    Except that China shares a border with Vietnam so getting supplies in was never a difficult task.

    Actually what they had was a common goal. We don't really disagree, but view things from slightly different vantage points.

    A lot of us talk a good game, but when given a choice to sacrifice something in a struggle or taking a lot of money and run, which do you think is the number one choice.

    South Vietnamese soldiers were killing American men just as the North was, we did not know who the enemy was, there was nothing to win in Vietnam our presidents knew it but destroyed many brave and innocent US servicemen with their lies. Africa is a continent not a country with many ethnic and religous differences and the West loves that. No unity there.

    The Vietnamese were supposed to be "killing American men"! :) That's the objective of war, preserve yourself and kill your enemies. I noticed you didn't say American soldiers. Are you under the impression that the Americans were unarmed civilian advisors? That's the lie that was initially told by the Euro-Americans. "We did not know who the enemy was", who is "we"? :( Apparently you identify with the Euro-Americans. The "many ethnic and religious differences" you write about, in a lot of cases were created by the invaders. Finally, every people on the planet have their differences for one reason or another, even though they belong to the same race and ethnic group. What do you think the American Revolutionary War, and the American Civil War were all about? Tribalism? What do you think European World Wars I and II were all about? Ethnic conflict? Sure it was! You can accept the European characterization that it was class warfare if you want. But tribal and ethnic conflict by any other name is still the same thing, WAR! ;)

    How polite, "the French faltered and the Americans stepped in". :) How about the French got their a-- kicked and so did the Americans! And so did the Japanese before the both of them! ;) Not only do we "view things from a slightly different vantage point", we have totally different interpretations of the facts. :( P.S. Al Sharpton says "we can have different opinions but we can't have different facts", and I agree. But I submit we CAN have different interpretation of those facts!:D
