Just history..

Yesterday, when I was reading about Vo Nguyen Giap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vo_Nguyen_Giap) – The first general and also the number one general of People’s Army of Vietnam, I found he was one of the Asian Heroes in term of National Buiders – issued by Time Asian :

There’s one more Vietnames in this list, it’s Thich Nhat Hanh ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thich_Nhat_Hanh ), who has many efforts for the peace of Vietnam and bring the light of Buddha to many people in the world. He urged Martin Luther King, Jr. to publicly oppose the Vietnam War; King nominated Hanh for the Nobel Peace Prize (January, 1967).

Later, reading the article said McNamara had passed away, I kept reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_McNamara tracing the history flow, I found General Marshall and the Marshall Plan , I noticed the Nobel Prize, then I was looking at the people who had been nominated (the list)

Found the only Vietnamese who had give the Nobel Prize of Peace is Lê Đức Thọ, but he didn’t agree to recieve it.

I continued reading about John McCain, the candidate who had just run for the American President. It’s a surprise when I found he was a pilot in Vietnam war, and was shot down at TrucBach lake in Hanoi and was imprisoned. In TrucBach lake there’s a statue of him to memorise the victory of defending Hanoi from the attack of US aircrafts
