As the Boat People exodus made clear, the thugs running Vietnam have been just as brutal as other communist rulers. But at least you can’t accuse them of ingratitude:
Vietnamese guerilla leader Madam Nguyen Thi Binh has praised America’s anti-war movement as having played an important role in “Vietnam’s victory.”
The devout communist leader addressed a letter to the anti-American protesters who gathered in Washington, D.C., on May 3rd to remember the shameful role they played in American history.
“The Vietnamese people have great appreciation for the peace and antiwar movements in the United States and view those movements’ contribution as important in shortening the war.”
By “shortening the war,” she means “permitting the communists to win the war.” This was accomplished by sapping our morale to the point that the will to win was destroyed, while political concerns rather than strategic effectiveness became paramount in military planning. Among the results of this tragic outcome, tens of thousands of Vietnamese were murdered, hundreds of thousands were locked away in concentration camps, and 800,000 attempted to escape the spread of communism in anything that would float.
Binh was a communist delegate to the peace talks of 1973 and was one of the main leaders tasked with propaganda efforts. She successfully formed alliances with American anti-war traitors and utilized these contacts to spread defeatism and lower morale of the fighting men in Vietnam.
In 1970, she met face to face in Paris with a young American traitor named John Kerry, who was in violation of a law that forbids private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers. Kerry was very active in the pro-communist “anti-war” movement, infamously defaming the US military the next year. From his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971:
“I would like to talk, representing all those veterans, and say that several months ago in Detroit, we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged and many very highly decorated veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia, not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command….
“They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”
In acknowledgment of his assistance, a picture of Kerry meeting with Do Muoi, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, was hung in the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City:
Jeff Epstein of Vietnam Vets for Truth explains the significance:
“This photograph’s unquestionable significance lies in its placement in the American protestors’ section of the War Crimes Museum in Saigon. The Vietnamese communists clearly recognize John Kerry’s contributions to their victory. This find can be compared to the discovery of a painting of Neville Chamberlain hanging in a place of honor in Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest in 1945.”
Kerry now serves as Secretary of State under a President who openly regards America as a historic source of evil, and who recently denounced the USA on Vietnamese soil soaked with the blood of Americans who tried to defend it from tyranny.
