LET'S NOT FORGET THAT VIETNAM HAS SOME SERIOUS HUMAN RIGHTS PROBLEMS



Vietnam is seeking a strategic alliance with the US. Its uneasy relationship with China causes some American strategic thinkers to welcome such an alliance. But this should not permit Hanoi to abuse their citizens's rights with impunity. That is the message Bruce Kesler and his fellow bloggers are trying to remind US authorities.
