How would America perform in Vietnam in a modern war?

If the USA tried to capture all of Vietnam like they did in the vietnam war.

could America do it now? Also the Chinese secretly start arming the vietnamese like they did

does America have better technology to counter jungle warfare? and guerilla wars?

    The United States never once attempted to "capture all of Vietnam". That IMHO was our problem. And the Vietnam conflict of the 1960's was very much a modern conflict at the time.

    Like we did before, in an intense and extremely effective matter, but being held back from total victory by political hamstringing the entire way.

    I think the US, with all its military might and technology, can invade and capture ANY country (even Russia and China) if they really (REALLY) want it.

    It's very hard to kill ideology.
