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?
Was British non-participation in Vietnamese war a wise decision?

Thanks in advance for answers!

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.

SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM.
