Absolutely. The war was entirely based upon the principle of containing communism.
the vietnam forests were gay
The US was at war with North Vietnam (informally-not with documents signed/declaration of war).
Well, it was part of the Cold War, and the rise/downfall of Communism.
North and South Vietnam were in a conflict over the type of government they wanted. North Vietnam wanted communism and South Vietnam wanted Capitalism. If North Vietnam won then the outbreak of communism would be a greater risk. The United States decided to intervein, thus started the cold war. _______________________________________________________________________ Excuse me, but I think that you're talking about the Vietnam War. The Cold War was never fought with weapons, it was a war of ideas between the communists (aka Soviet Union) and non-communists (aka almost everyone else who wanted to get involved).
The Vietnam war was part of the cold war! The United states and various western European countries began a policy of communism. Vietnam (south-east Asia) was part of the communism party (political party, Vietnam) Whilst the United states were Capitalists; they were against communism! Both, Vietnam and the cold war was a fight against communism and to stop the spread of communism! America did not want the communist north to invade the south of vietnam.
Anything after Vietnam (1975) doesn't concern communism. Vietnam was the last straw!
The United States did get involved in the Vietnam war because of communism in Vietnam.
