Too many empty noises, too much sorcery, for this 2-paragraph letter from PM Phạm Văn Đồng to PM Zhou En Lai on Sept. 14, 1858.
China threw it onto the Internet, crowning it as Công Hàm. I am not sure what Công Hàm really means, but it sounds important and mysterious. Someone translated the name into Diplomatic Note.
And the Chinese, masters in the art of smoke blowing, said the Công Hàm meant that Prime Minister Phạm Văn Đồng agreed to China’s sovereignty over the Paracels and the Spratlys.
Unfortunately, a bunch of anti-commie overseas Vietnamese picked it up after the Chinese, and advertised the letter as Công Hàm Bán Nước (Công Hàm to sell the country). So, the letter became famous, thanks to Chinese propaganda.
But indeed, all the scholars I know (including the non-lawyer scholars) agree that the letter said only one simple thing, that Prime Minister PVĐ agreed to the 12-mile territorial sea adopted by the Chinese in 1958.
I wrote the following imaginary trial between Counsel for China (Cch), Counsel for Vietnam (Cvn) and a five-judge arbitration panel, talking mainly through one judge (J), to show what PM PVĐ intended to write in his letter. Đọc tiếp

China effectively internationalized its dispute with Vietnam over an oil rig in the South China Sea on Monday by submitting its claim against Hanoi to the UN Secretary General.

A Vietnamese woman carried banners protesting China to the front gate of Reunification Palace in Ho Chi Minh City and burned herself to death early Friday morning, a city official has confirmed to Thanh Nien.
Le Truong Hai Hieu, vice chairman of District 1 government, says they believe the suicide was inspired by a combination of serious life problems and anger created by China’s placement of a mobile oil rig in Vietnamese waters.
One day, a young student was taking a walk with his professor. Students usually called this kind and gentle professor by an intimate name “friend of students”.
While walking, the two encountered an old pair of shoes on the road. They thought the shoes belonged to a poor farmer who was working in the nearby field. Probably the farmer was about to finish his work day. Đọc tiếp

Death Sentence for Sudanese Pregnant Woman is Miscarriage of Justice
The sentencing to death of an eight month-pregnant Christian woman for her alleged conversion from Islam, and to 100 lashes for having relations with her husband, is blatant violation of not only international human rights laws and Sudan’s own constitution, but also Islam and Sharia, WEA-RLC asserts.
