I only leafed through the French edition 20 years ago, but I personally spoke with the author, and he said he bribed his way out of the country with gold. Uncle Ed 15:30, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Deleting the article[edit]

This is at least the third time I've started this article. Amazingly, there is no record of it ever having existed. I would appreciate it, if a developer would contact me before erasing all traces of the article from the database. Uncle Ed 15:32, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Hi I dont see any record of it either, peahaps you need to find context where you can wikify this in. Dominick (ŤαĿĶ) 15:35, 22 October 2005 (UTC)

Well, it certainly relates to:

  1. The Vietnam War
  2. Communism
  3. History of Vietnam
  4. The anti-war movement
  5. Anti-communism

It touches on the much larger issue of:

  • Is communism a good thing (as its Western supporters continue to claim, with hardl any significant opposition); or,
  • Is Communism the worst thing that ever happened to humanity, the cause of 200 million cases of mass murder and genocide?
Well, easy there, tiger, perhaps you should relax a little and put a pair of NPOV-specs on, before clicking anymore edit-buttons. The 'Talk'-pages are for discussing the article, not politics or ignorance. ElChrissos (talk) 22:12, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Article or advertisement?[edit]

Shouldn't an article on wikipedia be of a NPOV and include a little more than excerpts from a book and reviews? The entire 'About the Author'-section is just a quote. This isn't really a very well written article, and the reason someone made this article can't be to educate, surely. ElChrissos (talk) 22:12, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Shout out[edit]

I personally met the author in Boston, a couple of years before the book was published. --Uncle Ed (talk) 13:34, 26 October 2011 (UTC)
