The war began on February 17, 1975.
It was the first major battle for control of the Vietnam peninsula, the birthplace of the United States.
Its first major defeat came on the first day of the war, when the US Marines were defeated by the Viet Cong at Khe Sanh, in central Hanou.
But the US did not surrender until March 4, when they were captured by the North Vietnamese, who surrendered on April 6.
That was the start of a long and bloody conflict that lasted nearly two decades, but ultimately ended with the Vietnamese in a truce in May 1975.
The Vietnamese had been fighting for control over their own land since 1954, when South Vietnam signed a peace treaty with the United Nations.
But the war would not end until North Vietnam withdrew from South Vietnam and the South relinquished its communist status in 1975.
North Vietnam had already been defeated by American troops in 1965, and it was in this conflict that the US had begun to see its influence diminish.
By 1975, North Vietnam had a military force of between 2.2 million and 2.7 million men, and its population of about 100 million people.
After the US forces were forced to withdraw in 1966, South Vietnam’s government began to seek the liberation of its own people.
It would take until 1974 for the country to achieve that goal.
The Vietnam War was not only a war in the mind of the people.
The US government and military also used propaganda to convince people that their country was not the aggressor and was being supported by the United Nation.
The propaganda campaign started in earnest during the early 1960s, and the US began to exploit the situation to its advantage.
The US began using propaganda to persuade the Vietnamese that the war was a “civil war”.
“It was clear that the people of the South did not want war.
They wanted peace,” a military official told the Washington Post in 1974.
The media used the propaganda campaign to convince the Vietnamese people that the North was the aggressors, that the South was the victim and that the Americans were the aggressores.
In 1968, a year after the US withdrew from the country, President Lyndon Johnson sent a team to the country and asked the Vietnamese to “re-unite”.
“I have a message for them: the war is over, and we are going to take back this country,” Johnson said in a televised address to the nation.
“It’s a new era.
There’s a war going on, and if you’re not ready, we’re not going to give you a chance.”
After the war ended, the United Kingdom and France agreed to help South Vietnam reclaim their territory, and South Vietnam agreed to give up its nuclear weapons and its “national independence”.
But the Vietnamese did not listen to Johnson’s instructions.
The North Vietnamese launched an armed insurgency and was defeated in 1975, but the United State and other Western countries continued to use the “war of liberation” rhetoric, despite the US’s withdrawal in 1975 and the signing of the peace treaty.
The following year, the UN General Assembly adopted Resolution 242, which called for a “peaceful settlement to the present political, economic, social and cultural problems in the country”.
In a resolution adopted on May 25, 1976, the Security Council adopted Resolution 651, which said the war “has no legal validity”.
And then in September 1977, after the war had ended, it became the UN Charter.
The Charter was a major victory for the United states.
It laid out what the US could expect of the North after the “peace” agreement was concluded.
The treaty gave the North an independent armed force, and allowed it to maintain its nuclear arsenal, a move that would lead to its own nuclear arsenal.
“There is no other country on Earth that has an atomic bomb that can threaten the United Sates military bases in the United Arab Emirates, the American air bases in Kuwait, and Japan,” former US President Gerald Ford told the New York Times.
The “peace process” was the culmination of the “humanitarian” effort by the UN and the United nations, and was seen as a major step forward for the development of international law.
“This treaty is a victory for human rights, a victory of justice, and a victory over colonialism,” then UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali told the UN Security Council in December 1977.
“It is a triumph of internationalism, and in this, the peace process was successful.”
The United States was one of the few nations to sign the treaty.
“We are pleased to be the first nation to sign it, because we know that the peace of the future is ours,” President Ronald Reagan said at a ceremony in October 1977.
The peace agreement came into force in 1979, and after that, the two countries began to negotiate their own separate peace agreements.
In 1982, the North, which had been in talks with the UN,
