Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


    In this context there are some interesting questions:

    Does current regime in Vietnam constitute a threat to countries in this region?
    Should US/UK try to change the regime? If not, then why?

    Thanks in advance for answers!
  2. Given that Vietnam is currently undergoing ' capitalization ' and has a fast growing economy with much ' off-shore' investment in building factories and other other industries [ a mini China ] from western corporations, I doubt that it will be any threat to anyone other than China [ rival for foreign investment ]..

  3. So its now called VIETNAM then. :)
  4. But Vietnam is a communist country anyway and it is too far from democracy. I suppose that if Vieatnam would be weak from military point of view (as Iraq) then possible 'regime change' would be actively discussed.
