The Vietnam war was a more formal military affair in the Nixon era. The Viet Cong was wiped out with the Tet Offensive. What the place needed was the high tech weapons of today. They were not around, the South Vietnamese lacked elan, and the enterprise simply wasn't worth the body count. The domino theory also proved over time to be bogus. The one horrible legacy of it all was the genocide in Cambodia.

You are wrong. We tested high tech artillary shells developed at NRL which killed the enemy by the hundreds. After they were found to work, they were packed up and sent back to the states. Additionally, the tactics employed under the direction of McNamara were self-defeating. I don't believe you know anything about the war or the period.
