VietnamIt was a civil war - North against south. AnswerIt was and it wasn't. It was about the north and south, like America's Civil war, but then in Vietnam the French and then the American's stepped in.

Vietnam was a shooting war (a hot war). A cold war is a NON-shooting war; a cold war is a "stand-off" between two (or more) adversaries. Technically, Vietnam, being part of the cold war...communism verses the free world...the Vietnam War was a "Hot BATTLE" of the cold war.
