Overall, I think the US lost the Vietnam War, even though they did their part...I think a lot of the reason why they lost was because of the media and all the people back in the states. They didn't support them in any way which is just plain crazy and stupid. When your countrys soldiers go to war, you need to support them in what they are doing. It's not their choice to go to the battlefield. It's our country's leader's choice. And it was kind of like the media and people in the states that pretty much blamed all of the brave soldiers for that choice. I think that's just plain wrong. So that's what I think....that a lot of the cause of the loss, was from the states.....discouraging the soldiers that had to go to Vietnam.
