The US was an ally of South Vietnam; it was up to South Vietnam to repel the invasion from the north, with massive military assistance from the US (which, of course, ultimately failed).

North Vietnam...not Vietnam. Vietnam didn't exist until 1975.

President Johnson believed that the US could defeat north Vietnam because the US had won WWII with firepower, and the US had the most firepower on earth during the Vietnam War.

1. The US didn't defeat N. Vietnam. 2. The "ONLY" weapon feared by North Vietnam (and the NVA in South Vietnam) was the B-52 Stratofortress heavy bomber (Strategic Air Command).

The Americans did not make war with Vietnam. There was no Vietnam. There were two countries: NORTH Vietnam and SOUTH Vietnam. NORTH Vietnam attacked SOUTH Vietnam. The US (Americans) defended SOUTH Vietnam. The US never invaded NORTH Vietnam (the US bombed it though). NORTH Vietnam invaded SOUTH Vietnam. NORTH Vietnam was (and still is) a communist nation. The US was against communism.

The inability of the United States to defeat North Vietnam reveal cracks in the seemingly impenetrable military might of the country because the United States were suppose to be one of the worlds powers and to have to fall to such a small country's military as the North Vietnam.

The US involvement in the Vietnam War was to rule out and hopefully stop comunism from spreading in a dominoe effect. Which were the plans of the North Vietnames, to further spread communism to South Vietnam.

Technically between North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Actually between the US and North Vietnam.

1. Not using atomic weapons to defeat the enemy. 3. Not invading North Vietnam to defeat the enemy. 3. Being drafted and not doing the above.

The US did NOT formally declare against North Vietnam.

The US. Only the US was bombing North Vietnam. Although American and Australian men 'o war were bombarding North Vietnam along their coastline.

The US backed South Vietnam. During this time the north was supporting communism and in 1976, the countries reunified into the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

Yes, several years after the US pulled out. North Vietnam finally conquered South Vietnam. But they did not defeat the US military! The US in fact destroyed their military, and it took them those several years to rebuild before they were able to defeat the South. In those few years the US pulled out of Vietnam, only leaving forces in some cities, mainly Saigon security forces (which were shown scrambling to leave the city on international news). This is why it looks like the US was running with its tail tucked between its legs, when in fact all major combat units had been gone for some time.

No the US was not communist in the Vietnam War. The US fought with South Vietnam against the communist north. and we lost

President Johnson believed that it was most important for the US to win in Vietnam because communists were spread around the world and Australia and the us feared that the domino theory was becoming true, the only way in which they could stop it was by assisting south Vietnam, to defeat the north Vietnam.

north Vietnam took over south Vietnam

I don't believe the US did invade Vietnam. The US was an invited participant and adviser in an ongoing conflict between North Vietnam and South Vietnam.

The US went to war with Communist NORTH Vietnam to prevent them from conquering South Vietnam.

The US wanted N. Vietnam to stop fighting in S. Vietnam.

The answer is (A) Because the North Vietnam took over the South Vietnam

North Vietnam verses the US & it's allies.
