Why U.S. Military Was Defeated in Vietnam (well worth watching)

Understanding of the US military-industrial process shown in this 1987 interview with sociologist Bill Gibson. Posted by Michael S. Rozeff at lewrockwell.com

Gibson’s discussion of the attitudes and ignorance of the U.S. military and the American people during the Vietnam war has major parallels to America’s recent engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan. Indeed, in an important sense, Gibson forecast that these wars would occur.

This is an approximately one hour and a half interview over 10 you tube clips, but is must viewing. Find the time to watch all the clips, you will have a bunch better understanding of the Vietnam War, the war in Iraq and the Afghan war and you will learn why U.S. technical war superiority just can’t seem to defeat “primitives”.
