外文标题：Why does Vietnam love America but hates China?
I was surprised that the Vietnamese would be more forgiving to the Americans than the Chinese who have similar culture considering what they did to them like the million deaths, agent orange and destruction resulting in a war torn nation.
the past is the past. china the biggest threat to Vietnam as of this moment.
Remember threat = capability + intention, we have the capability but we don't have any intention to threaten Vietanmese future, in contrary when China prosper, we want Vietnam to share the prosperity. If we really want harm it, we could have cut the RED River and 1/3 of Vietamese will be in total chaos including Hanoi.
why would you attack Vietnam after the war?? would a friend do that or someone who wants them to prosper???
and as for the second part China rise is all thanks to the U.S.
are you talking the 1979 war? and for the second part, there is no free lunch with US. you earn money by polluting our lands, we dont have such environemental issue in Mao area.
you blame us for your pollution? i guess that's partially true, but no one is forcing China to pollute it's air,land, and water.
China is the No 1 trader and perhaps the largest investor too for vietnam.
The US only invaded them for a decade. China did so for hundreds of years.
U.S tried to stop the NVA invasion.
imagine if the U.S and South Vietnam had won. Vietnam would be in the same class of Japan,South Korea, and Taiwan economically today.
Thailand and The Phillipines are no richer than Vietnam despite remaining in the US sphere of influence.
lol. Did you even bother reading up on why China "invaded" Vietnam? China has a LOT of neighbors, only one constantly whines about being invaded. That some one that constantly attacks Chinese allies.
Keep in mind half the country was fighting along side the US. It wasn't the US against the entire country.
I can't speak for those two countries, but I would think they have wasted their potential...especially the Philippines.
