The recent news about shootings in #Vietnam's police stations in Đắk Lắk, a province in Central Highlands, may have now recaptured the issues about the history of Montagnards, a group of indigenous tribes living in the…
The shootings and recently captured assailants, published by state media, may only further indicated the possible historical grievances in a region that has been largely considered pacified by the Vietnamese regime. Image
Montagnards, the first indigenous peoples in the Highlands, has a long history of frictions with the Vietnamese rulers. The region was absorbed by the Nguyễn dynasty in the 19th century as part of Southward expansion, but Vietnamese made contacts even earlier than that. Image

Excited about PM @AlboMP upcoming visit to #Vietnam (and his @IISS_org #SLD2023 keynote!).

Hello, Connections! Welcome back to my weekly column #ATHCOriginal #AskATHC. Today, I want to discuss a rather controversial topic—#Women.

#UnitedShowbiz #Gender #eqyality #Education #womenempowerment #TedTalk #Inspiration #Movies
Last week, I discussed #ContentWriting, but today's topic is different. Before going further, I want to declare outright that I am not a feminist or atheist. I am just a pragmatic, who sees a glass & water as two distinct things rather than seeing it half-empty or half full.
World has moved forward. Girls have gone to space! But culture, religion, ethics, & social evils continue to haunt girls worldwide. I don't want to talk about India, you've plenty of cases where women face atrocities almost every single day here. #RuralIndia #WomenLifeFreedom

Just watched the #CNNTownhall with 2024 Presidential candidate and former President @realDonaldTrump , as well as the post-townhall panel discussion.

One thing is clear: #America is a broken country. It's split right down the middle.

Racial divisions and #massshootings are peaking, the economy is cratering, #poverty and #homelessness are rising.

And meanwhile, the US government is involved in, or threatening to get involved in, wars from #Ukraine to #Taiwan to #Syria to #Iran to #NorthKorea.

When they should be working on healing the divisions in their own nation. White vs non-White, Rural vs Urban, Rich vs Poor, drug addiction, broken homes - all these are tearing America apart.

1/Yesterday a flotilla of #China maritime militia ships moving SE executed an unusual 90deg turn, spread out & began moving SW—on a course that would intriguingly lead them directly into the #ASEAN-#India Maritime Exercise group headed NE from Singapore.
But wait… [🧵1/5] Image
2/What I didn’t see then was the militia ships were escorting survey ship Xiang Yang Hong 10. While seeing #China’s survey ships in #Vietnam’s exclusive economic zone isn’t new, it’s odd to see them escorted by so many militia.
Wait, there’s more… [2/5]…
3/Three hours ago, 2 #China Coast Guard ships also suddenly appeared on AIS, visibly joining the flotilla. How long they’ve been there is unknown, but now they want to be seen.
Also of note, #Vietnam fisheries ship Kiem Ngu 414 began shadowing the flotilla yesterday.
So… [3/5] Image

Il 6 giugno 1969, il Fronte Nazionale per la Liberazione del Vietnam del Sud (NLF) e altre organizzazioni politiche e sociali convocarono un congresso di rappresentanti del Sud che portò alla creazione del Governo Rivoluzionario Provvisorio della
Repubblica del Vietnam del Sud ( PRG), che inizierebbe a svolgere un ruolo decisivo nella formazione del potere rivoluzionario in questa parte del Paese . ImageImage
Va detto che dal 1970 la lotta in Laos e Cambogia, anch'essa occupata dagli USA, si è rafforzata ei patrioti di questi paesi hanno iniziato a coordinare i loro sforzi con le FNL per lo sviluppo della guerra rivoluzionaria. Image

In five years, #JoeBiden will likely get the #NobelPeacePrize. But not because he did anything proactively for peace.

It is because a #Multipolar World will be more peaceful than a unipolar one, and Biden has done more than anyone else (albeit unwittingly) to further that. (1/n)
The US-led #sanctions against #Russia in response to the #UkraineRussiaWar have forced countries around the world to abandon the US dollar as a medium of trade. This is forcing the rest of the world (non-West) together. Banning Russia from #swift was most important in this. (2/n)
#India and #China desperately need oil. Because of sanctions, Russia is providing oil at cheap rates to both. Russia has now become India's largest source of oil, displacing Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Chinese imports of Russian oil have also zoomed upwards. (3/n)

Long Thread:

China's “Pearl of Strings" Vs Bharat's “Diamond Necklace"!

Modern day wars are not to conquer Land Parcels, but to control Trade & Economies!

#China was lucky to be given a Free Hand by #UPA govt of CONgress which literally slept over Strategic Issues.

#China increased it's presence in Indian Ocean rampantly till 2014 through its Debt Trap Diplomacy to suit it's #StringsOfPearls strategy to contain Bharat's hold in Indian Ocean.

It created a ring around Bharat through strategically placed Nations.

How was it being done?

