I have to hand it to Ho Chi Minh, he knew how to rally his people and fight as one highly dedicated efficient fighting force using human wave tactics against our firepower, getting so close we were unable to use it in some cases attacking our troops on 3 sides seemed to be devastatingly effective. Taking massive casualties never affected there resolve for a moment. Hitler made those same attention grabbing speeches with great enthusiasm but ho chi's speeches are not as well documented. The NVA (North Vietnamese Regular Army) alone took so many casualties from our bombing runs entire regiments would disintegrate at a time, so there is no accurate way of knowing how many millions were killed.

All people are created equal; they are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable Rights; among these are Life, Liberty, and the
pursuit of Happiness.
This immortal statement was made in the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America
in 1776. In a broader sense, this means: All the peoples on the earth
are equal from birth, all the peoples have a right to live, to be happy
and free.

The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen of the French Revolution made in 1791 also states: All men are born free and with equal rights, and must always remain free and have equal rights.
Those are undeniable truths.
Nevertheless, for more than eighty years, the French imperialists, in
the name of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity, have violated our
Fatherland and oppressed our fellow citizens. They have acted contrary
to the ideals of humanity and justice.
In the field of politics, they have deprived our people of every democratic liberty.
They have enforced inhuman laws; they have set up three distinct
political regimes in the North, Center, and South of Vietnam in order to
destroy our national unity and prevent our people from being united.
They have built more prisons than schools. They have mercilessly
slaughtered our patriots; they have drowned our uprisings in bloodbaths.

They have fettered public opinion; they have practiced obscurantism against our people.
To weaken our race they have forced us to use opium and alcohol.
In the field of economics, they have fleeced us to the backbone, impoverished our people and devastated our land.
They have robbed us of our rice fields, our mines, our forests, and our raw materials. They have monopolized the issuing of bank notes and the export trade.
They have invented numerous unjustifiable taxes and reduced our people, especially our peasantry, to a state of extreme poverty.
They have hampered the prospering of our national bourgeoisie; they have mercilessly exploited our workers.
In the autumn of 1940, when the Japanese fascists violated Indochina's territory to establish new bases in their fight against the Allies,
the French imperialists went down on their bended knees and handed over
our country to them. Thus, from that date, our people were subjected to
the double yoke of the French and the Japanese. Their sufferings and
miseries increased. The result was that, from the end of last year to
the beginning of this year, from Quảng Trị Province to northern Vietnam, more than two million of our fellow citizens died from starvation.
On March 9 [1945], the French troops were disarmed by the Japanese. The
French colonialists either fled or surrendered, showing that not only
were they incapable of "protecting" us, but that, in the span of five
years, they had twice sold our country to the Japanese.
On several occasions before March 9, the Việt Minh League
urged the French to ally themselves with it against the Japanese.
Instead of agreeing to this proposal, the French colonialists so
intensified their terrorist activities against the Việt Minh members
that before fleeing they massacred a great number of our political
prisoners detained at Yên Bái and Cao Bằng.
Notwithstanding all this, our fellow citizens have always manifested
toward the French a tolerant and humane attitude. Even after the
Japanese Putsch of March 1945, the Việt Minh League helped many
Frenchmen to cross the frontier, rescued some of them from Japanese
jails, and protected French lives and property.
From the autumn of 1940, our country had in fact ceased to be a French
colony and had become a Japanese possession. After the Japanese had
surrendered to the Allies, our whole people rose to regain our national
sovereignty and to found the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
The truth is that we have wrested our independence from the Japanese and not from the French.
The French have fled, the Japanese have capitulated, Emperor Bảo Đại
has abdicated. Our people have broken the chains which for nearly a
century have fettered them and have won independence for the Fatherland.
Our people at the same time have overthrown the monarchic regime that
has reigned supreme for dozens of centuries. In its place has been
established the present Democratic Republic.
For these reasons, we, the members of the Provisional Government,
representing the whole Vietnamese people, declare that from now on we
break off all relations of a colonial character with France; we repeal
all the international obligation that France has so far subscribed to on
behalf of Viet-Nam, and we abolish all the special rights the French
have unlawfully acquired in our Fatherland.
The whole Vietnamese people, animated by a common purpose, are
determined to fight to the bitter end against any attempt by the French
colonialists to reconquer the country.
We are convinced that the Allied nations, which at Tehran and San Francisco
have acknowledged the principles of self-determination and equality of
nations, will not refuse to acknowledge the independence of Vietnam.
A people who have courageously opposed French domination for more than
eighty years, a people who have fought side by side with the Allies
against the fascists during these last years, such a people must be free
and independent!
For these reasons, we, the members of the Provisional Government of the
Democratic Republic of Vietnam, solemnly declare to the world that:

Vietnam has the right to be a free and independent country—and in
fact it is so already. And thus the entire Vietnamese people are
determined to mobilize all their physical and mental strength, to
sacrifice their lives and property in order to safeguard their
independence and liberty.

History? You skipped the most important part. In 1943 the US worked closely with Ho Chi Minh. We armed and trained the Viet Minh against Japan and the French, and supported Ho's claim to an independent Vietnam. That was under Roosevelt. When FDR died in 1945, the US (under Truman) immediately moved to supporting the French against Ho.
At the time President Eisenhower said: "I have never talked or corresponded with a person knowledgeable in Indochinese affairs who did not agree that had elections been held at the time of the fighting, possibly 80 per cent of the population would have voted for the communist Ho Chi Minh". There was no unified "anti communist South" as portrayed in the vid. The South mostly supported Ho Chi Minh.
In order to stop the election of Ho the US created a military theme park called "South Vietnam". That 80% of the Vietnamese went on to defeat the US over the next 30 years.

Vietnam is not a communist country lol the nation is governed by a communist party but the core of it is socialism backed by Ho Chi Minh ideology. Ho Chi Minh ideology was created by Uncle Ho by combining all the things he gathered throughout his journey around the world which we still study in class to this day. Get you facts straight before you decide to post some political "histories" lol

Ho Chi Minh don’t want to be a Communism. Actually, he’s a Nationalism, he want Vietnam be a Capitalism for the help by USA ( in 1919 and 1945, he just joins the Communism in 1920s ), but USA refuses and continues to support France, they’re selected Ngo Dinh Diem, because he is a wide-learning, highly talented, handsome man, he can help USA later. No other way, Ho had to choose USSR and China, but he was also despised by them, they didn’t regard him as a comrade. But that's the only way to fight France. He was criticized for not being completely Communism. He once said: “Whether Democracy or Communist, what we need is Freedom”

Although Ho Chi Minh did mess up with the Land Reform, at least he had the guts to publicly say sorry for his actions as well as trying to fix it the best he could, something I have not seen in other leaders around the world, at least not yet. I mean, come now, leaders. What harm could one simple “I am sorry for what I have done and I will do my best to fix it” do?
