"What is this alliance": Vietnam reacts negatively to words about the purpose of the appearance of a US Navy destroyer south of Ho Chi Minh City

73

On the eve of the "Military Review" reported how the American warship "John McCain" appeared in the waters south of Vietnamese Ho Chi Minh. At the same time, the American military command explained the maneuvers of the US Navy destroyer as follows: "These are steps to challenge the excessive Vietnamese claims to the water area south of the port of Ho Chi Minh." The US also added that it "provided security for civilian shipping," without specifying how Vietnam is interfering with this shipping today.


Meanwhile, such statements by US Navy officials and the very appearance of an American destroyer near the Con Dao Islands are being commented on in Vietnam itself. Words about "excessive Vietnamese claims to the waters south of Ho Chi Minh City" caused a negative reaction among the Vietnamese.

It is noted that "it is necessary to draw conclusions about the friends and enemies of Vietnam" against the backdrop of events near Con Dao. At the same time, the emphasis is placed on the following episode: at the moment when the American destroyer "took steps to challenge Vietnamese claims," ​​the Indian Navy ship "Kiltan" delivered tons of humanitarian aid to the Vietnamese port of Nha Rong (still in Ho Chi Minh City). This is humanitarian aid to the regions of Vietnam affected by the floods and pandemic.

Also ships of the naval fleet Vietnam conducted two-day maneuvers in the South China Sea together with the ships of the Indian Navy.

In Vietnam, Indian aid was appreciated:

The Indian Navy is delivering humanitarian aid to our people, and the US, calling itself our ally, is staging a demonstration of military might off our shores. What is this alliance ...

      There, the whole question is about money, the resort area of ​​Vietnam is in great demand among US citizens, brings Vietnam a good income and investments for its development. Ideologically, Vietnam and the United States, as they were opponents, remain so.
      It is also worth considering the rather difficult relationship between Vietnam and China, multiplied by territorial disputes, the last war between them was in 1979.
      From here it is not clear what the Mattress Makers really wanted to achieve? It is clear that they achieved nothing except "irritation".

        «What is this alliance": Vietnam reacts negatively to the words about the purpose of the appearance of the US Navy destroyer south of Ho Chi Minh City.

        Natural reaction. Only 45 years have passed since the end of the war, and the memory has remained.



        Perhaps some forces in Vietnam itself wanted a different reaction from society, but the mass of still living veterans and victims of American aggression will not, at least for now, fulfill such desires.

      Not really fast. A different generation has actually grown up. Another generation has grown up in that war, which did not take part. And instead of Russian in schools, they are already learning English and they want to go not to Moscow, but to New York and on their screens, like here, Hollywood.
      With the change of generations, our attitude towards the Germans also changed. (although more time has passed)

        Not only has our attitude towards the Germans changed for the better (their Nazism is prosecuted by law), but our attitude towards the Ukrainians has also changed (Nazism flourishes there) - so that the balance in the world is maintained, I'm only afraid that the results will be very similar.

      It is also symbolic here that a battleship named after John McCain appeared in Vietnamese waters, the same one that the Vietnamese shot down in the sky over Vietnam and fed fried grasshoppers for several years. He is still a "friend" of the Vietnamese people.

        Senator McCain didn't make a name on board.
        This EM URO was named after two other McCains - his grandfather and father, admirals, WWII participants (grandfather fought on aircraft carriers, father - on submarines). However, dad managed to be noted in the Vietnam War.

      They do not yet know that every 1st American calls them, the Japanese and the Chinese, not otherwise than yellow macaques. What can we say about the striped military, that's where racism is.

    The Indian Navy is delivering humanitarian aid to our people, and the US, calling itself our ally, is staging a demonstration of military might off our shores. What is this alliance ...
    McCain, even deceased, cannot leave this country alone. Apparently, he really liked being in captivity! Allies are shitty.

    The Americans clicked on the nose of yet another "ally", showing him a real attitude towards such alliances.
    But it is unlikely that the Vieta now have a choice, China is near, Russia prefers to be friends with him, so they will get tired and will bow even lower.

    Let the Vietnamese listen to the song "Phantom", everything is very clear there. We found striped allies for ourselves, one laugh.

      I run on scorched earth
      Hermeshlem slammed on the go.
      My "Phantom" with a white arrow,
      On the spread wing
      With a roar gaining altitude.
      My "Phantom" with a white arrow,
      On the spread wing
      With a roar gaining altitude.

      Vizy bluish distance,
      It’s just a pity to make it so.
      It’s a pity you don’t see her,
      Our way is far and far
      My Phantom is heading east.

      I make a left turn
      I'm an executioner now, not a pilot.
      Stooping over the scope
      And the rockets rush towards the goal
      There is another run ahead.

      Vizhy in the sky a white line,
      My Phantom is losing altitude.
      Catapult is salvation
      And the sling tension.
      Heart in heels, in a corkscrew I go.

      Just landed, in an instant
      A wild cry rang out from Kyst.
      Yellowstone Vietnamese
      Weeping in the cysts, like hares,
      I fell to the ground and fell silent.

      Walking the damned land again
      There is no helmet on the head.
      Behind the gun barrel
      Soldiers poke me in the back
      My life is hanging by a thread.

      "Who is the pilot who shot me down?" -
      One Vietnamese I asked
      Answered me that slant that he commanded the interrogation:
      "Our pilot Li Si Tsin shot you down"

      It is you, the Vietnamese, lying for nothing
      I clearly heard in the headset:
      "Kolya, press, and I'll cover!"
      "Vanya, hit, and I'll cover!"
      Russian ace Ivan hit me

      Somewhere far away in native Texas
      At home, my father and mother are waiting for me
      My "phantom" exploded quickly in the sky blue and clear
      I can't see you anymore

    They evaluate and react not to words, but to social facts: actions and their (possible) consequences.

    Ho Chi Minh City in a coffin no longer knows which side they are turning over, so it spins like a squirrel in a wheel in the name of Vietnamese-American friendship

    Vietnam ... From 1965 to 1973 they were hollowed out, hollowed out. Thanks to the USSR and China, they didn't finish. But since 2017, the United States is again an ally and the foundation of defense cooperation is the coincidence of interests of the two countries. It's ridiculous that to screw up China, they conclude agreements with the shittest ally possible, and then they are surprised at the actions of the United States.
