is this the most embarrassing military failure in history?

Vietnam was worse

Hey you get out of here with that. Vietnam was a major victory for the us because the sovietnam dictatorship that was importing zyclonb into the brains of our children via kang8 gang was destroyed during the official blackout of the kanium battle.

>>35150272
I've heard vets and some armchair generals call it a "stalemate" but I've yet to meet someone who can make the mental gymnastics that vietnam was an American victory.

IMO, Vietnam and the Soviet defeat in Afghanistan are both equally embarrassing. Maybe a bit more embarrassing for the Soviets, but it's pretty close.

This retardation again.

The US forced the North Vietnamese to sign a peace treaty. War over. Everyone go home.

The North Vietnamese then break said treaty well over a year after the US had left.

This is history, you chucklefuck. It's what actually happened.

The Paris Peace Accords left the NVA in charge of a full third of South Vietnam.

The fighting didn't even slow down, US troops left in the middle of the shooting.

President Thieu had to be threatened with a total cessation of US aid before he'd sign the treaty.

Nixon and Kissenger were caught on the White House tapes discussing the need for a "reasonable interval" of 18 to 24 months before South Vietnam collapsed; exactly what happened.

Nixon let 22,000 Americans die just so he could blame the defeat on Democrats, and suckers like you lap it up.

Funny, because the Tet Offensive was actually a pretty big failure for the North. What really hurt the US was the liberal press turning it into some sort if calamity in the news. The NVA actually got stomped pretty good in any open engagement they had against US troops.

No, the Tiger of Panjshir was a brilliant tactician, was able to marshall his forces effectively, was able to manage his civilian populations respectfully and peacefully, and he had intense support from the united states after the CIA finally connected past Pakistan. There is no embarrassment in defeat by a capable enemy.

The foundation for claims of US military successes until Tet was their control of South Vietnam territory and ability to prevent insurgent activities. Tet showed that the US military has been lying.

>The NVA actually got stomped pretty good in any open engagement they had against US troops.

Body count is an entirely irrelevant metric of success and the US military has also been documented to lie about that as well.

From the military point of view it was a success. By the time of withdrawal Soviets controlled every major route and city. Politically thought it was a huge flop.

You realize that bunch of Ethiopians fucked Italians ass so hard that they had to send their best armoured units to fight them?

And then they lost bunch of CV-3/33 because they were crushed by rocks thrown on them from the cliffs or blinded by throwing sand at driver port, lured to the area covered by dry bushes and then destroyed by setting the bushes on fire?

congratulations to show that the US was exaggerating their claims you have now sacrificed the entirety of the fighting strength of the vietcong, as well as the cream of the crop NVA, as well as losing most of the territory you previously had defacto control of, all to show that the US was lying.

Great victory that one. Man I hope you become a general of an army that fights against the US. It'll make it a war on easy mode.

>>35153040
hahaha, no. At the time of withdrawl, the soviets had effectively ceded all territory outside of the major cities. 4 years PRIOR to withdrawl, yeah it was looking great from a military standpoint, but then the US started supplying the enemy with weapons...
