Story: As the Title says. "Uncle Ho" admired the Americans and their struggle to be independant from England so he wrote to the White House to ask for American help in getting the French to leave his country as they'd originally claimed it as a Colony. But the American government took the side of the French against him because Ho had Communist leanings and we all know how this turned out. It was understandable as the French had supported the Americans in their original War of Independence.
       When the Japanese invaded various countries they tried to get the people on their side by convincing them how badly they'd been used by the countries that had controlled them as Colonies and how easy it was to defeat them in battle. The Japanese were much worse and brutal than the old Rulers but the idea of freedom remained in the heads of the people after the Japanese were defeated. All it took was to get the right people to start the ball rolling and Uncle Ho was the man. The age of Imperialist Power was over. When asked the people sometimes say that they might have corrupt governments but the government's are from themselves and not foreigners. It's sad that the U.S. didn't understand this and had to blunder into this war as they could have avoided it, Bad Advise they've always been good at. Stupid Politicians. They're so dumb but think they're so clever. 004407
