Best Answer

The issue of US involvement in Vietnam was deeply divisive in America itself, perhaps more so than any other issue in the 20th century. American involvement was also very costly in terms of lives (American and Vietnamese) and achieved nothing worthwhile. Others will no doubt have different views on this.
