Besides, they also use the mass media, the media and their powerful minions to publish and propagate false information, the words say sophistry handing, to squeeze distorted the truth to cover up and protect their misconduct before the International Community and to the people of Vietnam in country and abroad. It is time for the Government of the United States and European countries need to implement interventions stronger and more effective way to express his true role in the Democratic Liberal advocate and protect for human rights worldwide.
