So, to complete my thought, Ho was an authentic Vietnamese nationalist who was Communist and was supported by China and Russia as part of the cold war.

By the time the US got into this mess, we were propping up a corrupt colonialist regime in the South, apparently out of mindless reflex.

Not a good strategic situation, regardless of how individual military exercises might have been done more competently.

And by the end our involvement would lead directly to the destabilization of Cambodia, the rise of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge, Year Zero and the killing fields. The whole affair was an epic level cluster fuck.
