On the early morning of Feb. 27, 1962, two VNAF Skyraiders took off from Bien Hoa airbase for a close air support in the 4th tactical corps, but instead of flying straight to the target area, both aircraft made a sharp right turn to Saigon vicinity and bombed the Presidential Independence Palace.

 

In an attempt to assassinate President Ngo Dinh Diem, the two young First Lt. Pham Phu Quoc and Second Lt. Nguyen Van Cu destroyed the left wing of the Presidential Palace by dropping their 500 lbs bombs. President Ngo Dinh Diem narrowly escaped the air raid. Lt. Nguyen Van Cu flew to Cambodia for political asylum and Lt. Pham Phu Quoc survived a crash-landing in Saigon River. It is necessary to remind that at that time period, President Ngo Dinh Diem's administration had been criticized for his authoritarianism against political dissidents and for the tacit policy of Buddhism persecution; not counting his tight grip on power by appointing his close relatives at many positions throughout the upper echelon of central and provincial government. In that political atmosphere, the "renegade" P.P.Quoc endured harsh interrogation while in incarceration.

 

On 1st November of 1963, the Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) launched a coup d'etat and succeeded in overthrowing Ngo Dinh Diem's administration

In the wake of the Tet offensive, on March 31, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson announced a partial halt to the bombing of North Vietnam, initiated peace talks with Hanoi, and declared he would not run for a second term. In that election year, Richard Nixon called for “peace with honor” and defeated Vice President Hubert Humphrey, who could not attack Johnson for waging what had become a hugely unpopular war. Many Americans assumed that peace would come in short order. But, though the peace talks had begun, fighting in Vietnam continued for another seven years. In those years, Nixon gradually ...

San Francisco, April 15 1985 1954: the Dien Bien Phu battle was the ominous harbinger of a further final victory of the Communists over the whole country. Winning this battle, they won the ten-year lingering war during which they had to fight in hardest conditions. It was the first step to consequent obvious victories, not only in Vietnam but also in the neighboring countries of Cambodia and Laos. With the Geneva Treaty, the vanquished French troops left for ever their former colonial territory after being there for more than one hundred years, ceding place to the Americans. Embittered by the Dien ...

http://www.lewrockwell.com/pilger/pilger25.html (30-10-2008) Saigon, April 1975. At dawn I was awake, lying under my mattress on the floor tiles, peering at my bed propped against the French windows. The bed was meant to shield me from flying glass; but if the hotel was attacked with rockets, the bed would surely fall on me. Killed by a falling bed: that somehow made sense in this, the last act of the longest-running black farce: a war that was always unnecessary and often atrocious and had ended the lives of three million people, leaving their once bountiful land petrified. The long-awaited drive, by the legatees ...
