You had me till you mentioned Vietnam while the propaganda war was quite successful on the NV side, the america mission was not :win the war" as it was contain the NV forces out of the area including there influence. Something they were not able to do as long with the fact that the overall losses and futility of seeing some 3rd world nation a threat simply because of communism.

In this example it would be far better to see NV as the rakkor and Noxian as the US
Noxian would lose too many assets fighting the rakkor on there turf for land of no real value

the vietnam example was to answer the request for an example of a commander that won in the end even with "very low K/D"

that said, it was within the means for the USA/SVA to win the war, and do so at lower losses to the americans and south vietnamese, but not within the motive... media and politics being what they are and tampering with things, unfortunately.

Once the NV won the Propaganda war both home and abroad the only thing the U.s would have been seen as is Occupiers which is a battle every empire loses in time (any day now Ireland)

Plus remember the first place Ho Chi Min went for help was Us, we just turned him down.

Let's not forget, we also:

had our soldiers hunt, torture, and kill natives for sport in the philipene annexation - some of whom wrote home telling their parents about how great the latest hunts were, placing bets on who could shoot natives from the farthest distance.

the british came up with the idea to use the american invention, napalm, in world war 2, to firebomb german major population centers to see how many civilians could be exterminated, which we happily tested on the japanese, following suit from out british friends.

the list goes on! = D

Not to say that we were in the wrong in either case, but point is the media / politicians like to paint a picture for the citizenry of war that doesn't normally reflect the reality. = P

We can talk military carnage and Citizen congruence all day ranging from Unit 731 in Japan to The Trail of Tears to Saddam supposedly "throwing babies out of incubators"

The fact still remains that in this case it's not that Rakkor are inflating there worth or Inflating the enemies threats, it's more that Rakkr are formidable opponents who control a very distant land of no importance.

It's sort of the Nomadic Tibetan Blood monks, a Little known sect of monks first talked about by Theodore Illion, a german academic who lived in distant caves of tibet.

These guys were a mix of Lee sin and the worst serial killers blended into one. They routinely killed just to test their own skills. why did no army ever fight them? cause who wants to fight a few crazy kung fu killers for a dusty cave?

In lore pantheon is called a paragon of his people so we can't assume that they are all equally as bad ass as pantheon or they would all be league champions more or less. Not saying that they aren't super soldiers, but Pantheon is above the curve a bit.
