If the Vietnam war was wrong, why didn't the world stop America?

While the US shouldn't have been involved in the Vietnam War, the conflict involved an invasion of South Vietnam by North Vietnam in support of a local insurgency. North Vietnam was no "victim" in the conflict.

As I said in another thread, it's not at all obvious North Vietnam was in the wrong. One could argue that South Vietnam was itself an artificial creation, in large measure, on the part of the U.S.

To speak the truth, USA wasn't exception. France, England - all of them had their Vietnams. USA was bigger and its crimes were bigger.
Well, now, that we're at truth, CCCP had also it's Vietnams.

And to remain at the OP, one world did try to stop US in Vietnam.

this is the sort of thing the UN votes its displeasure on, and nothing happens.

USA in Viet Nam not worth anyone getting hands dirty.

similar to League of Nations.

if the UN couldn't stop the genocide in Cambodia--wouldn't even try--we can accept its toothlessness.

sure, send some 'peacekeepers' to mittel Europe or some third world pit, but forget the big stuff.

Yeah but it took it 20 YEARS?! Not to mention we saw another one and once again the world didn't do anything and just complained....

How? A lot of people complain about so they must have done something wrong.

Your first post on this forum is a provocative assumption that indicates you have an agenda you wish to push. By all means discuss the pros and cons of the Vietnam War but to start with an assumption of wrongdoing by the US and Allies says that you wish to make a statement rather than have a discussion.
