I need help. I'm doing overview of wars fought after 1945 and I've got a problem. How should I write about wars in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos (1957-1975), should I regard them as the same war (since everywhere were basically same players and same type of warfare) or as different wars (cause they were fought in different countries)?

Please respond, you gonna make me a great help in my methodology, since same shit was later in former Yugoslavia and now at Congo. Thanx

They were all dirty gooks, boyee. Sarge says you should draw some riceniggers getting violently beaten by American heros.

There are many places in the world (especially that paricular region in Asia) where those borders drawn on a map do not really exist. Therefore that war could be the same thing even though I havent looked it up.

In other words, some people that live just inside of the Vietnam border may not classify themselves as citizens of that nation state (country).

Well, these borders are centuries old (Im talkin about cambodia). And it's been a civil war with racial genocide (about 2 milion dead if Im not wrong) ... different from vietnam.

well if you think about it vietnam would prove the domino effect on that area. they are different because the Korean war involved the Chinese, Turks, U.S and koreans not just Koreans
