The French were fighting in Vietnam in 1950 not the US.
America didnt really lose the war. It was never America's war to lose.
we didn't lose Vietnam. We simply left when President Nixon went into office. We trained the south Vietnam people to fend for themselves and slowly took troops out, then when the two Vietnam's called a peace treaty for the new year celebration Tet north Vietnam issued several attacks on South Vietnam. So the side we were helping lost but truthfully we did not lose.
Vietnam war of course!
The communists were victorious in Vietnam.
How did the role the American media played in the Vietnam War.
ordering the bombing of North Vietnam during peace negotiations
because it was the americans and the fail at everything!
actually, we really werne't in the war we just helped out with the good freedom side of vietnam.
North Vietnam defeated South Vietnam on 30 April 1975 with a conventional tank & infantry attack.
The Americans lost the Vietnam War (1954-1975).
Did france loose the Vietnam war?
If Chuck Norris went to Vietnam, America would've won the war. His brother needn't had gone.
They intervened in the war. They did not lose, instead, the public was against the conflict so they pulled out. They never surrendered, so they did not lose.
After the battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954.
There were two Vietnams; North & South Vietnam. A country called Vietnam during the war didn't exist. 1. Couldn't use nukes 2. Couldn't invade North Vietnam 3. Couldn't isolate the movement of M/M into RVN (South Vietnam)
Couldn't stop the flow of men and material into the south.
General Jack Robinson (im not sure)
General Giap believed that the Tet offensive would cause the citizens and the Army of South Vietnam to lose confidence in their government.
The US didn't win it. Or...North Vietnam won the war. Either way is preferable to "losing the war" according to the many hard core historians.
yes we did lose the war in Vietnam when we were helping the South Vietnamese Army. If we have permission to engage the enemy in a firefight, then we won't lose at all.
America did not lose the Vietnam police action. In 1975 the South Vietnamese lost their civil war with North Vietnam two years after the American withdrawal. The North violated their Peace Treaty an invaded South Vietnam and were able to defeat the South Vietnamese militarily.
Vietnam showed the world that the US would sacrifice it's blood to stop the spread of communism. It also showed the world that it could lose a war.
The Americans didn't lose. They were unfamiliar with the territory of Vietnam and were not properly prepared. The terrains of the jungles were nothing like the landscape in the US. It was just a matter of unfamiliarity.
As he stated, he "...didn't want to be the first US president to lose a war..."
