Kết quả hình ảnh cho War never again!Vietnam is located in the “crossroad” of economic and culture exchanges on the road and the sea, between the north and the south, between the east and west. This special geographical position is one of the causes to make our nation face the war of aggression. Through many wars with great sacrifice, the people of Vietnam always love and cherish the values ​​of peace. In the course of history, to defend national independence and dignity, our people have repeatedly forced to take up arms. The people of Vietnam fought against more powerful enemies.
In modern times, the people of Vietnam also had to go through many wars against foreign invaders. In the unequal struggles, the way of people in war as well as peace-love spirit of Vietnamese is likely to be confirmed. On September 3rd, 1945, just one day after the birth of Vietnam, President Ho Chi Minh was approved the statement about the foreign policy of the Provisional Government of Vietnam Democratic Republic, stating goal: “Building up the world peace”; in mid-1946, during a visit to France at Normandy, he took the hand to cannon like a symbol of the spirit: “Keeping the peace! Stop the war!”. In winter 1946, facing the threat of invasion by the French, President Ho Chi Minh said to reported Paris - Saigon on December 7 that: “I and my compatriots sincerely want peace. We do not want war. I know that the French people do not want war. We want to avoid this war in every way” (Ho Chi Minh - Complete Collection, Volume 4, National Political Publishing, H.2011, tr.526).
On July 20, 1954, the Agreement on Restoring Peace in Indochina was signed in Geneva (Switzerland). Vietnam was temporarily divided into two areas north and south of the 17th parallel for the two sides to gather forces. In the spirit of the Agreement, Vietnam was temporarily divided into two zones. However, before the Geneva Agreement, the US had gradually replaced France in the Indochina war.
The US government’s plot was using Government of Ngo Dinh Diem to carry out long isolation in Vietnam, turned South Vietnam into a new colonial style, the outpost Anti-communism in East - South Asia, to built levees to prevent communism coming down in southern Vietnam.
With US’ backing, Ngo Dinh Diem did not enforce the Geneva Agreement and started the campaign to destroy the revolutionary forces, even up the “northward” plan.
Once again the people of Vietnam had to fight for a peaceful country. And after years of arduous battle with countless sacrifices and loss, Vietnam Fatherland became united. After war, Vietnam was devastated. The number of bombs down our country was more than twice the number of American and British bombs dropped in Europe during World War II. Almost all of the economic infrastructure, transport in northern was bombed several times. Millions of people died in 20 years of war. Injured and disable people were much higher and continues to rise in the years after the war as a result of remained bombs. More than 43 million liters of Agent Orange sprayed by the US army in South Vietnam also cause disasters for many generations. To overcome the consequences, Vietnam needs much effort and time, more sustainable peace - the prerequisite for the development.
The lesson of recent decades shows that, by maintaining peace and stability, Vietnam has achieved many significant important accomplishments to revive and develop the country after the war, including the achievements appreciated by the international community a.
“War never again!”. A world of peace is essential, above all with all peoples. Only peace can help to focus on developing and addressing the global problems because of the existence, development of our peoples and other ethnic groups. With Vietnam, it is even more necessary because only with peace we have the opportunity to continue the innovation to build the country, and mankind against poverty, disease, war. Vietnam wants to be friends with all countries, a reliable partner, a responsible member of the international community, active integration and cooperation for development in peace, and prosperity, and contributes preventing armed conflict, creates an enabling environment for the process of negotiating peaceful settlement of all disputes.

Armies are meant to fight other armies. Military forces are not designed to combat roadside bombs, civilians with a Kalashnikov, or evade ambushes in an alleyway or remote corner of a city.

Great powers, like the U.S., USSR, and others have consistently learned that guerrilla warfare, either in rural areas like Vietnam and Afghanistan, or urban regions like Fallujah and Mogadishu, remove all the advantages possessed by superior weaponry.

When the political rhetoric of "they hate our freedom" and "fight them over there" overshadows the lessons of history, even the most powerful country will lose wars to goat herders and farmers willing to die in overwhelming numbers.

In a counterinsurgency war, all the advantages of a superior military power are mitigated by the fact that enemies know the terrain and can disappear within the local population.

Americans should never again send their men and women to engage in wars that require midnight raids on grape farmers.

All our nuclear weapons, tanks, and aircraft won't help soldiers invade the house of a grape farmer. All of our money and resolve will amount to an eventual withdrawal, with the grape farmers living life in the manner they've done for centuries.

Undoubtedly, such examples of urban combat not only create more enemies, but continue a cycle of violence that begins with fear of a terrorist attack, or glowing rhetoric about a "war on terror."

This is the most pronounced endorsement of the use of force of any pope ... in the last 100 years

One nation alone cannot judge how you stop this, how you stop an unjust aggressor,

After World War II, the idea of the United Nations came about: It's there that you must discuss 'Is there an unjust aggression? It seems so. How should we stop it?' Just this. Nothing more.
