There is a great possibility that the US presidential advisors produced this source to give president Lyndon B Johnson a speech to publish in front of the US public, one month after operation 'Rolling Thunder', which was a military operation, in which the US forces used massive fire power against North-Vietnamese forces. The aim and purpose of this source is to persuade the US public to back and understand the United States' violence in Vietnam, and to justify the president's actions in Vietnam to his nation. After the Second World War, France found it difficult to maintain control over indo-china. America supplied $1.2 billion of military aid to the French forces but in 1954, after a serious defeat in the battle of Dien Bien Phu, the French government decided to withdraw from Vietnam. At the Geneva conference, May 1954, it was agreed that elections would be held within two years and that in the meantime Vietnam would be divided into two halves with North Vietnam under the control of communist, Ho Chi Minh.
Summary of Evidence • Vietnam War occurred between December 1956 and April 1975 • It can be categorised as a civil war • Resulted from the desperate attempts of the United States to prevent Vietnam falling to Communism • North Vietnam was communist and led by the popular leader Ho Chi Minh • The USSR supported the North Vietnamese troops, whereas the United States supported the South Vietnamese with equipment and leadership • In 1945 the United States promised the French to re-colonise their former conquest, Vietnam • Dwight E. Howard introduced the “falling dominoes” theory, which predicted that one Southeast Asian country after another would become communist if the U.S. did not intervene • The U.S. installed the puppet leader Ngo Dinh Diem, as it was believed that the Vietnamese lacked the ability to conduct a war or govern themselves • The Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) was massively supported ... ... middle of paper ... ...matic issues of the army. A suitable quotation relating to this matter can be taken from Walter LaFeber`s essay in the book America in Vietnam: “The United States never lost a major battle against North Vietnamese troops, but it lost the war because the struggle was a revolution, not just a war.” It appeared that the determination of North Vietnam to win this war was much greater than that of the United States. This determination was strongly influenced by their leader, Ho Chi Minh. On the other hand, fluctuations within the American government weakened the desperate attempt for the “Americanization” of Indochina. Four U.S. presidents were involved during the Vietnam War and each one had different aims and ideologies.
In 1947, President Harry Truman made a vow to the nation, later known as the Truman Doctrine, to contain communism in Europe and elsewhere. President Truman’s successors continued to make the vow that they would do whatever it took to stop the spread of communism and prevent the “domino effect.” President John F Kennedy increased the number of military advisors and Special Forces in South Vietnam but President Johnson made the decision to engage in full warfare in the region. Because Johnson decided to engage in full warfare, it is fair and truthful to dub the Vietnam conflict, “Johnson’s War.” After President Johnson finished JFK’s term, he was in a bit of a “pickle.” Johnson wanted to stay the course in Vietnam but he feared that a military setback in the region would tarnish his image for the upcoming election. Johnson campaigned against Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater and Goldwater advocated for systematic bombing in North Vietnam before invading. However, President Johnson campaigned for restraint in Vietnam.

The political, social, and economic landscape of the United States of America underwent dramatic changes during the 1950s. During this era, figures and events such as the likes of: Sen. McCarthy and his crusade to "root out" communism in America, President Eisenhower's administration and his theory of dynamic conservatism, the government's belief of looking out for big business, and the Civil Rights movement helped to usher in a new ideas, attitudes, and beliefs. The focus of America's obsession with containing the spread of communism during the 1950s was in a large part fueled by Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy. One could argue that for a period of time in the 1950s the megalomaniacal senator was the largest personality in American politics. Senator McCarthy "waged" war against a significant number of people that he purported to have connection to the communist ideology or communist party.
Truman, who was the president at that time, tried liberate South Korea by force without obtaining the approval of the congress. Instead, he obtained approval from the United Nations. This made republicans to strongly criticize the war as well as the policies that were being employed by Truman. In additio... ... middle of paper ... ... Ball, Stuart and Ian Holliday.
