The United States won every war we have been involved in except the Vietnam War.

they felt that it was important for the united states to win because of communisim and they wanted all of it gone.

The Vietnam war was the turning point in the Cold War. The United States realized that there military wasn't strong enough to win and they needed a better technique. The Vietnam war made people have doubts about the USA winning the cold war.

Two: The Confederate States of America lost to the United States of America & America did not win its war against North Vietnam. American officials and some citizens prefer to use the terms, "didn't win the Vietnam War" opposed to stating, "lost the war." Technically we were not part of the vietnam, but yes we did lose. Also during the russian revolution we lost.

Well, after the First IndoChina War, Vietnam was split into two countries, North and South. North Vietnam were communists, while south was not. Many people believed in the Domino Theory, or the belief that once Vietnam fell into communism, the rest of SouthEast Asia will asl well. The Vietnam War was considered the Second IndoChina War. The Viet Cong were rebels in South Vietnam and they supported communism as well as the North. The United States supported South Vietnam. Viet Cong would hide in villages in the South which made it hard for the US to win. A saying was "I'd risk 10 of my men for one of yours [United States], but we will still win" The United States failed to win the war, which means SOuth Vietnam fell into communist North.

They weren't allowed to invade the north Vietnam and they had to get approval from the Pentagon to do anything. They'd tried to micro manage the war and wouldn't let the generals do there job

I'm sorry to tell you this, but the US did not win the Viet Nam war.

The United States lost the will to continue fighting. The Vietnamese, who were defending their own country, were willing to fight forever. The North Vietnamese saw no distinction between North and South Vietnam. Ed Vietnam War Veteran 1968-69

The answer to how many battles the United States army won in the Vietnam War is controversial. The Vietnam war was a political war that was more of an insurgency with many little ambushes and almost no actual defined battles. The most widely accepted belief about the Vietnam war is that no one won or lost.

Nukes! Had it not been for the threat of nuclear war (called the cold war) North Vietnam would've been invaded and taken by the firepower of the United States; just as Germany and Japan had been defeated in WWII.

When the United states went to war with Vietnam, the President in that time should of made sure that they would win. President Nixon just sent a lot troops and soldiers not knowing what he was getting America into.

it helped them run around places without the aponnent seeing so they could win the war against the united states and they did win the war against the united states

Losses were to high, couldn't win it, so the US left.

During the Cold War, many believed that limiting the spread of Communism was necessary for the security of the United States and its allies.

For North Vietnam to win the war; which they did.

The USA at the time believed in the so-called Domino Theory: if one country would fall to Communism, the surrounding countries would be sure to follow.

No. The U.S. lost the Vietnam War, as the communist North Vietnam succeeded in taking over South Vietnam (which the U.S. was allied with), and united the country as one Vietnam.

The involvement of the United States in the Vietnam War was a reaction to the expansion of proxy communist countries and groups sponsored by the Soviet Union. During the Cold War the United States and its allies fought worldwide, small scale conflicts with the Soviet Union and its allies. After the French government withdrew from Vietnam, the United States became involved to prevent a "domino effect" of communist takeovers of the countries in Southeast Asia. Given that there was no plan to defeat the communists but to only contain them, this lead to military and political decisions which could not affect a winning result. As the length and cost of the Vietnam War grew, this caused political and social pressure to build within the United States. This pressure was directed in two ways: either to win the war or end the war. Given the lack of political will to win the war, President Richard Nixon forced the North Vietnamese government to accept a peace agreement which allowed the United States to withdraw from the conflict. Given that the political and military goals were not achieved by the United States, this caused a loss of confidence in the ability of the country to successfully prosecute a war and the ability of the political classes to support the effort. Socially, the Vietnam War was also highly divisive to the american people. Today, the social effects can still be seen in the debate surrounding the war in Iraq.

For North Vietnam to win the war; which they did.

Yes. Vietnam was a French colony. They lost a Vietnam War and were thrown out of Vietnam before America tried to win a war in Vietnam. America also lost a Vietnam War.

North Vietnam won South Vietnam by conquering it.

President Johnson believed in the domino theory. He feared a communist takeover in Southeast Asia if the United States left Vietnam. Any other outcome than victory would be an embarrassment.

The North won in April of '75.
