Remembering Ho Chi Minh’s 1945 Declaration of Vietnam’s Independence
The continuing saga of the "Dirty Tricks" of the OSS, or the now CIA.

Just consider the U.S. response to Ho Chi Minh’s declaration of Vietnam’s independence on September 2, 1945.

Vietnam had been a French colony before World War II started. After France fell to Germany in 1940, Japan seized control of Vietnam, but allowed French officials and troops to administer the country. Seeing an opportunity to liberate Vietnam, Ho made his way to Vietnam from China in early 1941. It was the first time in three decades that he had set foot in his homeland. He had spent thirty years in exile, living in the United States, Britain, France, and Russia among other places.

Ho and his initial few followers operated in primitive conditions in mountainous jungles along Vietnam’s border with China. Local Vietnamese slowly joined his cause. With time, Ho’s forces, known as the Viet Minh, effectively wrested control of several of Vietnam’s northern (and remote) provinces. In March 1945, with the war in Pacific having clearly turned against Japan, Tokyo seized direct control of Vietnam and evicted French troops. The Viet Minh used the resulting confusion to seize even more territory.

The Viet Minh’s success attracted the attention of the U.S. Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner to the CIA. In March 1945, an OSS officer met with Ho in Kunming, China. The two men quickly struck a deal. The OSS would equip the Viet Minh with radios and some light arms. In return, the Viet Minh would give the OSS intelligence, harass Japanese forces, and try to rescue American pilots shot down over Viet Minh-controlled territory.

A small number of OSS operatives parachuted into northern Vietnam in mid-July 1945 to help train the Viet Minh. This so-called Deer Team found Ho deathly ill, “shaking like a leaf and obviously running a high fever.” They treated him for malaria and dysentery, and he recovered quickly. Looking forward to what would happen after Japan’s defeat, he asked his American guests, “your statesmen make eloquent speeches about . . . self-determination. We are self-determined. Why not help us? Am I any different from . . . your George Washington?”

Ho’s question quickly became relevant when Japan surrendered in mid-August. With the Japanese defeated and French forces long gone, the Viet Minh moved into Hanoi unopposed. It marked the first time Ho had set foot in his country’s biggest city. The streets were draped with Viet Minh flags. Talk of independence was in the air. Ho did not disappoint.

On September 2, 1945, in front of a crowd of hundreds of thousands, Ho declared Vietnam an independent nation. He began his speech with words familiar to any American schoolchild:

"All men are created equal. They are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among them 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.

Ho started by quoting Thomas Jefferson’s famous words for a reason: He desperately wanted U.S. support. Having it would prevent France from trying to reassert control over Vietnam and help keep Vietnam’s powerful neighbor and historical adversary China at bay. Seeking U.S. support seemed a reasonable goal. President Franklin Roosevelt’s opposition to European colonialism was well known. He had insisted that the 1941 Atlantic Charter, issued jointly by the United States and Great Britain, contain a provision stating that both countries respected “the right of all peoples to choose the form of government under which they will live.”  FDR wanted the United States firmly on the side of anti-colonialism, and liberation movements across the globe took him at his word.

In April 1954, diplomats from several nations – including the United States, the Soviet Union, China, France and Great Britain – attended a conference in the Swiss city of Geneva. This led to the creation of the Geneva Accords, which outlined a roadmap for peace and reunification in Vietnam.

Much of this will be outlined by David Schoenbrun was born in New York City. He began his career teaching French.

Schoenbrun enlisted in the Army in 1943 and became a World War 2 correspondent covering North Africa through to the liberation of France, for which he was decorated with the Croix de Guerre and the Legion of Honour.

After the war, from 1947 to 1964, Schoenbrun worked for CBS, serving primarily as the network's bureau chief in Paris, where he met and interviewed the President Charles de Gaulle a number of times. He was one of the reporters known as Murrow's Boys.

From the 1960s through the 1980s, Schoenbrun served as a news analyst for WNEW Radio in New York (now WBBR) and other Metromedia broadcast properties, and later for crosstown WPIX Television and its Independent Network News operation. In the mid-1970s, he served as a foreign affairs analyst for a short-lived public television channel in Los Angeles.

Schoenbrun is the author of On and Off the Air, a personal account of the history of CBS News through the 1970s. Schoenbrun also wrote several books concerning World-War-II-era France and other works drawn from his experiences as a newsman.

Central Treaty Organisation (CENTO): Structure, Principles and Other Details

Principles of CENTO:

The CENTO had the following principles:

1. The members of this organization were to pay attention for their own security and to make the defense of other countries strong.

2. A member country would not interfere in the affairs of other country.

3. The member countries would not keep relation with other countries of the world.

4. This organization would remain in force for five years.

5. This organization would be given new shape after the expiry of five years.

Independence and Democracy are hated by the United States.

Aims and Objectives:

This is where the NSC 68 comes into play in the political sphere of those operating the real "Terrorist Cell" located over in WARshington's District of Criminal's.

Washington who's main goal is to "Drive" others through alleged communists ties into a relationship with the now Russian Federation, the former Soviet Union is used as their "Eternal Satan" to justify the massive arms industry which would rather buy military arms then care for it's own people, as well as to also send arms to further destabilize other countries by leaving "Stay behind Forces" of the CIA as a means to cause lasting "civil wars" or "color revolutions" and thus sell billions of dollars in US Arms and which if successful after destroying a democratically elected government by their own people, install a new Western friendly government, to then bring an alleged "Stability" to the region. Or translated, install a "puppet leader" who's willing to sell out their country and their people's for the benefit of US Corporations.

I remind you that he brags as a former CIA (“a top-notch street man” who operated in what spies call the “night soil circuit”) that he lies, cheats and steals...

The CENTO had the following objectives:

(a) It was determined to keep Soviet Russia away from the Middle East.

(b) This was also a warning to Soviet Russia and other Arab Countries.

(c) The member countries aspired for help from the United States of America.

(d) It was expected that peace would be established in the Middle East, it would help the growth of trade and commerce among the member countries.

(e) This organization became successful in projecting the defense system of America and England.

Analysis of CENTO:

In true sense of the term, the CENTO was not successful in achieving its goal. At first, there was no need of such type of organization in the Middle East.

Secondly, it doubled the anger of Soviet Russia. When Pakistan joined in CENTO, Soviet Russia came closer to India.
