Viet Nam Cong San
The Viet Cong (Việt cộng ( )), or National Liberation Front, was a political organization and army in South Vietnam and Cambodia that fought the United States and South Vietnamese governments during the Vietnam War (1959–1975), and emerged on the winning side. It had both guerrilla and regular army units, as well as a network of cadres who organized peasants in the territory it controlled. Many soldiers were recruited in South Vietnam, but others were attached to the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN), the regular North Vietnamese army. During the war, communists and anti-war spokesmen insisted the Viet Cong was an insurgency indigenous to the South, while the U.S. and South Vietnamese governments portrayed the group as a tool of Hanoi. Although the terminology distinguishes northerners from the southerners, communist forces were under a single command structure set up in 1958.
North Vietnam established the National Liberation Front in 1960 to ferment insurgency in the South. Many of the Viet Cong's core members were "regroupees," southern Viet Minh who had resettled in the North after the Geneva Accord (1954). Hanoi gave the regroupees military training and sent them back to the South along the Ho Chi Minh trail in the early 1960s. The NLF called for southern Vietnamese to "overthrow the camouflaged colonial regime of the American imperialists" and to make "efforts toward the peaceful unification." The Viet Cong's best-known action was the Tet Offensive, a massive assault on more than 100 South Vietnamese urban centers in 1968, including an attack on the US embassy in Saigon. The offensive riveted the attention of the world's media for weeks, but also overextended the Viet Cong. Later communist offensives were conducted predominately by the North Vietnamese. The organisation was dissolved in 1976 when North and South Vietnam were officially unified under a communist government.

Thái Hữu Tình 08-10-2014 Thủ tướng Nguyễn Tấn Dũng Mừng thọ GS Vũ Khiêu Với mấy chữ “Sơn hà linh khí tại, Kim cổ nhất hiền nhân” mà ông Thủ tướng đem tặng cho ông cụ Vũ Khiêu, người tự hào là dòng dõi quan Kinh lược sứ người Tàu cai trị An nam, thì cả văn lẫn ý đều đã phơi bày đơn giản, nông cạn, thiết nghĩ chẳng có gì đáng để “khảo cứu” về chữ nghĩa và bình luận dài dòng. 1/ Về nghĩa thì câu ấy ca ngợi ông Vũ Khiêu là “Linh khí của non sông nằm ở đây, ở con người Vũ Khiêu này, đây là một bậc hiền nhân (hoặc hiền nhân duy nhất) từ xưa tới nay”! Cứ tưởng viết về Nguyễn Trãi, ai ngờ viết về hậu duệ của ông quan Vũ Hồn người Hoa! Ông Vũ Khiêu tuy cũng là người có chữ nghĩa nhưng đã được giới văn chương tử tế nước ta bây giờ mệnh danh là “vị Giáo sư mừng đảng mừng xuân”, “Giáo sư chỉ biết còn đảng còn mình”! Ông VK chỉ dốc lòng tôn vinh thứ chủ nghĩa Mác-Lê mà nhân loại đã vứt vào sọt rác, cũng như ông đã tâng bốc một vị kỹ sư dám sửa bậy, bôi nhem thơ Nguyễn Du, thì (mặc dù có sự tôn trọng người cao tuổi) nhưng vẫn phải xếp ông vào loại kẻ sĩ cần được xem lại, cả về tri thức và nhân cách! Trí thức thời “a- còng” này không ai còn có thể cúc cung vái lậy những vật ở bãi phế thải như cái chủ nghĩa mà ông ông tôn thờ? Read the rest of this entry ».
