Very true and Ho sold out the revolution by agreeing to the French re-entry
into IndoChina and the French communist Party ministers were the ones who
ordered the troops back in. Stalin had decreed that Vietnam would remain
part of the French Empire and that peaceful co-existence was the norm for the
future between the capitalist states and the Soviet Union. This was
reflected in the CPUSA pushing in their unions for an extension of the wartime NO
STRIKE pledge. This really undercut their base in the unions in the US.
Ho murdered hundreds of Trotskyists in Saigon when they called for a joint
mass meeting. They did this with and in support of the British, so one
cannot let the Brits off the hook too much either. Randy

Who the fuck appointed you to decide who's a revolutionary, you Stalinist
When Prunier, the guy in the pic between Ho and Giap, died in April I
something to the list acknowledging the difficulty of this issue, and how
hard it was to begrudge Giap weapons from anywhere, knowing what good use
he put them to militarily.
Militarily, not politically. Throughout the period Clayborne writes about,
the Trotskyists were building a working class base on a working class
program that could have meant victory for the revolution. Instead that
reformist Ho murdered them, made deals with all the imperialist powers,
meaning delay of independence for years, and set in motion a bureaucratic
leadership which has given the country back to imperialism.
Of course Clayborne can't be bothered to mention any of that.
