Uncle Ho

Uncle Ho, Uncle Ho. Uncle Ho Chih Minh.
He did win. Against 2.5 million well funded well equipped ameriKKKan troops in Vietnam.

Uncle Sam was damned and could not win. Against the dedicated peasant army of the Vietminh. Uncle Ho. Uncle Ho Chih Minh.

In 1941 at Pac Bo the Peace loving people of Vietnam formed a coalition with one goal one mission.

Independence through revolution from French colonial rule. Liberation and reunification of their nation was their goal.

Soundly defeating the French at Diem Bien Phu by surrender in 1954. Signaling to any and all invaders that they should attempt war no more.

The Vietminh thought no victory could be finer than the French surrendering and cutting tail from what was once know as French Indochina.

From 1955 until 1975 they fought tooth and nail. Guerilla tactics, improvised munitions, destructive devices, making sacrifices until accomplishing another win.

Uncle Sam was destined to lose. In a war he should have never began. The peace loving people of Vietnam gave Uncle Ho a very great win.
