Topic Guide: Vietnam War – North

The Vietnam War is without a doubt one of the most contradictory time periods in the modern world. It is a history steeped in the blood of men who gave their lives hoping for a better tomorrow. But what if it was different; what if you could re-write history and maybe change the entire direction of the modern world? What if you could create a better tomorrow? Welcome to DMUNC 2016’s Vietnam Joint crisis committee:

The committee starts immediately after the critical month of October 1954. The country has already been divided along the 17° North Latitude in accordance with the Geneva Accords, the French have moved out of Hanoi leaving Vietnam, and with upcoming elections in hope of unifying the country, much is at stake. With the American-backed South and the Communist-backed North, the sides have been set in Vietnam, and you shall soon cast the dice of fate…Good luck to you all.

Viet Minh: “Tread carefully my comrades! North Vietnam is determined to fly the Communist flag, freeing the entire Vietnamese citizenry from capitalist oppression. Myself, the head chair, Ho Chi Minh, hopes to ensure a future of Communism in Vietnam for generations to come. Let us raise arms together against the foreign oppressors and unite this beautiful country under Communism!”

So, once again Delegates, make your choice, for one way or another a future shall be designed, and in the call of time’s high tide, history shall be written.
