The Vietnam War - Warfare and Tactics

This clip includes interesting observations on the tactics of warfare from different viewpoints - a US General who was Chief of Staff of US Airforce and the main Vietnamese General and leader.(Warning - some disturbing scenes towards the end - dead bodies)

The US General observes " We dropped 6 and a half million tons of bombs on Vietnam and still lost the war".

Question to consider - Why did the most powerful country in the world suffer defeat in Vietnam?
