Re: Vietnam War

By "tougher," I meant that Giap was willing to accept a loss rate of 10:1 and basically grind down the US military till it became politically impossible to fight any longer. Throwing away their own soldiers lives to wear down an enemy is a very coldblooded calculation that Asian generals have often made. Which leads to the maxim: Don't get involved in a land war in Asia.
