    But in your opinion do you think it was a justified war?

    Again...actually, the South wanted us to help them stem the tide of a communist takeover.

    The only reason they both go ****ed over is because the playing field was evened. In regard to the Soviets--not the Russians--they were winning against the Mujas, until US intervention leveled the playing field.

    If you are so concerned about the Vietnamese why don't you get off your butt and go over there and doing something about it. You can easily fly into Vietnam and carry out a mission.
    Aside from an attempt at world domination, nothing.

    Yeah, well when you improperly enter a war for the wrong reasons throwing MORE lives away isn't the solution. Those 58,000 men "died for nothing" (probably an incorrect statement), but better than 75,000 men dying for nothing, nothing that is our problem, nothing which is our cause, nothing which is our charge. The lesson should have been "don't haphazardly sling our military around and get involved in engagements we shouldn't be in". But no one really wants to learn.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    At the time the scare was Communism engulfing that country.........That is the reason we entered that war under the United Nations......It was a good reason considering what was happening at the time......The thing that we went to war and did not try to win it sticks in every vets craw.........The blaming of the troops by you on the left sticks in our craw and always will.......You never served your country so you don't know what goes on...........We don't set the policy. We just follow the orders of the Cfr in Chief......Get that through your thick skull....
