The US and North Vietnam. US jets bombed the north; the north shot them down. (Back and forth; back and forth).
US Military personnel were in Vietnam from 1955 thru 1975.
Discounting the supplying nations (USSR/Red China): 1 against 7.
American involvement began in 1955. The first combat troops arrived in 1965, and we fought the war until January 1973.
about 2 days. i was born in Vietnam so i know.

The Vietnam Syndrome (a nation wide lack of confidence).
As long as he was a US citizen, and as long as he could receive his mail; he was still obligated.
Vietnam was at war with France before the US intervened in the sixties. In fact, they defeated the French in 1956 and became independent, but divided into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The Vietnam war the US was in was the result of the North and their communist sympathizers in the South (the Viet Cong) trying to unite the country under communism. When the US pulled out in 1975, they were successful.
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.
Vietnam is a communist nation; the US is not.
The US never invaded Vietnam.
Because the Vietnam war was fought between Vietnam and the US
The US has never fought with a nation called "Vietnam."
Because no US President wanted to be the FIRST US President to lose a war.
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.
Yes, the US was an ally and protector of the Republic of Vietnam, commonly referred to as South Vietnam. The US was however not an ally of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, commonly referred to as North Vietnam.
No the US was not communist in the Vietnam War. The US fought with South Vietnam against the communist north. and we lost
South Vietnam was considered an ally of the US.
After World War 2, the French went back to Vietnam (formerly their territory) in an attempt to reclaim it, but the Soviets had already taken North Vietnam. The Soviets helped establish Northern Vietnam, and left it to run itself. The French claimed South Vietnam, leading to a struggle between the two countries. The French battled North Vietnam on multiple occasions, but ultimately gave up. The U.S entered Vietnam in order to prevent North Vietnam from invading South Vietnam, but North Vietnam had the majority of support. While the North Vietnamese Army invaded from the North, Vietnamese insurgents (Viet Cong) used guerilla tactics in South Vietnam to disrupt U.S/NATO operations.
One year, same as their US counterparts.
