Paladin posted a topic in Tell Us!Talk about a superficial look at a very complex topic! Wow! All of the reasons why the US did not achieve victory in Vietnam are political. The most important take-aways from this conflict were: don't permit civilians to dictate military/naval strategy and TTP and ALWAYS have an exit strategy. The most enduring effect of this conflict was that a generation of US military leaders found out how NOT to wage war, as was demonstrated in 1991.
I feel we have no need to to discuss Jane Fonda. She had every right to speak her mind during the Vietnam War, but in going to the North and still speaking against the U.S., to me, sits right in the definition of treason. Her "apology" of 40 years too late and her statement "my 2 minutes lapse of insanity..." was far longer than that - she had years to come to her senses! I never saw another one of her movies since those days.
