No, General MacArthur fought in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. In 1951, President Harry Truman discharged MacArthur for disrespecting him (Truman) and other superiors in charge of the Korean conflict.

The fight for the freedom of the Philippines from Japanese invasion. The American evacuation of the Philippines was the result of Japan's aggression in East Asia. General MacArthur would keep his promise and did return. Before this happened there was a top secret meeting between President Roosevelt, MacArthur, and Admiral Nimitz. MacArthur talked the president to retake the Philippines instead of attacking Formosa.

he fought with the Philippines against Japan in Australia. They wanted japan.

Because the apparent next step was an invasion the Japanese Home Islands themselves commanded by General Douglas MacArthur. (Instead, the first two nuclear weapons were used.)

In World War II, the Japanese drove out the American Army. In the process of leaving before putting up much of a fight, General MacArthur stated, "I shall return.", meaning that while he scurried off to a safe headquarters in Australia, the Philipinos had to endure the Japanese occupation by themselves. MacArthur later orchestrated a large but unnecessary invasion to "return", and retake the Philippines, many, many Americans (and Japanese) were killed or injured for no good reason, as the Philippines did not to be invaded.

Of course! Everybody has to fight the Vietnam War because they wanted to stop the Battle and they have to show some guts to fight in the Vietnam War.

He refused to salute him, felt he knew better on how to fight the war than the President, he did not feel he had to take orders from the Civilian Commander in Chief, he wanted to start WW III with China, by dropping atomic bombs on China after they invaded North Korea. General MacArthur disobeyed the orders of President Harry Truman, and finally President Truman had no choice but to fire him and replace him with another Allied United Nations American General to end the Korean War in an Armistice in 1953. President Truman was correct. It would have a terrible mistake to start a nuclear World War Three on account of the Korean War, which is what General Douglas MacArthur wanted.

The fight against communism was the general reason (cause) for the war.

Which Vietnam is good North or South

The first country to fight in Vietnam in the 1950's was Indochina.

MacArthur was willing to invade Red China if it entered the war; and use atomic weapons to defeat them. Truman relieved MacArthur of command.

General George McClellan during the Civil War, General Douglas MacArthur during the Korean War, and now, General McChrystal. McClellan was an arrogant, but brilliant general, replaced by the drunken idiot Ulysses S. Grant. MacArthur led the fight to defeat the Japanese in World War II. McChrystal is a supremely intelligent, extremely skilled warrior who had the misfortune and, perhaps, bad judgement, to speak his mind in front of a reporter from Rolling Stone. Whether he was right or wrong is not under debate. In our free country, you're not allowed to think the President is a dunce.

America helped out SOUTH Vietnam. NORTH Vietnam was attacking it.

Air war-North Vietnam Ground war-South Vietnam

Overall it was a battle between South Vietnam and North Vietnam.

Eisenhower sent troops to South Vietnam so they can fight North Vietnam because North Vietnam wanted to take over South Vietnam and they did.
