January 2012 the signers of this Manifesto called themselves "Bloc 8406", referencing the date of the document. ''Vietnam: End Attacks on Year-Old Democracy Movement'' (Human Rights Watch, 4 June 2007) "Body Count" shows some of Joker's life as a war correspondent for the Marines in 1968. While in Da Nang (Da Nang Air Base), he runs across Cowboy, now assistant squad leader in the Lusthog Squad. As the Tet Offensive begins, Joker is dispatched to Phu Bai with his photographer, Rafter Man. Here, he unwillingly accepts a promotion from Corporal to Sergeant, and the two travel to Huế to cover the enemy's wartime atrocities and meet up with Cowboy again. During a battle, Joker is "wounded" (actually only knocked out by an RPG (Rocket propelled grenade) concussion blast) and the book goes into a psychedelic dream sequence. After his quick recovery, Joker learns that the platoon commander was killed by a friendly (friendly fire) grenade, while the squad leader went insane and attacked an NVA (Vietnam People's Army) position with a BB gun only to be shot down. Later, Joker and Rafter Man battle a sniper who killed another Lusthog Marine and an entire second squad; the battle ends with Rafter Man's first confirmed kill and Cowboy being wounded slightly. As Joker and Rafter Man head back to their base, Rafter Man panics and dashes into the path of an oncoming tank, which fatally crushes him. Joker is reassigned to Cowboy's squad as a rifleman for wearing an unauthorized peace button on his uniform. The writing style in "Body Count" is more complex than that in "The Spirit of the Bayonet."

Timetables indicate domestic routes covering destinations as far north as Huế, as far south as Cà Mau (Ca Mau), and including almost every major city in between. Guérard des Lauriers further believed that the new rites of ordination and episcopal consecration (newest Pontificale Romanum, new forms by promulgation of 18 June 1968) promulgated by Pope Paul VI were doubtfully valid (or even outrightly invalid) and therefore it was necessary to take action to secure a valid succession of bishops (apostolic succession) for the preservation of the (Latin Rite) Roman Catholic Church. He began discussions with Dr. Eberhard Heller (Eberhard Heller) and Dr. Hiller, German sedevacantist activists who were harboring Most. Rev. Ngô Ðình Thuc Pierre Martin (Ngo Dinh Thuc Pierre Martin) (1897–1985), the former archbishop of Huế, Vietnam, and after Guérard des Lauriers O.P. agreed to abate his Sedeprivationism and adhere to the theoretical tenets of Sedevacantism, it was agreed that Archbishop emeritus Ngo Dinh Thuc would consecrate him as a bishop.

poem

; and the royal lifestyle and customs have had a significant impact on the characteristics of the people of Huế, even long afterwards. As a rule, royal family members were named

after a poem written by Minh Mạng, the second king of Nguyễn Dynasty. The poem, Đế hệ thi", http: vi.wikipedia.org wiki Minh_M%E1%BA%A1ng has been set as a standard frame to name every generation of the royal family, through which people can know the family order as well as the relationship between royal members. More importantly, the names reflect the essential personality traits that the royal regime would like their offspring

to uphold. This name-giving tradition is proudly kept alive and nowadays people from Huế royal family branches (normally considered 'pure' Huế) still have their names taken from the words in the poem.

''' (1911 – 9 May 1964) was a younger brother and confidant of South Vietnam's first president, Ngô Đình Diệm (Ngo Dinh Diem) and an important member of the Diệm government. Diệm put Cẩn in charge of central Vietnam, stretching from Phan Thiết in the south to the border at the 17th parallel (17th parallel north), with Cẩn ruling the region as a virtual dictator. Based in the former imperial capital of Huế, Cẩn operated private armies and secret police that controlled the central region and earned himself a reputation as the most oppressive of the Ngô brothers. Early life He was born in the Imperial capital of Huế, Vietnam. In 1941, Nguyễn Văn Thuận joined An Ninh Minor Seminary and was ordained a priest on June 11, 1953, by Mgr Jean-Baptiste Urrutia. After six years of further studies in Rome, he was appointed in 1959–1967 as a faculty member and rector of the Seminary of Nha Trang. He was appointed Bishop of Nha Trang on 13 April 1967 and received episcopal consecration on 4 June 1967 at Huế at the hands of Angelo Palmas, Apostolic Delegate to Viêt Nam (and later, Nuncio to Colombia and to Canada), assisted by Bishops Philippe Nguyễn Kim Dien, Apostolic Administrator, ''sede plena'', of Huế, and Jean-Baptiste Urrutia, titular archbishop of Carpato.

History The region was inhabited by people of the Sa Huỳnh culture between around 1000 BC and 200 AD. Remains of this ancient civilization were found in Sa Huỳnh, Quảng Ngãi Province. It was succeeded by a kingdom called Lin-yi (林邑) by the Chinese or Lâm Ấp in Vietnamese that was in existence from 192 AD. Its political center was just north of the South Central Coast near Huế. Lin-yi was culturally influenced by India. According to Chinese sources, it repeatedly raided Jiaozhi, which was one factor that contributed to several wars between Jiaozhi and their Chinese colonizers against Lin-yi in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th century.

The 30 to 40-hour passenger trip between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City is undertaken by few, although visitor resorts such as Huế, Hội An (Hoi An), and Nha Trang lie along the route and generate some tourist traffic. Following the Sino-Vietnamese War of 1978 some travel restraints are still in place in the border region and the usage of the lines north and east of Hanoi is curtailed as a result. The Ho Chi Minh City–Hanoi line is poorly maintained and the engineering infrastructure, much damaged by war, has even now received only temporary repair in many places. In addition, the center of the country is subject to violent annual flooding and bridges are often swept away, causing lengthy closures.

'''Đặng Thùy Trâm''' (born November 26, 1942 in Huế, Vietnam; died on June 22, 1970 in Đức Phổ, Quảng Ngãi Province (Quang Ngai Province), Vietnam) was a Vietnamese civilian doctor who worked as a battlefield surgeon for North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. She was killed, in disputed circumstances, at the age of 27, by American (United States) forces while travelling on a trail in the Ba Tơ jungle in the Quảng Ngãi Province of south-central Vietnam (Nam Trung Bo). Her wartime diaries, which chronicle the last two years of her life, attracted international attention following their publication in 2005. DATE OF BIRTH November 26, 1943 PLACE OF BIRTH Huế, Vietnam DATE OF DEATH June 22, 1970 While the Trịnh ruled over much more populous territory, the Nguyễn had several advantages. Firstly, they initially were on the defensive and rarely launched operations into the north. Secondly, the Nguyễn were able to take advantage of their contacts with the Europeans, specifically the Portuguese (Portugal), to produce advanced cannons with the help of European engineers (for more details, see Artillery of the Nguyễn Lords). Thirdly, the geography was favorable to them, as the flat land suitable for large organized armies is very narrow at the border between the Nguyễn lands and the Trinh territories - the mountains nearly reach to the sea. After the first offensive was beaten off after four months of battle, the Nguyễn built two massive fortified lines which stretched a few miles from the sea to the hills. These walls were built north of Huế (between the Nhật Lệ River and the Sông Hương River (Perfume River)). The walls were about 20 feet tall and seven miles long. The Nguyễn defended these lines against numerous Trịnh offensives which lasted (off and on) from 1631 till 1673, when Trịnh Tạc concluded a peace treaty with the Nguyễn Lord, Nguyễn Phúc Tần, and so Vietnam was divided between the two ruling families.
