  55. I know that during the Vietnam War, it was a lot like the Korean War. I believe that the north invaded the south to turn Vietnam communist. America, believing in capitalism, supported the losing side, which was south Vietnam. South Vietnam was against communism, but surprisingly did not appreciate the US trying to help.
