The French demanded he turn over the Japanese officers that were helping train his men how to use Japanese weapons so they could be tried as WW2 war criminals.Ho Chi Minh said these are our friends and I canot betray they. Seven years later the French left after the defeat of the French paratroopers at Dien Bien Phu. Personaly I don't see much chance for peace as long as Bibi and his foriegn minister are in charge. Mayby They'll surprise me but I doubt it.
