Good luck finding anything positive. You'll need it.

Military Point of view
Political Point of view
Could someone help me understand why Politicians and Military official actually wanted to go to war in Vietnam?
Actually, from a purely Military perspective there WAS some good to come out of Vietnam. There were some very important lessons learned in the way to NOT fight a war.
The entire point of the Vietnam was was to stop the spread of Communism in Asia.
But there had to be some important people seeing perks
Really? Many say that the war was lost at home because of a severely biased media; the likes of Rather and Cronkite.
Well, we stopped the spread of Communism...and that led to us winning the Cold War.
1,000,000 dead communists

A lot of "cons", very few "pros". One I can think of was great music.
