Vietnam '65 Next Month

Matrix Games announces March 5th is the release date for Vietnam '65, the upcoming strategy game which takes players into the Vietnam War before it jumped the shark. They plan to celebrate the news today with a livestream on the Slitherine Twitch channel at 1:00 pm EST. Word is the game is now in the late beta testing phase:
Early 1965 – the Cold War turned hot in Southeast Asia. The US Army dispatches men and military equipment to prevent Vietnam falling under communist dominance. It was the beginning of an unconventional conflict in which technology and resources were not enough to ensure victory. By mastering the jungle terrain and conducting guerrilla operations such as ambushes and raids, the Viet Cong managed to disrupt US plans and resist this giant superpower!

Vietnam ’65, the new counter-insurgency strategy game by Every Single Soldier, aims to capture the essence of the Vietnam War. At the head of the US forces, the player will have to forget what they have learnt from other strategy games and think differently to achieve victory. Building a safe logistics chain, gathering intelligence from the local villagers, calling in air support on time, revealing the Ho Chi Minh trail, and minimizing casualties will be crucial to securing political support and eliminating the invisible Viet Cong threat!

Thanks to fruitful weeks of in-depth testing, the game has now entered its late beta phase. So the time for traditional war will come to an end on March 05th, the official release date of Vietnam ’65!

The way to end an insurgency is to remove the culture that allows it to grow. If military occupation is what's pissing off the locals, then the solution is to remove the military. If it's something else (ruined infrastructure for example), then change that specific condition to the benefit of the locals. At any rate, you're essentially correct that the military can't do much to end it with direct action.

*The Afghans were especially "disparate" compared to the Iraqis.

What if the 'insurgency' had nothing to do with the US, and the reason you were sent there was bogus? How do you fix it then? I mean Afghanistan (and Iraq) were invaded for all the wrong reasons. Everyone conveninetly forgets that militant Jihadis in Afghanistan were propped up and financed almost exclusively by the US during the Soviet Afghan war. Politics is never ever black and white, and especially the aftermath of 911 is murky shit that no one really wants to take an honest look at. Im sorry for all the young men and women who bought into the propaganda hook line and sinker and lost their lives for what exactly?? For their country? For revenge? The results of that Iraqi 'WMD' adventure are also really stellar as we can all see the minute we turn on the news to see another beheading by the Caliphate...
