what some of the tunnels and traps looked like in vietnam


Author mamobster1500 (10 months)
I'm baffled at all of the people criticizing the VC.What were they supposed
to do exactly? They had inferior firepower, lacked air support, and
artillery. Of course they are going to do whatever it takes to survive.

Before you go around saying that what they did was dirty, consider this

> The U.S. dropped more bombs on Vietnam than the entire western front of
> Napalm and agent orange which still has affected the population to this
> We went into their country... Even the South Vietnamese (Our allies) saw
us as oppressors after some point.

they put mice under it which poisons other soldiers around him as well? Can

The Vietcongs were very smart setting up bobby traps. They took many
American lives. We were not ready for a guerrilla warfare. God Bless the
Vietnam Veterans who went through hell.

Author ihc1974 (2 years)
Yeah tens of thousands of South Vietnamese boarded rickety watercraft and
sailed out to sea rather than be "liberated" by the Communists. Communist
Gov'ts, through the course of the 20th century killed 100 MILLION of their
own citizens for various reasons, some simply because it was inconvenient
to feed them. So don't tell me about capitalism "enslaving" people. You
have access to the internet look at what REALLY happened.

in my opinion both sides were damn brave but the us had more complicated
weapons and lesser training.. the vietcong i think didnt have any training
at all but they had simpler weapons and as much effective..

Clever little bastards who lived on a handful of rice and berries and
pushed their ordnance to the battle on push bikes along animal trails. And
they beat the most mechanized army of the richest nation on earth. Respect
is due to the superior opponent.

@NewSoviet507 U.S helped S.Vietnam control their country (keep them safe
and a way from communism),...They supported S.Vietnam to industrialize and
modernize, like i said. They didn't control S.Vietnam, because S.Vietnam
has a president. So South Vietnamese can solve internal problems by their
own. Sorry if it doesn't make sense...

I would not think that they were better than we were. We lost about 60k
soilders including french troops maybe total about 100k at the most. The
vietnamese lost over 2 million soldiers not including civilians. If the war
had lasted long enough and americans had used more brutal techniques we
would have won simply by the fact that we killed 20 vietnamese for every
one we lost.

I was unlucky enough to study VC booby traps in field. What they are not
mentioning is the fact that the bungy tips were dipped in shit and dried.
It was very effective. But the purpose of war is to our terrorize your
enemy. Should we be upset that they were better at it than we were? What we
should be upset with were and are the lies of our government. This was not
about the spread of communism but the end of colonialism.

Since you're country is communist,what do you notice that is different from
capitalist countries? By the way,congratulations on unifying your Vietnam
from the Americans.You guys fought alone outnumbered by many allies and
still got your own land back.

Author 529wes (2 years)
Viet Nam is still a totalitarian state and is now apparently emulating Red
China. That said they would probably like us for an ally to help counter
China's growing power. Hind sight is easy and like I said we don't know
what would have happened had N Viet Nam been able to run unopposed through
Laos and S Viet Nam in the early 60's. Conceivably we could have been
fighting that war in Thailand at a later date.
