EDITORIAL NOTE: A communist vet who at 16 fudged his birth date so he could enroll into the People's Army (PAVN) to wage the war in the South now speaks out against the same government he had served in the past.
In this Youtube video, he explains that as a disabled person (loss of function of one arm and one leg), he does not depend on the government but has to work to provide for his wife and children. When his private business took off, government officials "stole" it from him (he does not explain how).
Although he has detailed his case to the Hanoi government through newspapers and letters (about 10 kg in weight total), it has not answered him. That is why he has decided to go public through Youtube. 
A Hanoi Vet Speaks Out Against the Hanoi Government


This is not the first time PAVN vets have spoken against the Hanoi government.
In Bao Ninh's Sorrow of War, the stepfather of the protagonist Kien told him:
"It is not that I advise you to respect your life more than anything else, but not to die uselessly for the needs of others." (Bao Ninh pp.58-59)

Many soldiers did not like the war:
"We have so many of those damned idiots up there in the North enjoying the profits of war. but it's the sons of peasants who have to leave home... The ones who loved the war were not the young men but the others like the politicians, middle aged men with fat bellies and short legs." (Bao Ninh pp. 21, 75)

One crippled veteran said,
"Please ask the heroic general (Giap) if the General Offensive (the Tet Offensive) was worth it...tell him one of his soldiers, a lot of his soldiers, aren't sure," (Safer. Flashbacks, p 20)

"When they need soldiers, they cover the people with armor, put guns into the people's hands. When all is said and done, when it comes time for the banquets, they put the people on an altar, and feed them incense and ashes. But the real food, that's always for them." Duong Thu Huong, Novel without a name, p 275)

Bao Ninh wrote,
"This kind of peace?...So much blood, so many lives were sacrificed--for what? I now have to live with broken dreams and with pain. (Bao Ninh p 42)" Those who survived found the peace "painful, bitter, and sad...Justice may have won, but cruelty, death, and inhuman violence have also won." (Bao Ninh p 193)
