Vietnam. . . Syria
Two very different countries, but each with a long and proud history and culture. Both had to endure a long and bloody war of foreign aggression and terrorism waged against them by outside forces. In both cases, media disinformation played a major role in fuelling war, and confusing public opinion. Finally, Viet Nam won its war for independence and reunification, with active support of a world-wide anti-war movement. Today, Syria is gaining more support as people wake up to the real horrors of this war. Like Viet Nam, Syria is fighting for its very survival as an independent, sovereign state against foreign terrorists seeking "regime change" and "divide and conquer" for their own strategic agendas. Recalling some of the history of the anti-war movement during the Vietnam War, may be relevant and constructive in helping Syria win its right to peace too. It is healthy to learn from history, and honour those who struggled for peace and justice in the past. . .
