Again this may be dependent on where yoi place the beginning of the war in Vietnam. Some place it in the days of President Truman with the gift of a few aircraft to the French, others credit President Eisenhower with large equipment grants, CIA pilots and the first military advisors to South Vietnam. President Kennedy inherited 12,000 of Ike's Vietnamese advisors and added to that along with massive armament grants, training opportunities and naval and aviation assets. Some start the US involvement with Tonkin Gulf Resolution and the peacefull landing of the Marines under President Johnson.

It doesn't matter. WWI, WWII, Korea which has been active since 1950, the Reolutionary War, the War of 1812, Haiti, Panama, the Gulf War, the Spanish American, the Mexican War, the Civil War (which may last forever) or the War against the Barbary Coast Pirates. The longest continuous war in the US has been the war between the American Indians and its invaders.

In the 1960's, the US had more than 10 times the population of Australia. But, Australia partnered with the US during the cold war. Australia's involvement in Vietnam mirrored the US's, but on a 10 times smaller scale, due to population differences. Other nations, other than the Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, South Vietnam, and New Zealand...wanted nothing to do with the Vietnam War.

In a sense, yes, because the root mission of the Vietnam War was to stop the spread of Communism in Asia - or to Contain it to prevent encroachment into other countries.

The issue of US involvement in Vietnam was deeply divisive in America itself, perhaps more so than any other issue in the 20th century. American involvement was also very costly in terms of lives (American and Vietnamese) and achieved nothing worthwhile. Others will no doubt have different views on this.

The war took place in Vietnam because it was a civil war between north and south Vietnam. north Vietnam were communists and south Vietnam were capitalists. Australia's involvement was because they wanted the war on Vietnam soil not on Australian and America and the other countries like new zealand and south Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Spain and Taiwan and ofcourse china

one is a measurement of length and the other is weight. In general you cannot compare.

The US/Allies could NOT stop the flow of enemy men & material from entering South Vietnam, without widening the war with other countries; which also entailed risking the involvement of the communist superpowers. So, the war had to end.

You cannot compare one is weight and the other is length!

North Vietnam invaded South Vietnam.

After boot camp and AIT, they didn't really care anymore (that had been the hard part). Once they landed in Vietnam it did no good to complain about it, it would only cause problems with other GIs. The attitude was, "we're here, lets get it over with."

Centimeters are a measure of length or distance, and liters are a measure of volume. You can't convert or compare one to the other.

User Avatar

Cubic centimeters and milliliters are the same volume. One is length of dimensions and the other is in volume units.

User Avatar

ton is measuring weight while feet is measuring length so you can't compare them to each other

User Avatar

Well, you can't compare a kilometer with a square meter, for a start. One is a unit of length, the other is a unit of area.

User Avatar

You can't compare one with the other. A cubic centimeter is a unit of volume, a centimeter is a unit of length. When you thus have different kinds of incompatible units, you can't add them, subtract them, compare them, or convert one to the other.

It may have been the question of the dominoe theory, and if all of Asia would become a part of the communist realm, no other country could put an end to the red menace.

When the disorder is limited to involvement of the eyes, with no other organ or tissue involvement evident, it is called sicca complex.

President Kennedy had major crises involving Berlin and Cuba. Other than that, he was trying to contain communism everywhere. The earliest US involvement in Vietnam happened in the Kennedy administration.

You can not compare. There are no other similar things.

He has a fundraiser for them on October 7 with a private dinner, but I am not sure what other involvement he has.
