Taking tiger out of forest- nightmare for Vietnamese Police chief To Lam?

Generals are often belligerent but no tricks. In the 2011-2016 term, then Minister of Public Security Tran Dai Quang and Defense Minister Phung Quang Thanh were two martial arts generals. When these two men left their forces, they immediately became vulnerable to other political opponents. Poor political vision, wrong assessment of opponents leads to untimely erection and results in bitter fruit.

When Mr. Phung Quang Thanh was Defense Minister he was the king of one realm. At that time, his son, Phung Quang Hai, was under no control in the ministry. Then, in 2016, at the end of two terms, Mr. Thanh had to leave the post. However, when he retired, he was like a “broken eagle” accepting to leave the game to others.

So was Mr. Tran Dai Quang. He was head of the powerful Minister of Public Security. He turned the Ninh Binh fraction very powerful at the Ministry of Public Security. But he was taken out of the ministry by Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong. When he was no longer the Minister of Public Security, Mr. Tran Dai Quang was just a pupet on the political chessboard. An insider’s opinion for Thoibao.de commented like that.

Mr. Tran Dai Quang, who is said to have felt in “tiger taken out of forest”

It is worth mentioning that Mr. Tran Dai Quang did not see the danger when he was lured out of the Ministry of Public Security. Mr. Tran Dai Quang could only see the front, not the back, so he wanted to sit in the Four Pillars as the President and then run for the post of General Secretary. Because the way from President to General Secretary is shorter than from Minister of Public Security to General Secretary. And by 2021, Mr. Tran Dai Quang is exactly 65 years old, not too old to remain in the Politburo. At that time, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong had just completed 2 terms and then withdrew. However, his calculation was not better than that of Mr. Trong.

When Mr. Tran Dai Quang left the Ministry of Public Security, it was considered that Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong had successfully used the “taking tiger out of forest” scheme. When the tiger was taken out of forest, it no longer has the inherent ability. And in the middle of the plain, “tiger” Tran Dai Quang was killed, that’s part of history.

According to information obtained by Thoibao.de, Mr. To Lam is also afraid that he will step on someone’s “tiger taken out of forest” scheme, which is why he refused to leave the Ministry of Public Security. In fact, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong proposed Mr. To Lam to be the President, partly to save To Lam’s political career. However, To Lam did not want to and made the excuse that he needed to stay at the Ministry of Public Security to take care of many unfinished tasks assigned by the General Secretary.

Mr. To Lam, not wanting to step on Tran Dai Quang’s footsteps

In fact, Mr. Trong did not repeat the “taking tiger out of forest” scheme with To Lam as he did with Tran Dai Quang, but Mr. To Lam was still afraid. Mr. To Lam was afraid because he had too many enemies. In particular, Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s side was very bitter about Mr. To Lam, because he unleashed his powerful force to track every nook and cranny, in order to pull out Ms. Tran Thi Nguyet Thu’s mistake. In addition, Mr. Pham Minh Chinh, who is being forced to “take responsibility” by the Nguyen Phu Trong – Vuong Dinh Hue alliance, is the same as Nguyen Xuan Phuc. Who knows, when “tiger” To Lam came out of the forest “Ministry of Public Security,” what would happen if it is not the General Secretary but another man who will take action?

In fact, when he still is the Minister of Public Security, Mr. To Lam can look down on Mr. Pham Minh Chinh, but if he becomes state president, he will not be no longer an opponent of Pham Minh Chinh.

Vietnamese politics in the days after Tet is boiling again because of the position of President. The two qualified people, To Lam and Vo Van Thuong, refuse it. Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong now has a headache and doesn’t know whom he can take to fill this position. Two people close to the left and right (Vo Van Thuong and To Lam) are not interested in this chair. To Lam is afraid of losing the ability to defend himself, Vo Van Thuong refuses because of his ambition. What the outcome will be, wait and see.

Mr. Pham Minh Chinh is still a strong pillar
