The people of Vietnam have experienced immense hardships under the rule of French imperialists. After the Japanese occupied our land in WWII, our glorious president Ho Chi Minh led North Vietnam into rebellions against the Japanese and eventually helped lead Vietnam into the First Indochina War to take back our land, our liberties, and our sovereignty. As the United States and other imperialistic powers show interest in this conflict, this Politburo must be aware of the implications of these powers becoming actively involved. Vietnam stands at the crossroads of this conflict and this Politburo must decide whether we strive towards national sovereignty or towards further occupation. I was born to a poor peasant family in the Nghi Tho commune in 1910, during French occupation of Vietnam. Though my childhood lacked many things, it was rich in culture and revolutionary thought. As I grew up, I came to understand Vietnam as a country with a traumatic history in which its people witnessed their loss of independence and freedom through French colonialism. In 1925, I joined the Tan Viet Party Revolution to operate in Saigon but was arrested for 18 months. In the beginning of the 1930’s, I was arrested and exiled to Con Dai but escaped in 1941. I began my political career in 1945 and became an elected member of the Politburo in 1955, before becoming he Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1965. Growing up in an impoverished area, I understand the plights of the Vietnamese and will work to bring about national liberty, freedom, and happiness to my fellow comrades while working to implement policies of independence and self-reliance. In order to create a strong and independent nation, state building is necessary. This politburo must achieve this through communist means and specifically focus on protecting our comrades through land reform and development of class structure. Therefore, this Politburo must: 1) take possession of most private property (special circumstances will require greater consideration) 2) split property evenly to provide citizens with areas to live and farm, 3) integrate the bourgeoisie into society, 4) develop greater communist class structure to equalize Vietnamese society, and 5) develop regional industries in the North. In the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, I propose the development of greater training departments for junior staff members in order to create intellectual, determined, and strong diplomats for our nation. For succession, ideally, our greater and glorious revolutionary leader Ho Chi Minh would remain president. However, after his death, I would urge that this politburo carefully select a leader who is just as passionate, determined, and revolutionary as Ho Chi Minh. Although State Building is a issue that this politburo must deal with, the issue of the impending war holds greater importance. As the Minister of Foreign Affairs, I would urge this Politburo to focus on our efforts on how to fight this war, both militarily and diplomatically. As the imperialist are he United States has shown support for South Vietnam, this Politburo must: 1) unify both North and South Vietnam under a communist government, 2) liberate South Vietnam from the imperialists, 3) use both the military and diplomatic means to reach an agreement with the South, 4) depending on the escalation of this conflict, consider utilizing all levels of warfare, 5) lean towards the Soviet Union as our primary communist ally for resources but still maintain fraternal relations with China, 6) in order to move in the direction of a unified communist state, give higher levels of instruction to the Viet Cong to ensure that the Northern Vietnamese government has a greater hold on South Vietnam.
