It seems an exercise in hair-splitting, however, that Washington pursues every avenue of correct international relations with Vietnam, save one. Vietnam's foreign policy, while always attentive to China, is clearly aligned with the region, notably Asean. Its military is formidable but nothing like it was before the 1978 invasion of Cambodia and the traumatic losses of that conflict. This is the reasoning already employed by those who favour arms sales to Vietnam. It is the reasoning US President Barack Obama is likely to use in his declaration ending the ban on military sales.
