It is evident that the left has brain washed several people. The South Vietnamese left the country by the millions when the North took over and many ofthose remaining were placed in reeducation camps. The North took over when they violated the peace treaty signed in Paris and after the US Congress cut off funds. Further, there were no Viet Cong left (or very few) after TET 1968 and those that were left were discarded by the North Vietnamese. If the military had been allowed to fight a war with the North it would have been over in months. The military was not allowed to fight to win and as such we lost over 58,000 and still counting. The cause was to gain freedom for the people of South Vietnam. Any lies that you read about giving land to the South Vietnameseby by the Communist North is mostly that, lies. Do not believe the press in the United States as they must maintain the lies to make sure that their position on the war was justified. The war was against Communism there are NO good Communist the Communist of the world were and still are trying to destroy the United States.

The South Vietnamese left the country by the millions when the North took over and many ofthose remaining were placed in reeducation camps.
In addition, millions of *North* Vietnamese left North Vietnam after 1954, when the handwriting was on the wall that the Viet Minh were going to launch an aggressive Communist progrom of land seizures and persecutions.
Even people like Nguyen Kao Ky were originally from the Hanoi area. Catholics left North Vietnam in droves.
Its estimated that 600,000 South Vietnamese folks went for reeducation after 1975. Sentences were in multiples of 3 years, e.g., if your weren't properly compliant after 3 years, you got another 3.
Officers and government officials received longer sentences, 15 years being a norm.
Through wifey, I know lots of guys who got 3 years, and lots who got 15 years. At least two members of her family returned permanently crippled.

Yes and not only supporters of the Southern goverment, but ex VC as well, after they figured out that their fraternal socialist brothers from the North did not have the interestes of the Southerners at heart, and after they say what the Northern bastards had in mind.
