With North Vietnam (not Vietnam; Vietnam was created after the war). No, the US did not win the war.
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 was due the lose of public faith in America also that they were not determined to win the war, and the rising cost of the war.Big protests from the hippie's and if they were chosen then they proved to be an inadequate soldier's
Vietnam was a war of body counts. A war of attrition. Which side killed the most men, would win the war.
US Commanders in Chiefs (US Presidents) Eisenhower, Kennedy, LBJ, Nixon, and Ford were all WWII veterans. US Generals Harkins, Westmoreland, Abrams, and Curtis LeMay were all WWII veterans. Vietnam was fought by WWII veterans; US firepower won WWII and US firepower and techniques would win the Vietnam war too! That was how the Vietnam war was fought...to include carpet bombing.
Nothing could have caused the us to win this insane war.
North Vietnam won the war.
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 United States had been involved in Vietnam since the 1950's and was part of the philosophy that communism must be contained in Southeast Asia. Kennedy had decided before his death he was going to look for a method to get out of Vietnam, but LBJ was from the "old school " war hawk philosophy of containment so he expanded the war and believed that the United States had to win to stop communism.
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"...as 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.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but the US did not win the Viet Nam war.
my answer for Apex was: He feared a Communist takeover in Southeast Asia if the United States left Vietnam :) have a great day guys!
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
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.
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.
