Without the US south vietnam ( saigon city ) wouldnt look like this today. You see after vietnam war ended. . South Vietnam from a country that's like in the top 10 of Asia went down to become one of the top poorest country.
Thanks to the North ( Hanoi ) communist invade us southern people and they never agree to peace negotiations with the south.

Bangkok of Thailand would be nothing compared to Saigon back in the day. Even Singapore once dreamt back in the 60 that they will surpass or at least be like south vietnam capital (saigon)

I could only imagine! Hanoi would be comparable to Bangkok by now?
