Hell you don't have to spy, it's wide open. The road between Hanoi and Ha Long Bay on both sides of the road are filled with factories 3/4 of the way. In the south new roads, new street lights, new airport terminal, and there is talk of a new international airport being built, new high rises, everyone eats, a million or two motorbikes, Nha Trang many new hotels new road from Nha Trang to Da Lot. They are moving faster than a speeding bullet into the future. I could go on and on, I really like going back.
Great news,i plan on going one day,the thing is the Vietnamese are doing all this not some Colonialist or Imperialist Foreign savage,and thats what some people just don't get.

you'll get dehydrated with that attitude, but it won't take long for an old vet to take you out. I greased plenty in 68, but wouldn't mind one more for the body count bucket list. When will your little puckerer feel up to spitting again?

The government greased plenty of idiots with agent orange in 68! They came home even dumber then they left, unless they came home in a box! The smart ones were all in college or canada.

Any baby killer that couldn't beat outnumbered VC "soldiers" the size of children, wouldn't have a chance of taking me out.

yes, it's over. It is time for Ha Noi to suck up to world capitalists to get some money flowing into communist Ha Noi coffers to pay for electricity to extermination camps. Ha Noi needs to send a team to Moscow to learn how to make money capitalistic style.

bobsponge, MOSCOW ain't in the US. i did not mention US or montagnard. move back from the computer and read very slowly. ha noi should send a team to MOSCOW to learn the capitalistic method of making money or better yet, keep getting cash allowances from Moscow and Beijing, then you don't have to work for it. you know, like welfare. furthermore genius, montagnards cannot be a traitor to a country they never had. It ain't an american company extending electricity to Phu Quoc island. And it's Taiwanese, Japanese, Chinese, Korean companies buiding and investing in Viet Nam.

It's true. Anyone with half a brain was in college, canada, or burned their draft cards. Only morons and sickos joined in to get owned by the vietnamese.

If we didn't have such special ed soldiers we might have won that "war".

Not quite correct you worthless coward. If we would have had generals that were not worried about their next star or officers whose only concern was getting promoted and politicians that had no balls, and were afraid of China and Russia, Vietnam would have been an easy win.
Only a cowardly free loading dildo, with its head up its ass would post what you have, some of the best times of my life, 31/2 years, were during the Vietnam war.

I made you pissed off your ass. Your father worked with American - so what? You worked for American - so what? Theres no point in pissing around the bush. Live in Canada?.... You should have stayed in your homeland with your fu-ck!ng communism. Your madness made you call your opponent "coloured person." I suppose you are a "white" -- yes, a white maggot. You are absolutely right, you are a white maggot. No doubt.

How much different would it have been had Nixon not committed treason and killed the peace treaty brokered by Johnson? All sides had agreed till Nixon told the Vietnam that they would get a better deal if they just waited till he was elected. Nixon wasn't even investigated, no trial, just let him off Scott free.
