Why did President Truman refuse Hos requests for help against the French?

Why did the United States government take on the fight against Ho Chi Minh and his followers after the defeat of the French?
Ho Chi Minh and his North Vietnamese Government was backed by the Soviet Union and Red (Communist) China. Armed with war material from those two countries, Ho Chi Minh led his country in a war to take the Free Republic of South Vietnam by force of arms. The US helped South Vietnam RESIST that attack….

Truman did not want to give cause for World War 3 with China. He was afraid that the soviet union might come to China's aid. The situation could have escalated into a planet- wrecking Nuclear conflict. MacArthur favored expanding the war to China, and may have made remarks about bombing (either …conventional or tactical nukes) the China Wall, this may explain his removal by President Truman. It should be noted the popular phrase ( Mac Arthur"s Bombers) aside- this was even an amusement park ride at one time- MacArthur was a Ground Army general, not an airman- unlike, say Curtis E. Lemay of SAC, or Hap Arnold in World War II, both AF officers. (MORE)

The American victory at the Battle of Saratoga convinced France to become an ally of the United States.
originally the Americans were on the side of the Viet Minh. during world war two the Americans supplied the viet minh with aid and money to support their war effort against the french and the Japanese, because they wanted the Japanese defeated and did not like the idea of the old colonial powers hav…ing empire again. the American's did not care that at the heart of it ho chi minh was a communist. however after world war two finished this all changed. the Americans were in the midst of the cold war with communist russia and they did not want any more countries of the world to become communist, as most of eastern Europe was already. the American president, Truman, did not want another country to become communist, and so created the Truman doctrine with the policy of containment. The Americans swapped sides and started aiding the french, claiming that they were fighting for a democratic country, because they did not want to see the communists in power. this ended in the battle of Dien Bien Phu when the french lost dramatically and the Geneva convention agreed that Vietnam shoudl be split into two, the north as communist and the south as demoscratic. so really the general answer summed up is: because the Americans were afraid of the spread of communism and wanted to stop Vietnam becoming communist at all costs.

While it is quite safe to say - " we don't exactly know" - , it is important to remember that Truman came into play at a time when he alone was the only Candidate fit to make the important decisions at the time. President Harry Truman, quite honestly, was hated following his first year in office and… not to mention boo-ed during his pitch to start the World Series yet Harry Truman made some key distinctions that, quite frankly, no one else was even capable nor fit to make... and he called some substantial bluffs on just about every world leader of the day. Such character traits paved the way for America to seal the victory, if you will. Historians have said many times that every so many years an individual comes along at the appointed time, and I do mean appointed, to help shore and sustain a faltering nation to health once again ... Harry S Truman was one such individual. It is also important to note Truman had little in the way of crudentials and he was not a great speaker in the beginning, but through his ability to - "hit the nail right on the head" - helped to catapult his confidence to speak and not to mention, tell it like it is - even when no one cared to hear it. If it needed to be said he could sure say it - and rightly at that. This world would have been tremendously different if Truman didn't make it to the Whitehouse and Americans, both Republican and Democrat, ought never to forget that. (MORE)

Having found the [atomic] bomb we have used it. We have used it against those who attacked us without warning at Pearl Harbor, against those who have starved and beaten and executed American prisoners of war, against those who have abandoned all pretense of obeying international laws of warfare. We …have used it in order to shorten the agony of war, in order to save the lives of thousands and thousands of young Americans. -Harry Truman- (MORE)

Thorin is a dwarf, and they love treasure. They finally get their mountain and then here comes humans tramping along, wanting a share in it. To Thorin and company, they just certainly could not have sticky human fingers all over their precious treasure. What can you say, they're dwarves!

Im not sure if I know two reasons for the U.S aid of France in Vietnam, but here's one for you: During WWII, when Japan invaded Vietnam, the American troops helped the Viet Minh fight them off, simply because they were already at war with the Japanese. After the war ended, Vietnam decided to declare… independence from France under the lead of a Communist Ruler. This terrified the U.S as the they were trying to prevent the spread of communism at all costs. As a result, P. Truman decided to help the French regain control of Vietnam. (MORE)
