Mother Mushroom Jailed For Ten Years

Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynhhas ( Alias ' mother mushroom ' )  has been banged up in Vietnam for ten years for criticising her government.  

 

Quynh, the single mother of two young children, maintained her innocence throughout the trial, her lawyer said. “Nguyen Ngoc Nhu Quynh did not admit that she committed any crime, saying she has a right to freedom of expression,” Don said.

Re: Mother Mushroom Jailed For Ten Years

10 years?..for expressing an opinion? I wonder what she'd have got for telling the judge to 'do one'

With the US shaking their fists at this situation, what's the betting that Vietnam War II is on its way to free the people from tyranny and install democracy, and will once again make the US look like idiots for doing so?

The US is to busy trying to stitch up Syrian president Assad @twocvbloke They might add them to the list though for their never ending wars with the world.

More going here methinks and far more than just the one article expressing an opinion. It's not that many years since we were shipping them off to Australia for doing the same thing.

As for the US, they need to mind their own business as Vietnam is the last quagmire they want to get themselves sucked into.  

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
