    There is a lesson for all of us in Vietnam.
     
    — Ronald Reagan

    Vietnam War (American War in Vietnam) was a war that gives people terrible flashbacks between Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball (supported by both the Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball and China-icon.png Chinaball) against South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball (supported by USA-icon.png USAball and NATO-icon.png NATOball).

    History

    Path to War (1954 - 1960)

    After the decolonization of French Indochina-icon.png French Indochinaball, Vietnam was divided into 2 different countries, Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball and South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball through the Geneva Conference in Switzerland-icon.png Switzerlandball, while neighbouring countries Laos-icon.png Laosball and Cambodia-icon.png Cambodiaball received their independence. In 1955, a referendum was held and the chief of State of Vietnamball, former emperor Bảo Đại was deposed and his prime minister Ngô Đình Diệm became president of the new South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball. While South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball referred to capitalism and democracy, Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball referred to communism and authoritarianism. Both Vietnam-icon.png North and South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball wanted to reunify the country, however, under their own regimes. Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball, under Ho Chi Minh-icon.png Hồ Chí Minh's rule, killed literally all the rich people in his clay and established the VC-icon.png National Liberation Front, (or Viet Congball.) and started a guerilla campaign and terrorist attacks in South Vietnamball's clay. On the other hand, the strict anti-communist policies of the autocratic Catholic president Diệm in South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball made him very unpopular, especially among the buddhists. For USA-icon.png USAball, he was fearing of commies taking over the world and believed if South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball fell to communism, it would threaten countryballs like Thailand-icon.png Thailandball and even India-icon.png Indiaball. He started supporting South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball in his actions, by sending him supplies. For South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball and USA-icon.png USAball, they had the technological advantage. But for Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball and VC-icon.png Viet Congball, they had the knowledge of the land. And the Vietnam War began.

    Vietnam War (1960 - 1975)

    South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball began sending his soldiers out to fight VC-icon.png Viet Congball, while Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball tried his best to push on the offensive. Then, South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball shot 5 Buddhistballs in his clay, on the Buddha's birthday, accusing them of being commies. This was just too much, and USA-icon.png USAball sent other South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamballs to make him less angry towards Buddhists, and it worked. However, South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball was still fighting against VC-icon.png Viet Congballs and was suffering humiliating losses, and even was contemplating suicide. However, USA-icon.png USAball stepped in and sent his USS Maddox to monitor signals coming from Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball, it was attacked by gunboats from North Vietnam, and later USA-icon.png USAball used this incident to escalate his involvement in the war. He began a draft, conscripting his men into the army to fight, and then he decided that South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball couldn't do this alone, and so on 1965, USA-icon.png USAball landed at Da Nangball to fight VC-icon.png Viet Congball.

    From this point on, the USA-icon.png USAballs found themselves in a war unlike any other. They were getting attacked by VC-icon.png Viet Congballs all over the jungle, and when they got to the villages, they couldn't understand where Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball or VC-icon.png Viet Congball was, and so they attacked relentlessly. USA-icon.png USAball began bombing Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball during Operation Rolling Thunder and began spraying Agent Orange on both Vietnam-icon.png North and South Vietnamese clay. Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball used the Ho Chi Minh trail, going through Laos-icon.png Laosball and Cambodia-icon.png Cambodiaball's clay, which had a great effect of Communism there, to get to South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball's clay. During the fighting, USA-icon.png USAball was pushed to his limits fighting the VC-icon.png Viet Congball, and he brought in his SEATO-icon.png SEATO allies to help contribute to the fighting. South Korea-icon.png South Koreaball even pitched in. But with China-icon.png Chinese and Soviet-icon.png Soviet support, Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball began hindering South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball and USA-icon.png USAball's progress. USA-icon.png USAball even televised the war.

    However, the USA-icon.png USAballs back at home were getting tired of the war, and hippie protests sprang up across the country, demanding an end to USA-icon.png USAball's involvement.

    In 1968, there was a ceasefire so that people from both sides could celeberate Tet, a traditional holiday of Vietnamese people. However, Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball and VC-icon.png Viet Congball launched the Tet Offensive and attacked many South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamese cities. The city of Hue was fiercely fought over, and this attack took everybody by surprise. However, USA-icon.png USAball and South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball's counterattack was decisive and effective, and they were able to repel the attack. When Hue was taken back by USA-icon.png USAball, there was little left standing of it. USA-icon.png USAball's morale was really low. And more and more hippie protests sprang up across the country. Enough was enough, and he started bringing his troops home and replacing them with South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamballs. However, he was fearful of Khmer Rouge, and attacked him to stop Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball's access to the Ho Chi Minh Trail. But, with more and more hippies protesting against this action, in 1973, he began bringing all of his troops home and ended any U.S. involvement in the South. Two years later, South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball was attacked by Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball, in an attempt to take his capital, Saigonball, before the monsoon season. Without any American help, and with poor leadership in the South, Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball made massive gains in South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamball's clay. A massive evacuation of South Vietnam-icon.png South Vietnamballs started, bringing them to USA-icon.png USAball's clay. Vietnam-icon.png North Vietnamball captured the city and raised Viet Congball's flag over the city. The Vietnam War was now over, and all of former French Indochina-icon.png French Indochinaball's clay was now communist, however, India-icon.png Indiaball and Thailand-icon.png Thailandball did not get affected by communism, despite USA-icon.png USAball's beliefs.

    The war deeply scarred both USA-icon.png USAball and Vietnam-icon.png Vietnamball psychologically, and now USA-icon.png USAball was seen as the great superpower that could not defeat a communist nation with rice farmers.
