During the "COLD WAR"; the Vietnam War was immoral to most people...who believed that war was "immoral" to begin with. Example: During WWII, which was a "clear case" of self defense (the Pearl Harbor Attack), people in the US still protested US involvement in that war. The "...reasons about the Vietnam War", would be the same; war is immoral, for those that choose to believe it. For many people there is NO JUSTIFICATION for war.

Critics of American involvement in the Vietnam conflict, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., considered it unjust and immoral.

The majority of people who, at the time, believed that the war in Vietnam was immoral, generally also "believed" that war itself was "immoral." All wars in US history have been protested by it's citizens. A big example was the Mexican War of 1846-1848, in which the present states of California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, were taken to become part of the United States of America. President Polk was afronted by heavy anti-war protests during that war. The settling of the US Frontier by the US Cavalry, the US Civil War, all had protesters against them, often proclaiming "immoral" reasons for those wars. The Vietnam War was NOT a new comer to anti-war demonstrations. But it lasted so long, and drafted so many men, that the protests became unbearable for the White House and the Pentagon. That's what made the Vietnam War stand out.

Unless the US INVADED North Vietnam or deployed NUCLEAR weapons, the war was unwinnable.

Stop communist aggression

To quote some officers in Vietnam, "...the only war we had."

The primary objective of the United States was to prevent South Vietnam from falling to the communist north.

To prevent Communist North Vietnam from taking over the (non-communist) Republic of South Vietnam.

After the Vietnam war the Soviet Union did not attack or overtly support the expansion of Communism through military means. No war stopped as such but Communist agression was forever checked. Stopping the Communist expansion was one of the USA's reasons to get involved in Vietnam and some argue that the war was successful due to this.

Communist Northern aggression; they won.

The Cold War; Vietnam was a "hot" battle of the cold war.

For reasons unknown, even though North Vietnam and the Soviet Union and Red China stated they were communists, and stated their intent on taking over the Free Republic of South Vietnam, SOME US citizens still believed the war in Vietnam to be a CIVIL WAR, in which communism was not an issue. Another perspective from US citizens, was that the communists were trying to take over South Vietnam, and had to be stopped.

Two reasons: 1. The experience was to horrible for them. 2. They didn't do anything there to talk about.

One of the main reasons was to separate the Vietnam War from the French War or French Vietnam War (which is often referred to as the French Indochina War; and lately, the 1st Indochina War). To makes things simple: The French Indochina War and the US (American) Vietnam War, might be the easiest way to remember it.

All of today's jets have guns on them thanks to the Vietnam war.

The war was between North Vietnam and South Vietnam. The US was fighting with the Republic of South Vietnam to prevent an invasion by the Communist North Vietnam.
