    However Canada wasn't in the Vietnam war despite whatever that link might say.
    Canada did not fight in the Vietnam War and diplomatically it was "officially non-belligerent".[1] The country's troop deployments to Vietnam were limited to a small number of national forces in 1973 to help enforce the Paris Peace Accords.
    Canada and the Vietnam War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you are talking about Canadians who went to the US to join their military and fight, yes that happened but it wasn't Canada doing it, it was individual Canadians fighting for the US military not the Canadian Government.

    And for that I am very thankful for. Although Ho Chi Minh had been dead for about ten years, he died back in 1969.
    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.

    That is so much BS.

    The Republicans in congress overwhelmingly opposed the US involvement in the Vietnam war.

    Nixon was elected to end it fast. And he did.

    Absolutely. The only end to the Vietnam war..er conflict was to do exactly what Richard Nixon did, declare victory and leave.

    Only the people in the defense and support industry won anything during Viet Nam. I'm sure a politician or two might have made out well too.

I would also include the United and the allied forces in Vietnam.
    That still bothers me if I think about it.

    Go to Vietnam today, it is one of the most intensely capitalist nations on earth. I've been all through the country a few times, this is not what Uncle Ho wanted... USA won....eventually
