    TOMORROW is the seventh anniversary of the founding of the South Vietnam National Front for Liberation — the glorious standard-bearer of the south Vietnamese people. The Chinese people warmly greet the south Vietnamese people on their grand militant festival and hail the resounding victories they have won in their war of resistance against U.S. aggression and for national salvation!
   Born in the flames of the struggle against U.S. imperialism, the South Vietnam N.F.L. has held high the great banner of resistance against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. Rallying around itself the greatest possible number of people of various strata in south Vietnam, the N.F.L. has been fighting against U.S. imperialism and its lackeys with supreme fortitude and endurance and has given full play to the power of people's war. They have set a magnificent example of armed revolutionary struggle against U.S. imperialism for the people of the whole world.
   For seven years the south Vietnamese people's armed forces, led by the N.F.L., have been fighting with ever greater bravery and strength. They have grown from small groups of guerrillas to a powerful people's army comprising a liberation army, regional armed forces and guerrillas. Creatively applying the strategy and tactics of people's war, they have held the initiative on the battlefield firmly in their hands and have smashed the enemy's repeated "escalations" oC the war. They have put out of action over a million enemy effectives including over 250,000 troops of the U.S. aggressors and their satellites. The U.S. aggressors are sinking deeper and deeper in the vast sea of people's war and are being submerged by it.
   Simultaneously with the south Vietnamese people's heroic resistance against the U.S. aggressors, the army and people of north Vietnam too have chalked up the splendid record of shooting down more than 2,600 U.S. aircraft.
   The great victories of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation have revealed to the hilt the inherent weakness of U.S. imperialism as a paper tiger. U.S. imperialism has committed to its war of aggression against Vietnam nearly half its ground forces, nearly one-fifth of its air force and over a quarter of its navy; it has employed all its up-to-date weapons except atom bombs. Its military expenditure on the war has reached the huge figure of 30,000 million dollars a year. Yet, it has been soundly thrashed and has been brought to bay. This once again explodes the myth about the "invincibility" of U.S. imperialism.
   The great victories of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation have greatly weakened and tied down U.S. imperialism's forces for aggression and have upset its global counterrevolutionary strategic plans. They are a powerful support to the revolutionary struggles of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America and of the rest of the world, and thus have greatly contributed to the cause of world revolution today.
   The great victories of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation have created a glorious example, in the post-World War II period, of one country single-handedly resisting and triumphing over U.S. imperialist aggression. It eloquently proves that to rely on the people, persist in armed struggle and oppose counter-revolutionary war with revolutionary war is the only way for the oppressed nations and peoples to win complete liberation.
   There has always been a struggle between two lines on the attitude towards the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. All revolutionary people of the world regard the Vietnamese people's struggle as their own struggle and resolutely support the Vietnamese people in fighting to the end to drive all the U.S. aggressors out of Vietnam. On the other hand, the Soviet revisionist ruling clique has sought by hook or by crook to bring the Vietnam question into the orbit of Soviet-U.S. collaboration and has given energetic help to U.S. imperialism in peddling its "peace talks" swindle by means of the counter-revolutionary dual tactics of sham support and real betrayal, in a vain attempt to extinguish the revolutionary flames of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. This has fully exposed the Soviet revisionist ruling clique as the No. 1 accomplice of U.S. imperialism and a shameless traitor to the world people's cause of revolution.

At present, the Johnson Administration is engaged in a reckless struggle with the close co-operation of the Soviet revisionist ruling clique to try and save itself from defeat in its war of aggression against Vietnam. It is stepping up its preparations for new military adventures and is even considering the extension of the war to Laos and Cambodia, while at the same time it is continuing to play such tricks as "forcing peace talks through bombing" and "inducing peace talks through a halt in the bombing"; and it is also trying to get the United Nations to meddle in the Vietnam question. However, all these efforts will be of no avail-President Ho Chi Minh has solemnly declared: "We Vietnamese are resolved to fight till not a single U.S. aggressor is left on our beloved land." The Political Programme of the South Vietnam National Front for Liberation clearly points out that the Vietnamese people will fight resolutely till complete victory so long as U.S. imperialism fails to withdraw all of its own troops and those of its satellites out of Vietnam. This has fully expressed the iron will of the 31 million Vietnamese people to unite together and resist U.S. aggression. We are convinced that by persisting in their fight and waging a protracted war of resistance, the Vietnamese people will certainly defeat the U.S. aggressors thoroughly and fulfil their great task of liberating the south, defending the north and reunifying their fatherland.
   Our great leader Chairman Mao has said: "We are now in a great new era of world revolution. The revolutionary upheaval in Asia, Africa and Latin America is sure to deal the whole of the old world a decisive and crushing blow. The great victories of the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation are convincing proof of this. The proletariat and working people of Europe, North America and Oceania are experiencing a new awakening. The U.S. imperialists and all other such vermin have already created their own grave-diggers; the day of their burial is not far off."
   Abiding by the teachings of the great leader Chairman Mao, the Chinese people have always regarded it as their bounden internationalist duty to support the Vietnamese people's war against U.S. aggression and for national salvation. The great victories of China's great proletarian cultural revolution have given the Chinese people greater strength in supporting the just struggle of their Vietnamese brothers. The 700 million Chinese people will always be a strong backing for the Vietnamese people, and the vast territory of China will always be a dependable rear area for the Vietnamese people. The Chinese people armed with Mao Tse-tung's thought will unswervingly support the heroic Vietnamese people in driving out every U.S. aggressor bandit from the sacred land of Vietnam!
