Pictures of a vietnamese Re-Education Camp (Vietnam Human Rights Bill)
International Christian Concern ^ | 12/27/2004 | Montagnard Foundation

Posted on 12/27/2004 5:36:00 AM PST by miltonim

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.

In many Arab countries, they just kill us. Re-Education is beyond the pale. Where have you been born and housed to think people are no persecuted for being a Christian. Many have been thrown in prisons and such camps as these.

Y'know Sarge, just finished reading this & frankly I for one have had enough.

This nation and it's putrid, sickening, Liberal-Socialist infested quisling media -- it'd appear -- are going to get their way.
They've insisted & now seem to have successfully convinced the gullible American public we're nothing more than a pack of moronic losers.
Fine, have it their way.

America should call home her brave kids, today, this very instant & not another precious soul would be lost for anyone else's "freedom" ever again.
No exceptions.

A rogue nation or nations wants to screw with America, on American soil, there's a solution.
American intelligence will find out exactly who's behind any attack, they always do.
Soon as the truth's known our nuclear boomers will launch an all-out attack with their well stocked nuclear arsenal against any & all "host" nation(S).
Turn the place(s) into rubble, return 'em to the stone age & then leave whatever's left to themselves.

Enough is enough.

High time America took care of its own.
It's quite apparent -- to me, anyway -- America seems all-too-content entertaining the jesters & clowns staffing the Liberal-Socialist quisling media so with the enemy within, what's happening know is foolish & an exercise in futility.
I mean we can't kill 'em, right?

Trouble is, Sarge?
If/when the Liberal-Socialists decide sending our kids into harm's way -- for God only knows what reason(s) -- is merited, that's exactly what they'll do & do so with complete impunity.
They'll be supported, hailed as "wise" & compassionate defenders of "freedom" and the Liberal-Socialist leader ordering the aggression??
That individual will be immortalized forevermore as the greatest person of our time, another "FDR".

By who will this aggrandizement come, you wonder?
Why the Liberal-Socialist quisling media, of course.

Time to bring the kids home, Sarge.
Time to take care of ourselves.

...& to hell with this damned world.

I hear your frustation, Friend Landru. that's expressed so very well here.

But as long as I have this Internet tool to try and prevent a repetition in the Middle East of the so very unnecesssary suffering that was brought upon a once Free People when we ABANDONED them during their Battle for Freedom in a threatened Southeast Asia long ago,

...I will continue to sacrifice whatever it takes to do so.

Things already sacrificed:

So be it.
Just the kind of man you are, a class act.
One who put their money where their mouth is on numerous occasions and when you & those like you are gone may God have mercy on us, all.
We'll need it.

In the meantime we must accept the reality "they're" hell bent on doing the exact same thing as happened in SE Asia and succeeding, again!
There's not a damned thing anyone can do about it, either.

Anecdotal example but just yesterday it was reported a GI from Fort Drum was spit upon, "assaulted", in an airport by a deranged 34 y/o Liberal-Socialist bitch.
Happened in the shithole we know as Syracuse, NY, and oddly enough the authorities actually caught the POS in the parking structure before she could flee.

Her "punishment"?
I'm going to *guess* a couple hundred $$ fine & 30 days probation.
Won't tell you what I'm thinking should happen to the whacked-out bitch.

Listen, Sarge.
IF this nation's going to send her children into harm's way we'd better damned well at LEAST support them AND the cause that took 'em there.
Be the cause "right" or "wrong", it doesn't matter once they're involved.

Those GIs are fighting FOR the concept of "freedom" they believe in, a freedom of us & for them & sacrificing their own lives in the process.
Meanwhile they're cleverly, constantly -- albeit passive-aggresively -- "attacked" back here, at home from within by the lowliest scum of scum who embolden whack jobs such as the bitch cited, above.

With the results of the last election I suspect we'll be hearing more & more of this kind of crap. Expected to passively stand by & let it happen, too?
I'm sorry Sarge but that's not acceptable, in fact down right screwy.

