We are sadly going to have to wait and see what happens, as the North Koreans just keep upping the stakes.

Kicked US arse for decades? Is that how liberal educators have rewritten history now? Truth is the policies of the Democratic party leadership including LBJ allowed N Vietnam to win the war.

Well probably according to Zach Galifanakis and his pro-american followers Hiroshima/NG wasn't crime against humanity, Vietnam didn't cause the US to loose trillions $ and ultimately loose their goal and of course: Only Putin can save America.

Don't rise to the bait, the US abandoned war in Vietnam mainly due to it's unpopularity back home, whilst militarily the US dropped more bombs on the place than were dropped in the whole of WW2 and the Vietnamese losses were massive in comparison with US losses.

Vietnam was a war the US shouldn't have really have become involved in, indeed Britain got out of Vietnam as soon as it could after WW2 and the French beat a hasty retreat from their former colony.

It also should be noted that the US has helped Europe immeasurable in the past and some Europeans would do well to both remember and respect that, whilst both the US and many European countries including the UK were involved in the initial Korean War.

This is however not comparable to anything since the Cuban Missile Crisis, and the US has little choice but to take threats of nuclear attacks on it's mainland seriously.

What are you even talking about? Yes Hiroshima and Nagasaki were atrocious, but other than the power of the bomb no different from many things that happened at the time. Both the allies and Nazi's committed crimes against civilians.

The US largely lost in Vietnam because of disengagement.

I don't know what your problem is with so many countries, the US is a great place even Nina Dobrev lives there.

She is Canandian (not American) of some Eastern European heritage, plus a random celebrity isn't like saying: Even Dalai Lama lives there.

Funny how you assume that poster is from the U.S.

If the Vietnam war was a loss than we have a strange way of determining losses in war.
