PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

HO CHI MINH CITY – SAIGON  -PREI NOKOR
 
Published: 18 January 2019
 
You can call this place, or any place for that matter, any name you like.
 
Ho Chi Minh is not his real name 
 
and Pre Nokor was the original name 11 & 12 Century
 
 under the Cambodian Khymer Regime means Forest Kingdom
 
Saigon was Sai gon given by those fleeing the Trịnh–Nguyễn War from the North
 
It became Gia Định when the Vietnamese controlled it until
 
The French conquest of Vietnam in 1860 and a Colony in 1862 until 1954
 
 followed  the Nguyen dynasty.
 
The Tay Son Rebellions  was  the period of peasant rebellions and decentralized dynasties established between the

 
end of the figurehead Lê dynasty in 1770 and the beginning of the Nguyễn dynasty in 1802. 
 

The name of the rebel leaders’ home district, Tây Sơn, came to be applied to the leaders themselves.
 
The French stripped the country of its rubber and rice.
 
After the capture of Vietnam by the British in 1945, Saigon was given back to the French
 
The French Japanese British Chinese and American’s all Colonial interests in Vietnam
 
And another 30 years of war for INDEPENDENCE began.
 
Vietnam had been absorbed into French Indochina in stages between 1858 and 1887. Nationalism grew until World

 
War II provided a break in French control. 
 

Early Vietnamese resistance centered on the intellectual Phan Bội Châu. 
 
Châu looked to Japan, which had modernized and was one of the few Asian nations to successfully resist European

 
colonization.
 

After the capture of Vietnam by the British in 1945, Saigon was given back to the French
 
And 30 years of war began.
 
First Indochina War
 
Part of the Indochina Wars, the Cold War, and the decolonisation of Asia
————————————————————————–
South Vietnam State of Vietnam (1949–1954)
 
The First Indochina War (generally known as the Indochina War in France, and as the Anti-French Resistance War in

 
Vietnam) began in French Indochina on December 19, 1946, and lasted until July 20, 1954. 
 

Fighting between French forces and their Việt Minh opponents in the south dated from September 1945. 
 
The conflict pitted a range of forces, including the French Union’s French Far East Expeditionary Corps, led by

 
France and supported by Bảo Đại’s Vietnamese National Army against the Việt Minh, led by Ho Chi Minh and the

 
People’s Army of Vietnam led by Võ Nguyên Giáp. 
 

Most of the fighting took place in Tonkin in northern Vietnam, although the conflict engulfed the entire country and

 
also extended into the neighboring French Indochina protectorates of Laos and Cambodia.

————————————————————————————————
Division of North and South
 
At the Potsdam Conference in July 1945, the Combined Chiefs of Staff decided that Indochina south of latitude 16°

 
north was to be included in the Southeast Asia Command under British Admiral Mountbatten. 
 

Japanese forces located south of that line surrendered to him and those to the north surrendered to Generalissimo

 
Chiang Kai-shek.

 

In September 1945, Chinese forces entered Tonkin, and a small British task force landed at Saigon. 
 
The Chinese accepted the Vietnamese government under Ho Chi Minh, then in power in Hanoi.
 
 The British refused to do likewise in Saigon, and deferred to the French there from the outset, against the

 
ostensible support of the Việt Minh authorities by American OSS representatives.

——————————————————————————————————
American War
 
How it started…..
 
At the International Geneva Conference on July 21, 1954, the new socialist French government and the Việt Minh

 
made an agreement which effectively gave the Việt Minh control of North Vietnam above the 17th parallel. 
 

The south continued under Bảo Đại. 
 
The agreement was denounced by the State of Vietnam and by the United States. 
 
A year later, Bảo Đại would be deposed by his prime minister, Ngô Đình Diệm, creating the Republic of Vietnam. 
 
Soon an insurgency, backed by the north, developed against Diệm’s government.
 
 The conflict gradually escalated into the Vietnam War (1955-1975).
———————————————————————————————-
How the Americans claimed they lost the war in Indo China
 
America Lost the Vietnam War for a Very Simple Reason.
 
 And Its Japan’s Fault.
 
In March of 1945, and just five months before surrendering to the Allies, Japan did 
 
something with profound consequences: it conquered Vietnam—and ultimately embroiled 
 
the United States in its first lost war.
 
To be accurate, Japan did not seize Vietnam as we conceive of Vietnam today. It seized 
 
French Indochina, that region of Southeast Asia comprising Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, 
 
which France had conquered in the name of the French Empire.
 
AND IT IS THE NEXT CHAPTER IN THE HISTORY OF VIETNAM THAT COVERS THE STORY OF THE YANKS LOSS
