The Vietnam war remains one of the most brutal and terrible wars in history.
An example of America jumping into an internal conflict that was happening within Vietnam, taking sides in the conflict, and having to face the consequences for a decade.
The arguments and justification for this were outlined as part of an overall plan of "containment" towards the threat of Communism.
Without going into a long drawn-out analysis of the conflict, I just want to ask a simple question: Was the Vietnam War worth fighting?
When you look at the casualties (millions), the terrible war crimes committed, the lives broken and lost, the impact it had on Americans - was all this a worthy price to pay for our goals in that conflict?
