After WWII we were afraid of the spread of communism
We wanted Vietnam to be independent from France but it ended up separating us into two sides north and south america came in and tried to help. the norths government system soared after america eft while the southern system failed they soon united into one communist country
After the war the soviet union took over northern Korea while america occupied the south. South Koreans wanted the North Koreans to stop. The United Nations helped south korea while the North was being helped By the Soviet Union and china the end of the korean war came when we all sat down and talked it left korea divided
The dfference between the two is that north and south korea never joined up again and vietnam finnaly became whole again even if their government is still the same the other difference was the fact that the United nations helped out alot with the fighting in korea
The similarities are that they were both wars fought against the spread of communism and they were both split into north and south.
