The Vietnam war was unjustified by lots of Americans because we had no personal interest in the conflict. North Vietnam wanted to spread communism into South Vietnam. At first French was supporting the South Vietnam to resist from the spread of communism. Unfortunately the French wanted additional help and Americans troops were on the ground fighting guerrillas. There were large amount of causalities in both side. If this war happened today USA will have UN involved in peace resolution. US and France acted alone to defend the South Vietnam and from passing communism around. Today we might even accept the ideology of communism to be a type of political structure used to lead a country.
