North Vietnamese blow-job

Oh god, what a load of turd was published today in Göteborgs-Posten about the fall of Saigon. You know it is going to be bad when it begins with

President Richard Nixon ville hindra kommunismens utbredning i Sydostasien...

President Richard Nixon wanted to hinder the spread of communism in South East Asia.


Fucking what??? It was KENNEDY who started it you moron! It was Nixon that began the Vietnamisation process and American withdrawal.

But then it goes on in the usual vein, the NV struggling to "reunify" the country, struggling for years to build up the country that had been decimated like no other (er, post war Germany seems to be doing just fine and South Korea is chugging along just fine). Mind you, they do get a botty-lick in on Seymour Hirsch without mentioning mass-murder after the fall of Sth VIetnam or the thousands upon thousands of boat people desperate to escape. Inconvenient facts I suppose.

There is a link in the article to a handy "Vietnam chronology". Judge for yourself:

1885 - Vietnam becomes a French protectorate like Cambdia and Laos.
1930 - Indochinese communist party founded by, among others, Ho Chi Minh.
1945 - Ho Chi Minh announces the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. War with France.
1950 - USA sends first military advisors to Vietnam.
1954 - French surrender at Dien Bien Phu. Vietnam divided.
1960 - Opposition movement FNL takes up arms in South Vietnam.
1963 - South Vietnamese president Ngo Dinh Diem murdered.
1964 - Tonkin incident opens way for American involvement in the war.
1965 - USA begins terror bombing of North Vietnam.
1968 - FNL and North Vietnam launch the Tet offensive. American army massacre in Song My, South Vietnam.
1969 - Sweden becomes the first Western land to recognise North Vietnam.
1972 - North Vietnam's capital Hanoi and Haiphong bombed during christmas. North Vietnams capital Hanoi and Haiphong bombed during Christmas.
1973 - Peace agreement signed in Paris - but the war continues. USA's last troops leave Vietnam.
1975, 30 april - South Vietmamese regime falls and the war ends.
1976 - North and South Vietnam reunited under a communist regime, The Socialist Republic of Vitnam formed.

Don't mention the thousands of Russian "advisors" and massive amount of Chinese war material flooded into North Vietnam, must maintain the pretense that it was the big bad USA fighting the poor peasants armed only with farm tools and the communist spirit. The USA "terror bombed" North Vietnam, uh huh whatever you say. Hanoi was bombed during Christmas! Shock horror for all those little Christian kids in the Asian Communist state awaiting Santa Claus and worshipping Jesus. Or not. Tet offensive launched, but no mention of the NV being smashed and thrown back by numerically inferior US forces. Isolated incident of Song My to balance this. No mention of regular NV atrocities. Peace agreement signed but war continues, not mentioned that it was of course the NV that were continuing as the US was already withdrawing by then. But don't worry! Sweden was the first to recognise the mass-murdering communist bastards.
