Why didn't the US just pull out of the Vietnam War?
The Vietnam War was the first US experience of losing a war, that is to say...not gaining a victory; consequently, the US was new at this type of procedure. Therefore, President Nixon tried to withdraw from the war with "honor"; he bombed and invaded Cambodia (1970) and Laos (1971), and negotiated a return of our POW's, and then we departed. Those procedures were necessary, because in part, North Vietnam held probably close to a thousand US Airmen as POW/MIA's.
Because we had just finished fighting world war 2 we came into Vietnam unprepared and didnt know the terrain.
The Vietnam War was the first war to be televised to the public. So America saw everything that was going on in Vietnam and wanted to pull out of the war.
Unwinnable. There was no country named Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The US didn't back down, it simply departed.
it didnt cause it. it actually ended the war
America pulled out of Vietnam because of mounting casualties and public disaproval of the war.
Most of the hippies and liberals did not support the Vietnam. that's why we pulled out of Vietnam during the war. we did not pull out in world war one and world war 2 because america was geared in for the war, but Vietnam, not all of america was in for it.
America didnt really lose the war. It was never America's war to lose.

Containment didnt really start in Vietnam. it started before that..Cold War. But the U.S. went for containment so that the dominoe theory wouldnt happen (other Asian countries becoming communist). Vietnam was like the mountain to die on.
The US didnt really get a great deal out of the war there only achievement was to stop the spread of communism throughout the country and the surrounding countries
