      Celebrating 40 Years of Vietnam's Independence

> Forty Years ago today, on 29 April 1975, a thirty-years war concluded
> as the Vietnamese had finally achieved victory in the struggle
> initiated when Ho Chi Minh read their Declaration of Independence in
> Hanoi on 2 September 1945. They didn't know it would take so long. In
> those thirty years they had to defeat the Japanese, the French and
> finally the Americans, and the puppet regimes set up by those
> imperialists. On 18 February 1948, Vo Nguyen Giap, military commander
> of the Vietnamese revolutionary forces declared in a letter to the
> troops /"We will struggle ten years or longer if necessary...Until our
> nation regains its independence and unification...until Ha Noi becomes
> the capital of and independent and unified nation."/ It took thirty
> years not ten, but on 29 April 1975 that dream was realized.
