Yet another example of France fucking up and the US riding in to bail their sorry asses out. Unfortunately for them, it didn't work out as well as the World Wars and the US got a bloody nose. Statistically the war went relatively well for America, but gross political mismanagement and the mass media's attempts to force public opinion against the war crippled the military's efforts and America ultimately had to pull out. Basically, the Vietnam War was lost in America, not in Vietnam.
The USA could have easily won the Vietnam War by playing fast and hard, but worthless politicians kept them on such a tight leash they could only hope to tickle North Vietnam and only after being punched in the face. Or we could have returned de Gaulle's favor and told the damn frogs to fuck off in the beginning and spared ourselves the whole experience.
