Phở[edit]

Why is phở mentioned in this passage:

    • I have commented out that sentence as it seems to be rubbish. I also commented out The country remained an enthusiastic member of the French Empire but left many Vietnamese fought in World War I (see Vietnamese Expeditionary Force) which seems to be factual. I would imagine that originator meant to say that some classes of people in Vn may have supported the French war effort and volunteered for service. However there does not seem to be any evidence who those people might have been. I dare say most male colonists would have at least joined some sort of militia units as was the case in many colonial situations and there may have been some indigenous elements of these but I can't find anything verifiable on a mass indigenous movement in support of the defeat of Germany and her allies at the start of the war. I can't find anything on a VEF. Albatross2147 (talk) 22:25, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

Copying[edit]

From where is this text drawn? It is written in very erudite English; is it copied directly from some English-language book? It's not from The Encyclopedia of World History by William L. Langer, Contemporary Vietnam, 1858-1980 by Khắc Viện Nguyễn, or Vietnam, a Country Study by Ronald J. Cima, is it?

This needs to be addressed. Badagnani (talk) 06:29, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi, I've found the source of this article. It is indeed plagiarized from beggining to end. I'm not quite sure what wikipedia's policy on blatant copying is so I have not made any modifications. Hopefully a more experienced user will know what to do with this. Here is the site from which the article is coppied:

Once again this needs to be addressed; will someone deal with the plagiarism please? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.6.208.21 (talk) 01:42, 3 January 2009 (UTC)

Move proposal[edit]

Move to Vietnam during World War I. Normal name of this war. Badagnani (talk) 02:02, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

No, there was also another article with this name: Portugal in the Great War. JacquesNguyen (talk) 22:18, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Somebody renamed it Portugal in World War I Albatross2147 (talk) 07:19, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
As this one should be renamed. Badagnani (talk) 07:27, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
Yes. At least to me and my peers, we know it by the name World War I. Yellowtailshark (talk) 15:43, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
