Um you seem to have you're facts confused because the USA beat the vietnemese fair and square everyone knows yet offensive was there last dying gasp whose side are you on anyways?

Do you have any idea how much firepower we dumped on Vietnam with are eyes closed? I thought so.



You beat them so well the USA was forced to withdraw and south vietnam to surrender!
Such a great victory! As great as the French victory over the Germans in 1940!

And this is news cuz why? Oh yeah because King Obama didnt have a pair.

Well President Trump does and hes going to bring are country back to the greatness it lost during the 1960s because of stoned hippies loosing vietnam.



Tried to pass this by...." stoned hippies losing Viet Nam ". Most of us Viet Nam vets weren't stoned when we got there, but many turned to that state of mind to alleviate the pain of losing friends , watching people die, not being allowed to win and effects of ptsd. Your implication that we'll be great again after kickin' some ass in N. Korea is childish at best. I think you need to march right down to the nearest recruiter and sign up.

The reason that America won vietnam war is cause we couldve anihilated that country at any moment but we chose not to. We showed them mercy by pulling out. Are victory couldnt be any clearer.

Oh so the french surrender in 1940 means the french lost, does it? The way I understand it is they chose not to allow there city to be destroyed and there civilians killed. Choosing to surrender seems rather victoriuos in that situation. Sometimes it takes a big man's mentality to be willing to seem like a small man in the ring.

Uh huh and I think YOU need to serve your country and sign up and quit looking for ways to not fight. Remember what JFK said about serving your country? Well this is your opportunity to do right and kick some commie butt.

Actually there long term goal they did win. Short term they left before the final ending. Long term they are a mini clone of the USA socialism died and the became capitalist. After the US left they actually fought communism in the region. Who would have thought having a bunch of GIs come in drink beer smoke pot would get them to want capitalism lol.

I dont think people realize just how americanized vietnam has become. They use US currency they buy US weapons most speak english even some signs and billboards are in english. And we have a defense agreement with them well 2 actually Memorandum of Understanding on Advancing Bilateral Defense Cooperation in 2011 and the U.S.-Vietnam Joint Vision Statement on Defense Relations signed in 2015. So yes the US won it just took along time.

All true, the US achieved it's political aims (eventually) but, surely, from a military viewpoint, they lost?

And if every country in WW2 had that attitude then the world would be speaking German, Japanese and Italian.

Thank god the British, Russians, USA, Canadians, Chinese, Australians and New Zealand didnt have that attitude and fought.

Apparently, France has four states of emergency:
Run, Hide, Surrender, Collaborate......
