Vietnam Delusions: No North Vietnamese Fought

[Note: This is a subpost linked to by Vietnam, Israel and the Left’s Delusional Narratives. Feel free to comment but the post might not make much sense without the parent post’s context.]

Delusion: There were no North Vietnamese army units operating in either South Vietnam or Cambodia.

Reality:In order to maintain the delusion that the war was a popular uprising against imperialists, the “peace” movement could not admit that the war post-1968 was one of invasion from the outside. They labeled as lies any US assertions of invasion. Post-Cold War evidence proved the “peace” movement conclusively wrong. Post-Tet, all major combat was carried out by regular units of the North Vietnamese army.

  1. This is another major failure of the mass media. It was and remains the job of the mass media to accurately report the facts. The “peace” movement would never have continued this big lie if they had been consistently called on it by the mass media.
