Naidem comments on Mid-Season Invitational 2017 / Play-In Draw - Round 2 / Post-Draw Discussion: "Even after we left, the South Vietnamese were better equipped than the North, they were just not remotely as interested or capable as the Vietcong were, and the South got smoked. Our only options to "win" would have been to just keep slaughtering the North Vietnamese, they weren't going to negotiate and they weren't going to stop fighting. The Vietcong WERE the people of North Vietnam, the more we killed them, the stronger their cause became, it was a zero-sum game. They were fighting for their homeland, we were fighting based on flawed ideology. Not to mention that the war was massively unpopular in the states during the later stages of the conflict.
