War is never a good thing. In the end the ones who have the most death rates are the civs.

Can anyone in this thread honestly say that they have actually been in a war. Either as a soldier or as a war refugee.

No, but my parents and older cousins have been in a war and also been a refugee too. . .I can say it did leave scars that will never heal.

The war in Vietnam I believe can be call "the war over drug control" Seriously, "to fight communism" was just a front. . .what was really exchanging hands at the time was drugs. . .why do you think that more than 65 percent of soldiers who came back from the war had problems with it and alcohol?

The United States never officially declared war with Vietnam .

It was actually what is called a police action.

Thats right. War taints the soul. Even if you survive you become majorly screw up in the head. Post traumatic stress disorder leaves a war survivor unable to differentiate from reality and fantasy. You have constant nightmares of the past and have hallucinations during your regular activities. You'll never forget and you'll always suffer. People that haven't experienced something like that wont be able to relate and empathize with you. Then you become an outcast. Spurned by society.

While loss of civilian life is a terrible thing, the human race would get nowhere fast without warfare.


Loss of civilian life......What the hell do you think happens every day around the world? >_>

I don't get why people get so fucking worked up over other people dieing, I'm getting tired of the idealistic bullshit that I see everyday, yet the last part of your sentence was pretty true....Without war, we wouldn't of made so many technological advances. That just shows you how cowardly humans are, they put so much time in to protect themselves and kill each other. >_>

I totally agree with you. The draft took place at the time in America and so many American citizen lost their lives fighting at the whim of the government in protest of communism but then it is also that war that help our economy grow and prosper. . .Yet to call those soldiers not veterans of that "UNOFFICIAL" war is like a slap to their face and courage. I remember talking to one of the veterans in a nursing home and he still feels awful because when he came back home from all the terror there? Many of the American citizens treated him and his friends like dirt.

I think we did declare war with them. The government told us that Vietnam blew up two of our submarines, this was called the Gulf on Tonkin. However, most people don't know that the Gulf of Tonkin never happened. It was a false flagged attempt told by the government so America had an excuse to start war with the Vietnamese. So I'm pretty sure we did officially declare war on them, yet I'm not sure.
