If Siddaddy is anything like Siddude, very doubtful that Siddaddy could have done better. When you lose a war with superior financial and technological support, you are called a WINNER? Again with all the American money and technology thrown at Siddaddy, Siddaddy lost. If Siddaddy loses in a life and death situation like war, you think Siddaddy would have the talent to win in the game of making money? Is Siddude's path any different from Siddaddy?

Let's see here. The Siddude's path always starts with a V and ends with a C. Oh how different. The path is always littered with Sheetdoo..doo. Oh very predictable. Based on the facts so far, Doehomey will have to say that Siddude is Siddaddy and is winner in life as he is in logic.

So are you referring to Cu Huy Ha Vu, son of a Commie? Or are you referring to Doehomey, a US citizen?

Vietnam announces plans to reduce prostitution


Quote:
They have unveiled plans to invest $US30 million to provide alternative job training for sex workers.

Prostitution is illegal in Vietnam,

Previous campaigns to reduce the practice have not worked.
It looks like someone has gotten more intelligent since the key word is 'reduce' and not 'eliminate'. The problem is the choice between making $3 a day and making $15 or more in 1 hour or less.

The problem is the demand side and not the supply side. A law should be passed to castrate everyone caught with a prostitute. The 'problem' of prostitution would then be very negligible. Those who make the law would never let such laws pass because they might lose their manhood.

How can you make illegal the 'oldest profession in the world'? It has been around since the beginning of man and will be around until the man. The real solution after so many campaigns to reduce fails is to legalize prostitution. Like the Netherlands.

that's why in VN we only tell tall tales which never exist in real life and we bind to that rule to submerge from poverty. Because reality is harsh and no matter how we tried we're still poor so we have to make up false expectations and imaginary disciplines to fool the world in thinking how wonderful Vn is today under the commie regime

]So are you referring to Cu Huy Ha Vu, son of a Commie? [BOr are you referring to Doehomey, a US citizen?[/B]
US citizen don't use 19th century English to talk on forums nowadays
US citizens don't address themselves in third person when they speak
US citizens don't come to a skyscrapercity website to protect and defend communism
US citizens don't bash religions, even if they disagree with a religion they avoid confrontation by staying away from the subject
US citizens they know tricks of the trade and north American slangs,

doehomy failed all of the above.........so the question we want to ask is.......when will doehomey return to Vietnam after completing oversea training from Oz or US?

Thank you coolink. It is interesting how someone living in Canada should tell a US citizen what he or she should and should not do. Similar to someone who have has never opened a civics book would always talk about freedom and democracy. Or someone whose vocabulary has not advanced beyond the first grade level should ridicule other's 'Shakespeare' words. Who knows... they will get the bright idea one of these days that everyone should follow and praise them and not question their intelligence.

Btw Oz is where the wizard grants us all certificates even if we only have straws for a brain. Then we can head over to Canada and post on SSC so that everyone can become edumacated.

well if we are "US citizen" like we claimed....we should know the only difference between the 2 countries are their currencies and the flags, unless he or she is like an oversea student from VN, who has no idea what he or she is talking about assuming VN and Thailand are neighbour countries yet, one of us excel on top of the line of tourism and economic, while the other one still begging for foreign eid

If a person opens her or his "civic book" he or she wouldn't spend that much time on SSC to defend communism and bash democracy, you know wat I mean? u know?

some of us type our responses based on instinct rather than spending time to go through dictionary to search for big complicated words and bind them together to make a 19 century speech, u know wat I mean? U know?

nah, Oz is where 20.000 students from VN study annually, some of those 20.000 opened their eyes and saw the world, freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of religion........while one of them like doehomey, here studies oversea just so he or she can come here to address him or herself in third person condemning Christianity on behalf of the commie staffs in Vn u know? u know?

everyone here is educated that's why we speak in everyday English instead of the English learnt in HoivietMy....you know? and we are educated that's why we know monuments and museums dedicated to commies victims are mushrooming in Europe, u know? u know?

