 I just happened to open my e-mail box and caught these two juxtaposing
 articles I htought some friends of mine had played a joke on me.  I am simply
 re-posting these two articles with no comment and with numbed feelings for

 Followed is a letter to Dao Duy Tung (in both Vietnamese and
 English) by a Vietnamese with the pen name "The Saigonese".  The
 letter reveals some top secrets of the Vietnamese Communist Party
 and that of its leaders including Ho Chi Minh. The revelation
 includes cold-blooded orders to massacre party members out of
 suspicion and patriotic Cambodians during the VCP occupation of
 You have not passed away for you are still alive. But writing this

 Party Central Committee disclosed that Dao Duy Tung has had blood
