9. Vietnam

9.1. Civil Rights

9.1.1. During Vietnam the US was fighting the North Vietnamese, in order to "contain communism" this war was very hard on the soldiers. Many was very proud when they came home from Vietnam because they had done their service to their county. Most Soldiers had a very hard time in Vietnam and because of that some got ptsd. The American population did not support the war, their was an anti war movment going on, and when the soldiers got home, instead of being welcome, they were booed and harassed. We can learn from this is that when the American population does not support a war they will look for someone to blame, but instead of blaming the people who started the war, they blamed the people who were either forced to go, or who wanted to help protect their country. In the future we should welcome back all soldiers no matter if we support the war or not, because they do not get to pick and chose what wars to fight.

9.2. Foreign Relations

9.2.1. During the Vietnam war, the US started the large scale bombing campaigns, on the Ho Chi Minh Trail and in North Vietnam. During this time many Civilians were being innocently slaughtered. Not only did this increase the amount of anti-war people in America, it also upset the Neighboring countries to Vietnam. In the end this brought North Vietnam into negotiations, but at what cost. We learned from this that bombing countries that had no part in the war is not effective and will upset said countries, and we also learned that bombing Civilians is also not a very good idea.

9.3. Foreign Relations

9.3.1. During the Vietnam war the citizens were fighting the US troops, theses citizens knew the layout of the land and were used to the conditions of Vietnam. They would dig bunkers that were very hard to find, and if found they were very hard to infiltrate. The lesson that was learned by this is that then you are fighting people in their country they will have an advantage because they know the land and climate, and we will have a disadvantage.