So are you referring to Cu Huy Ha Vu, son of a Commie? Or are you referring to Doehomey, a US citizen?
Another VC farting out loud! So lame! Hmmm... let's see VC had all of North Vietnam unmolested plus they had Laos and Cambodia (supposedly neutral). Did the US or South Vietnam enter North Vietnam with a blitzkrieg warfare to end another state? Hmmm... it seems the allies put up artificial political barrier and went out of its way not to antagonize VC big brother China. Remember the VC were hiding under the Chinese skirt!! Funny superior technology and financial assets were of no use if the POLITICIANS had no balls to use the full weight of a country's arsenal to defeat a pathetic foe. This VC warfare: hit and run then run into Laos and Cambodia (neutral?) where allies could not chase. VC pile up supplies near Chinese borders where the US bombers were not allowed to bomb. VC could plant bombs in South Vietnamese buildings with civilians while the US could not hit VC command and control or Communist Party headquarters. Sin of South Vietnam was that it she operated in a democratic system with democratic allies who could change course and change policy. North Vietnam only won is because it was back by two murderous and barbaric sh*t to the world totalitarian powers, USSR and China. The old commies in these countries do not have domestic opposition or do they care about international opinions, little 3rd world dude. If you had an ounce of sophistication and education you would know the complexity of the Vietnam war. America lost because of self inflicted causes not because of VC superior strategy, intellect or military prowess. It not hard to defeat a foe when S. Vietnam had no more bullets, ammo, and fuel to defend a country. South Vietnam was on its own after 73 while bo doi monkeys had the full backing to two dumbsh*t, amoral, barbaric communist countries. South Vietnam was limited to a tie or a loss while North Vietnam could create havoc of war endlessly as long as USSR and China bankrolled the VC pathetic 3rd world, primate asses. Oh well, that is the past. South Vietnam sacrifice itself so that the free world can triumphed over the Communist douchebags of the world. The whole world is free off communists and their sh*thole of an idea. No communists will ever poke their heads out again because the whole world just ignore the idiots and go about the business of the real world.

Anyway, please tell me the virtues of communism because I'm dying to hear your justification for Communism which was the idea of the Viet Cong. We want laugh some more!! After 36 years the joke is still humorous because the question remains who ass got "re-educated". But you're an unrepentant and childish Viet Cong so it does not matter but it is humorous to hear a Viet Cong fart out loud and stink of the whole world. Communism = dumbsh*t idea. Even can't Viet Can't dance around or spin that nugget. End of story. The Viet Cong called themselves communists and have a party called the Communist Party. So the dumbsh*t label fits them!! ))

Who the hell got "re-educated"............ The whole free world laughs at pathetic commie excuses! Whatever!!! It is pathetic sons of bo doi who had to learn the capitalist language and the techniques and methods of the capitalist world. Not the other way around. Even big commie China rejected their Maoist past. It's funny to watch commies eat their sh*t! Who the hell wants to ingest communism and their retarded ideas??? Try North Korea! LOL You still have to live in a non-communist world!!! Remember when you stick your 3rd word haed into the civilized world, someone will call you out and talk back to you. The civilized world is not the Planet of the Apes world of VC land. Remember that son of bo doi. Ho Chi Minh's road taken is the road to 3rd world poverty and communist dead end. Oh man, it has been a very humorous 36 years!!! Every April 30th I laugh at Viet Cong!!! There are only 5 remaining Marxist Leninist states left in the world. Why so few??? ))

nice topic. which may not make SSC members F# each other. politics do. so I have quitted political debate on SSC

well the oldest profession, just like politics, actually is everywhere on earth, all times
even in Moscow during Soviet time there was a joke that if a man go out to arbat street in the niight and ask a girl there "what time is it" the answer surely would be "one hour 20 rubles"
Osama may have porn muvi in the Abbottabad house just like Bill did have oral sex in the other house; nothing new we all are human beings

