International Christian Concern ^ | 12/27/2004 | Montagnard Foundation

Keep in prayer for the Vietnam Human Rights Bill. It is presently in the Senate after passing by a wide margin in the House.

If you have any doubt about whether the Bill should pass, take a look at the picture below of an actual re-education camp in Vietnam provided by the Montagnard Foundation. Re-education camps are where believers are typically sent.

Stay tuned as we will post a picture per day over the next 4 days.

It's just part of the 'reunification' process.

Ask any liberal who still believes that abandoning the Vietnamese was the right thing to do.

These pictures, if real, reinforce my belief that this is what we fought for.

But the left-wing democrats said that these were their best friends and as with all Communist were the kind of people that they admired.

Re: my post #3

I wasn't able to open any of those "Montagnard Foundation" links.

I got the top link to work, and I now understand.

Thanks

Believers in freedom for one thing.

My wife's best friend has a relative currently in reeducation for his heinous thought crimes.

These pictures, if real,

Those are definitely N. Vietnamese helmets and uniforms. When the photos were taken, who knows.

this must be one of the places CBS went for interviews with John Kerrys real band of brothers.

Yeah, just go back and review all the pictures of Bonnie and Clyde pandering to the Viet Namese COMMIES before they were 'thrown out of the White House'. Only the COMMIES, and other enemies of America, want anything to do with the far-left.

I've never been able to decide whether or not there was any ratinoal cause in Nam. I've seen interviews with South Vietnamese who claimed they were sharecroppers under the old regime with no possibility of owning land, that the VC split up and old plantatations and pretty much gave them the land that they'd been working forever, and that then the south (temporarily) retook the area and immediately gave all the land back to the absentee landlords.

That sort of thing coupled with the way the war was being prosecuted by our side pretty much killed any political support for the war in the US. A real war between the US and North Vietnam should last a year, tops. Moreover, there is no rational way anybody can ask draftees to fight in such a thing or draft the boy next door and tell him it's somehow or other his patriotic duty to go into harms way for something which clearly amounts to a geopolitical game with no semblence of a declaration of war or a real commitment.

That was the problem. Ronald Reagan finally figured out that you play geopolitical games with petty cash and a few handsfull of professional soldiers and soldiers of fortune, and not with vast sums of treasure and tens of thousands of draftees and, for that reason, unlike the presidencies of LBJ or Nixon, Reagan's presidency will go into the books as a success story.

I am well aware that this goes on in Vietnam and Laos, but without more information, the pictures are a bit useless. These people could be there for any number of reasons.

That was always part of the problem with our war against Communism. The enemies of Communism were usually corrupt. They were usually much better than the Communists, but most had serious issues. The Communists slaughtered well over a million people after the end of the war. Communist regimes throughout the world slaughter 100 million people in the 20th Century. So as bad as the people we supported were, they usually could not hold a candle to how evil Communists were.

Well put. Nam was a disaster and a tragic waste of our soldiers lives, in monumental proportions, because it was a war that was NOT FOUGHT TO BE WON, just scripted by politicians and not to be fought and won by military commanders. Washington politics out of control.

Wishful thinking. No one is sent to a re-education camp simply for being Christian.
