    It was smaller than I thought it would be. Maybe it's just me?

    I have to see it in a post to give my opinion on it.

    They didn't have it because the people didn't have it. That's why they were voted in for after all. And technically, they did finish the war, they just didn't win it.

    And that's what the Vietnamese did. They outlasted us and hit us where it hurts the most: at home not with physical violence but with their gorilla war tactics.

    Well, i guess that's what happen when you can't produce results effectively as well as in a timely manner.

    The case New York Times vs. U. S. certainly didn't help either. Honestly, there really wasn't anyway we were going to win that war. Weren't we using regular war tactics (Sending in troops to fight directly) and getting our ass handed to us because of the environment? The same thing that is happening right now in Asia.

    Well, once word got out of what was really happening out the in Vietnam, I wouldn't have been surprised if the support for the war went down. Nobody likes to fight a battle that involves killing innocent people.

    Indeed. Heh.

    That wasn't the tragedy, per se. Read "An American Amnesia" by Bruce Herschensohn, as he pinpoints what really happened with the war. The military won it, as the Paris Accords were our victory. But, there was a election post Nixon's impeachment, the new Congress (who were anti-war Democrats) defunded our efforts and wanted us out immediately. It was all about the defunding.

    That's why we lost, and we, as a culture, instantly forgot it. I'll address the effects of such and other fun tidbits, after you process what I said. You asked, so here you go. I didn't want to be political, but that's where the loss was originally from.
