Well I don't see much Vietnam can do to them at sea other than shout curses at them from the beach.

Even if Russia wanted to supply them with ships China definetly has the advantage here.

Will be a very interesting development to watch however.

Isn't South Vietnam still allies with America?,, they tried to tell them in the sixties that this would happen,, but no mr bill,,, they wouldn't listen would they.

Me.

And i pray that this time America picks Vietnam too fight for and not China,, I only pray.

Me.

we won the battles in vietnam and if it wasnt for the left and johnson dictating americas actions in vietnam


Facts conveniently forgotten or ignored. And it was all the battles.

Then Washington decided that they had to approve ALL actions taken by the military down to attacking individual targets.

Now where have I recently heard of the same thing happening?

Oh, that's right! Iraq and Afghanistan.

All because of the Ya-who River,,,??,,, had they met the Chinese with an intact supply line,, and not fell for the ambush,,,,, (which too this day i blame on the U.N,, but that's another story.)

Then Vietnam would have been one country.

Moral,,,, never put others in charge.

i personally think both can go to hell

and let america fight for america

the us military has only one function to kill her enemy and win nothing else

never pull that card out haphazardly and when you do tell them victory and get the hell out of the way.

Viet Nam was a "police action"politically trickling in just what the white house thought was necessary and getting our most lethal combatants killed in the process.Brilliant men who taught us how to face horrible enemy activity and responding with equal force/tactics.Good or Evil they do remember us.
In Desert Storm We had no politics until they said stop.The Russians and the rest of the world were quite shocked at what we did as quick as we did it.
Had we declared war and had it been a truthful reason things would have been VERY different,but my soldiers were excellent and they have my respect and pride.
China will learn that shooting from the hips no matter how many you have is suicide in a jungle.

Marksmanship are eastern counties Achilles heel

I say let China have Vietnam.
Massive bombing and troops from America and other countries
could not hold onto Vietnam.
I bet the people are digging the tunnels again.
and will new techniques and tools.
I would bet you CIA will give Lots of weapons to Vietnam.
its back door fighting.
China will just make a fool of its self.
and America will not let them win a war they could not.

its pretty safe to say the us will never get involved with vietnam ever agian.

china has one thing going for it if it comes to a war with vietnam

no liberals.

its a safe bet china will come out on top if it does come to war between them


Good let them expend their energy there then with the US. No one has ever come out on top with Vietnam the French tried the US tried and others. They just dig in and out last anyone, course China was thier secret ally when the US military was there. In fact I would not be surprised if this was CIA contrived to distract China's attention from the US.

really now the worlds largest airforce and the worlds largest standing army and trillions in yuan and resources abound.

china would win quite easily that is if they want to

with billions of mouths to feed war is the best population control measure ever devised even a war of attrition china would win.



do you really think so... just like america won really easily too. Give you war rattling a rest. In war there are no winners...

1. learn how to read

2, comparing two unique different political systems is a waste.

so it is ok for you to contrast different politcal systems but not ok for me to compare.. That makes about as much sense as the word dictionary appearing in a dictionary......
