Do Minh Tuyen
When people who close their eyes swept their hands across the world ... meant abandoning everything in this life for rest in peace as our old Grandparents has ever said " Death is the end ." Yes , it is so common ... but really only true for the common people ... while some characters who even death still remain in people's minds the impression . images .. can never fade . In today's world , when it comes to legendary figures King of clowns Charger Lot ( Charlie Chaplin ) people will remember even the movements of his humor ... and when it comes to character was born the same month, same year with him , who had been a turbulent time for causing the world , dictator Hitler , is everyone ... think of the genocide of the Jews before by him... or as mentioned on the talented leader of prominent Communist Vietnam , President Ho Chi Minh ... is nobody can forget the " land reform " his bloody in 1956 in northern Vietnam , which claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in a miscarriage of justice ...
And now ... the character is known as a hero communist general , brilliant talented , this General Vo Nguyen Giap ... after death will leave an imprint ... and what for posterity ... ? . Well, maybe no one would deny the merits ... the winner is to be defeated Empire stunned both US- French ... which the largest serve belongs to him... and right as remarks of U.S. Senator , Mr. John . McCain ... that the General Giap is a military strategic genius . However, Mr. John McCain also explain why America lost in the Vietnam war ... it is because this talented General...be ready "Accept all major loss " .. . well as " the almost complete destruction of his country " to achieve victory ... and himself ... McCain also stated that in terms of morality , then it is difficult ... heart which protect the military strategy ( immoral ) ... that the authorities in Hanoi has always been proud of the General Giap .
In summary, in addition to the appreciation of the achievements ( despite ethics ) of this talented general communist ... then we saw the death of the communism General Vo Nguyen Giap does not save anything for posterity future ... not to mention that he has ever done as an important tool of President Ho Chi Minh in the introduction of communism wrong , harmful and cruel to the native country of Vietnam ... lead to the sacrifice of hundreds thousands of innocent people ... as well as the current disastrous situation in Vietnam . We do not want ... also as should not insult the dead ... however, all of us also need to sharply define and recognize correctly for both of serves and offence of character of the supposedly this legendary ... Let the site 's history is recognized , saved objectively and honestly ... as well as for future posterity will not go misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the history of the kings , the meritorious officials , generals ... and the leader of the State of Vietnam .
Then , in a long article than the U.S. website reported the Wall Street Journal published on 06.10.2013 , he recalled some memories and his assessment of his former opponents that he has had the opportunity meeting .
As noted by the French news agency AFP , from Friday , 04 / 10 , immediately after his death Giap was revealed , the Twitter website , McCain praised the late minister was a " strategic military genius » .
Two days later , former pilots who were taken prisoner in Vietnam ( his plane was shot down in 1967 over the skies of Hanoi ) evaluated more about who has successfully dislodge U.S. forces out of Vietnam , and recalled the memories he retained after met General Giap twice .
Explain why the United States lost in Vietnam , John McCain raised « steely determination " of General Giap , ready to accept the « great loss " and " the almost complete destruction of his country 'to win ' any opponent , no matter how strong the enemy is nowhere matter » . However , for Mr. McCain : " It's hard to be able to protect that strategy at the level of morality , but we can not deny the success of it » .
Nevertheless , the Senator retains some memories of General Giap , confirmed that he had met twice, in two completely opposite situation together .
The first time was at war ongoing . Then , he was in a Vietnam military hospital where he was held shortly after his plane was shot down in Hanoi . He wrote : " Because my father was commander of all U.S. forces in the Pacific , I became attracted the curiosity of some government departments in Northern Vietnam ".
McCain continued a day after a high -level delegation to visit him along with a number of guards and the interrogators that he met every day . The only person that he was aware of guests is General Giap , Defense Minister of North Vietnam . General Giap only stay a short time , look at McCain and left without saying a single word .
The second time , Sen. McCain met General Giap is the early 1990s , when McCain had repeatedly reached Vietnam to discuss issues the U.S. and American prisoners of war missing , as well as normal Vietnamese American cultural relations .
In his request to the Secretary of Vietnam at that time was Mr. Nguyen Co Thach and Deputy Foreign Minister Le Mai , he was taken to General Giap in the living room of the President of Vietnam government . What makes McCain resonates as the two sides meet « as old allies , not as former enemies » .
What makes Mr. McCain is that he is very disappointed to hear directly Giap described his defeat as the battle of Dien Bien Phu , how about the way he built « Ho Chi Minh Trail » was, as he says McCain , which is a feat in terms of logistics . However , the question of McCain are each short answer , brings no new information . In contrast Giap just want to talk about the future of bilateral relations that are no longer enemies became friends .
At the end of the conversation , he demanded John McCain tried General Giap is true that he was against the Vietnam sent troops into Cambodia or not . Even this question - McCain recalls - and was rejected with a saying something like « The decisions of the Party ( Communist Vietnam ) is always right ".
