    I'm doubtful the government/military would want to nuke its own people/civilians, because government officials/military would themselves suffer too many losses. i.e.-loss of property, loss of family members.

    I know. This is all tongue-in-cheek to those who want guns to protect
    themselves from democratically elected governments. I just take the
    argument to its logical conclusion, ie how can your assault rifle save
    you from a government with tanks, F35's, satellites, mortars and nukes?

    Good point. We the people then should be allowed Manpads or Stinger missiles.

    I'm doubtful anybody wants to destroy everything with nukes, but you bring up a valid point about how the citizenry needs greater weapons than assault rifles. We the people should be allowed to have a more powerful arsenal of weapons such as stinger missiles and anti-tank missiles in order to combat a government who wants to take away our constitutional rights.

    Many tried to find refuge in Hong Kong, and were not well
    received. Lots in the USA, generally making model
    citizens of themselves

    I have nothing good to say for either (any) side in that conflict.

    The ethnjc Chinese in S Vietnam behaved in a disgraceful
    and ultimately self-destructive way. The Americans hadnt a
    clue who was who, or did not care.

    The Viets, like Filipinos, Cambodians, Malays etc rightly
    resent Chinese in their countries, dominating commerce,
    isolating thd,mselves from society at large.

    The ethnic Chinese behaved badly in s viet, the Vietnamese
    when the wheel came 'round behaved worse.

    Current regime just wants power but that smart, energetic
    people wont stand by forever watching themselves get
    left further and further behind, more at the mercy of their
    ageold enemy in China.

    I don't understand your argument then about Vietcong losing. They were part of the Vietnamese effort to throw out the US and take South Vietnam for North Vietnam.

    Yes they were... Many of the armaments came from China and Russia. Russian AK-47s which were actually the better assault rifles in the war, Chinese anti-aircraft...

    VCs was mainly North Vietnamese while China actually was the primary force defending North Vietnam and Hanoi. US didn't want to invade North Vietnam because it was really scared of enabling China and Russia more into the war. So it settled for simply defending South Vietnam.

    I am glad you msde it.

    All the Vietnamese I have known were fine people,
    some just plain extraordinary. Thd USA should have
    taken more.

    I have been at an airport, recently, observing a Viet
    family reunite, after who knows how many years.

    They keep their composure in public, somehow.

    I cant. I offered to take a group photo, so they
    could all be in it one time. An older lady saw
    my tears, and gave me a look to cherish for a
    lifetime.

    That is why (we) Asians are often resented. Work too hard.

    People value hard workers here, so it sounds strange that someone would be resented for hard work. Though we're getting lazier by the decade.

    Technically yes. It should be defended as free speech.

    However givin the clear mental and bizzare states a lot of people are expressing today , i can see why such measures are considered so it's a call that imo should be handled on a case by case basis.

    The real reason we lost the war.
    We played chess.
    They played go.

    For the unfamiliar, in go, one has continually supplied pieces, which are often sacrificed.
