I just can't believe americans are laughing while viewing these things that
decimated our troops

Author ihc1974 (1 year)
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.

Author joaopaulocataldi (1 year)
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..

Author TheRagingFoxhound (1 year)
South Korea was being overrun. The south Vietnamese were being forced to
assimilate by the north. We could not stand the idea of communism
spreading, even if opposition to it was not all that great. Today, Vietnam
is doing well. They would have been just fine without us interfering. There
is a big difference korea and vietnam.

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.

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 (1 year)
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.

They did what the Americans did in New Orleans during the War of 1812
against the British; a rag-tag army defeating a superior force with
intelligence and the will to fight. Technology is a poor substitute for the
will to fight.
