Well of course I have wondered about this too and spoken to many Vietnamese about it. They are a chatty lot. I could easily find someone to talk to for an hour.
They will routinely say stuff like this.....
We were proud to fight the French and the Americans and beat them, but we are not proud to suffer from this corruption.
Of course they remember the support given to them from the Chinese, the Russians and the antiwar movement. This means they don't mind us too much and are not particularly mindful of the crimes of communism. Their brand of communism was less bad than some others, AFAIK.
After they had put an end to the Khmer Rouge, we still supported the KR at the UN.
