A map will do for now. A GPS... you need a little training to use those.

The stories of GIs freezing in the 30 degrees below zero temperature... you didn't hear about those in Vietnam!
One less person to make fun of Americans!

Argueably only the Chinese and the South Koreans won, due to after the Inchon landing the US (Except.. it was the UN) changed it's mission objectives from maintaining South Korea to unifying the peninsular.

Since so many people seem to reckon the US won the 1812 war against Britain.. One could almost argue that North Korea "won" using the same arguements. That said, after that war the US quickly became predominent wheras North Korea is being slowly strangled by international sanctions and the fact that south Korea is so successful.

Well how would you react if someone thought Scotland and Liechtenstein were the same?

The North Koreans... it wasn't so much about embargos or sanctions... after all they were supposed to be SELF SUFFICIENT. However it was always a lie, as was proven when the USSR fell and the supplies to keep North Korea alive went with it.
So really, North Korea preserving itself in its own form brought about its doom. Ironic really.

What I don't understand is how could someone who has spent 5 years in the royal navy not be able to tell the difference between SK and Vietnam.
