    -Reasons for both wars are very controversial; compare Gulf of Tonkin to the Bush Administration's insistence that Iraq had WMD's

    -compare Guerrila warfare in vietnam to the insurgency in iraq

    Similarities:

    US forces are far superior in technology and weapons to their enemies in both cases.

    In both wars the US wins almost every military confrontation but the enemies prolong conflict through guerilla/insurgent activities in the hopes that prolonged conlflict and casualties will turn public opinion against the war forcing the US to pull out.

    NVA/Viet Cong were only able to continue fighting as long as they were supported with money, weapons and intelligence by countries not directly involved in the conflict. In their case mostly Russia and China. Insurgents need support from Iran and other countries to provide them with a safe haven to opperate from as well as weapons and money.

    In both cases the US was looking for an excuse to esculate the conflict and in both cases the reason for doing so was proven to be false. Gulf of Tonkin incident most likely didn't happen. No WMD ever found in Iraq.

    Iraq is a continuation of the "War on Terror" much like Vietnam was a continuation of the "War on Communism". War on Terror started in Afganistan and the War on Communism basically started in Korea.

    Differences would be:

    In Vietnam although a lot of the actual infantry fighting was against the Viet Cong (a non official military of the North) the US was officially at war with the North Vietnamese government/military. The Iraqi government and military are our allies in the conflict in Iraq now.

    Draft was implemented in Vietnam. The Iraq war is all volounteer military.

    Vietnam was basically a battle ground for the cold war. The US was their to stop communism and it's allies where the North Vietnamese/Viet Cong were only able to fight the war with the full support of Russia and China who wanted the spread of Communism. They also wanted to see the US and it's policies defeated so although Russia and China did not necessarily fight in the war it was only possible because of their support.

    Iraq is more of a battle against Terrosists and their ideals. It doesn't so much involve clear cut countries who support one side or another as much as it is certain groups of people. Although countries like Iran have certainly helped to prolong casualties in Iraq with their support.

    The US took over for the French in Vietnam who didn't exactly have a great reputation with a lot of the Vietnamese. This caused support from the Vietnamese people to be lower then necessary for them to be able to take over the cause for the US when we left which ultimatly doomed them when the US did leave.

    Support for the US in Iraq is much higher and it would appear that they will be able to support themselves at some point in the future to carry on a democratic government without the US.


    The South Vietnamese government was heavily corrupt and the South Vietnamese military was no match for the NVA/Viet Cong. The Iraqi government for the most part seems to be working well and it's police and military carry out a lot of the opporations against the insurgents.

    Hope that helps.

    the beginning of the Cold War could be said to have started near iraq, in iran, when the soviets refused to withdraw post ww-2 after having agreed to earlier
