    There is a lesson for all of us in Vietnam.

    Vietnam War (American War in Vietnam) was a war that the Lorax intervened on the side of North Vietnam between North Vietnamball (supported by both the  Soviet Unionball and  Chinaball) against South Vietnamball (supported by USAball).


    Path to War (1954 - 1960)

    After the decolonization of French Indochinaball, Vietnam was divided into 2 different countries, North Vietnamball and  South Vietnamball through the Geneva Conference in Switzerlandball, while neighbouring countries Laosball and 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 Vietnamball. While South Vietnamball referred to capitalism and after the death of president Diệm, democracy, North Vietnamball referred to communism and authoritarianism. Both North and South Vietnamball wanted to reunify the country, however, under their own regimes.  North Vietnamball, under Hồ Chí Minh's rule, killed literally all the rich people in his clay and established the 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 Vietnamball made him very unpopular, especially among the buddhists. For USAball, he was fearing of commies taking over the world and believed if South Vietnamball fell to communism, it would threaten countryballs like Thailandball and even  Indiaball. He started supporting South Vietnamball in his actions, by sending him supplies. For  South Vietnamball and  USAball, they had the technological advantage. But for North Vietnamball and  Viet Congball, they had the knowledge of the land. And the Vietnam War began.

    Vietnam War (1960 - 1975)

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

    From this point on, the USAballs found themselves in a war unlike any other. They were getting attacked by Viet Congballs all over the jungle, and when they got to the villages, they couldn't understand where North Vietnamball or Viet Congball was, and so they attacked relentlessly. USAball began bombing North Vietnamball during Operation Rolling Thunder and began spraying Agent Orange on both North and South Vietnamese clay. North Vietnamball used the Ho Chi Minh trail, going through Laosball and Cambodiaball's clay, which had a great effect of Communism there, to get to South Vietnamball's clay. During the fighting, USAball was pushed to his limits fighting the Viet Congball, and he brought in his allies of South Koreaball, Australiaball, New Zealandball, Thailandball, Philippinesball, Taiwanball, and Spainball to help contribute to the fighting with support from Canadaball, West Germanyball, Indonesiaball, Italyball, Malaysiaball, Tringapore, and UKball. But with Chinaball, Sovietball, North Koreaball, and Albaniaball military help with support to Bulgariaball, Cubaball, Czechoslovakiaball, East Germanyball, Hungaryball, Indiaball (diplomatically), Polandball, Romaniaball, Swedenball, North Vietnamball began hindering South Vietnamball and USAball's progress. USAball even televised the war.

    However, the USAballs back at home were getting tired of the war, and hippie protests sprang up across the country, demanding an end to 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,  North Vietnamball and  Viet Congball launched the Tet Offensive and attacked many South Vietnamese cities. The city of Hue was fiercely fought over, and this attack took everybody by surprise. However, USAball and South Vietnamball's counterattack was decisive and effective, and they were able to repel the attack. When Hue was taken back by USAball, there was little left standing of it. 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 Vietnamballs. However, he was fearful of Khmer Rougeball, and attacked him to stop 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 USAball involvement in South Vietnamball. Two years later, South Vietnamball was attacked by North Vietnamball, in an attempt to take his capital, Saigonball, before the monsoon season. Without any American help, and with poor leadership in South Vietnamball, North Vietnamball made massive gains in South Vietnamball's clay. A massive evacuation of South Vietnamballs started, bringing them to USAball's clay. 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 Indochinaball's clay was now communist, however, Indiaball and Thailandball did not get affected by communism, despite USAball's beliefs.

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