    Vietnamese media reports the new $200 million factory of Hanwha Aero Engines will start operating in April this year. As the company is a major parts supplier for Pratt & Whitney, the likelyhood is high Vietnam will become part of F-35 global production chain.

    Two more Hanwha Aero Engines factories will be completed in 2022.

    Remarkable example of the visceral hatred and enemity between US and Vietnam that cost millions of dead being is is today converted in a positive force. Much respect.

    Contrast this with US relations with Cuba and Iran, and it's even more remarkable. Not many lives lost in those countries, but the enmity has been long-standing.

    Interesting point you make. I saw a fight between two guys. I saw them plastering each until both could barely stand up anymore, bloodied and torn clothes. Then exhausted both call it quits. Both shook hands and hugged each other. They walked entirely free from any grudge against each other. It was amazing display of catharsis.

    This also appears to be the case with countries that fought like lions. Fought until they lost millions. Fought until there was no fight left in them. Fought until not a family escaped with a lost son, dad, uncle or colleague. This appears to make a profound change on those societies. Think of Germany, Japan, Vietnam.

    Then contrast this with countries where there is drip, drip, trickle trickle or short wars that seem aggregate hate and animosity for ever and ever without end. Think Cuba, think Iran, think India/Pakistan, think Afghanistan.

    Strange.

    It is not as strange if you consider the effect of having a common enemy. Vietnam and US get much closer when they have a common enemy -- China. When China and US had a common enemy --- USSR, these two got closer to each other and China ended up beating on Vietnam, which was on the side of USSR.

    It's not impossible for China to open plan in Latin America to produce drones especially Cuba and Mexico.

    Some countries nurse anti americaism as if it is a part of their national identity. There are times of war, there are times of peace. And sometines it is good for everybody to move on.
