The following article was submitted by Coalition officer and POW/MIA Committee member, Danny Belcher.
"My American friend who goes by the pen name of Co Van wrote
this report some month ago. The situation has not changed. The
same reports are coming out now with the cost of getting caught
being death or worse for you and your family. Why do we want trade
with communist Vietnam? Co Van is in Cambodia today. We hope he
comes out alive."

Human Rights For Vietnam is part of the ten points issues represented by the National Vietnam & Gulf War Veterans Coalition. Some of our Coalition member groups, our South Vietnamese allies, can be contacted for further information regarding the Human Rights movement on behalf of Vietnam.
Human Rights in Vietnam?
The UN should issue sanctions against the government of Vietnam for these violations of human rights. Vietnam should not be deriving benefit from its ecomonic relations with the United States while it persecutes people for practicing their religion. American prisoners of war and missing in action that still remain in Southeast Asia, though denied by our government, should not have their sacrifices discarded so readily.

The United States government is quick to dismiss the sacrifices of its military for economic and political benefits. What political benefit was obtained from our abandoning our Vietnamese allies, if America had been willing to use its military might to enforce freedom for the Republic of Vietnam, the Muslim terrorists would never have considered attacking us.