Netherland red light district is actually overcomercialized; a hand job may not be included in an intercourse quotation and can cost you extra money, so be careful,

In asia, Japan and thailand probally are monarchies with top-chart asian values and traditions, also offer the topchart sex industry

so IMO, sex is no bad either paid or not

human beings were born by sex so they can also be ruined by sex, ofcourse. not only STDs. I refer to the case of IMF chief. poor the would-be president of France

life goes on, sex comes along, someone get it FOC, someone has to pay for it so postitution lives on

That is a bit unfortunate. Your voice is the voice of calm and reason, even if you are the son of a commie. Think of it as comedy. Tragedies are only for those who take all things too seriously even though they do not know what they are talking about.

who doesn't know what they're talking about? the commie supporters or their opponents?

If politics is the second largest profession on earth, then read this and see how the sons of Uncle Ho whore themselves in the name of polictics......

Vietnam: Free Political and Religious Detainees
(New York) - Dozens of peaceful advocates for democratic reforms, rule of law, religious freedom, and human rights face arbitrary detention and harsh prison sentences, with no respite in sight, Human Rights Watch said today, on the fifth anniversary of the founding of the democracy movement known as Block 8406.

"With a steady stream of people being locked up for nothing more than asking for their rights, the situation is critical," said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director at Human Rights Watch. "Vietnam's donors and development partners need to forcefully express their public support for Vietnam's courageous activists and call for the immediate release of all who have been arbitrarily detained."
Named for its inception date of April 8, 2006, Block 8406 swelled into a movement of thousands through online petitions calling for respect for basic human rights, establishment of a multiparty political system, and guarantees of freedom of religion and political association. Vietnamese authorities respond with harassment and arrests to nonviolent appeals by Block 8406 and other groups advocating for democracy and human rights.
Since June 2010, Vietnamese authorities have arrested and detained at least 24 dissidents, house church activists, and bloggers, many of whom have been held incommunicado for many months without access to legal counsel or to their families.
During the last month alone, courts sentenced a prominent legal activist, Cu Huy Ha Vu, to seven years in prison on April 4; upheld harsh sentences for three young labor activists on March 18; and sentenced Chau Heng, a land rights activist and member of the Khmer Krom ethnic minority in An Giang province, to two years in prison on March 31. On April 8, Vu Duc Trung and Le Van Thanh, who have been held by Hanoi police since June 2010, will be tried for broadcasting information from an illicit house-based radio station about the Falun Gong religion.
In an attempt to shut down popular support for Dr. Cu Huy Ha Vu, on April 4 police in Hanoi arrested Pham Hong Son, a physician, and Le Quoc Quan, a lawyer, as they approached the People's Court of Hanoi on Hai Ba Trung street, where the trial was taking place. Initially, authorities indicated the trial would be open, but then the area surrounding the court was cordoned off and guarded by police and civil defense forces.
Le Quoc Quan is a former fellow of the US-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) who was previously arrested on March 8, 2007, four days after his return from the United States. The authorities detained him for 100 days on charges of carrying out activities to overthrow the government, under article 79 of the penal code. He was released on June 16, 2007.
A pro-democracy activist, Pham Hong Son was arrested on March 27, 2002, on espionage charges, under article 80 of the penal code, for using the internet to communicate with fellow dissidents and to disseminate pro-democracy articles and statements. The authorities sentenced him to 13 years in prison in June 2003, which was later reduced to five years upon appeal, followed by three years on probation. The government gave him amnesty and released him on August 30, 2006.
"The government is playing a game of guilt by proximity by arresting Pham Hong Son and Le Quoc Quan for standing near the court," Robertson said. "It only adds certainty that this show trial is a new high-water mark in a continuing crack-down on human rights advocates in Vietnam."
Vietnamese prison authorities routinely mistreat and torture political detainees during interrogation to pressure them to sign pre-written confessions and to disclose information about other activists. During pretrial detention, which can last up to 20 months, political detainees are often shackled in solitary confinement in dark cells and allowed out only for interrogation and abuse.
Since January, police have held a number of activists connected to Block 8406, pending investigation, such as a land rights petitioner, Ho Thi Bich Khuong, and a Protestant pastor, Nguyen Trung Ton. Other supporters of Bloc 8406 have been sentenced to long prison terms, including Pham Ba Hai, Nguyen Hoang Quoc Hung, Nguyen Xuan Nghia, Tran Anh Kim, Tran Khai Thanh Thuy, Tran Quoc Hien, Truong Minh Duc, Truong Quoc Huy, and Vi Duc Hoi. In addition, several Bloc 8406 members released from prison remain under house arrest, including Father Nguyen Van Ly, Le Thi Cong Nhan, and Nguyen Van Dai.
Authorities are also holding other peaceful activists not directly associated with Bloc 8406, such as Pham Minh Hoang, who blogged as Phan Kien Quoc, and a Mennonite pastor, Duong Kim Khai. Both have been in detention for more than six months on allegations of subversion.
Nguyen Van Hai, who blogged under the name Dieu Cay, has been held incommunicado since October 20, 2010, after serving 30 months in prison on a trumped-up tax evasion charge.
Another blogger, Phan Thanh Hai, a.k.a. Anhbasg, has been detained for almost six months. Police arrested him on October 18, two days before Nguyen Van Hai's scheduled release date. Both are founders of the Club for Free Journalists, established in September 2007 to promote freedom of expression and human rights. Another founding member of the club, Ta Phong Tan, also a blogger, has been harassed and interrogated by the police.
"Bloggers and activists peacefully campaigning for freedom of expression and human rights should not be arrested and locked up," Robertson said. "Holding them for months without trial or access to legal counsel seriously violates their basic civil rights. They should be immediately and unconditionally released."

