Peace Noodles in Vietnam

The Los Angeles Times recently highlighted the Pho Binh noodle cafe in Saigon, Vietnam.  According to the article, the cafe served as a place where the F100 Viet Cong cell planned and implemented the January 1968 Tet Offensive.

The Tet Offensive occurred during a Vietnamese holiday when a two-day cease fire was previously agreed upon.  The attack was intended to attack civilian and military installations in South Vietnam at one time to end the war quickly.

Check out the LA Times article.
