    Why didn't we use the A-bomb on Hanoi?

    How come we never dropped an atomic bomb on Hanoi during the Vietnam War? I think we should have at least considered doing so. At the very least we should have firebombed that city. We could have killed that evil bastard Ho Chi Minh and his communist minions (Vietcong, NVA) would have panicked and been easy pickings.

    Because of our wimpy conduct during the war up to 3 million of our South Vietnemese allies perished under the repressive communist North Vietnemese.

    We beat Japan by destroying their infrastructure. We should have done the same to North Vietnam.

    Because the Vietnam War was in an era when other nations, namely the U.S.S.R., had nuclear ICBM's too. Dropping one in a proxy war against a communist state would have been a very bad idea. There would be global protest, political backlashing within the government, and potential nuclear return fire. It's the same reason the U.S.S.R. didn't just nuke Kabul during their proxy war in Afghanistan.

    edit: and it kind of defeats the purpose liberating a country. It's always best to keep strategic bombing (bombings targeted towards industry and infrastructure) to a minimum because you decimate the countries wealth in the process. If you're trying to reclaim/annex/liberate territory, you're going to inherit a graveyard if you just thoroughly strategically bomb everything. A nuke on a capital would count towards that. That's why the U.S. stuck mostly with tactical bombing.

    You need to study the history of Vietnam to understand why Ho came to do what he did. Google is your friend unless you don't want to learn the truth.

    Ngo Dinh Diem was the true hero of Vietnam.

    Ho Chi Minh was a mass killer who deserves to burn alongside Hitler and Stalin.

    i'd neg you if you were worth the mouse click. ngo was a fascist authoritarian, who modeled his government on hitler and his nazis. he was little more than a puppet installed by the french and later controlled by the americans, just like the other military and authoritarian dictators installed after the european colonialists left asia, ala indonesia, thailand and the philipines.

    i can't argue for ho and the vietminh's methods, but at least ho had the grapes to stand up for the sanctity and sovereignity of his country, and put his money where his mouth was.

    In documentaries, they talk about released info on an agreement wtih teh Soviets...no nukes on Turkey, no nukes on Vietnam. Many cold war battles were actually negotiated directly between Moscow and Washington DC while middle-men fought.

    If Ngo was a "puppet" then how come that moron Kennedy couldn't control him and later supported assasinating him?

    Ngo was no puppet. He was a wise and brave leader who was determined to drive out the communist animals with his own unique methods, and he wouldn't let anyone tell him how to do it.

    ... we didn't use the a-bomb because we found out in the after math of the previous usage that it is an uncalled for thing to do. no matter how bad a nation's government is, the people do not deserve THAT.

    also.... some of the people who would have been killed were our own soldiers in captivity.
