Take in mind,please,that, before US,France had generously accomplied this task.
Before the U.S we WERE COLONIZED by French. There was no South or North Vietnamese governments. We were just a part of Indo-China or whatever the name the French called us. This is why my grandpa joined the Viet Minh to fight with the French, but not the Viet Cong. How could you compare apples and oranges?

And? Does it mean Vietnamese can blame them for their poverty? The guy in this original poster's topic is a jerk due to his stereotype. Trust me, this kinda people is everywhere in EVERY culture. I dare to use the absolute word here. The bottom line is, why do people have stereotypes? Stereotypes happen because there's a small percentage of people of certain groups do certain things, which give people a sense of how the whole culture is.
I am a Vietnamese girl; I would be offended if someone comes to my face and tells me I'm a gold digger, because there are some Vietnamese girls who are like that. However, I'm not gonna be irritated by that person ONLY. I will take a look why that person said it. Racism, stereotype, prejudice, or we do indeed have our own problems? You can't just hate someone for saying something without taking a look why.

A nation very rich with 40 millions of poors,without basic healthcare.The answer is,in my opinion,that america monetizes all,even sentiments.But values like dignity,solidarity,real friendship are economical worthless and no money can buy them, is for this that almost all countries in the world don't respect America.
Let me just tell one one thing and you google it on the net to check, okay. Poor Americans are nowhere near poor Vietnamese. No one really understands what poverty means if they haven't lived in a Third World country. I'm sure you don't know how poor could a poor person be in a Third World country.
