The US Navy's Brown Water Navy (Riverine Force) had the Mekong Delta Rivers pretty well sewed up; the enemy could still get through...but vast numbers of USN Swift Boats and PBR's, Monitors, and Alpha boats put a strangle hold on the enemies water routes. The Ho Chi Minh trail was another matter. That AO (Area of Operations) was bombed by the USAF into a lunar moon landscape; but since it was in neutral country (Cambodia and Laos), it couldn't be destroyed. The trail was bombed by B-52's and constantly "truck hunted" by the AC-130 Spectres. The trail survived it all.

What were the tactics used by US during the Vietnam war?

The North Vietnamese Army's strategy (NVA) was simple: infiltrate the south via civilian disguises, attack with speed and surprise, use women and children, send supplies via the Ho Chi Minh trail, and use guerrilla pacts. South Vietnam's strategy was to destroy the Ho Chi Minh trail, send individual companies on search and destroy missions, use "tunnel soldiers" to collapse NVA tunnels. Attack the north with air power and land power. America's plan was to bombard North Vietnam into giving up. Nixon's plan was to vietnamize the war, pull back US soldiers in an attempt to retain honor, and bomb north Vietnam into negotiating.

The lines of supply are too long, the populations are often hostile, and it is extremely difficult to attack their supply centers and supply lines, while the invaders' is easily interrupted.
