Indeed, Commie Laos is the BEST CARE TAKER when it come to taking care
of Hmong-lao. They have been "takign care" of Hmong-lao since the last
great exile after the vietnam war. So it is NOT a suprised that they
continue to do what they do best..."take care" of them. The world
simply just turn a blind eyes to these suffering human.

Vientiane - Communist Laos repeated its vow to take care of 4,500
Hmong returnees until they can fend for themselves, but refused to
allow the United Nations to interview them, state media and diplomatic
sources said Tuesday. Lao Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs
Phongsavath Boupha met with ambassadors from the European Union, US
and Australia on January 15 to allay concerns about some 4,500 ethnic
Hmong who were deported from neighbouring Thailand December 28, the
Vientiane Times reported.
Phongsavath told the ambassadors that Hmong returnees would be able to
live in villages of their own choice and the government had provided
them with food, clothing and medicines on arrival in their homeland,
the state mouthpiece reported.
"The government's long-term plan was to build a house for each family
and allocate land for farming activities," Phongsavath said.
The government has also pledged to supply the returnees with gravity-
fed water systems, toilets, roads and schools, and to provide food
until they are able to make their own living.
It has allowed foreign diplomats and three US congressmen to visit the
Hmong resettlement camps, but has barred the United Nations High
Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) from interviewing the returnees.
The UNHCR expressed concern about 150 Hmong who were kept in
Thailand's Nong Khai district for more than three years, which the
agency classified as "persons of concern" due to their past records as
"The Lao do not consider these people to be political prisoners and
they feel the UNHCR has made a big mistake in classifying them as
such," a Western diplomat who met with Phongsavath said.
Several Western countries have offered to accept members from that
group of 150 for resettlement.
"The Lao have not ruled this out, but they want the returnees to have
a chance to see whether they would prefer to stay in Laos before they
consider resettlement," the diplomat said.
The Hmong are an ethnic minority group that sided with the US military
in its "secret war" against communism in Laos in the 1960s and 1970s.
Tens of thousands of Hmong fled to Thailand to after the communist
forces took over Laos in 1975.
More than 100,000 Hmong were resettled in the US.
Thailand deported 4,508 Hmong, who had been living in refugee camps
since 2004, last month as part of a policy to cooperate with Laos and
stem the continuing Hmong migration.
Laos, one of the world's few remaining communist states, has been
courting overseas Laotians to return home to invest in the country,
one of the world's poorest.
The government's treatment of the Hmong returnees is deemed an
important litmus test for the success of that campaign, Thai diplomats
said.- Hide quoted text -

LPDR said the same thing in 1975. There is nothing LPDR can offer to
those returning. One boy was run over by a motorcycle while in
transation, LPDR shoeless soldiers stand by did not even care to move
the boy from the street.
Only guns and bombs work with LPDR. Hmong was ambused back and forth
until we took our old guns and bombs, moved to the jungle and fought
back. That fighting did saved thousand of our lives. Without that
fighting back, many of our leaders, and thousand of our Hmong Men have
gone with Vue, Mai, and Toubee Lyfong.
