Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Relationship between News and Peace in the Vietnam War. It needs to be at least 3750 words. However, Ho managed to form a guerilla warfare group known as the Viet Minh, which successfully fought the Japanese. Ho then introduced a new country by the name of the new nation of Vietnam. The French were still interested in maintaining its rule in the country after the Second World War.
The Americans believed that a communist community in the south of Vietnam would lead to the rise of other communist victories in southeast of Asia which was an unthinkable action. Therefore, the United States decided to support France by providing money. A fight, therefore, ensued between the two sides the northern and the southern side. The French were worn down by Viet Minh and hence retreated leaving the country divided (Dougan et al., 2002). The northern part of the country was led by Ho Chi Minh and the southern side led by Ngo Dinh Diem. The division of the country into two parts was a temporary decision before the country held temporary elections. South Vietnam sensed defeat and ensured that the elections would never be held.
The United States continued providing funds to South Vietnam in a bid to ensure that the country did not become a communist state. The north managed to form a guerilla in the southern state with the aim of overtaking the military rule and reuniting the two parts of the country. At this juncture, the United States was seen to support an unfavorable leader Ngo Dinh Diem who was corrupt and did not have any democratic commitments. He was however killed in a coup. Unfortunately, the leaders who followed were not any better than Diem. On the other hand, Ho Chi Minh was viewed as a charismatic leader and managed to gain a lot of support from the people (Dunnigan & Albert, 2000). A few weeks after Diem was killed, the president of the United States J. F. Kennedy was assassinated. The deputy president took on leadership after Vietnam was bitterly divided.
Vietnam was divided into two parts in the year 1954 according to the Geneva records as another war in Korea was brewing, so the divide was meant to pacify the states that were involved in the fight. The attempts to unite the two countries after the general elections were futile as a series of events led to a bitter fight not only among the Vietnamese people but also among the Americans, Australians, and New Zealand. Although the Americans intended to keep their involvement in the war to a minimum, they were keen to ensure that the country did not become a communist state.
