Everyone is happy and it is a good day, But this country will soon witness the most brutal war Vietnam has ever faced.
1956-1967 American troops join the war
Vietnam was split in two. The North prime minister wanted to unite the country in one communist flag, while the South wanted a non-communist country
Push and Pull-Factors
I think it's time we leave this country
War broke out quite quickly (FYI they didn't have a trench warfare). The North was supported by their communist allies China and the Soviet Union.
Protesting in America
END THE WAR!!!
American troops joined the war and helped the South Vietnam troops. Other allies of the south were Australia, New Zealand and other smaller forces. By 1967 there were more than 500,000 american troops in Vietnam
The main push factor was governments on both sides were sloppy. Another push factor is many crops and food were contaminated or burned because of bombs. A pull factor was that Americans were willing to provide refugee camps for Vietnamese civilians who needed it.
People in America couldn't stand all of the mayhem and deaths in the Vietnam War. The more American troops fought the more the public turned against the government. The American government gave the public what they wanted and American troops stood down from the war. On 1975 South Vietnam surrendered and North Vietnam won the war.
