Side note: HCM wasn't a hardcore communist btw. Looking back, French colonialism was to blame for this war. In 1945, HCM and Viet Minh even asked the US to help them fight french colonial rule but of course the US denied because they were allies with France. HCM even quoted directly from the US Constitution with an American military commander standing beside him when he gave a speech after the Japanese left Vietnam at the end of WW2. All the Vietnamese people wanted to do is reunite the country. Out of desperation for reunification for both sides, only then did HCM decided that he had to resort to communism.
There is no debate in any corner of the world including here in the US that we lost that war. There is a saying that the US won every battle but lost the war. This is basically true.
All of all weapon look impressive to peasant and girls but does not last in war because it took all of you country bread and farms and slave to supply enough bullets against chinese ocean of people or Indian 1.4 billion of women hunger men
It is cheaper than bullet. And microsoft had good money design software
Who print money more win
I have always watched almost all movies and documentaries on Vietnam war and done a fair amount of research ….but this was something new ….thank u for the informative video👍👍good one 👍
interesting video! good work!
Awesome vlog don't worry about US subscribers just tell it as it is
Nice unbiast vlog well done, from a welshhman living in Australia who loves Vietnam and partnered with a n Italian
Comments from others I read. This is Propaganda. “Very one sided, anti American. As inaccurate a portrayal as could be. The war lasted for years with the independent South requesting help from multiple nations, yet the museum referred to the war as “American aggression”, the theme of the entire place. Veterans were appalled at the way the Vietnamese turned the tables, making their vicious and cruel soldiers look like benevolent ones. No mention of the thousands of Vietnamese which the U.S. gave asylum to while over hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese left behind were tortured and slaughtered literally in front of their own families when the U.S. pulled out. Do not waste your time on this propaganda”! Not my words, copied!
This Museum is only showing one side of the story. They only focus on the american crimes and always talk about one Vietnam even though it was mostly a civil war. Also funny how HCM ( communism ) won the war but today capitalism rules anyway
I’m a Veteran and was stationed in S Korea during the Vietnam War. The only thing that went to Vietnam from me was my blood I donated, used for the guys fighting there. I received a pin, “I Gave to a Buddy” and at my young age, it meant a lot to me. It was not good at all, for either side, I guess the intention was to stop Communist aggression to the South. They asked for help, but only Americans helped. What would Europe be if America didn’t join the Second World War to stop aggression. All of Europe would have been speaking German. As for me, this video about this museum is inappropriate and is offensive to Americans and Veterans because as I have learned after watching, it’s one sided and a lie.
a very one sided story is shown in the war remnants museum of Saigon. Yes what the Americans used/did in the VN war was pretty awful but the VC and NVA were no angels either
You are right the usa didn't even know why we were there and they treated the veterans didn't get treated well when they came home it was and still is sad I'm old enough to have been the age of the soldiers that fought and i remember watching the news the last days of the war and the vit cong were over taking Saigon pretty intense
If you enjoy music, I think you will find this rare footage fascinating. I watched this recently a short time before you posted this vlog:
Well,this war will always be questionable about the outcome. Yes, it is true that the U.S. did leave after it got so unpopular back home. But it must too be pointed out that in the later years it was not carried out very well from Washington.
Yes it is true that the north can claim victory, but then again in the long run, the country is now embracing so many things that are American now, like capitalism, and much more freedoms that have come along with the economic growth. They are certainly now much more freedom minded than the Chinese government, and that is a good thing. One thing that must be pointed out though, is that agent orange was not a chemical weapon, nor was it deployed as one. Agent orange was used as a foliage killer, to clear back areas of dense foliage from places like the banks of rivers, to thwart the viet Kong from having places they could ambush American forces coming up river. Over time it was used more and more because it worked well at doing so.
Unfortunately, the bad thing was that the health effects of exposure to this over the long term were not known, and as a result many thousands of our own veterans came down with the same issues as the Vietnamese. If it were a chemical weapon, then we would not have sprayed our own troops with it. That does not excuse the damage it caused on both sides, but it was not a purpose made chemical weapon.
But, as you say, war in itself is a terrible last resort, so if anything this war should be a study in what happens when there is not a clear end game, and when there is not enough planning before engaging in it.
The important thing here is that former foes are now friends, and when I was there last year, I was made so welcome by the people there, and it is the start of a great partnership between our nations and people’s, and that is always a good thing. If anyone is considering a trip there, by all means go, it is well worth it, I hope to go back to visit there again soon.
I do not think that you will lose subscribers for showing the things you showed, it is good to have discussions and hear opinions from all sides, no one ever learned a thing from only getting one side or angle of a story, that is what the power of learning is all about…….

