I am here, Ho Chi Minh.
Yes, it is I, the leader of the liberation forces of my country. I loved my country and was not deterred at all by the military might of your country. In my heart, I did not hate all Americans, but I did feel justified in opposing what America was doing in my own country.
Over here, all the rules are different. Most spirits find that their enemy is not a foreign conquering power, but their own selves. Many of my soldiers have suffered greatly over here. We committed atrocities, just as your countrymen did, and every act of cruelty has been met by suffering and appropriate penalties.
I did not believe in a God on Earth. But despite the strong Buddhist influence in Vietnam, which, as you know, denies a Supreme Being, I did find my way to belief in a Creator, this despite so many earth influences which I brought with me.
I wish to send a message of peace to the Earth. I have understood that at least some American leaders felt sincerely that what they were doing was just. I know this is not your opinion, but, quite frankly, your opinion doesn’t matter in these cases, since the issue is strictly between these leaders and their Creator.
Let me clarify something for you. You have always been, and always will be, against war and for peace. If other mortals do not share these views, they will have to work it out with their Creator. But I can assure you that you will be vindicated, for both the forces of History and Divine Will are lining up to produce a very powerful peace movement. Despite what may appear, the population of the Earth is now war-weary, and at the appropriate time, solutions will be found to eliminate conflict in these troubled areas.
Meanwhile, every mortal has a certain configuration of attitudes as to the issue of war, and the reaping will follow the sowing. What I am getting at is that, as impossible as it may seem, war itself will come increasingly into question. Certain people will continue to have belligerent attitudes, but they will not prevail.
So, in short, out of the darkness will emerge the light of hope. Humanity has to learn that war is not the answer. I see this so clearly now.
God bless you, and God bless all the people of the Earth.
Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890 – September 2, 1969) was a Vietnamese revolutionary and statesman, who later became Prime Minister (1946–1955) and President (1955–1969) of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.
Ho is most famous for leading the Viet Minh independence movement from 1941 onward, establishing the communist-governed Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945 and defeating the French Empire in 1954 at Dien Bien Phu. Ho was fluent in Vietnamese, several dialects of Chinese, English, and French. He was also known to speak Thai, Spanish, German and Russian. Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) is named after him.
