Lol no, that's the excuse they used to pull out and not be shamed since nobody would be able to believe the great US army actually lost a war, god forbid. It was the protests AND they got their asses kicked. US soldiers death toll was way WAY higher than the VC death toll.

It was also impossible to hold the vast majority of vietnamese territory without burning it all down, as soon as the American troops passed through a patch of jungle the VC would just move back in. In terms of body count you could say the US won, but it was an ideological war and the US lost in the fact that Vietnam became communist.

I think it depends on how you view it. Sure, the US army killed a lot more of the Viet Cong than the other way around but the VC were capable of replenishing the losses while the US army for a variety of reasons, mostly political and societal, weren't. Because of this, the US army lost the war of attrition even though the had fewer casualties in almost every single engagement.
Now the US could have continued the war in Vietnam indefinitely and maybe even won, with significant sacrifices both in terms of resources and people, but it's unlikely that the VC were ever going to give up because they were supplied by the Chinese government that also wasn't going to back down any time soon.

Well, they were shooting down farmers with pitchforks and crude rifles, what do you expect?

It was a war that the people didn't want in the end, and that's what ended it. Not such a big deal now because there's no draft so people don't take as much an interest unless they know someone deployed.
In another light though, if you look at Vietnam as a section of the cold war, which ultimately pitted the USSR against the US and allies for political dominance, one could say that the US won the war.

I've talked to plenty of vietnam vets, the general consensus is that we were getting fucked hard, and it was a godsend that Nixon pulled our ass out.

It's more like the U.S. wasn't allowed to. They literally had to play defensive the entire "war", never allowed to move too far North to deal with the root of the problem.
