Per the Vietnam War, was North Vietnam alligned more with China or the USSR?
This is very confusing to me. Seems North Vietnam was more alligned with China initially but with the USSR later per the conflicts? You would think all the communist parties were on the same page but my research shows they were not. A communist alliance between two countries could change over time in ways that were adverse to both per my homework. For example, seem communist china came to be anti soviet at some point during all of this madness. Please help! Thanks!
From what little i know the Russians were in the Cold War with the U.S. at the time and were the major supplier of tools, armaments, Mig fighters, trucks etc etc. There may have even been some pilots and advisers in country. China, though supporting North Vietnam as a fellow communist country, had disagreements with N.V. which actually caused a short war in 1978 over the two countries national boundary disputes.
Vietnam was more closely aligned with Russia, which supplied the Vietnamese resistance against US and French occupation. China had its own problems and was disinterested in global spheres of influence. We became trade allies with China just as we were bombing Hanoi into rubble.

North Korea is threatening to "wipe the Us off the map." Do they have the weapons to do this? Do you think we can intercept thier missiles?
