Happy Anniversary

30 years of communism in Laos. No doubt the people will be celebrating - and so, surely, will all the '68ers. What's that? They can't haven't forgotten! Well, if the Grauniad is anything to go by, it looks as if they have.

Maybe there are a few reasons for amnesia here.

'Few glimpse the subsurface realities, of a Utah-sized country whose every neighborhood is under surveillance for dissidents, where most people live on less than $2 a day and which hasn't a single decent hospital to show for its billions in foreign aid.'

Still, just think how much worse things would be if the US imperialists hadn't been driven out. You only have to look at South Korea and Taiwan, don't you?