Hanoi Sisters of Saint Paul home to be demolished
05/17/2011 13:23
by Paul N. Hung
Home to charitable activities, for young women in difficult situations, for orphaned and disabled children, a pre-school section and more. The sisters have offered "charity bowls of soup" to many poor patients in hospitals and a free dispensary for the poor.


Hanoi (AsiaNews) – The building that has been home to the Congregation of Saint Paul in Hanoi is at risk(pictured). It houses, among other things, a shelter for young women, a home for orphans and disabled children, a dispensary for the poor. Now authorities say they want to build a hospital on the premises. A seemingly irrational choice an done on which the capital’s Archbishop and Justice and peace commission has yet to pronounce themselves, to defend the religious sisters right to continue their mission and contribute to the development of the country.

Founded in 1883, the Vietnamese Congregation of Sisters of Saint Paul has its headquarters in Hanoi, No. 37 Hai Bā Trưng Street, Trāng Tiền Ward, Hoān Kiếm District.

Since then, and even during the war, the sisters have always carried out pastoral activities, health and social services for the population of Hanoi and contributed to nation building. Even the place where their house is situated is linked to the tradition of protecting and defending the homeland. The name of the street, Hai Bā Trưng, is that of two women who defied the invasion of the feudal Chinese regime in the district, Hoan Kiem, indicating the return to God's magic sword with which the Emperor Le Loi (Traditional Vietnamese hero) defeated aggressors and prevented the expansion of the Ming Dynasty.

At the time of its inception, the congregation had 200 nuns who devoted themselves to pastoral and social activities for the poor, scattered throughout the north. In 1954, most of the nuns fled to Da Nang and Saigon. 11 remained as witnesses, of whom 10 have died, while one, 100 years old, is still living. "At that time - remembers Sister T. - The situation in the north was very not easy. The people lived in great difficulties, war and bombings, life and death everywhere. The property of the congregation was largely confiscated by the communist government. It was only a very small portion. "

Fortunately, after 1986, the period of reforms, the sisters had the hope of rebuilding their congregation. To do this, on March 1, 2010, 92 nuns were sent to Hanoi. The sisters created charitable structures, such as a shelter for young women in difficult situations, a home for orphaned and disabled children, a pre-school section and more. They offered "charity bowls of soup" to many poor patients in the Vietnam Cuba Hospital and Germany Vietnam Hospital, sectors 1 and 2 of the hospital for cancer and maintain a free dispensary for the poor. And they also carry out missionary work in the north.

