Why did the USA not lose the Vietnam War earlier?

0

The reason they didn’t win the war in Vietnam earlier is because they couldn’t face the fact that they were being beaten and so kept on fighting.

The war was lost because there was a decision on the part of the American people to lose the war. Until that decision was made, the war could go on indefinitely as a stalemate.

After pouring billions in resources, and priceless lives, the U.S. determined to withdraw. If they had poured all of their resources into winning the war, they would have – and thanks to the Lord above that they did not. It might have brought others into the conflict, and would have damaged the people of Viet Nam even further – an everlasting shame. The decision by Kennedy to enter Viet Nam, and the decision by Lyndon Johnson to lie about the Gulf of Tonkin incident to get Americans behind declaring war, were classic examples of arrogance and historical ignorance. Kublai Khan, heir of Genghis Khan, Emperor of China, failed several times to take Viet Nam – wiping out his entire naval fleet as a result. No one has done any better since. Strategically it made no sense, historically it was ill-advised, and morally it was and remains a source of shame. No amount of apologies will make up for what was done to the Vietnamese people, or make up for the soldiers lost on both sides.

The original excuse for the war was to block communism, but the casualties were too high, so the American cowards decided to draw out.

Once the military allowed the politicians to dictate the terms and strategy for the war. Similar to the poor decisions made in Korea when the politicians would not allow McAurthur to move north of the Yalu River in China. McAurthur could have successfully won the Korean conflict had it not been for this decision; made by politicians who were scared of China. If the American people are solidly aligned with the purpose then there is no enemy that the United States cannot defeat. Wars are lost at home, not on the battlefield.
