I am reading Vietnamese Gulag by Doan Van Toi and it makes me think if I was in Nam during the wars with the French and then the US I would have been on the side of the north and fought Americans. Doan was a good communist kid who ends up in a Gulag after America leaves and becomes very disenchanted with who he chose in the war but that is another story. He grew up in a small village constantly bombed by the French and then the Americans who also installed a puppet regime in the South that did nothing but harm the people. He also watched as his society turned into nothing but whores and thieves as the American presence grew.
I know I know, THEIR were no good guys not there. Don't start on me.