Election Day in Vietnam



Only one party but multiple candidates so still an election.

But the end result is a lot like US elections..... not much changes regardless of who wins.

PREVIEW: Vietnamese voters unmoved by election fanfare
May 21, 2011, 2:33 GMT

Hanoi (dpa) - The streets of Hanoi may be festooned with election posters, but the people are not showing the enthusiasm one might expect in the run up to Sunday's election.

Nearly 830 candidates are competing for the 500 seats of the National Assembly, constitutionally the 'highest organ of state power.'

Colourful posters bear slogans such as 'The National Assembly election is the festival of the whole people,' or the equally enthusing 'Going to vote is the right and task of each citizen.'

Loudspeakers blast out the occasional injunction to vote, interspersed with familiar military refrains. But in private, conversation rarely turns to the range of democratic options.

'To be honest, I am not really enthusiastic about voting because we don't believe it will make a difference,' said Le Bach Duong, director of the Institute for Social Development Studies in Hanoi. 'Things have been fixed. Nothing will change whoever is elected.'

On Sunday, the elections are to be held for the National Assembly and People's Council for the next four years.

The assembly nominally legislates and controls state budgets. However, it is in practice answerable to the Communist Party.

Almost all candidates are put forward by government officials, and all are vetted by the Party before their candidacy is confirmed. The assembly can in theory reject the candidates, but seldom does in practice.

Also in theory, would-be independents are allowed to put their own names forward, which 83 people attempted for this year's poll.

But only 15 of those managed to pass the required vetting by representatives of their local community.

Some pro-democracy activists have nominated themselves, knowing they would almost certainly fail to be accepted as candidates, in a deliberate gesture of protest.

These included activist lawyer Le Quoc Quan, a former fellow of the US-based National Endowment for Democracy.

Another lawyer, Cu Huy Ha Vu, who has been sentenced to seven years in jail for 'spreading propaganda against the state,' in the previous election also mounted a failed attempt to be allowed to run.

Other rejected self-nominations in the past have included human rights lawyer Le Cong Dinh, an outspoken critic of bauxite mining in Central Vietnam, who is now imprisoned for threatening 'national security,' and high school teacher Do Viet Khoa, who has campaigned against corruption in the education system.
This year's assembly election coincides with the elections of provincial People's Councils across the country. The 4,000 members of these councils are directly elected, and then appoint People's Committees, which are the effective administrative power in local affairs.

The government has budgeted 35 million dollars for the election, to cover the estimated 91,000 polling stations and colourful propaganda campaigns. But it is not clear whether this has had much impact on voters.

'I received my voter card last Sunday, but I don't know any names of candidates in my area,' said Nguyen Thu Nga, an employee of a printing company in Hanoi. 'The National Assembly election is very formalistic.'
'I haven't decided whether I should go or not to vote on Sunday yet,' she said.

'However, I'm happy because my company has received many orders to print leaflets and posters,' she said.

A foreign observer agreed. 'When I first saw the election posters, I thought the election felt very democratic,' said an Asian diplomat who has lived in Vietnam for three years.

'But after talking to local people, I reckoned my first impressions were wrong,' he said. 'Vietnamese people are more interested in inflation than choosing their representatives.'

Vietnam party boat sinks, 16 dead: police

Sad incident in Vietnam. I'm guessing they used one of those pontoon boats and tried to cram too many people onto it.

My thoughts go out to those affected.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/43118769/ns/world_news/

BINH NHAM, Vietnam — A tour boat cruising a river to celebrate a 3-year-old's birthday capsized during a violent storm in southern Vietnam, killing the boy, four other children and 10 adults, officials said Saturday.

