The United States began to send troops to Vietnam to support French in 1950’s. During the following 25 years, the ensuing wars would cost 5 million people’s life and create a series of domestic tension in the U.S, like Vietnam War protest movement and the Military Draft. Even though the Vietnam War had been considered as the only war that American ever lost, but many Americans believed it was a noble cause. Like President Johnson had said in 1965, “We have made a national pledge to help South Vietnam defend its independence. To dishonor that pledge, to abandon this small and brave nation to its enemies, and to the terror that must follow, would be an unforgivable wrong.” But was it really

Vietnam was a Futile War. Do you agree or disagree?
The Vietnam War began in 1957 and ended in 1975. Vietnam itself was a small country in South-east Asia and was divided into Communist-ruled North Vietnam and non-Communist South Vietnam. North Vietnam and a group of Communist South Vietnamese guerilla rebels (called the Viet Cong) fought to take over South Vietnam. The United States allied with the South Vietnamese to try to stop this from occurring, but failed miserably. I firmly agree that this was a futile war as nothing productive or beneficial has been caused by the war whatsoever.

United States' Involvement in Vietnam
The end of World War Two was the beginning of America's worries about
Communism. They feared that it would spread throughout the countries
of the world. Because of this President Truman made the Truman
Doctrine. This said that America would help any nation threatened by
Communism. He said that he would lead 'containment' in the spread of
Communism and the Soviet Unions expansion. The doctrine came from the
USA believing that Eastern Europe was forced into Communism by the
Soviet Union. Therefore America saw it as their duty to help and

The Vietnam War had great political impact and led to deep division within Australian society. The Australian people were forced to take the issues about the Cold War, Vietnam and the arms race seriously because of Australia’s military involvement in Vietnam from 1962 to 1972. As a result, our fear of communism and of Asia increased dramatically.
Australia, occupying a large mass of land, yet having a small population had always lived in the belief that they were threatened some way by the foreign powers and this led to the formation of “The White Australia Policy”, which was set up in 1901. This policy clearly reflects the enormous fear of threats from the Asian countries

The ongoing commentary has been both absorbing and humorous. The first red flag was raised by ratings agency Fitch in August, 2011. At the time, reported system NPLs for Vietnamese banks was about 2.7 per cent. But, Fitch estimated that 13 per cent was a more realistic number.

With regards to Vietnam under Kennedy's presidency, there are many arguments both for and against the idea of commitment trap, Kennedy certainly escalated military involvement in Vietnam but did he have a choice? Or had his predecessors committed him in Vietnam long before he came into the Whitehouse? There is no doubt that Johnson was the one who fully placed ground troops in Vietnam in '65 and created his legacy of 'Johnson's war', but did any of the previous presidents give him any other option except to stay? Also, was there any evidence of any moments when they could've pulled out? The commitment trap theory is widely acknowledged, with regards to Vietnam, by historians as it explains
