This paper has traced the development of the Vietnam War, beginning from the socio-political context from which it emerged and the subsequent involvement of the US government in the effort to prevent the spread of communism. While the actions of the US troops may be seen as noble and warranted by the situation, the fact that the war cost so much in terms of lives and money makes any semblance of victory in it seem insignificant. There is indeed no true winner in this war because of the incredible losses that each side had sustained over a decade's worth of fighting.
Now I would like to talk about the view of the opposition. According to Influence on Children Media "Media influence on children has steadily increased as new and more sophisticated types of media have been developed and made available to the American public" (par. 2). Things are different from 20 years ago when parents were growing up and they still are. The media is changing and the content being shown is also changing and people are going to have to adapt to these changes. Also children believe what they see on the TV and learn by observing ( Influence on Children Media ). Parents are there to correct their children and let them know that violent behaviors are wrong and that there are consequences.
