The capital of north Vietnam is?

There is no "North Vietnam" as a country. The term "North Vietnam" was an erronous term used by the US to justify there intervention into Vietnam after the Paris Peace Accord 1954 which temporarily divide the country into 2 parts, North and South. FoIn the history there was no north or south country in Vietnam. The capital of Vietnam is Hanoi.

Why did the US get involved in the Revolutionary War?

The US got involved in the Revolutionary War to become a separate country. American history classes will teach that the colonists wearied of 'taxation without representation'.

How could a small country like North Vietnam defeat a large country like the United States?

In the Vietnam War, the US was engaged in battle with the forces of North Vietnam and the guerrilla forces in South Vietnam. The North sponsored and supplied the Viet Cong guerrillas, and North Vietnam was in turn supplied by the Soviet Union and perhaps had the help of China. The US was fighting a "limited" war. The US was solid in its policy of "communist containment". There was no attempt to overthrow the government of North Vietnam. The US sought a war of containment to also prevent it from becoming a larger war that would more directly involve the USSR or China. North Vietnam was not a threat to the USA. As with the US Civil War, all the South had to do was make the war unbearable and have the North quit. This is what happened in the Vietnam War. The US quit. As the war dragged on, it was clear that the US public was getting tired of the US troop losses. Time was on the side of the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong guerrillas. In a perfect world, the US could have easily been victorious in the war. The US had help defeat Hitler and Imperial Japan. North Vietnam was a small weak nation. In limited wars, where the enemy will make any sacrifice to win, the weak has an advantage over the stronger enemy. North Vietnam could allow huge guerrilla losses and there was no "public opinion" allowed to express dissatisfaction with the communists. The argument that the government of South Vietnam was corrupt holds no currency. The government of North Vietnam was also corrupt. One party communist governments are corrupt by their very nature. The US lost because of the restraints it had on itself and the fears that a more aggressive war might widen the war. It is clear now and then that limited wars are rarely successful.