Via debt-trap policy! China lured strategically located nations around #Bharat to borrow Infra Loans. Once indebted, #China pressurized them to support its Geostrategic interests. This way, China got Control over Chittagong

1. oggi vedo su #Repubblica l'accusa più antica del mondo: i #pacifisti accusati di fare il gioco del nemico,di essere la quinta colonna della Russia o del dittatore di turno.C'è un libro maestoso che dovete leggere: "The Burglary" di Betty Medsger. E' solo in inglese
2. Betty Medsger era giornalista del Washington Post durante la guerra in #Vietnam: i pacifisti scelsero lei per farle arrivare un pacco di documenti che provavano la guerra sporca dell'#FBI di Edgar Hoover contro i pacifisti
3. un gruppo di #pacifisti,tra cui professori universitari di alta estrazione sociale, si addestrarono, entrarono la notte del famoso incontro di boxe Mohammed Ali-Frazier, nella sede dell'FBI e rubarono i documenti dell'FBI che provavano la guerra sporca contro i pacifisti

The Vietnam War’s most iconic helicopter, the UH-1 Iroquois “Huey” was a ubiquitous transport and gunship which came to represent the conflict in the public’s imagination.

First introduced in the 1950s, the U.S. Army soon adopted the UH-1 helicopter for use in a variety of roles. Its original designation was "HU" for "helicopter, utility" (hence the sobriquet "HUey"), which was later changed to "UH" for "utility helicopter."

#USArmy @USArmy
The UH-1 and its variants were the backbone of the Army’s new airmobile doctrine and performed a variety of roles. These included close air support gunships, assault aircraft for infantrymen, basic transport functions, and "air ambulances" for medical evacuation.

An LTC during the early phase of the Vietnam War, Hal Moore earned fame for his leadership during the Battle of Ia Drang, the U.S. Army’s first major combat engagement in Vietnam.
Graduating from West Point shortly after WWII, Moore served in the Korean War. In 1964, he participated in the training exercises of the experimental units tasked with testing the Army’s new airmobility doctrines.

#ArmyHistory #USArmy #TRADOC #VietnamWar #Vietnam #7thCavalry
Moore left for Vietnam in late summer 1965, joining the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). Beginning 14 NOV 1965, Moore put his experience with airmobile tactics to good use as he led the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment in the Battle of Ia Drang.

55 years ago today, American soldiers committed mass massacre and rape in a small Vietnamese village known as “My Lai 4.”

About hundred US G.I.s and officers were looking for Viet Cong soldiers in the village. But there were only women, girls, children and old men.

This region…… ImageImageImageImage
More photos:

Four years after My Lai massacre, investigative journalist Seymour Hersh wrote an article revealing the horrific details.

He got the Pulitzer Prize for this.

Voila presque 7ans (le temps passe vite !) que je vis au #Vietnam🇻🇳 et dans le cadre d'un cours que je dois preparer, je vais vous exposer ici 10 differences culturelles qui existent entre la #France🇫🇷 et le Vietnam 🇻🇳
Vous etes pret ? Alors allons y c'est parti !
1) le pays des deux roues
Les scooters sont clairement les rois au #Vietnam🇻🇳 et + de 90% de la population se déplace en deux roues. En France, on utilise essentiellement les voitures et/ou les transports en commun.
La circulation est chaotique, mais on s’y habitue rapidement !
2) La rue
La rue sert souvent de prolongement des maisons, il n'est pas rare de voir des gens s'attabler dehors avec nourriture,des bieres et parfois des karaokes devant chez eux
Au #Vietnam, il est courant d’avoir les maisons ouvertes, alors qu’en France c'est un espace prive

Information for Libya! #Libya #Libyans

Hillary Clinton's leaked emails revealed that NATO eliminated Muammar Gaddafi in order to stop the formation of the United States of Africa.

When Gaddafi said: "This is our continent, our banks, our currency. We strive for independence." That was the last straw.

Ucrania 🇺🇦 Vs Rusia 🇷🇺
La situación no ha cambiado y en #Bakhmut solo resisten unos pocos militares ucranianos. La diferencia de tropas y armamento, fue crucial para los invasores con los mercenarios del G. Wagner al frente. De hecho hace dos días los rusos pasean por la ciudad.
En #Bakhmut la resistencia de los ucranianos fue de un coraje increíble. Aún unos pocos quedan ahí, y hay combates aislados. Los rusos siguen con la misma táctica que desarrollaron en la destruida #Mariupol. Hay habitantes (personas mayores), que nunca se irán de sus casas.
⚠️ Hago un paréntesis:
En todo el mundo existen “nuevos corresponsales de guerra”, pero detrás de una pantalla, y a miles de Km de la zona invadida.
No solo eso, sino que simpatizan como fanáticos por #Putin o por #Zelensky.
⚠️Yo tampoco estoy en el lugar, pero trato de informar.

#Ericsson fined $207m for concealing internal probe into bribes paid to #ISIS

The #Swedish company was involved in a large scale corruption scheme across several #Asian countries…
#Swedish telecom giant Ericsson has been fined $207 million for violating a deferred prosecution deal with US authorities by concealing evidence of serious misconduct in #Iraq, where the company reportedly bribed #ISIS to access a specific transport route between 2011 & 2019.
In a statement issued on 2 March, Ericsson said it had entered “a guilty plea regarding previously deferred charges relating to conduct prior to 2017” for not disclosing its inquiry to the US authorities.…

The late Soviet leader Mikhail #Gorbachev warned — echoing President #Eisenhower — that the “greatest danger to the world is the military industrial complex.”

The first concentration camp: #Thalerhof — where thousands of Russians (and those merely suspected of Russian allegiance) were tortured, starved, and murdered in #WWI.
