Re: BBC4 Vietnam
The VC were undoubtedly a very effective guerrilla army, but after the fall of Saigon they turned vast swathes of the population into slaves, forcing city dwellers into the fields to dig and farm whist armed VC guards pointed guns at them.

South Vietnam was no paradise before 1975 either of course. The government was corrupt and incompentent and the US military turned Saigon into a gigantic playground where alcohol, drugs and prostitution replaced the genteel cafe society of the former French colonialists.

But even the excesses of the American GIs were as nothing compared to the horrors of life under the communists. All forms of personal freedom were suppressed, property confiscated and any form of dissent punished by death.

Anyone who glorifies the VC as freedom fighters is just ignorant of what came next after the helicopters evacuated the last Americans from the embassy roof.

My wife visited Virtnam about 20 years ago. She was taken to see the tunnels.

Apparently they've widened some specifically so Western tourists can get in and have a look. :)

Re: BBC4 Vietnam
Been an absolute brilliant piece of TV... the stuff on the My Lai massacre was fucking grim... how the fuck only one man was made accountable for that is beyond me... and teh helicopter pilots that saved the villagers were castigated by a load of congress as traitors?? WTF!! Anyway absolutely brilliant piece of TV.... also worth watching is the Tom Hanks produced `The Sixties' on SKY Arts...

It's superb, especially as it provides the point of view from the North Vietnamese/VC for once.
