Oh yeah and history 101 to help educate you younger generation. The hmong people hail from the mountainous regions of Laos. During the Vietnam war the U.S. recruited the hmong people to help fight the communist vietnamese which is now referred to as "the secret war in laos".
Here's some background information, during the vietnam war the communist vietnamese were using the Ho Chi Minh trail to transport good to southern vietnam and supply the viet coungs (southern communist vietnamese). The Ho Chi Minh was a trail that lead through Laos and into south vietnamese from north vietnam. The U.S. could not attack this trail because it was in laos and also for other reasons, so what did they do?? They got "smart" and recruited the laotians, the hmong, and the other people in the area to do the fighting for them. This way they were not "technically" attacking laos, but had other people do it for them.
Then you know what happens next, after some years the U.S. decides to pull out from Vietnam. Wait, but what about the people who fought for them?? Oh they're left behind. After the Communist Vietnamese Government takes over, them and the Pathet Lao make a general statement to "Eradicate the land of those who helped the americans" in other words, Genocide. They pillaged the lands and killed all those of the said origins, namely one of them being the Hmong. So many of the hmong people had to flee to thailand as refugees. The U.S. in some attempts allowed some of the hmong people to come to America, yet there are still many left back in Laos and Thailand. Till this day there are still many hmong who are in refuge camps and STILL fighting the vietnamese in laos and thailand. Hmm funny though, these things aren't in our history class textbooks :P
