    The United States’ role in Vietnam spanned from 1955 to 1975. During the 1960’s John F. Kennedy and Johnson both used the domino theory as credible reasons for the United States to increase their involvement in South East Asia. The United States already supported the French’s ambition to reinvade Indo-China. Supporting the South Vietnamese nation against their northern communist neighbors was a natural progression of foreign policy.…

    The goal of this group was to encourage them to unite together against Japan and France and by 1945 communism dominated in the Viet Minh movement. In August 1945, Japan was defeated by the French and gave them back Vietnam. The Viet Minh reacted by marching into the city of Hanoi and taking power. The French “puppet” ruler Bao Dai abdicated and then invited Ho Chi Minh to form a government. In 1946, the French recognized the Democratic Republic of Vietnam as a Free State, but full independence was not given to Vietnam. The Viet Minh were ready to fight until the end but the French, on the other hand, wanted a quick resolution. The next year the First Indo-China War broke out with Viet Minh choosing guerrilla warfare as the tactic of choice. While war went on in the hillsides, the French decided to establish an alternative Vietnamese government with Bao Dai as head of state. Bao Dai’s new administration, the Republic of Vietnam, was set up in direct response to the fall of China to communism in 1949. Communist China and the Soviet Union both recognized the communist regime of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam. The United States was initially against the efforts of France to re-colonize Indo-China, for their own economic reasons because they wanted to open the area up to free trade. The creation of the People's Republic of China and the Korean War gave America no choice but to…

    In 1949, Mao Zedong led the Peoples Revolution, which established a Communist State in China. Communism has now been introduced to Asia. In this period, after World War II, Communism was a popular ideology being introduced throughout the world. Vietnam was one of the many countries under the threat of Communism. At this time, Vietnam was a French Colony. As time went on tension started to come between the French and the Vietnamese people. As tension increased so did the fighting between the French and The Vietnamese. Finally in 1954, The French decided that they could no longer withstand the revolts of the Vietnamese. The Vietnamese were now free of French rule. However, many problems still remained in Vietnam. After the war there was a conference to discuss the troubles in Vietnam and all of the other troubles in Asia. That conference was called the Geneva Conference. Vietnam sent two delegations to the conference. One of the delegations represented Viet Minh (which was Communist in their leanings) and the other represented Bao Dia's government, which was backed by the United States. Both claimed to represent all of Vietnam. At the conference there was a discussion about dividing Vietnam at the 17th parallel to solve the troubles between the two delegations. Now there were two Vietnams. One, in the north, was under Communist rule and the other, in the south, was not. While the Geneva Conference was being held, the United States was already concerned about Communism being spread. The United States then decided that the only way to solve the problems would be to contain Communism including in Vietnam.…

    In the 1949 election campaign, the liberal party attempted to ban the Official Communist Party of Australia, it was deemed unconstitutional, but showed Australians the government’s fear of communism. Prime Minister Robert Menzies stood strong and continued to rally against communism in Australia. We joined the Vietnam War in 1950 to try and stop the flow of communism as Australia, as a whole, believed in the domino effect where communism takes control of a country one by one. Another of the government’s responses was the ANZUS treaty and SEATO alliance. The ANZUS treaty included Australia, New Zealand and the United States of America, and meant that if one of the nations involved was attacked, the other two were obliged to help. Australia signed this because the government believed that we needed strong allies to protect us from communism. Communism in Vietnam has played a key role in the politics of Vietnam since independence, Marxism was introduced into Vietnam with the emergence of three separate communist parties; the Indochinese Communist Party, Annamese Communist Party and the Indochinese Communist Union, joined later by a Trotskyist movement led by Tạ Thu Thâu. In 1930 the Communist International (Comintern) sent Nguyễn Ái Quốc to Hong Kong to coordinate the unification of…

    The Vietnam War was over the spread of communism in the Indochina region of the world. The French and the Japanese had been thoroughly conquered by the Vietnamese led by a Ho Chi Minh who had an overwhelming amount of support from his compatriots. In 1954 the president of the U.S.A. attempted to divide the country of Vietnam into two opposing governments. Selecting a former Vietnamese official named Ngo Dinh Diem and planting him in South Vietnam to oppose the elections that would unite the country. This was done because an intelligence estimate showed that the election would be won by Ho Chi Minh and thus would give “control of the associated states (Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam) in the region – the three parts of Indochina created by the Geneva Conference to Communist government control.” (Zinn, p. 472) President Eisenhower and the U.S. Government believed that if one country became communist then the surrounding countries would also become communist and this belief became known as the Domino Theory. JFK adopted this theory and kept the policies of former presidents Eisenhower and Truman concerning the Indochina region of the world.…

    During the Cold War between Russia and America in the years 1945 – 1991 another conflict between the communist North of Vietnam ruled by Ho Chi Minh and the anti-communist south ruled by Diem began in 1959. Ho chi minh supporters in the south known as the Vietcong began trying to overthrow Diem’s corrupt government. Diem asked America for help to defeat the Vietcong to which they were more than eager to help as if they were defeated this would mean another communist country would emerge which could lead to the domino theory. This was the theory that if one country feel under communism, all others around it would too. In 1976 America withdrew from the war in Vietnam. There are several factors that cause debate for why America withdrew from the war. These are the guerrilla tactics used by the Vietcong, the American tactics, failure by the Americans to win the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese peasants and public opinion of the war by American citizens. In this essay I aim to show why I believe the American tactics were the most important reason for why the US withdrew from Vietnam and I aim to demonstrate this by comparing these factors against each other and using the sources to help illustrate my points.…
