    USA and it’s allies left that they could take on the weaker South.

    I have a good friend who served on one of these in the delta. He doesn’t
    like to talk about it. Saw too much and wants it gone from his mind. I wish
    I could help him.

    This war was just another waste of time and lives. Period.

    USA was never pushed out… only France was.. the USA simply left and did a
    draw down over the years before leaving. the USA left late 1972, the South
    fell about 2-3 years later.

    You are exactly correct. It took the Vietnamese 1000 years to get rid of
    the Chinese, 90 years to get rid of the French, and General Giap told the
    US it would take 10 years to get rid of them. He was right.