It is up to -- & always has been up to -- the AMERICAN PEOPLE to protect those abroad who're protecting us & a liberty *someone's* decided should be implemented where there is none.
Is that asking too much, and, if we cannot--will not do that then dammit don't send 'em to start with.
The system "some" used for making decision(s) involving the lives of others needs to change, and it needs to change right now.

"Things already sacrificed..."

Know very well what you & your comrades sacrificed, Ron.
I've nothing to say that'd adequately express my profound gratitude because although I may be a Viet-era vet, I didn't experience any of the hell you & thousands of others had to endure.
All I've got today is my rage having to sit idly by & witness both the living & dead disrespected & defiled by those who'd otherwise be among the first to be shot as even our enemies understand there's no room for treasonous bastards after they're finished doing what treasonous bastards do best.
Understand?

Is *this* what exercising "freedom" has come to mean?
To piss on those who had the pride of liberty & the courage to try "giving" it to others with their own blood?
If so then burn it all to the goddam ground & start over, it's no longer worth saving.
Spreading [that] kind of insanity to another peoples boarders on the criminal.

"For the one thing the LOVE Itself needs more of in this world, for GOD is LOVE, is more LOVE. And that only comes when...people are FREE..!!!"

I'll leave God outa this, it's apparent to me He has a weird sense of humor *and* justice if and/or when things are permitted to go as far, get as screwed-up as they are.
We mortals, OTOH, are another matter.

When I was a kid I'd want something, beg my old man to give it to me & he'd have none of it, always refused.
Told me I had to work for whatever I wanted, would even make crap up to give me to do so I could earn whatever it was I seemed to want so damned bad.
He knew if he simply gave me something, I'd never respect it.
He was absolutely right even if I resented the hell outa him while being forced to learn his pithy object lesson.

Well Sarge, y'know what?
"Freedom" & "liberty" is the same.
Precisely why I said let us take care of our own & to hell with the world *&* their problem(s).
American taxpayers have sacrificed FORTUNES developing WMD so we could GUARENTEE our nations safety, our liberties against all comers.
It's about time we embraced the meaning, the philosophy behind developing those weapons.
Long overdue.

Let the Iraqi, Iranian, North Korean and any other damned nation's PEOPLE fight for their OWN freedom. Shed their OWN blood just as our forefathers did, IF, they want it so bad.
Liberty must be earned or it has no value.
It's that simple.

Our attempt(s) to "give" Liberty, using the blood of our kids, hasn't worked.
Not then & not now regardless how sincere our intention(s) might be.

Continuing the present course?

...is just nuts.

KERRY called us American Soldiers fighting for the Freedom of Communist terrorist-threatened Free South Vietnamese ..the terrorists.

KENNEDY then pushed Congress into cutting off all our funding for Free South Vietnamese to fight for their own Freedom with, and then for Medical Aid needed for their resulting wounded casualties as they were running out of Ammunition. Directly bringing about the 1975 Fall of Saigon.

KENNEDY recently stated on NBC-TV's 'Meet the Press' that "only" about 100,000 South Vietnamese lost their lives after the Fall of Saigon. He was NOT challenged by the program's TV host RUSSERT for this blantant lie on National TV.

KENNEDY appears on the FoX News Channel's 'FoX News Sunday' TV Interview program for the first time ever tommorrow morning, with re-airings later during the day Sunday.

Stayed tuned for more of the same from KENNEDY on National TV as the newly Free Iraqi people fight for their own Freedom, after our own Freedom was attacked by terrrorists here at home.

Doesn't there come a time when we have to start asking ourselves...

.."Why has the KERRY/KENNEDY duo always been so dead set against Freedom for Others when they are threatened by terrorists..?"

We know that millions of people in S.E. Asia lost their lives after the Fall of Saigon.

Remember "The KILLING FIELDS" Motion Picture..?

When the graphically accurate Vietnamese-American "The JOURNEY from the FALL" Motion Picture Production is finally released nationwide in theaters in March 2007...

...you'll finally be able to grasp the massive suffering endured by the once Free South Vietnamese after the Democrats in Congress ABANDONED them to invading Communist terrorists from the North ..without the means to defend themselves.

