What were the reasons given for fighting between the United States and Vietnam?
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.
Most people say Vietnam won because after many years of fighting the united states pulled out of war. So the answer would be the Vietnam won the war. It was actually a war between the communist North Vietnamese and the democratic South Vietnamese. The US decided to fight for the South Vietnamese but eventually pulled out of the war and South Vietnam was overrun.
Vietnam wasn't fighting anybody in 1964 because there was no country named Vietnam. There were two nations, one called North Vietnam and another called South Vietnam. Just like the states North Carolina and South Carolina or North Dakota and South Dakota in America...FOUR separate states! In 1964 North Vietnam became engaged in war with America; after the Tonkin Gulf naval battle(s) in August 1964.
While fighting communism in Vietnam may have been a good thing, The United States was also supporting an criminally corrupt regime in South Vietnam whic denyed the people of south Vietnam much of their human rights and freedoms for which the United States claimed to be fighting to give them. It is a sad irony that the Vietnamese people actually had more freedom under the communist government than they did under the American backed South…
No. The cost to the United States for fighting the Vietnam war was not worth it. The United States gained absolutely nothing as a result of fighting the war. A number of men were needlessly sacrificed. A lot of money was diverted from domestic projects to bombs. A number of highways were never completed because bombs were dropped. The war was just a big boondoggle.
The Vietnam War started in the year 1959.The Vietnamese War was one of the most brutal battles ever fought. It lasted for a period of 16 years. It exact date on which ceasefire was called was 30th of April 1959. The war was fought between DRV (democratic republic of Vietnam) and the 'Republic of Vietnam.' United States of America had allied with the Republic of Vietnam to fight the Vietnam war.
The Paris Peace Accords of 1973 ended the fighting in the Vietnam War between the United States and North Vietnam and temporarily halted hostilities between North and South Vietnam. As a result, Secretary of State, Dr. Henry Kissinger and North Vietnamese Politburo head, LÃª Ã?ức Theọ were both awarded the 1973 Peace Prize. Both declined to accept.
Well considering it was in Vietnam and thousands of U.S. troops died, i would have to say the United States and Vietnam fought in the Vietnam War. Although, there was still a little involvement from the french but that was very limited. In addition to Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia had limited involvement while supporting the North Vietnamese.
Robert McNamara was Secretary of Defense during the early days of the Vietnam War. Robert McNamara spoke to Congress about the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964 and begged Congress to let the United States enter fighting in Vietnam. Before that, the United States involvement was only a teaching mission to teach South Vietnam how to organize and fight North Vietnam.
This will depend upon what war you are asking about. In the United States, the first war to be shown regularly on TV was the Vietnam War. The images of fighting, of soldiers dying, of the jungles and civilians being burned and destroyed, caused a societal backlash against the war. This is generally considered one of the major reasons why the US public, and young adults in particular, turned against the war in Vietnam.
The Vietnam Conflict, popularly known as the Vietnam War (also known as the Second Indochina War and colloquially as Vietnam or Nam as well as the American War or Kh�ng chiến chống Mỹ [lol in English please], the Resistance War Against America in Vietnam) was a conflict in which the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRVN, or North Vietnam) and its allies fought against the Republic of Vietnam (RVN, or South Vietnam) and its allies.

The US fought in Korea to stop the Soviet Union from spreading communism. This was between 1950 and 1953. It was a predecessor to the Vietnam war which occurred between 1955 and 1975. Both times the US intervened in order to stop the commmunist states, North Korea and North Vietnam from taking control of the rest of the capitalist democratic states of South Korea and South Vietnam.
As the Central Powers were a collection of allied nation states, their overall goal was the same (to defeat the allies); however different states were fighting for different reasons. Austria-Hungry wanted to annex Serbia and its Adriatic neighbours to add to its territorial power-base. Germany was fighting to destroy the Triple Entente Alliance between France, Britain and Russia to secure its military, political and economic dominance in Europe. The Ottomans were fighting to secure their…
