  •  During WW II they were our allies (1+ / 0-)

    Ho Chi Minh helped us rescue downed pilots, locate Japanese bases, and conducted guerrilla operations against the Japanese.  He had a very good relationship with the OSS, but I think Donovan blew it. He thought he was gaming the Viet Minh with promises of independence after the war while they were gaming him.

    They had been intermittently fighting the French for independence for decades. Following WWII they had new weapons and new allies and were finally successful.

    Kissinger's  attempt to superimpose his domino theory atop the centuries long history of the region was extremely misguided.

    Others have simply gotten old. I prefer to think I've been tempered by time.
