Hobo, you are correct militarily. USA won the military side of the war, but lost it politically. The Tet Offensive was the final push by the VietCong and it was lost.
However, Americans usually like short and vistorious wars. Since it was played up that there was no end, it lost political support. Peace Treaty was signed, Americans pulled out of South Vietnam - and North Vietnam invaded a couple years later.
To note: it would have ended earlier had the USA been trained in jungle warfare.
