Who was the leader of Communist North Vietnam?
Ho Chi Mihn
Southerners living in South Vietnam who sympathized with the Communist North, were the Viet Cong (VC). Communist North Vietnam, sent it's NVA (North Viet Army) south into South Vietnam to fight US/Allied forces. So, there were two basic enemies in South Vietnam: The communist sympathizers (VC) who already lived in South Vietnam. And the communist NVA, who marched from their homeland in the north, to fight in the south.
Vietnam is a communist country because the government controlls everything and they have a central economy. _____ North Vietnam was communist, South Vietnam was not and did not want to be. That, in a nutshell, was what the Vietnam War was about. When all of the western countries pulled out of Vietnam, the North overran the South and both countries were reunified as Vietnam under a communist government based in Hanoi.
Well i would say that before the war they were both together but when the communist came in the area the north and the south Vietnam became two. the south was anti-communist and north Vietnam was communist. then there were the war which the North (vietcong) won. A few years after the Vietnam war, the north and the south Vietnam became one and is now today basically called VIETNAM.
Back in 1959, North Vietnam was Communist. Until 1975 when the Americans joined the North and captured the south. Now the whole country is Communist. yes the north was communist and it now entirely communist but the Americas did NOT join the north. they went into the south to protect them from the communist because they were afraid of communist invasion as was seen in cuba with the support of the soviets, the other superpower…
