Vietnam PM attacks 'barbarous US crimes' on war anniversary

Vietnamese veterans take part in a parade in Ho Chi Minh City on April 30, 2015 marking the 40th anniversary of the fall of SaigonVietnam’s premier on Thursday hit out at the “barbarous crimes” of its wartime American foe as the nation marked four decades since the fall of Saigon, an event that delivered a communist victory and a painful blow to US moral and military prestige. The central streets of southern Ho Chi Minh City — formerly Saigon — were filled with a forest of hammer and sickle flags of the Communist Party, as regiments of goose-stepping soldiers filed past the country’s top leaders. In front of Independence Palace — whose gates northern tanks clattered through in one of the iconic moments of the 1975 victory — Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung struck out at the US attempt to contain the spread of communism in Southeast Asia through war in Vietnam. The physical affects of conflict still linger, including through deformities that Vietnam says are caused by the dioxin Agent Orange, sprayed by the US air force to pare back the thick jungle used as cover by the northern guerrilla forces.
