On Friday 102 years old General Giap died.Great warrior who defeated super power by will, spirit and courage.he was not a regular soldier but he united Vietnamese and fought against French army and defeated them in Dian-Bien -Phu siege , European power surrendered to tiny Asian nation. USA deterred Vietnam to help south Vietnam to restore democracy but it was an eyewash. They tested their advanced weapons and used chemical weapon 'Agent Orange' but could not defeat Vietnam. Spirit and sword, Spirit won against sword. Vietnam and her people fought a battle and Americans bite the dust. Post WWII , it was a great military victory and proved just weapons and resources can not win war. We pay homage to this great general of 20 th century and hero of third world.
Thank you guys. I appreciate anti-war attitude and contain super power ambitions to dictate world affairs. Political system either Democracy or dictatorship or Authoritarian system cannot be forced on any nation. People of that nations only decide what they want. Arms lobby and Military-Industrial complex was a glamor of the 60s but it has to be dismantled. Cold war is still on but not by military might but on trade, economic and for resources , claims for areas and transnational rivers and water distribution are going on in different parts of the world. In south China sea nations have bitter clashes for oil blocs and resources. Resource sharing can be done by consensus and not by military conflicts
