“America in Vietnam” Please respond to the following question. This is the MAIN DISCUSSION QUESTION this week:
The Vietnam War was a counterinsurgency that involved us in guerilla warfare that was similar, in some ways, to what we face in Afghanistan today. But the way the Vietnam War was conducted was considered to be immoral and unjust by many.
- Describe the prevailing arguments of what constitutes a “Just War,” and assess the justice of the Vietnam War in that context. Was it a Just War or not? When can violence be morally justifiable?
