Defeat US in Vietnam

vietnam war

25 years ago, the last US troops ignominiously evacuated from Vietnam. After 14 years of American military invasion and over 2 million Vietnamese dead, 58,000 American dead and 300,000 wounded, the Vietnam War was over .The United State invaded Vietnam on the pretext of struggle against Communism and this time failed to achieve its goal too. The United States began to send troops to Vietnam, during the following 25-year period, the ensuing war would create some of the strongest tensions in US history. Almost 3 million US men and women were sent thousands of miles to fight for what has been a questionable cause. In this war US forces dropped about 2.5 million tons of bombs on Vietnamese, killing hundreds of thousands without coming up with any reason for the war. During the war US  used the chemical weapons and many innocent civil people were victims of US chemical bombs. Moreover, large-scale use of Napalm bombs by US forces burned millions of hectares of forests in Vietnam, inflicting a huge blow to the environment and people of that country.The American savageries in Vietnam, viewed against backdrop of claims about human rights and its supporting of freedom!
