The US was bombing North Vietnam, and the US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy, and US Air Force was in mutual combat with the North Vietnamese Army, Navy, and Air Force. The US is NOT bombing Iraq (as an enemy), and is NOT trying to destroy the Iraqi Army, Air Force, or Navy. Said another way: The US was at war with North Vietnam; the US is NOT at war with Iraq.
Vietman's army is stronger for sure. The reason is because US lost the Vietnamise war.
