http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/18/w...rained-vietnamese-troops-dies-at-91.html?_r=0 WWII saw the Japanese occupy Vietnam and toss out the French. The USA sent army advisors in, by parachute, to teach the Vietnamese rebels how to fight against the Japanese. Once the war was over and the Japanese gone, the French tried to return. Well, the Vietnamese rebels LIKED Americans. General Giap learned to throw a hand grenade from his American advisor. They incorporated language from our Declaration of Independence in their document of the same. Poorly educated jungle fighters probably just joined the Communist band wagon as the trendy thing to do. Obviously, they were not Red enough to hate America. Then, when the French tried to regain their colony, Harry Truman sided with the French. Wait a minute. The USA expelled British colonialists. Why did we help French colonialists? Surely, money was to be made by someone. That Giap and Ho Chi Minh were Commies was a convenient way to excuse our siding with the French, don't you think? I think we could have NOT sided with French, and Commies or not, Giap and Ho would have buddied up with the USA in some fashion. Maybe against their old enemy China. Heck, presently, Wal-Mart is full of goods made by "Communist China". Maybe Karma came back to bite the USA in the form of 55,000 dead service people.
