No, no, no, no, no. HIV evolved from Simian Immunodeficiency Virus, which is found in chimpanzees and other primates.

SIV has a high tendency for xenotropism. Back in the 1930's, monkey kidney cells were used as vectors for establishing cell lines having unique and useful properties as they are used for that purpose even to today. It is thought that the evolution from SIV to HIV happened as a result of an error in culturing, cells for immunization

But this can't be the whole story because HIV has an enormous speed of mutation which accounts for its across-the-spectrum ability to infect cells, particularly those of the immune system

Secondly, the Saigon government was under a threat by non-communists who believed the Saigon government was not doing enough to protect the nation from a takeover by communists who wished to join with communist North Vietnam to form one unified communist nation.Demonstrations in the capital city of Saigon and elsewhere would be infiltrated by communists with the design to exploit any turmoil with South Vietnam.