Divers recovered the bodies from the Saigon River on Saturday afternoon, but one passenger remained missing, said Trieu Van Giau, head of Binh Duong provincial waterway police.

Several people managed to swim to safety after the double-decker, restaurant-style boat capsized Friday evening about 100 yards (meters) from the terminal, said Le Van Hieu, chief of Binh Nham village in Binh Duong province, 19 miles (30 kilometers) northwest of Ho Chi Minh City.
"It's horrible to see the birthday party for that 3-year-old boy turn into a tragedy," he said.

The sinking is being investigated, but the heavy rains and violent winds occurring at the time were blamed.

According to state-run media, a Vietnamese businessman was throwing the birthday celebration. The reports said the father managed to survive, but that nine family members — including his wife, son and 6-year-old daughter — did not make it to shore.

One survivor was quoted as saying he was having a beer with friends when the boat started to sink. He said it flooded with water so fast that he wasn't able to reach his wife and son on the other side of the deck. Others reported that all of the windows had been closed to keep out the rain, which may have hindered passengers' escape.

Hundreds of soldiers and police were mobilized for a search and rescue operation. They were expected to hoist the sunken boat from the water using a crane, Hieu said, adding that strong currents initially prevented divers from reaching the vessel.

The boat, which can carry up to 75 people, is a popular choice for parties. It is owned by the Din Ky Green Tourist Company in Binh Duong province.
The bodies of two Chinese victims, a man and a woman, have been transferred to Cho Ray hospital in Ho Chi Minh City where they will be handed over to the Chinese Embassy.

In February, Vietnam experienced its worst foreign tour boat accident when 11 vacationers from nine countries, along with their Vietnamese tour guide, drowned when the overnight boat they were sleeping on sank in northern Ha Long Bay, one of the country's must-see sites.

Earlier this month, another tour junk went down in the bay while serving 28 French tourists. No one was injured.

This is where you're wrong, don't ever compares Vietnam election to the US. We have multiple parties and candidates who go out and campaign for a position. We call this democratic election. The Vietnamese candidates are Communist Party members and already decided behind closed doors by the so call Party Congress. And yet this government have the nerve to go around telling everyone to participate in the "right and obligation of all citizens" to vote. This is a country where publicly calling for a multiparty system can result in long jail sentences. This is a propaganda election.

Vietnam's Election in Pictures



Again, its only 1 party and some independents but there are multiple candidates vying for a limited number of spots so technically it is definitely an election.

Interesting how things are done over there.

AGAIN, all candidates are already decided/picked behind closed doors by Party controlled institutions, so technically it is definitely NOT an election. The Vietnamese government feels compelled to call their system democratic and to hold elections to try to tell the rest of the world that their version of democracy is just different from the West.
Say what you will but this is certainly NOT going to be an election that you would see in a Western parliamentary system.

Wow, what a JOKE ! Hmmmm... let's see this is 2010 and Vietnam under Viet Cong for over 36 years in the south and 60 years in the north is still one of the POOREST, least developed, least technological advanced countries in the world. No amount of denial or trashing talking by baby VC will ever take that away.

The onus is clearly on the little Viet Cong and their equally retarded and clueless pappa VC!!! Vietnam under Viet Cong is not even close to Thailand or Singapore never mind Taiwan, S. Korea, or Japan!!! ))

Looking up the behinds of other countries has always been the VC view of the world.

Amazing mind of Viet Cong at work. They fought for a child's fairy tale that the world laughed their ass off but somehow Pappa VC still dress up in Halloween Viet Cong costume and fly the sickle and hammer like the good ole days in Havana, Pyongyang and Hanoi!!! LOL OMG, it has been so fun laughing at Viet Cong for over 36 years. When it comes to poverty and destitution Viet Cong know that all to well. Viet Cong can teach Cubans and North Koreans about the poor house because they are so experience at being poor jokers of the world.

Communism = retardedness!!
