US military activity in SE Asia continued after fall of Saigon in 1975

US military activity in SE Asia continued after fall of Saigon in 1975

 

This shocking information was provided overnight by a credible, but necessarily anonymous source.   The US Navy generously offered to send me back to college to get a Masters degree in foreign languages and a PhD in International Affairs in order to become a career Naval Intelligence officer.  However, I declined the offer and another later one to be sent overseas a third time for covert activities.   At that point, I lost access to classified information . . . but all along, however, my specialties were Mexico, Central America and Scandinavia, not Southeast Asia.   This person remained in contact with such sources.

Honestly, I don’t think that Jimmy Carter knew this information, even after he was elected President.   Being a former career Naval officer, he was probably the only person in Georgia, who knew what I “quietly” did in Scandinavia, but he never even hinted about these shocking facts below. The irony is that Georgia State law enforcement mercilessly persecuted me between 2000 and 2010 because some moron, who was a Vietnam war vet, assumed that because I worked in Sweden for awhile in the mid-1970s,  I was a “draft evader.”  

 

“Bombing by USAF B-52’s, US Special Forces Operations and Intel Units continued for several more years after the fall of Saigon.  US military activities focused primarily on “rebel forces” that had “fled” into the mountains of Cambodia and Laos. Eventually some of the action focused on the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

Gold bullion was provided by US intel agencies to tribal chiefs in Cambodia and Laos to continue to fight Khmer Rouge and Viet forces.”

… now you know more of the story…

The following two tabs change content below.
Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.

    The movie “Apocalypse Now” touched on some of that. And don’t forget what we did to the Montenegard people.

    The same guy who pursued you as a draft dodger most liked voted for the real draft dodger Trump. Hypocrisy really dose have no bounds.

    • Well, I have to be honest with people. I never officially served as an active duty officer. However, I was looking forward to serving in the Seabees. It was the Navy,who unilaterally converted my contract that I signed at age 18 to inactive status and then asked me to do some “favors” for the nation. That is certainly not being a draft evader. This cop could easily have found that out. Obviously, a lot of people didn’t care that Mr. Trump was a real draft evader.
