Thread: The world powers divided Vietnam (17th Parallel) with a drawn border in a manner similar to Korea (38th Parallel). Did outside powers actually recognize the political/cultural and historical borders this course has surveyed? If so, how did they do so, and if they did not recognize more historical or natural borders, why not? Could this explain in part the propensity of the United States to fight the war in Vietnam similar to the way it fought in Korea? Incorporate biblical principles into your stance.
