10. So many things wrong from the outset
The fraudulent ideological basis, Straussian lies meant to contradict the verdict of history. That verdict that nationalism is triumphant and that colonialism is a 19th Century artifact apparently wasn't learned in Vietnam.

All the technical mistakes would fill a book. Shinseki was right, but whether his approach could have succeeded is questionable. His position basically was that we didn't have enough forces to prevail in this conflict. He didn't want to go, because this outcome was forseen.
