Louis, I cannot believe I beat you to this! :)

Anyway, this is obviously relevant to Syria discussions.

On the one hand, how can one not feel glad that the Viet Minh received
whatever training they did from Prunier and his colleagues?

On the other, this training occurred shortly before Ho murdered  the
Trotskyists' whose strategy could have avoided years of sell-outs and
setbacks.

Life is very complicated...
