As far as Korea is concerned, it wasn't a win, but it wasn't a loss either. The end result didn't really change much territorially. The only substantial result was the loss of money and lives.

Vietnam, on the other hand, was a massive debacle. It was a war we shouldn't have been involved in in the first place, and then once we did enter it, it was handled terribly. I will admit, this is our only loss in a major* war.
