I expected an argument in that article but there wasn't one. Vietnam was another example of the US overstepping the mark. For once they got their arses handed to them. We have the Vietnamese to thank for giving the US a valuable lessons: you're not invincible.

I don't think the debt is owed to them because the war was right, I think it is owed to them because they fought something their superiors told them too, laid down their lives and lost family. While I don't support the war, I do support the soldiers. If that makes sense. I feel bad that they witnessed and were a part of such atrocity, only to come home and find out their fellow Americans were disgusted at and condemned them for following orders.
You owe a huge debt to the South Vietnamese people you backward American imbeciles. They wanted a Communist government and instead you forced a hideously corrupt puppet government onto them, carpet bombed their country, chemically destroyed their crops and set fire to their villages. The Vietnam War was one of the great American atrocities of the 20th century.

- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
