    It's a shame we didn't spend all that money and effort to improve life in America. The tail is wagging the dog. As long as the military industrial political complex is making money, who cares if it's moral or if we "win." Delivering shareholder value.

    The munitions (cluster bombs) had failure rates of up to 40%.  Virtually none used during Vietnam could "neutralize" or self destruct.  Loas, Cambodia, and large sections of Vietnam have hundreds of thousands of these UXB bomblets, that kill and maim 40 years after the war ended.  Fuck the USA.

    but all those "high tech gadgets" still USELESS, because Viet Nam DEFEATED the US, military and politically, only Rambos can't accept reality.

    Yesteryear the Vietnam War was fought to prevent the spread of Communism. Today, the politicians turn a blind eye as America jobs are GIVEN TO THE COMMUNIST CHINESE !!! When you destroy America and help the Communist Chinese. What does that make you ?

    I'd like to see a documentary film on "Operation Eldest Son" about US special forces sabotaging N Vietnamese ammunition.

    The commentator clearly says that the sensors send a signal (when activated by novement or sound) to a manned or unmanned aircraft monitoring the fields. Did the US Air Force have unmanned aircraft already then? 
    Does anyone of you guys have some tips on where I should look to know more about official and unofficial information on the technology U.S Air Force had at that time? Thank you from Norway, 🙂

    R Chapo, thanks for your opinion but in any war since 1776 the U.S.A. has defeated 99% on our enemies. At least this "loss" was to a strong and battle tested force. I'm sure whatever country you are a follower of has a much worst winner record. Good luck to you R Chapo you part a the sad few.

    U.s gits got yr ass kicked again, great to see how terrified yr so called military is in real combat, beaten again by third world country. Don't the U.s government ever get sick of losing war after war. Hail Vietnam, Hail Cuba, Hail Korea long live the Freedom Fighters of the world..
    ps real footage is avalible to watch just not in united states of freedom.
    Sarcasm don't work on utube. Gotta try….

    Love watching training / PR films like this so many years after-the-fact. 

    There are so many reasons the North should have gone down in defeat yet Ho found a way to convince over 1 million young men to die for his dream.
