HCMC 2013 Day 1 Reflection: War Remnants Museum
War Remnants Museum
1. Did you notice any variation in the way the war was being portrayed through the photos? Is there any bias?
Yes, there are more bias towards the Americans because of the photos aiming towards the cruelty of the US although there was also cruelty from the Vietnamese as well

2. What are the impacts of the war? Think along the lines of types (economic, social, political, environmental), as well as short/long term impacts. You may consider the impacts of Agent Orange and more.
Long term deformities.

3. Who won and who lost?
Vietnam won in terms of forcing the Americans out of Vietnam while actually, in the long term, both lost in terms of having troubles with deformities.

4. Are there any lessons from the Vietnam War that Singapore can apply currently/in the future?
Good connections to avoid war as if war breaks out, the countries are affected by losing business.
