Man, I have a test next period. I hope I know as much about the '60s and the Vietnam War as I think I do. :/

I'm probably wrong but is it something to do with Rebelling? (if it is wrong it's wrong and housedog can correct me if both of us are wrong or if I'm right it'll help you) :P

The Communist North Vietnam attacked and attempted to take over the Democratic-leaning South Vietnam.

What brought about US involvement is what i meant.. What specific foreign policy?

You've probably already taken it, though

This is just a random interjection, but I took a graduate-level course on the history of the Vietnam Conflict, 1947-1975.

Keep posting when you reach 50 pages and I'll start a new thread when I get home.

That's a lot of the fascination about explosives and weapons, too. Sure, you might hate what is done with them, but that doesn't mean you can't admire their engineering. There are also people who are fascinated by the Nazi culture, too. Horrible things can be interesting and still be acknowledged as horrible.

I agree! US involvement was because of the Truman Doctrine, which stated that the United States would work to prevent the spread of communism outside of the Soviet block. We assumed that all communist governments were puppeted by the Soviets, which in Vietnam was untrue.

I lived in a small town in the Shenandoah Valley, Brent

What, might I ask, is a tornado cannon? It sounds intriguing.

Personally, I'd rather take an AVENGER AA system over a FLaK '88.

Or is this strictly WWII tech?

you know they say Operation Valyky or whatever wouldn't have killed Hitler even in an enclosed space like the meeting place it was suppose to be held in.

Uh, yeah it would have killed him if he was in the concrete bunker in which he normally held the meetings.

nope mythbusters busted it. They needed more explosives to create a shockwave that was deadly enough. And yes that is it id.

As i recall, the explosive used in valkyrie killed several high ranking officials meeting there. However, the bomb was placed on the wrong side of the table, so it only gave him minor injuries. If it had been placed nearer to him it probably would have killed him

I think if it was placed on the table instead of under it will help as well.

In the reality (if I remember it properly) nobody died, only few people were injuried and it was effect of puting the bomb near the leg of table.
