WIkipedia.org May 2011 The End Where did the Vietnam War take place? Vietnam By: Delaney Lund The U.S. was worried about the Domino Effect where if one country in a region were to become Communists then the surrounding countries were most likely to become communists as well. vietnam was a French colony. After World War II the french hold on Vietnam was weak. Because the U.S. was helping France by paying for its military efforts in Vietnam, when France pulled out the U.S. continued to help. elaborate on cause 3: what cause is most important and why? What if it never happened? Bibliography: Pictures from Google Images. historyplace.com
Washington State History Book
Google Images Elaborate on Cause #2: Elaborate on Cause #1: President Kennedy stated that the U.S. had been "...granted the role of being the great defender of freedom." This statement guided White House policy for Vietnam over the next several years. I think the most important cause was stopping the spread of communism. After World War II all of the Allied countries believed communism was wrong. The U.S. got involved with countries that were threatened with communism. If the Vietnam War never happened then it would be very likely that Communist China would take over the entire country of Vietnam and try to take over other countries as well.
