    • Well, another example of facts being ignored.

      From the Hilton web site:

      "Hilton Hanoi Opera
      1 Le Thanh Tong Street, Hanoi, Vietnam
      Tel: +84-4-9330500 Fax: +84-4-9330530

      Located in the heart of Hanoi within walking distance of the central business district, government ministries, non-governmental offices and major local attractions, the 269-room Hilton Hanoi Opera features, among many other first-class facilities, double-glazed windows, luxuriously fitted bathrooms with separate shower units, high-speed Internet access and a home direct calling service in every room."

      But what can you expect from a NU grad. The only university where the Physical Ed group teaches cheating and manipulating bids on a score.

      • Jerk-American POWs coined the Hanoi Hilton as the food and condiions were so bad,I assure you it was no Hilton or no Opera.It was the Vietnamese that insisted the new colonial-style hotel be called the Hanoi Hilton Opera because they wanted to disassociate from their torture stockade "Hanoi Hilton" which is nearby.Jim Stockdale VADM USN-ret MOH died last week and the 7-years of torture spent in the Hanoi Hilton & The Zoo didn't help.On 16 July 2005 services will be held for him aboard RONALD REAGAN moored at North Island.Now that we cleared that up Jerk,it is obvious you would never got thru NORTHWESTERN or even be accepted,tell us what high school you dropped out of.BTW-My degrees are BSEE with NROTC from NORTHWESTERN.Also degrees from STANFORD,NAVAL WAR COLLEGE & NATIONAL WAR COLLEGE.Waiting to hear from you punk.
