war they presented is how to rule and ways how to win with their fighting mode to topple the democratic life to communism or vice versa.In short you will feel the terrorism impounded on the ruling one.Any country will experienced this depending on the principle of the leader or the stage concerning the welfare of its people.So let us try to renew its friendship and peaceful means for the sake of stabilized someones own country.

    My cousin was there lucky he came home. He said his buddy was captured n was in a camp tortured for 5 years. Our men saw many of their buddies with their heads cut off. Some kids had machine guns n women would carry bombs.. I don't understand why we even went there. We should not have been there. Those people are sick n not human. I wish we had an atomic bomb drop on them.

    As a Vietnamese from the South, we appreciated the American men who fought for the freedom and against the tyrant of communism

    On September 2, 1945, at Ba Đình square,
    President Hồ Chí Minh
    read for the first time
    The Declaration of Independence of
    The Democratic Republic of Vietnam.

    My country men,

    "All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness"

    This immortal statement was made in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America in 1776. In a broader sense, this means: All the nations on the earth are equal from birth, all the nations have the right to live, to be happy and free.

    The Declaration of the French Revolution made in 1791 on the Rights of Man and the Citizen also states: "All men are born free and with equal rights, and must always remain free and having equal rights." Those are undeniable truths.

    Nevertheless, for more than eighty years, the French colonialists misused the flag of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity to invade our Fatherland and oppressed our country men. Their action contradicted to the humanity and justice. Politically, they absolutely have deprived our people of every democratic freedom…

    For these reasons, we, members of the Provisional Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, solemnly declare to the world that Vietnam has the right to be a free and independent country and in fact it is so already. The entire Vietnamese people are determined to mobilize all their physical and mental strength, to sacrifice their lives and property in order to safeguard their independence and liberty.

    President Hô Chí Minh

    Propaganda is not only used for brainwashing the North Vietnamese people that also is cheating the foreigners in the world, the most are all naïve foreign photographers, moviemakers, historians until today. Viet Cong and North Communists are two different entities. Communist Party in Hà Nội had kept sending their troops to the South Vietnam for ambition occupying South during 20 years.
    American troops were sending to South VN for protecting and preventing the communist spreading over the world. All South Vietnamese people always thank for this American helping.

    How could uncle Sam think he could win against the people of vietnam? What a vast of young mens life , the parasites on wall Street would not send their own children to endless wars.

  16. Big respect to the US soldiers fighting in that horrible jungle, with enemy lying in wait ready to ambush, had no chance.

  18. Imagine if JFK had not been assassinated. Would the USA have gotten involved in this war? Or was it an LBJ thing?

    They were trained by the US during WW2 and then turned on us when we deserted them after the war ended. Sounds a lot like what happened 50 years later in Afghanistan.

  21. Grampa Billy says:

    Wow. Such industrious people. They all worked together towards a single goal. They had nothing and still won.

  22. Mike Derby says:

    Thank u blackbear for the footage! My dad was in Vietnam and I've always been interested in the war!!

  23. Aka Thiree says:

    My uncle died in Vietnam in 1967 before I was born. I have never seen VC/NVA propaganda films like this before. The belief in their independence is like a religion to the VC. The arrogance of the Soviets and Americans to think that they could impose their will on similarly proud people of the nation of Afghanistan after seeing this is remarkable.

    I suppose the secret of their success was the widespread mobilisation of the populace and focus upon a singular objective. As like with an ant-colony ALL individuals are focussed on achievement of the one objective. Very interesting, too, was the collection and use of captured equipment which was re-manufactured and redeployed against their enemy. Our military staff should take note!
