I don't know.

Of course, in the past, Vietnam learn from China, learn from Mao and kill people when divide paddy-field for farmer. It's true, my grandfather is the victim of bourgeois agrarian reform.
But after that, Ho Chi Minh president cried and said sorry to all people. Vietnam have carried out the reform in politics. We develop by our way, we don't learn China, Korea way, ok!

Now, Vietnam is the development country, many people from USA, Canada, Republic of Korea, Japan live in there.
Intel, Samsung, Honda... invest alots of money, factory in Vietnam.

My country very peaceful, never have bomb blast like Thailand, Pakistan.
Summer is the time: many foreign tourist visit Vietnam.

So If Communist party of Vietnam is evil like you say, My country will not be the president of ASIAN 2010, not have more than 3 millions foreign tourist.
I didn't say communist governments = evil. I said that because of Mao, Stalin, and Mengitsu, and Kim Jong Il, communist governments are usually thought of as being evil even if they aren't.

And as I stated before, the Vietnamese and US governments are now forming a military partnership of sorts.

I've been to Vietnam. Strangely I liked Hanoi more than Saigon.

Can I ask how did you find our forum? Just curious.
oh! I join in some English forums to improve my English.

With a history forum, i see a lots of people have a wrong thinking about Vietnam now. So i must write the true in my country.

Vietnamese is very friendly, hospitable. We live in a good society without terrorist, bomb blash or demonstration to oppose goverment.

Vietnam have 1 party, but we always have democracy.
About human rights, some powerful country invent a funny story about Vietnam. But Vietnam is one of the countries sign human rights law soon after we have the independance. Vietnam is the second country sign childrent rights.

IF you want to travel, Vietnam welcome you, we have many resorts cheaper than Malay or Thailand.

In my country many people from Eastern Asia come to work, usually they own shops at one of the districts. And i must say that Asians, nevermind if they are chinese or vietnamese or others, are extremely secretive, rarely do they have friends among the bulgarians or other ethnicites, they live in closed communities, in which they communicate only between each other.
Now im not saying that vietnamese are hostile, or not friendly in general, but at least i have stayed with such an imperssion.

I remamber during the communism in Bulgaria many people know about Vietnam, people spoke about Vietnam in a good manner.

sturm: Being an expat myself, I fully understand how hard it would be for an Asian to not appear "secretive".....Europe is just SO very different than over here.

Oh, living in a strange society is always hard for all people, not only Vietnamese.
My idea is: Vietnamese is hospitable & friendly with foreign tourist, foreign people in Vietnam.

Yeah i guess its the cultural differencess and most importantly the language barrier..
Though bulgarians who go abroad actually rarely do keep contact with other bulgarians, in fact they prefer keeping contact with the people from the country they are in.

OK! Three minds are in unity here!
I once lived in a rooming house in Germany with 2 Vietnamese ladies. They spoke no English and very little German, so naturally they seemed shy.

Later I worked very closely with English speaking Vietnamese men and women in our university: they were exceptionally bright and friendly and industrious beyond all other students, and several became close friends, dfining and visiting us at our home.
