• Yes america was wrong

    America always believes they have the moral high ground in every war we put ourselves. People shot themselves in the foot(Gregg Allman) so they wouldn't have to go to Vietnam. Not every protester was a drugged-out hippie. Some protesters realized the futility of U. S Intervention. The draft and the way it was done is also stupid. The poor boys should have been sent last. Vietnam was a crock of nastiness before we even got involved. The French realilized this long before us.

  • Support for the Vietnam war was support for western imperialism.

    Stopping the spread of communism is often cited as the reason that this war was just, But brief investigations of the facts show that political ideology was only a sidenote in the greater story of an oppressed people that had suffered rule by western powers which barred them freedom of movement and self-determination. If France had provided an avenue for independence through democratic means at the end of WWII, As opposed to trying to hold Indochina as a possession Ho Chi Minh would have never been able to win national consensus, As hostility from previous disputes would have kept Chinese and Russian influence at bay. The U. S. Picked up this fight foolheartedly after they failed to help the French hold onto control even with their air support. We lost 58, 000 Men and killed over 2 Million people in south-east Asia, Because we were fooled into believing in manifest destiny and our right to the world.

  • Vietnam war is definitely a crime of the US

    Many Americans think the US government interfered in Vietnam to help liberate the country from the reign of Communism. But here's the thing. During their interference in Vietnam, The US army had killed so many innocent defenseless citizens, Which was absolutely unnecessary, Just like the nuclear bombs they threw directly to Japanese citizens. The My Lai Massacre is one typical example of this crime that I bet none of you have known, Have learnt of have heard of before, Because the government and the press always praised the war as a fight for justice. Https://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/My_Lai_Massacre
    and there is so much more than that. Don't believe anything you learn from the text book and from the press about any war of the US on other countries.

  • Yes they were wrong because now vietnam is poor and no time to repare

    This war needs to stop and other countrys need to stop what there doing and help each other.
    Not only vietnam is poor but other countries need more but if we don't do that you will see people starve to death. If we help others they will fight for once was theres and help other countries as well

  • Who asked us to help?

    We were not asked to help we were only stopping communism but we didn't know how bad it would get. It would be like arresting a man for walking into bank with a gun on his belt. For all you know he has a license to carry a gun and has it for self-defense. What if Britain came over and decided that Christianity was getting out of hand and fought a war to stop it? Then who would be good and who would be bad? You would say the US was good and Britain was bad. If Russia and Germany were to fight because Russia said that Germany had too many dairy products we would say Russia is bad and Germany was good. So yes, When the US would attack Vietnam just because we thought communism was too common and spreading or out of hand, I say US is bad and Vietnam good.

  • The US was wrong

    The war in Vietnam only resulted in deaths and destruction of towns. Many civilian lives were lost as a result of the war. The US had little or no business interfering with foreign affairs there. After Vietnam broke free from the grip of French imperialism, the United States should not have interfered.

  • Us vs Vietnam

    It wasn't not americas fight to fight. We lost so many. We were also wanting to kill all troops and not let anyone live. We also raided villages and burn't them to ashes killing innocent people and farmers. We burnt forests down and caused cancers and other health problems.It was not our fight

  • Yes, you were wrong, America

    First and foremost, I'm a Vietnamese. My mother's family was working for the South and my father's family, in contrast, working for the North. Of course, they met after the war. My step father was also a veteran who worked for the South. But even from my mother and my step dad, they still think America was wrong. You funded a tyranical and corrupted regime. T
    From what I learned and was told, and from my perspective, you guys were dead wrong.
    He South gorvement poured most of your money into naked bars and hands out, not for the war effort.
    And moreover, because we had had bad times with the French, the Japanese and teh Chinese and you guys were just yet another invader in the Vietnamese's minds at that time.
    Having said though, you guys are welcome here nowadays. We don't hold a grudge against you guys.
    Just be mindful when travelling here though, always buy stuff that has fixed price and be warned, the thievery rate here is high

  • Yes America was wrong to fight in Vietnam

    At the end of the day the end result leaves little doubt..The North Vietnamese ended up taking Saigon and America left in a rather embarrassing manner.All this talk about the domino effect is rubbish.If that were true North Vietnam winning or America leaving (which ever you prefer) would have confirmed the very fears of the people who lied to get the U.S involved in the first place.Did not happen.The 58,000 Americans who died in that war gave up their lives for nothing.

  • Khmer Rouge or Vietnam Rouge?

    If Viet Cong had came earlier and ruled longer, Vietnamese population would have experienced genocide, Too. Saving Vietnam is costly, But abandoning Vietnam would be devastating. Fortunately, Communism didn't last long in this world. Without intervention from China, Vietnam could have been saved at least like South Korea? Was American wrong to fight in Korea?

  • We had to stop communism.

    No, America was not wrong to fight in Vietnam, because the Domino Theory of communism had started to take shape. America had to stop communism before it spread to even more countries. There were also atrocities that the north was perpetuating against its own people. The United States needed to step in before it got any worse.

  • No, Vietnam was not a wrong war for America to fight in.

    I do not think that America was wrong to fight in Vietnam. I think that America knew that it had to fight in Vietnam to help fight against the spread of communism as well as help prevent the genocide of a group of people. While the decision may seem to have been a wrong one today, it was still just.

  • American was in the right to fight North Vietnam, but wrong in how they conducted the war

    The decision of the U.S. to conduct Vietnam as a police action rather than making the case for war was wrong, however, the threat of militaristic communism by North Vietnam deserved a military response and the U.S. was right to fight that war. Consider the difference between North and South Korea, if the U.S. had won in Vietnam, south Vietnam might have been a prosperous country as well.

  • No, the fighting was never the problem.

    Use of physical force to accomplish the political, economic and moral goals of a nation is neither right nor wrong. The true evil of the Vietnam War was in the failure, by design and by choice, to establish clear entry and exit conditions before initiating combat. While maintaining a constant, "no end in sight" conflict was very beneficial to the economy of the United States, it accomplished very little good politically for the nation. And worse, it created a deep split in the moral fabric of the country. The warfare itself was neutral--the leadership was what made for all that was "wrong" about the Vietnam action.
