USSR? I know, officially they didn't go there, but in reality they did and their soldiers died there. So did soldiers and officers from other nations of the Warsaw Pact (example- Ryszard KukliƄski, although he survived).

I believe Russia supplied tanks and MIGs. Probably AK47s or their predecessors, and other things, esp intelligence. Remember, Communist China was younger, not as technological. This was a Cold War conflict.....all you heard from Republican politicians was the Domino Theory. They were certain all of Asia would go communistic if we did not keep South Vietnam non-communist.

I heard that from the Democrats as well...you know, JFK and LBJ really ramped up US involvement and it was DDE that kept our involvement minimal and Nixon/Ford that got us out.

Australia lost fewer than Arkansas. When you think of Vietnam, do you think of Arkansas?

This is a depressingly inarticulate way to express the argument against people remembering Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War.

I was also surprised. Australia's been one of the USA's staunchest military allies, joining in pretty much every war for the past 100 years with the US, even the unpopular ones like Vietnam and Iraq.

Possibly there were a lot of people who did the same thing I did: typed "Vietnam" and when it didn't work, thought that it was excluded from the start because it was the subject of the quiz. It's only a minute before the end, after trying every country in the vicinity and around the Pacific without finding the top 2 slots, that I remembered Vietnam was separated into two countries at the time.

It wasn't, really. South Vietnam was never recognized as anything but an American puppet regime.

Yea when I typed Vietnam and it didn't come up I thought it was excluded. Even tried Viet Cong thinking perhaps...

That's generally seen as a different war, The First Indochina war. What Americans consider the Vietnam War is the Second Indochina war (or American war for the Vietnamese).
