There was a puppet government who was not communist... not chosen by
This government was NOT democratic, and the "South Vietnam" as a state
did exist only because foreign countries, like USA, did NOT want the
Vietnam to be entirely ruled by communists.
It's all a matter of ideological battle.
2=No Russia isn't Communist. It's actually now illegal to be Communist
in Russia. Shows what you fucking know. 3=Do you even actually know what
Communism is? Do you have any idea who Marx is? Who Lenin is? What happened
in Red October? Obviously you fucking don't.4=That's just America's answer
to everything though. "Liberate" everything in fucking sight, whether it
wants liberating or not. The amount of bloodshed USA has caused in just 200
years is like no other nation on the planet, and the sick thing is some of
your countrymen celebrate that. 5=Hahaha. USA won Iraq? What did you win?
The middle-east hate your country more than ever. Al-Qaeda bombed the WTC,
so your government went in a bombed 100,000s of innocent civilians and
children for oil. 6=Nothing can be said here that hasn't already been said.
It's great how hind site gives 20/20 vision, the important thing is to
learn from from past, many people in leadership rolls from presidents to
generals have not. 7=yeah my uncle was up in I corps near the dmz in 67 and
68. its not napalm, but he came in contact with agent orange and still has
medical problems to this day 8=Napalm was pretty nasty, both the
Vietnamese(even the ones being born today) and the GI's are suffering from
cancer of all sorts, birth defects,etc. - even from the GIs who just served
there. the children of the GI's and the Vietnamese are also suffering from
all sorts of congenital problems. 9=Just got back from Vietnam, amazing
country with great people. Such a shame what happened there, yet they show
little bitterness towards Americans. Maybe you guys should actually visit
these places and speak to the people before bitching about it on youtube and
simply quoting wikipedia articles. 10=moron? you call me liar? this is not
what the USAirforce has done? (not only to Hue but Hanoi and other citys as
well) large parts of Vietnam was market as "Killing Boxes" in the US-Army
maps.this means anyone in these areas has to be killed no matter who and why
there. the Massacre of My Lai was not a single incident. it happen hundred
times (but without western journalists) . the US Army act like the SS and
SD in Belorussia 1941. 11=every war is pointless after WW2. But super power
like U.S. needs to show muscles every decade.. thats why we big war every 10
years now 12=its very strange to see this murderers crying. when the US
B52 fleet bombarded the City of Hue at Night 40.000 Civilians die in just 1
hour. it would be nice to see someone bombarding Los Angeles and killing 8 %
of the population. an the result : corpses of little children on the streets
torn apart in pieces. the whole city burning. woman screaming all around.
blood run in rivers. legs arms and heads everywhere... 13=I served two
tours in Iraq. I'm not entirely anti-war (I believe in grown men standing up
in defense of their families, homes, civilization etc) but as it stands
right now there's nothing in the USA worth defending. What did I fight for?
I fought for others to have the right to get EBT cards while my wife and I
work hard to put food on the table. I fought to get others a Sec 8 voucher
so they can live in a bigger house than me while I struggle to pay rent. I
fought for corrupt.....(1) 14=ye well i really dont think that humour comes
into a serious subject such as this documentary sorry if im being frank but
if you want to comment dont forget that this ain't really a comedy
15=vietnamesenachos is infact correct vietnam was not infact won on the
battle field but on the tv screens in the homes of ordinary americans. Also
I dont think the Americans lost alot or any firefights waht so ever but as
we have seen in this documentary they certainlay lost many lives in them. In
the end it wasn't uo to losing or winning the firefight. As for the
viatnamese it was about hit andrun techniques to destroy american moral.
