Cigarettes Are Best Image of End of USA Trade Embargo with Vietnam

At minute 95:37 of Episode 10 of the PBS Vietnam War series, I captured this screenshot:

USA cigarettes E10-9537

The preceding narration was:

In 1994, after the Vietnamese met the Americans’ demand, the United States lifted its trade embargo. Full normalization came the following year.

I hope the Vietnamese got something more than USA cancer sticks.

I’ve written several blog entries about the Burns & Novick PBS documentary The Vietnam War. I’ve also tweeted about it.
