AHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA Yep, typical propagandist, only tell half the story.
The Chinese military involvement was limited to military advisors, AA units and some engineering battalions.

The CIA had estimated there were about 15,000 Chinese serving in Vietnam in advisory, technical and garrison capacities, NOT as combat troops.

In fact nowhere does it say that Chinese soldiers fought as combat troops in Vietnam.

according to new surveys, canada has the most number of gays per 100,000 in the world. this explains why they just have a picture of their butt on their drivers license. and the strange thing is people can recoignise them by their butt.

big mouth talker...

just making a point... since most people on your side talk about kill ratios...

like the Korean war forgetting that other troops died in the Korean war too..

and how using kill ratios is a poor metric when it comes to war...like the Vietnam war

.
.

Additionally the Chinese anti-aircraft artillery troops, peaking at a total of 17 divisions and 150,000 men in 1967, would claim credit for downing 1,707 U.S. aircraft over North Vietnam.

The reason the air in Beijing smells bad is because they've taken all your industry. You're left with a hollow economy that could collapse in on itself at any time.

All it takes, is a new administration to put forth business friendly policies and new industry would start up in America. Contrary to what your political philosophies lend you to believe it's not a finite resource, that's there's only so much of. <-o

Soooo basically 150,000 REMFs. You left out the part where none of the Chinese troops were used south of the 21st parallel.
Then the numbers game. It took 150,000 Chinese to shoot down 1700-3400 pilots. Hell, that was an average week for the Germans in WW2 sans the technology.

Now, of the number shot down, 110 were choppers which means they weren't brought down by Chinese manned SAMs. Considering the US flew 5.25 million sorties over North and South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, we can also assume other combat losses weren't Chinese inflicted. On top of that, it's a loss ratio of approximately 0.4 per 1000 sorties. Compare that to the horrendous losses in WW2 where the USAAF had a loss ratio of 9.7/1000 sorties.

The US would take a 0.4/1000 loss ratio every day of the week and 3 times on Sunday.

still dosent change the fact that the Chinese were involved in the conflict... you just like to pretend american never bombed North of the 21st parallel....

and those Chinese troops wouldnt specifically be sitting ducks...for retaliatory strikes..

A Wild Weasel was an aircraft originally concepted by the United States Air Force under a program headed by General Kenneth Dempster in 1965 after the introduction of Soviet SAM missiles and their downing of U.S. strike aircraft over the skies of North Vietnam.[1] These aircraft were specially equipped with radar seeking missiles, and tasked with destroying the radars and SAM installations of enemy air defense systems.[2][3]

my point is this kill ratios are a poor metric...

it dosent matter what the kill ratio is... if you dont get the job done, or fulfill your objectives in going to war in the first place...

it only matters when you can wipe their kind off the face of this earth... kill every man woman and child...genocide a race of people or a country till there is no living soul....

like America did with the Philippines killing women and children until the Filipinos gave up and quit their guerrilla war in the 1900s

something stupid americans continue to not learn even today

as much as an american soldier like to kill the child of a insurgent they just martyred they cant.... they have to wait until the child grows up and picks up a gun or straps on a bomb... then they can shoot them...

because these days America has its rules of engagement, there are war crimes, crimes against humanity and tribunals

thats why these days america is still tucking tail and running in places like Iraq

and will do so in Afghanistan...

Deadly Iraq war ends with exit of last U.S. troops
By Moni Basu, CNN

(CNN)-- Early Sunday, as the sun ascended to the winter sky, the very last American convoy made its way down the main highway that connects Iraq and Kuwait.

The military called it its final "tactical road march." A series of 110 heavily armored, hulking trucks and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles carrying about 500 soldiers streamed slowly but steadily out of the combat zone.

A few minutes before 8 a.m., the metal gate behind the last MRAP closed. With it came to an end a deadly and divisive war that lasted almost nine years, its enormous cost calculated in blood and billions.

Some rushed to touch the gate, forever a symbol now of an emotional, landmark day. Some cheered with the Army's ultimate expression of affirmation: "Hooah!"

"It's hard to put words to it right now," said Lt. Col. Jack Vantress.
"It's a feeling of elation," he said, "to see what we've accomplished in the last eight-and-a-half years and then to be part of the last movement out of Iraq."
Once, when hundreds of thousands of Americans were in Iraq, the main highway was better known as Main Supply Route Tampa and soldiers trekked north towards Baghdad and beyond, never knowing what danger lurked on their path.

On this monumental day, the Texas-based 3rd Brigade Special Troops Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division's main concern was how to avoid a traffic jam on their final journey in Iraq.

Staff Sgt. Daniel Gaumer, 37, was on this road in August 2003. It was his first time at war. He was frightened.

There was not a lot of traffic at that time, he recalled. He remembered a lot of cheering by Iraqis, even though the situation was tense.

Sunday morning, the air was decidedly different.
"It's pretty historic," he said about the drive south, hoping he will not ever have to come back through this unforgiving terrain again.

Once there were bases sprinkled in the desolate desert between Nasiriya and Basra, American soldiers hidden from view behind walls of giant mesh Hesco bags filled with dirt and sand to stave off incoming fire.

On this day, the roads, the bases were in Iraqi hands, the sands in the bags returned to the earth.

Once, almost nine years ago in March 2003, U.S. tanks and armored personnel carriers had thundered north, with the drive and determination needed to decapitate a dictator.

On this day, heading south towards Khabari border crossing, the soldiers took stock of their sacrifice.

In another war, there had been little joy or even emotion as final jet transports lifted Americans from Vietnamese soil.

The only war the USer's ever won...was the civil war.

All the rest of US involvement in conflict has been "come in late" (profiteering) or invade a 3rd world country.

Not much to be proud of here folks...move along...
