    No, you win war by doing what it takes to achieve your objectives.
    And, the objective is to do more damage to the enemy than he can do to you. Are you familiar with World War 2?

    Wrong. We won because we had the will to win.

    And, because we destroyed the enemy's will to resist. How did we do that? By doing more damage to the enemy than the enemy did to us.

    German military deaths: 4.3 to 5.5 million
    Japanese military deaths: 2.12 million

    Russian civilian deaths: 7 to 12 million
    German civilian deaths: 1.1 million
    Japanese civilian deaths 0.5 million

    During Tet, The Viet Cong was destroyed and Tet was a massive failure. The commies didn't achieve one single objective.

    1.)The whole list is flawed because of your opinion?
    2.)You know when Saigon fell correct? In 1975. You know when the Viet Cong dissolved? In 1976. You know why? The war was over and the country was united under another government. They won and became part of a united Vietnam.
