Communist Vietnam recently attempted to rewrite history with a “war documentary” series that was riddled with distorted facts. The massacre at Hue by the Viet Cong (guerrilla fighters) during the Tet Offensive was a known event supported by evidence and multiple witnesses. Hue was a city in South Vietnam which allied with United States. In the propaganda documentary, the filmmaker tried to rewrite history by blaming the massacre of thousands of civilians on American and South Vietnamese military. They even claimed they did the dead a favor by burying their bodies in mass graves.
Who are they trying to fool? They expected us to believe that the U.S. military killed thousands of American sympathizers. What benefits to the U.S. would come from that? This lie is disproved by both facts and logic. Let’s not forget the VC also murdered thousands of people during the so called “land reforms”.
I know the Vietnam War was not popular with many people, but I can’t stand American soldiers being blamed for everything. Atrocities happen in wars, but the Massacre at Hue was the VC’s doing and they must own up to it.