Pre 1995ish ,tb chk, the museum situated in Vo Van Tan st. <10min ride from there. Its name was The War Crime Museum. There were rows after rows of jars of deformed VNmese baby cavaders, fetal death corpses submerged in preservative chemical in exhibition. Those abnormal jars removed, the museum relocated, renamed to the current known to pave the US -VN diplomatic normalisation. As a primary school kids, in our"tender age", 1969ish we saw battle torn VC corpses laid on street. in public exhibition as a deterence to the VC inherent population at location opposit to the town hall between the provincial admin bld & jail. They held these public exhibitions twice a mth at average. The town was Ba Xuyen, the province's head was full Col. Quach Quynh Ha. The exhibition area was 30m from the fence of his residence. His son Quach Quynh Tinh & I went to the same primary school: Truong Nam Tieu Hoc Tinh Ly Ba Xuyen. The chief jailer name was Ta.
Michele, the history was written incorrectly by both sides. The VN gov. is hidding tons of the cruelest acts committed by the US beyond imaginations of yours, mine, and even of the battle harden soldiers'. My experience: life under the US econ embargo was far harsher than during war time, We don't want to live those lives again. What you saw in those pix is just a tip of the iceperg.
A Time to Love & A Time to Die. Now, It's A Time To Love. That's the morale of the Return Sword Lake of Hanoi. The Turtle diety emerged from the lake dmanded the King to return the sword that he lent the King to repel the Northern invaders. So the Turtle Diety reminded the King it was time to repair the war torn nation. Wishing millions who'd sacrified for our right of self determination would forgive the gov. who sacrifice the truth for the sake of the nation reparation.
I believe there never really is a winner in War! The Vietnam war is is one of the best examples of that, I saw someone commenting and saying that USA was the winner because they won most of the battles. That is a very childish view of what war is. What was the objective of the Vietnam war and what was the outcome? If you can answer those questions than you know there was no winner! Also, many commenting here on the horrors the American soldiers had to deal with, even after the war. I am very empathic towards all of them, but let's not forget all the innocent people that was killed in Vietnam. That is even worse in my book as they never chose to be part of the war! I don't take any sides I just say that war is the ugliest thing ever created by humankind!
I'm from New Jersey, USA. My wife's dad and my uncle both survived Vietnam. We in the states dont consider Vietnam a victory. We lost a lot of people and so did they. When that many people die no one wins. Great video.
I visited this museum about 8 years ago and I was really shaken by the agent orange pictures… and by the reconstructed cells where the captured soldiers were kept by the Viet Cong… I came away feeling very depressed but I'm glad I saw everything, and it was very educational in an honest way, and bettered my understanding of the war… I do remember there were a few vendors there selling obviously 'fake' US soldier Zippo lighters, made to look like they were original from the war… I have a lot of respect for the industrious and very friendly Vietnamese people, having visited many times, but please don't expoit the lives lost for a few bucks.. love to us all 🙂
I was a child when Vietnam escalated and a teenager when it ended. I live in small town America. No one spoke with enthusiasm about a war with Vietnam. Never. There were protests against the war in big cities. In the small town, people just wanted it to end and hoped their sons would not be the one to die or be maimed there, for no reason that would benefit anyone. Young men were drafted to go to the war, and that was a huge problem. "Draft dodgers" might run to Canada and shirk the draft. They didn't believe in the war and wanted to live. Others felt that, no matter, you are called to the draft and you should go and do your duty.
Over 50,000 from America (mostly) men died in Vietnam for nothing (my opinion). Many more were wounded in body, soul, or spirit. The effects are real and linger, but it isn't talked about. I was actually a woman in the US Army for a decade. Vietnam was not a thing that was ever celebrated or even much discussed in that setting. Except to note the combat patches on the veterans who were still serving and silently give some respect to the fact that they were there.
I was remembering, not long ago, being a little girl in 1968. At school that year, two classmates had brothers in the Army. One day, in the middle of the quiet afternoon of doing schoolwork, one of the little girls started to weep. The teacher asked, "What's wrong?" She replied, "My brother is in Vietnam." That is all she said, but the heartbreak in her, made me almost weep to remember that genuine emotion, fear, heartache. You could have heard a pin drop, as all the kids understood what it meant that he was in Vietnam. A similar situation happened later with the other girl. Her brother was on leave and came to play his guitar to the class–we loved it, he was leaving to go back to Vietnam and she clung to her brother and cried. Nothing was good about the Vietnam war, except the people this country sent there.
Very nice tour!
On the USA side, the conflict's (war) budget funding was suspended. Thomas Eagleton (Missouri Senator).. There was NO winner.
