Was American involvement in the Vietnam War justified?

  • Whether we were fighting for our rights of fear of Vietnam being full of Communists we fought in the war.

    We have a wall of remembrance what else do we have survivors. We fought hard in the war so we are part of that war.We were justified in that war. Ask the survivors. Most indefinitely. We are strong because of that war. So yes we did drop out but the war is over and is a great tragedy.

  • United States was Justified

    After two US destroyers were attacked in the Bay of Tonkin they finally decided that they should take the war personally and side against communism. They had made it a point to involve their military forces in previous wars against communism and many countries expected their involvement in the Vietnam War because it had become like an obligation to the United States to protect the rights of helpless countries from the growing communist threat. They were one of the many countries against communism but, they were one of the few countries that were fighting wars over it. This left them with little choice as they must either get involved in the war or watch as communism spread due to the lack of physical opposition.

  • Us involvement is justified

    The reason the Us entered the Vietnam war was to stop the spread of communism from Vietnam to other Asian countries. And we prevented it from spreading to these other countries! Even though Vietnam is communist, we did hold off the north Vietnamese from capturing other countries and forcing them to become communist.

  • America: Fully Justified

    If it hadn't been for the Americans then the vietnamese would've surely lost and might of still been colonized today by the French. American lives were lost but freedom comes at a price qnd that is something that has been repeated for centuries. God bless America for their involvement in freedom.

  • Search and Destroy

    Although the front for the Vietnam "conflict" was to stop the spread of communism, in reality we were simply testing new tactics and technologies that we believed would put us well ahead of the USSR if the Cold War went hot. Also it would give us a combat trained officer core that would give the US a massive edge in leadership on the battlefield. That would have been a totally unique advantage mind you. More to the point we used search or seek and destroy tactics to selectively inflict massive casualties in pinpoint conflicts that generally led to huge losses of valuable materiel along with the trained or specialized crews. Unfortunately the US was out to prove a misguided point as well, which for the militarily educated really serves as the only reason to disapprove of the war. We wanted to show the communists that we were willing to sacrifice men and money on a rather "pointless" cause if you will. Had our worst Cold War nightmares come to reality the war would have been anything but pointless, but seeing that it didn't, our willing sacrifice looks as vein as it really was. I fully agree with our war in Vietnam from a Military perspective, but seeing as how it was presented to the public, and remembering all the misguided lies that we're told, it's hard to agree beyond that. To add to all the chaos that the war caused, we had a largely uneducated public in terms of global military conflict, so trying to explain a tactical war to a group that is ignorant to the specific uses of said war is pointless. Especially when there were radical leftist a supporting a mislead public.

  • It was justified

    We were justified because we were trying to show people that we were not going to just nit protect what is ours. We didn't want the world to have any more communist. We were thinking about what would be the best for the future. So the united states were justified.

  • They were right

    Cause im simon an i say oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo get wrecked scrub
    you might be thinking what is this guy doning with his life well i do what i want an say what i want cause im simon an i say what i want to when i want to ok scrub rekted

  • No It Wasn't

    They had no reason to be there. Vietnam did not even ask for help. Also, there was a giant anti-war movement going on back home so they weren't making any body happy or proud. It was generally President Nixon's fault because he extended the war just to win and be president, because of his promise to "End" the Vietnam "War"

  • Probably not looking at the people that served

    The few soldiers I know that were in that war have had terrible post traumatic stress.

    It was a long hard fought battle that would have better served though avoiding it all together, it hurt the country and caused many problems here at home.

    I think the world then and now would have been better if some agreements would have been made during that time with Vietnam instead of going to war with them.

  • No, what war is ever justified?

    When is war ever justifable? Vietnam was never an offically declared war. It was not worth killing over 50,000 Americans for the sake of patriotism, power, and money. War is not needed to prove any patriotism. The draft was active during this time, too, which took a toll on many families. War hurts everyone. It is not needed to promote patriotism.

  • No, The U.S. Involvement in Viet Nam was not justified

    What started out as a police action ended up as a 23-year undeclared war that killed 58,000 Americans. It was simply a war for the sake of the military/industrial complex. Eisenhower said that an economy built on war is bound to fail, and that is what the U.S. has become...an economy built on war, where the military/industrial complex controls how we spend our money. There was nothing to gain from the toll that Viet Nam took on our country. It scarred us in ways that can never be healed. Having grown up in the Viet Name era, I can truly so no, this war was not justified for any reason other than to line the pockets of the military industrialists.

  • No, America's involvement in the Vietnam War was politically motivated

    I do not believe that the United States' involvement in the Vietnam War was justifiable, but rather a politically motivated strategy and an attempt to gain an edge in the Cold War against the Soviet Union and its communist allies. Vietnam, at no point, served as a viable threat to the United States or its allies.

  • The Vietnam Anti-War

    We should never have went to war at all with Vietnam. The United States stands for freedom, liberty, and of course independence to all which was not lived by when starting this disgusting battle that ended the lives of 58,000 Americans. This war was simple false accusations by the United States thinking that the leader of Vietnam Ho Chi Minh was supposedly communist tho he was actually now he was democrat but the United States assumed the Domino Theory would come into play or that there would be a communist take over that is why in the United States eyes they were doing the right thing by going to war against Vietnam when they clearly were not. As well no one supported the United States being in the war.

  • It was all about power, money, and too much pride.

    There was never any wreckage found of the US naval vessel that was supposed to have been hit off the coast of Vietnam. We tried and fail to do what the communists tried to do during the Cuban Crisis. Our government officials and military leaders wanted to have a missile base close to China, to control the region and the Cool War. The US felt that since we were able to illegally take Hawaii from the empire of Japan with our military strength, we could do the same in Vietnam and the United Nation will look the other way again. What we forgot is that Vietnam was/is a country that at the time has been fighting and occupied most of its existence by larger and more advanced countries. We were taught the hard way to respect the small nation. Its a shame so many lost their lives for our arrogance.

  • Vietnam today peaceful

    Watch the PBS series and you find out that in 1965 there would not be a military solution with the US involved. The US was always looked at as foreigners by the people of Vietnam. The south keep having corrupt leaders that we supported. All the people wanted was one county and now they have it and are doing better than when the French and US where there.

  • American involvement in the Vietnam war was fundamentally unjustifiable

    There are two main reasons for American involvement in the Vietnam war, to counteract the spread of Communism, and to test their superior firepower. Yet their justification for this was to protect the democracy of South Vietnam, however in denying the people's right to independence and to determine their own government, the most basic tenets of Human Rights and democracy, America destroyed their moral integrity for the justification of this war. Despite America's perceived need to protect themselves and Western society from the spread of communism, they were unjustified in their involvement in the war.
