Reason why the United State get involved in Korea and Vietnam War
The Vietnam and Korean was a longest war fought in America history lasting from
1950 to 1975. The war are very similar that both conflict involved a Communist and Capitalist
participant. The U.S got involved in both war in an attempt to fight Communism, the idea that if
one country fell into Communism the entire asia pacific would fall and it will affect U.S relation
with the region, and their provision of economic and military aid to South Korea and Vietnam.
There were however, other reason for the U.S involvement such as their military confidence.
The Korean war was a war between South (Non Communist) and North (Communist)
