There shouldn't have been a "Vietnam War."

Opening Argument

With 58,000 dead, and failure to prevent Vietnam from being communist, we should have never been sticking our noses in Vietnam. Trump and many others had all rights to have avoided the draft to serve in the unjust, cruel, stupid, and pointless war.

  • The Vietnam War was not necessary. The US got involved in a war which may have been a civil war in that area. This caused many deaths, injuries, etc.

  • We should never engage in a war we don't have the will to win.  That said, coming to the aid of an ally is an admirable reason to go to war.

  • I saw the results for the last poll question. You guys are mean!

  • We should not have been involved in that war due to it possibly being a civil war in Vietnam. The war cost many lives and without US involvement, some injuries and deaths could have possibly been avoided.

    Korea was a civil war also.  Should we have stayed out of that as well?
