Wow, one time in history when Vietnamese and Chinese fought side by side to repel European invaders

The French historically used foreign muslim troops to do many battles in Vietnam.  I am surprised the VCP didn´t learn from this and use Khmers to occupy Thailand.  They can say that that they helped Cambodia regain territory stolen by Thailand.

Well there is no permanent friend nor permanent enemy. If Chinese interest was to secure their southern border from French incursion, aiding the Vietnamese was a sensible decision to make.

Not that many countries can take on France in the late 1800s..

In the Franco-Prussian war, it fielded an army of over 2 million bristled with rifle divisions and industrially-produced field cannons..and this was long after Waterloo!

Continental power means exactly just that..
