  • What an incredible waste of tax payer money and lives.
    The only true war ever won with bombs, bullets and men...WW2

    • @porpoisecalls34 Apparently you've never heard of WWI,, the war to end all wars.. the Napoleonic wars,, Korean War, cripes,!

    • @porpoisecalls34 I think most people only have WW2 as a reference so they think the answer to every problem is to bomb the shit out of a country and if it doesn't work it's because we didn't drop enough bombs.

    • @porpoisecalls34 Even WW2 wasn't a total victory... We didn't take care of the "commie problem" right then and there, which lead to problems in Vietnam, Korea, Cuba, Germany, Eastern Europe (to name a few) and as a consequence Russia is even today lead by a sadistic fascist dictator.

  • Total waste, another stupid globalist war.
    But I have to ask, Liberals keep telling me Muslims commit mass murder (suicide bombings, terrorist attacks, torture, beheaddings etc.) because we "bombed them" but we slaughtered over 2 MILLION Vietnamese peasants and I've never seen a VC suicide bombing in the USA or an NVA extremist group calling for the death of the great Satan USA.
    Perhaps Islam is NOT the religion of peace? Hmmmmmmmm.

      bombing the shit out of yellow tree dwellers for however many years... causing death and destruction.... only to walk away in defeat.

      That's war crimes.

  • And yet we still lost miserably. What a waste of life over fucking nothing. But as long as it satisfies the war hungry right wing, fuck it right? Especially when they decide to profit from conflicts. Keep investing in the defense industry you right wing fuck sticks. The young will do the dying for you.

  • What a waste. If only Kennedy had lived, he would have never escalated the war in Vietnam. The only beneficiaries were the military industrial complex(The Johnsons made millions off of Bell helicopter stock)
    I followed the war from a young boy to a teen, watching Walter Cronkite give the daily body counts....and it was a sad day for me when Saigon fell, realizing what a total waste this senseless war had been.

    • @RedTory it was a period where the commies were trying to spread their ideology throughout Asia , being that there are so many of them ..we had to make a stand , unfortunately fighting one group of Asians within the group of Asians that were our allies was not so easy without major collateral , from all sides , the media, the terrorists , the locals , the people back home , and even the soldiers that saw it fruitless ...made it difficult to say the least.

      It started with North Korea, but Vietnam was the first U.S. war/military action/whatever you wanna call it that was ran by politicians and opinion polls. It's only gotten worse since then. Tough to beat an enemy with one hand tied behind your back. That's what made it a waste.

    • @Juujigun How could the Americans win without a huge number of troops, and without invading the North, which would have then eventually involved China(and possibly the USSR) as it did in North Korea? It was impossible. The Vietnamese simply would have retreated to the jungle and continued a guerilla war. Without the support of the countryfolk, you would never have been able to defeat them, even with all the men and materiel you threw at them. These were not poorly trained fighters in open deser More..

    • @GIJoe yes , they want it bc those that start it initially will get the rewards , those that promote it will also get a piece , and those that supported will get shit for the most part,
      as for the rest of us , if they win, we'll die fighting .,but
      it's still better than sucking shit like the supporters .
      But let's be honest , they will not get that far , as long as the right people wake up.

      Are we getting our asses handed to us in Afghanistan? Last time I checked, 10 years ago, we were just sort sitting around. Every now and again Taliban pokes their heads out of their caves to get smoked while trying to plant a roadside bomb.

      I guess waiting for us to get bored and go away = winning.

      It has been literally over a year since Ive even heard the word "Afghanistan" cross the lips of the msm

    • @captainzero the US policy of building forts and chasing Apache-like Taliban into the mountains has cost taxpayers a TRILLION dollars of unpaid national debt and 16 years later those forts still stand, a triumphant legacy to freedom, protecting Americans from invasion by the Taliban atop their swimming camels

      Truth is, the US can't figure out how to extricate its remaining troops without being destroyed on the runways..unlike the Vietnamese which ALLOWED us to leave in disgrace

Which is why I support the USA and defend it when people criticise things like gun laws a make out Americans must be fools. That said. I still think due to politics, separate to this, the USA has entered more than one war illegally. Vietnam and Iraq are two I don't think were legal or required. By the way Australia and the Netherlands were fighting WW2 before the USA entered. The USA needs allies more than yo More..
