Depends on the objective.

The primary reason for the US to enter the war appears to have been fear of communism and the Domino Theory. Since no additional countries in the region fell for communism it can be seen as a success even though it was a military loss.

Just don't ask for proof of the theory.
Valid point.

By the same measure, the present wars against ISIL can be considered a success if the further spread of militant Islam can be stopped.

I woulodn't want to bet on that actually happening though.
