Abstract:

April 30 marks the fifth anniversary of the fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese. Specifically, it will establish that there was a series of bloodbaths, not primarily in the sense of personal governmental vendettas (which there were), but in the more literal sense of blood made to flow so copiously from wars and governmental social policy that it has nearly drowned the societies of Indochina.
