How many and what kind of low level actions? Throwing out Johnson/Trump numbers won't fly, so show me your charts! Nobody believes the war wasn't lost, it's just that as long as there US troops in the Republic of Vietnam, the VC and NVA didn't win.
If you want to enlighten yourself somebody's put together a list of US tactical defeats at https://www.g2mil.com/lost_vietnam.htm
Hope this helps. I'm certainly not going to do any research for you.[/quote]
Does not help at all...
Isn't posting a link count as doing some research? If you want to be a cunt of a Johnson about it...
Cherry-picked narrative of 112 incidents, over almost a decade of direct involvement, does not count as many and Meyer - Tales of the American Empire - falls into the same body count/numbers issue that you whinged about.
