4 decades later, Hmong who helped the US 'fight communism' are still persecuted and on the run.

The culture is very violent
The women are treated like 2cnd class citizens and pediphiles are accepted
I hated my time in Vietnam and have been disappointed with the Vietnamese people I have met

Any petitions that I can sign? Sure, they may not help - but at least they will give the Hmong a bit of support.

I wonder how many other ethnic groups that have helped us in the past have gotten the royal shaft. The international community really needs to do a lot more about the plight of the Hmong. If other nations have no problem turning on Israel over the Gaza crisis, imagine what they could do to help the Hmong find safe places to not just live but thrive.

The Vietnam War is not over, to the extent that most wars last many years, after the fighting has ceased.
The repercussions of any war, last for many years after the fact.

The U.S.A. fights wars in many other countries (not ours), and we are not aware of the after effects. In fact, we don't want to know, which makes it even worse.

Winning a war seldom changes the defeated.
