 SUBJ: Directives on Military Proselyting Requirements by the Current
 Affairs Committee of Do Son, aka the VC Region 6 Party Committee.(U)
    
(C-Dec  72) Items 1-3 (10 pages; reproduction; B-3) Routing slip with two
attached directives dated 18 May 72, prepared by Nguyen Nhan ((title, and
agency unspecified)), forwarded to all subordinate cadre instructs the
addressees to conduct political indoctrination classes for the members of all
subordinate special action units and agencies. The  purpose of these classes,
is to make their members thoroughly understand the two attached directives
outlining The military proselyting requirements of the Region ((meaning the VC
Region 6 Party Committee)).
    
The two attached directives one dated 5 Apr 72 and the other dated 8 Jun 72
((sic)), both prepared by the Current Affairs Committee of Do Son ((possibly
the VC Region 6 Party Committee)), forwarded to all subordinate province Party
current affairs committees, urge the addressees to follow good military
proselyting examples set by the Phan Ly ((District Party Committee)) of Blah
Thuan Province by making every effort to personally contact enemy ((RVNAF))
troops. This is to tell the latter that they now have no other choice than to
save themselves and their own families from death by taking part in troop
revolts and returning to the ((VC)) Revolution. Future military proselyting
successes will depend largely on the support of the populace. Consequently,
the addressees should place emphasis on spreading the ((PRG's)) 10-point
policy towards enemy personnel among the local residents. Only by so doing can
the  local residents understand the friendly side effectively help conceal
enemy ((RVNAF)) deserters or draft dodgers, and actively participate in
((VC-lod)) political struggles against enemy conscription and troop upgrading
activities. It is now very necessary to convert the dependents of ((RVN))
People's Self-Defense Force members into a striking ((meaning motivating))
force for future ((VC  initiatod)) military proselyting and political struggle
activities The elimination of tyrants ((meaning aggressive  members)) among
RVN People's Self-Defense Force units is also of vital importance. This is
aimed at helping People's Self-Defense Force members  generate troop revolts,
seize local administrative  power, and liberate their home hamlets and
villages. Future  military proselyting  activities should also be aimed at
removing enemy outposts from Local areas, thus leaving no hiding places for
tyrants (including friendly ((VC)) defectors) and enemy local administrative
officials. As for the destruction of enemy ((strategic)) hamlets, the
documents advocate that efforts should first focused on propagandizing

people living in important hamlets prior to being shifted toward motivating
those living in hamlets of lesser importance. Friendly personnel should
motivate from 15 to 20 local residents at a time and send them to attend a
two-day political indoctrination session held in liberated ((VC controlled))
areas. These people ahould be indoctrinated to know how to tell friends from
foes and to deepen their hatred of the enemy. Upon returning to ((RVN))
strategic hamlets, they will play a key role in initiating military
proselyting activities and especially in generating political struggles, to
demand that responsible RVN authorities return all ((resettlement)) residents
to their native villages. Those youths who have just returned to their native
villages ((from RVN strategic hamlets)) will be allowed to hold on to their
land for farmwork at the beginning. Afterwards, they will be gradually
motivated to enlist in ((VC)) guerrilla and other armed units. Although
friendly ((VC)) military proselyting ability is good,  the documents state
that the results achieved thus far have been unsatisfactory.
