      That's very informative, thanks. I've always wanted to visit Vietnam and Cambodia to scope out their beaches for a nice little retirement shack in the middle of nowhere. My plan has always been to become a rural hermit near some sandy beach with clean water.

      Edit: I'm aware that they do not allow foreigners to buy land but they will allow you to buy an apartment or put up a small business IIRC.
      l don’t know about the whole coastline of Vietnam, but several years ago, from Nha Trang to Cam Ranh Bay every quarter mile there were billboards, COMING SOON! HILTON (or Four Seasons-or Marriot etc) RESORT! OCEANFRONT CONDOS! FINE DINING! GOLF! So beach front is going fast - my kids said motorcycling the mountains was still cheap and beautiful.

        You do know it was a civil war mixed with war of Independence, right it's not like the US was not acting to benefit some of the population of Vietnam. We where not at war with Vietnam but the Communist revolutionaries. It does get a lot more complicated than that due to the role of French Colonialism in the matter. Those that benefited from it and those that did not.
        The war was brutal for the Southern Vietnamese.
        You can act morally superior but talk to the refugees about the horrors being inflected on them by the Vietcong.

            I have some Vietnamese in my family. They were actually refugees that came over when my granddad sponsored them and supported them for a few years. His entire family comes to family reunions, Christmas, and normal visits. They sat with the family when my granddad died.

            We go to Chinese new year with them at the Vietnamese church every year and have a lot of Vietnamese friends. I've not talked to a single one who is not grateful for the US help and the opportunity that the US still gives them.

            But what do they know, they were just born there and lived through it.

              I think that l will see if others respond to your weak ass posts in the future. As they say in trad karate, do not honor a weak opponent by striking him. Didn’t mean much til that Japanese Kyokushin tournie fighter just looked bored blocking me in Honolulu one night.

              Fuck Goodlum, are you just trolling? Making bad jokes? Or do you really mean what you post? Study some history, at least use Google. Kermit Roosevelt was sharp, he ignored the cease and desist order from Langley when their regime change coup was failing, and hired street gangs to demonstrate and riot. It worked. He was smart, he thought in the terms of American Exceptialism. That this created a horrible mess of death, torture, and an unstable world order was not in his mind. We should learn from history.

              Darius l, the Great, according to some accounts, got six buddies to go to the palace, and being nobles, were let in with their swords and knives. So they slaughtered King Guamana, maybe a few others, and said, we are running this show, boys! Persia, and soon Egypt, Macedonia, etc was theirs.

                Study history and you will know it has to do with everything.

Do you really expect anyone to cry over a bunch of bigoted pricks getting missle enemas because they can't play nice with those outside of their batshit circle??

                    You could benefit by going to the Middle East, like l have, or at least expand your reading.

                    Here are some links, even some quoting Israeli scholars who aren’t right wing assholes. Not that you will read anything like this.

                      It must be nice to blame the ills of a society based on the actions of the CIA, tio just write off the Iranians culpability in the events of their revolution. To place the blame so squarely on the actions of the boogie men at Langley. As you pointed out the CIA did all that with 100k.
                      Perhaps the CIA helped the revolution out, but if you really think about it they provided hardly anything in material support.

                            Your worse than a college freshman, oh if you just read this you will become so woke.
                            If a society can fall so easily it's going to fall.

                            It's cool though ignore the internal pressures of a country, one with 10s of millions of people, and be like wow those wizards at the CIA used their magic to take a totally a ok society and turn it into a hell hole.
