The brotherhood of Communism seems to be breaking down. Hope the Vietnamese learn a harsh lesson from partnering up with the ChiComs back in the day.

Looks like this is quickly devolving into a full fledged shooting war...can we root for both sides to lose?

China is like an overgrown Honey Badger on a wrecking spree, they don’t give a damn what the United Nations or NYT says.

The Chinese are pushing for a war because the know that king obama will draw a red line in the sand and then go play golf. Here in the Philippines, the chinese are ripping up coral on some of the so called disputed islands and sending it back to china. The PI military and govt is incapable of doing anything about it. This is going to get ugly soon.

Hey China!

Hope you enjoy your vacation in Viet Nam as much as we did!

(Be sure to take the Tunnel Tour.)

If I recall correctly the Chinese invaded Vietnam in 1979, so the animosity may not be completely new.

It’s dirty communists fighting rotten communists, just like in 1979.

Plus a mutual hatred that goes back more than two millennia.

Ho Chi Minh wouldn’t accept aid from the ChiComs. His s*** all came from the Soviet Union.

“You fools! Don’t you realize what it means if the Chinese remain? Don’t you remember your history? The last time the Chinese came, they stayed a thousand years. The French are foreigners. They are weak. Colonialism is dying. The white man is finished in Asia. But if the Chinese stay now, they will never go. As for me, I prefer to sniff French s—t for five years than to eat Chinese s—t for the rest of my life.” - Ho Chi Minh

The problem is, America is building up China very rapidly.

America needs to stop importing everything from China.

Bring back American jobs.

I don’t think there will be much to compare. Unlike toe idiots we had getting our people killed for nothing, China will just level the place with whatever it takes to meet their goals.

No hippies to wind up the folks at home and the folks at home could care less anyway.

And the tunnel tour will be closed on account of nuclear collapse and gasses settling in them.

With that quote you’ve proved to me that Ho Chi Minh was not overly concerned with Marxist political orthodoxy. He first and foremost seems to be a nationalist. If Marxist- Leninist political philosophy got Vietnam to be independent, so be it. But I suspect that if Ho Chi Minh thought some other political philosophy would’ve helped them better (and bankrolled them as the Soviets did) He would’ve espoused that philosophy instead. JMHO.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang commented on the incident on 27 May noting:

It is to our knowledge that yesterday afternoon, in the waters off China’s Xisha Islands, a Vietnamese fishing ship broke into the cordoned-off area of China’s drilling rig 981, and capsized after ramming into the rear port side of a Chinese fishing ship that was operating nearby

LOL! He ran into my fist! I swear!

The Chinese propaganda machine laid bare. Almost like reading Russia Today.

Unless that he is the kind of Marxist who will lie to get people to support him.

One thing, he was no dummy.

Absolutely right. America and Canada both need to bring back the manufacturing base.

Whenever I buy anything if at all possible, I buy made in USA or Canada, even if it means spending more.

I refuse to openly support my enemy.
