    What is it we wanted to be doing there in the first place? What were the goals? That's the issue. We had no clear goal, just a platitude about "fighting Communism".
    We went under the UN and many countries participated..... The object was to stop the spread of Communism.

    we could have won easily but the Democrats would not let us do that.

    You mean if the Democrat president, Lyndon Johnson hadn't sent half a million troops over there?

    I like the 2 votes for Canada. Seeing as they weren't in Vietnam I guess you could say that yup they were the big winners

    I have voted the Vietnamese. The goal of their war was to reunite Vietnam and it was achieved.
    I would say the North Vietnamese and their allies the USSR and China. Who lost, the South Vietnamese to include the 2 million South Vietnamese who were killed or died in the North Vietnamese re-education camps and fleeing Vietnam by boat. The Cambodians to include 2-3 million Camobidans who were either killed or died at the hands of Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge along with another 500,000 Laotians who were also killed by the PL to include the attempted extermination of the Hmong tribe of Northern Laos particularly around the PDJ. I would also include the United and the allied forces in Vietnam.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Re: Who won the Vietnam War?

    America won most of the battles

    Vietnam won the war

    America accomplished its ultimate objective (the death of Soviet communism)

    And now we have a new dynamic to deal with in Asia, namely Chinese communism.

    Re: Who won the Vietnam War?

    The more interesting question to me: if the USA had won the Vietnam War outright, in what way would Asia be different today? In what way would China be different?
