More Than 3,000 Soviet Soldiers Fought In Vietnam War

Commentary: Vietnam was the biggest victim of the cold war when the communism and capitalism waged hot war in Vietnam from 1960-1975. Communist propaganda was good at misleading the world’s public opinion that American involvement as aggressors and occupying force of South Vietnam.

Would large contingency of 170,00 Chinese soldiers have been considered as an occupying force too? Between 1965 and 1971 more than 320,000 Chinese troops were deployed in North Vietnam. The peak year for this was 1967, when there were around 170,000 Chinese in the DRV. Their work on military installations naturally meant that Chinese troops were susceptible to heavy American bombing; an estimated 1,000 Chinese were killed in the North in the late 1960s. The communist side also sent military personnel to help Vietnamese communists to wage war. The Soviet Union sent 3,000 soldiers to participate in the war against Americans.

Therefore, it is an aberration to believe that Vietnam war instigated by Vietnamese communists was a war for independence against foreign occupation. The late General Secretary of Communist Party, Le Duan, admitted later that Vietnam fought and died for Soviet Union and China in order to spread the red revolution (“Ta vào Nam nổ súng là đánh cho Trung Quốc, đánh cho Liên Xô”.) It is a natural fact that the revered Uncle Ho Chi Minh and his lieutenants were trained first and foremost as comintern agents before taking the power in Vietnam.

Communists Panicked Over Massive Rejection Of Maintaining Vietnamese Citizenship By Việt Kiều (Overseas Vietnamese)

Commentary: The nature for the survival of any dictatorship is its control of over the population, Vietnamese communist regime is a police state where one-in-six work for security forces. Its desire to have some control over a thriving overseas Vietnamese community (Viet Kieu) of 4.5 million people is natural and critical to the political survival of the regime. Furthermore, overseas Vietnamese community (Viet Kieu)  is a great financial resources to the regime as the GDP of 4.5 million overseas Vietnamese (Viet Kieu) is equal to the GDP of 90 million Vietnamese.

Vietnamese Citizen ID Card

In an attempt to regain some control over the overseas Vietnamese community as a large majority are former political refugees of the regime, the communists enacted  Citizenship Act 2008, which would strip Vietnamese citizenship if overseas Vietnamese have not registered with Vietnamese agencies by July 1, 2014.  According to Mr. Nguyen Thanh Son, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Chairman of the State Committee for Overseas Vietnamese, 90-95% of overseas Vietnamese (Viet Kieu) have returned to visit Vietnam, but only 6,000 out of 4.5 million Viet Kieu have registered to maintain their Vietnamese citizenship. The massive rejection of the new law has caused panic among the Vietnamese officials, who have talked about postponing the deadline or even making modifications of the law. Continue reading
