In the last portion of that same video, that is HochiMinh HW nowadays.

Respect there Bob,what many people in the West don't understand is the magnitude of the sacrifice Vietnamese people made for Liberation,i read some of the NLF fighters had spent the best part of thirty years fighting invaders,its the arrogance of Imperialism and Colonialism,the French had a shock at Dien Bien Phu,one woud have thought the US would have learned that lesson of History,you were lucky to have survived Pol Pots people,the Vietnamese never had credit in the West for Liberating Cambodia,as for Vietnam/China,i would love to see those two Countries be Partners not fighting.

trash American government lost that war after committing 58,000+ Americans to their do nothing war, then withdrew troops and stopped sending money. No mon, no war. need ammo for guns, not throw rocks at communist trash. communist all trash no matter in DC, Ha Noi, or wherever. The US CONGRESS handed the innocent south Vietnamese over to the communist butchers but you communist liars will call me all sorts of derogatory names for telling truth but I don't give a rat rear what you communist liars say about me.
DC trash handed southvietnamese rear end to the communist butchers. There are only two kind of good communists, dead one and one never existed.
