Many Americans believe that we lost the war in Vietnam. We did not lose that war. Our government just quit paying for it. The Wall Street investors, munitions makers, military contractors, etc., felt they had made all the money that could be made out of that investment, so they simply stopped investing in it. When their balance sheets kept tipping into liability, that was it.
Human lives mean nothing to those people. They only care about the almighty dollar and how much money can be made off their investments. At the expense of over 58,000 Americans killed, all of the wounded that came out of that war and countless Vietnamese lives, we just quit. What a crime against humanity!
