Vietnam War: Whose truths?

first_imgWhen the Vietnamese people smashed U.S. imperialism’s attempt to conquer their country in 1975, the imperialist propaganda machine immediately began rewriting and distorting the history of the decades-long struggle for Vietnam’s national liberation.The Public Broadcasting System will begin airing a 10-part, 18-hour documentary on Sept. 17 about the Vietnam War produced by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.Burns and Novick say their Vietnam epic will be “a film everyone can embrace” and that in it “there are many truths.”Without even seeing the opening credits, this tells us that it will be far from a clear indictment of the U.S. criminals who provoked and pursued the wars against Vietnam and the rest of Indochina.U.S. presidents like John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, generals like William Westmoreland and cabinet members like Robert McNamara and Henry Kissinger — among others — committed war crimes against the Vietnamese and other Indochinese peoples. They also lied continuously to the people in the U.S. to justify sending millions of U.S. youths to kill and die.The most egregious lie the Pentagon Papers disclosed in 1971 was the phony Tonkin Gulf “attack” in August 1964, used to get congressional approval under Johnson for a mammoth war escalation.The Veterans For Peace organization, whose membership includes many vets of that period, reacted to the announcement of the series by publishing “Full Disclosure: Truth About America’s War in Vietnam.” This newspaper has 28 pages of articles to reverse what the VFP fears will be miseducation if the viewing public sees a film that war criminals can also embrace.There are really only two truths that need to be presented in a documentary on the U.S. war against Vietnam:One is the truth of the Vietnamese, who liberated the northern half of their country first from French imperialism in 1954 after an eight-year war and signed an agreement for an election in 1956 that would have liberated the southern half. Then, after the U.S. and French regimes broke that agreement, the Vietnamese fought from the early 1960s to 1975 to free their country. This is a story of unimaginable heroism from the Vietnamese soldiers and the entire population.The other truth is that of the worldwide movement that opposed U.S. intervention, including that in the U.S., which was greatly inspired by the courage and determination of the Vietnamese.This was a movement that penetrated so deep into the U.S. Armed Forces that, as military historian Marine Lt. Col. Robert Debs Heinl wrote in the Armed Forces Journal of June 7, 1971: “By every conceivable indicator, our army that now remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, … and dispirited where not near mutinous.” In other words, a large section of the troops understood they were misused, fighting for the wrong side, and many decided to resist.The upcoming documentary will provoke discussion of the war on Vietnam. This discussion should be led by those in the U.S. who opposed the war and those in Vietnam who fought for their country’s freedom.For a history of Worker’s World Party’s organizing in the military during the U.S. war against Vietnam, see “Turn the Guns Around: Mutinies, Soldier Revolts and Revolutions” (World View Forum, 2017) by WW managing editor John Catalinotto.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She didn’t know how good until she watched the ball hit the green near the flag, take a short hop and disappear in the hole.Susie thrust her hands high in the air and she grinned like a big-eyed gal at the fair. Skip Susie has been playing golf competitively for about four years. She likes competition. Her brothers, Lee and Audie, were her first competitors.“It seems like I was always on the golf course,” Susie said. “Audie was usually out there with me. He encouraged me, kind of pushed me but I just love to play golf.”Other than her brothers, Lindsey Lee, who plays for the University of Mobile, and her teammates, her male teammates, at PLAS have been Susie’s golfing buddies.At PLAS, the male golfers had to get used to playing with a girl and behind a girl. “They got used to playing with me and they were all right with it,” Susie said, with a smile.”Practice makes habit and Susie Stell practices with that in mind.“I want to be a better player so I practice to get better,” she said. “My short game is the best part of my game and I come out to chip and putt just about every day. I’m working to be ready when I get to Faulkner.”The team will be made up of eight players and five of them will travel.Susie hopes to travel.“There will be two freshmen on the team,” she said. “I’d like to travel this year but I’m going to take every opportunity to gain experience and grow as a golfer.”Susie said golf is a team sport and it’s also an individual sport.“Out on the course, it’s all up to you,” she said. “It’s a real mental game. If you hit a bad shot, you have to keep calm. You have to let that shot go and focus on the next shot. That’s hard to do sometimes because bad shots just want to stay in the back of your mind.”For Susie, a water hazard is a magnet.“It draws me,” she said with a smile. “Sand traps don’t really bother me really. If there’s water on a hole and sand, I’ll go toward the sand.”Susie is excited about the opportunity to play college golf.  She’s excited about the opportunities to play different courses and the challenges of playing with and against outstanding women golfers.But, she doesn’t have her sights set on a professional career in golf. Susie Stell’s planning a career as either a physical therapist or as a pharmacist. She’ll play golf on weekends and, as always, she’ll play to win.

Oxford City Council makes plans to pedestrianise the city centre

first_imgMany Oxford streets have already been temporarily pedestrianised, particularly to provide more space for outdoor seating. From 12 April onwards, hospitality businesses will be allowed to reopen their outdoor seating. To support them, the City Council has recently launched a funding scheme offering £3,250 per business to recoup costs incurred in infrastructure changes.  Jane Campbell-Howard, owner of Society Café in St Michael’s Street, said that Oxford City Council had been “incredibly supportive” and that they were looking forward to serving coffee and “gently and carefully creating a buzz in St Michael’s Street”. Oxford City Council is planning multiple initiatives to pedestrianise streets in Oxford, including launching a Zero Emission Zone Pilot (ZEZ Pilot) in Oxford City Centre starting August 2021. Between 7am and 7pm, access to the ZEZ will be subject to a road charge based on the vehicle’s emissions. The maximum charge will be £10 per day while emission-free vehicles will face no charge.  “A 100 per cent discount” will be offered to students with “acute financial hardship” when moving in and out at the start and end of university terms, with requests for exemptions made via colleges. Further reductions are available for residents and businesses in the zone, blue badge workers and care and health workers. The ZEZ Pilot is part of a wider envisaged Zero Emission Zone, which will be launched in Spring 2022 based on the level of the pilot’s success and public consultation. It is planned to span from the entrance to University Parks to just past the main entrance to Christ Church Meadows, and from just before Oxford train station to Magdalen Bridge. The ZEZ Pilot will include Cornmarket Street and Queen street (from Waterstones to Westgate), as well as Ship Street, St. Michael’s Street (Location of the Handlebar Cafe and Kitchen), Ship Street and New Inn Hall Street (just after Gloucester Green to Westgate). Oxford City Council has also applied to pedestrianise Broad Street between Magdalen Street East and Turl Street from late June 2021 through to autumn. Councillor Tom Hayes, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Green Transport and Zero Carbon Oxford says that they want to give Broad Street “back to people” and “make more streets safer to walk and cycle”.  Image credit: Oxfordshire County Council Image credit: Palickap, distributed under a CC-SA 4.0 Licenselast_img read more