I only regret that "The JOURNEY from the FALL" Motion Pictures didn't find a distributor before this year's Congressional Elections.

In this new time of war in a new Century, with our own Freedom now directly at stake right here at home...

...it could have made all the difference.

TED KENNEDY just stated on 'FoX News Sunday' that our American Soliders have now been in Iraq...

...LONGER than they were in South Vietnam.

American Troops were gone from South Vietnam by 1973.

TED KENNEDY personally visited us American Soldiers fighting for Freedom in Vietnam in October 1965.

http://www.lzxray.com/guyer_set1.htm
(See 5th Picture down)

SO HE JUST KNOWS BETTER..!!!


TED KENNEDY has repeatedly lied on TV to the American People about the Vietnam and now Iraq Wars.

Just count the millions of S.E. Asian casualties that resuted from his personally getting Congress to cut off all our funding for the then Free South Vietnamese to fight for their own Freedom with, and then for all Medical Aid for them to treat their resulting casualties with.

People are essentially arrested because they are Christians but the phenomenon is in decline. Actually people who are Protestant Christians are arrested for doing or saying things that would not get other folks arrested, or at least not so soon. Protestants are a fairly new phenomenon in Viet Nam and Protestantism is considered a foreign thing, a Western thing. Catholics have been a substantial element of the population for several centuries and Catholicism is "Vietnamese." Actually, following Reunification the VCs
(that's what the locals call government people and government fans) attempted to ban religion altogether. The Buddhists, at least in the South, pretty much just stopped- went home and drank tea. The country was sliding rapidly toward the cliff when the VCs decided well okay, Buddhism is a Cultural Vietnamese institution. Right then the border war with China was on and the VCs discovered that they were Vietnamese, not undifferentiated Communists. It took a few years longer to determine that Catholicism is also Culturally Vietnamese but the Catholics were becoming the business class pretty rapidly because they were not permitted to work for the government or in any of the government enterprises, so they got into trading and services and making stuff to sell. The economy was more and more depending on them. The major social disabilities finally came off in the last year.Protestant conversion has happened much too recently and much too fast and the VCs do not understand it and simply don't have any idea how to deal with it. To the VCs it is some sort of foreign invasion. Moreover it has happened mainly among the mountain people- the minorities. The VCs, and to some extent, the Kinh (the ethnic Viets) see it much the same way that our own establishment viewed the Ghost Dance phenomenon that swept the Great Plains Indians in the late 1880s. In our case that led to Wounded Knee and lots of other untoward action. We got over it finally, but not without some egregious killing and imprisonments. The analogy is apt, in part because the folks we call Montagnards are to Viet Nam very much what the plains Indians were to America ca. 1885-1920. There are even reservations from which the Moi and the Hmong depart from time to go hunting or just because it is the season to go somewhere else. The VCs will get over it and US pressure is a great factor in the speed with which they get do over it. Viet Nam desires to be protected by America and desires to NOT be the Chinese Riviera. Viet Nam is thus much more responsive to American pressure than, say, China. The real holdup is that the VCs, while wanting to make all the changes necessary are trying to do it in such a way as to also keep their jobs. Ultimately they will fail to keep their jobs.

ThanhPhero:

Your brilliant sharing of CLARITY in Post No. 486,

...as our U.S. 7th Cavalry Commanding Officer Lt. Col. HAL G. MOORE kept telling his men while completely surrounded by 1,000's of North Vietnamese Communist Army Regulars in that Valley of Death known as the IA DRANG Valley of November 1965,

Thank you to...

...all those who have CARED enough to contribute their very best to the over 23,000 viewings of this most important Thead of CLARITY.

Especially in a new time of war with our own Freedom directly at stake here at home.

Perhaps the greatest value of such CLARITY may well be in our NEVER AGAIN repeating this same kind of tragic 'Cut & Run' History,

...and the mass suffering of so many Free souls it always produces..?


NEVER ever AGAIN.

The same Sen. TED KENNEDY who pushed Congress into cutting off all funding for the then Free South Vietnamese to fight for the own Freedom with against invading Communist Terrorists from the North,

...went on to do this against our own Freedom with the Communist Soviet Union:
