Editor's Note: Looking back at the fall of Saigon, a former general in the South Vietnamese Army says that the possibility of a free Vietnam is now threatened by China's imperial ambitions. That's bringing Vietnam and the United States closer together...

Editor's Note: The killing of nine Vietnamese fishermen by the Chinese navy is a marker of China's aggressive designs on natural resources in the Eastern Sea.

SAN FRANCISCO--Vietnamese communities in the United States, Europe and Australia are protesting the Jan. 8 killing of Vietnamese fishermen by the Chinese navy. On that day, navy ships from the People's Republic of China shot and killed nine Vietnamese fishermen and injured seven others in the Vinh Bac Bo (Gulf of Tonkin). Eight fishermen were kidnapped.

PARIS, 23 April 2007 (Vietnam Committee) - As high-level American and Vietnamese officials prepare to meet in Washington D.C. for the U.S.-Vietnam Human Rights Dialogue tomorrow (24 April 2007), the Paris-based International Federation of Human Rights (FIDH) and the Geneva-based World Organization against Torture (OMCT), released a groundbreaking report today on their very first mission to Vietnam. Mr Vo Van Ai, President of the Vietnam Committee on Human Rights and FIDH Vice-President welcomed the publication of the report, issued in the framework of the FIDH and OMCT's joint programme, the Observatory of Human Rights Defenders. 'This Report comes at a very significant moment'Ã��, said Vo Van Ai. ââ¬Å“Just as Vietnam is launching a brutal crackdown to stifle all peaceful voices of dissent, the Report 'gives the floor' to twelve human rights defenders met by the FIDH/OMCT mission in Vietnam, including Thich Quang Do, Thich Thien Minh, Thich Khong Tanh, Nguyen Dan Que, Father Chan Tin, Hoang Minh Chinh etc. Their testimonies shine a rare light on the daily realities faced by human rights defenders from all walks of life, and provides a precious tool in campaigns to alert international opinion to Vietnam's total disregard of its international obligations to uphold its citizens' fundamental freedoms and rights.

During the Vietnam War, the ill-treatment of prisoners in South Vietnam was one of the major issues of the mass media when the same matter in North Vietnam was neglected. After April 1975, the world's attention was drawn to the imprisonment of many hundred thousands of former civil employees and military servicemen of the collapsed Saigon regime in the so-called re-education camps.

Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes. --Virgil

Three years have passed since the Russian edition of this book first appeared. The developments that have taken and are continuing to take place in the country of the "cogs" have served to confirm the topicality of my subject. The scraps of information 1 had to gather from Soviet and non-Soviet publications are now flooding onto the pages of magazines and newspapers, even television screens. It has been announced officially that the Soviet Union is going through a crisis. In the last years of Leonid Brezhnev's life there was no longer any doubt about the reality of this crisis. Yuri Andropov, who succeeded him as general secretary, spoke of it openly, but the brevity of his tenure in the top post (November 12, 1982 to February 9, 1984) allowed him to do no more than draw up a program of action. His successor, Konstantin Chemenko, ceased altogether to talk of a crisis. He held on to the post of general secretary for just over a year (February 13, 1984 to March 10, 1985).

The Legacy of Karl Marx

by Dr. Fred C. Schwarz


By Dr. Walter Judd

In 1930 when I was working as a medical missionary in South China, I was introduced to Communism by long "Indoctrination" by Chinese devotees. They were so sure of themselves that sometimes I had to wonder if their interpretation of human beings and society was factual and correct while ours was illusion and error.

One day, I said to the persuader: "It is plain that you totally believe what you are saying, but I can't agree.  I'm sure it is against human nature."...

Battle Of Hue City

In March of 1998, Kim Nguyen posted the following to the newsgroup alt.war.vietnam

1968-1998: The 30th Anniversary of the Hue Massacre

The National United Front for the Liberation of VN

Thirty years ago, an important event happened in Vietnam, the upheaval is referred to by world media as "The Tet offensive". However, to many Vietnamese families, Tet Mau Than celebration was a celebration in mourning as thousands of their relatives were massacred in the history-rich city of Vietnam: Hue's ancient city.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Massacre at Hue is the name given to describe the summary executions and mass killings that occurred during the Viet Cong and North Vietnam's capture, occupation and withdrawal from the city of Hue during the Tet Offensive, considered one of the longest and bloodiest battles of the Vietnam War. During the months and years that followed the battle, dozens of mass graves were discovered in and around Hue containing 2,800 civilians and prisoners of war. In some of the graves victims were found bound together; some appeared tortured; others were even reported to have been apparently buried alive. Estimates vary on the number executed, with a low of two hundred to a high of several thousand.

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

The politics of Vietnam takes place in a framework of a single-party socialist republic. A new state constitution was approved in April 1992, reaffirming the central role of the Communist Party of Vietnam in politics and society, and outlining government reorganization and increased market reforms in the economy. Though Vietnam remains a one-party state, adherence to ideological orthodoxy has become less important than economic development as a national priority.
