    Can we get off that myth already? The guys were married into the local community and knew quite well the war was over.
    I am dead serious when I say they found a guy in the late 60s/early 70s who thought the war was still on. He committed suicide after a few years back home. He had thought that all the radio stuff was a trick by the Americans to fool him. I saw the whole story on a Discovery Channel program.

    I have no trouble believing that. However, that is a period of 20-25 years, not 60. Big difference.

    in Vietnam
    戦後、フランスが再び進駐してくると、それに対するベ トナム国民の抵抗戦争(第一次インドシナ戦争)が始ま ったが、この戦争には
    日本軍兵士が多数参加した
    。当時、ベトナムには766人の日本兵がとどまっており A1954年のジュネーブ協定成立までに47人が戦病死した。なかには、陸軍士官学校を創設して、約200人のベトミン士官を養 ャした者もおり、1986年には8人の元日本兵がベトナム政府から \彰を受けた。なお、ジュネーブ協定によって150人が日本へ帰国したが、その他はベ gナムに留まり続けた模様で る。
    766 japanese former soldiers remained in Vietam after 1945.
    until 1954 , 47soldiers was lost....
    some of them founded the Military Academy in Vietnam.
    1986, eight japanese former soldiers were awarded by Vietnam-G.

    A number of principles which later led to the development of television, were discovered late in the 19th century, but television most certainly wasn't invented then. Pretty much every textbook on earth lists the Scotsman, John Logie Baird, as the official inventor of television in 1925 (although he didn't demonstrate it publically until 1926).

    Your discussion is offtopic, but just check the history of television to see that I am right.

    Right, but irrelevant to the point you were trying to make.

    Where did the OP go?
    what is op? means other ppl?
    they were considered as deserters
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvoC0...%E3%80%80japan
    they thought they could not make them independent bacause of defeat.
    Being possible to guess from this video is that they did not intend the
    invasion.
    who knows?

    "OP" is a standard forum shorthand for "Original Poster" (the person who started the thread, in other words).

    And if you read the link you supplied correctly, you'll see that in fact you are wrong. Television was proposed as a concept in the 19th century, but the technology didn't exist until the early 1900s to actually build what we would consider to be a complete working television. In most people's view, 'inventing' something involves creating the technology to actually achieve it.

    Otherwise, you could argue that H.G. Wells 'invented' the time machine, simply because he proposed it as an idea in a fictional novel. The fact that he couldn't (and we still can't) actually build one would be irrelevant.
