Question description

President Johnson believed in the domino theory. He stated that they should do whatever they could, even if it leads to going into war just to end communism in Vietnam. When he paid Vietnam a visit, he was very shocked to learn that the Viet Cong were controlling almost all of the countryside. He decided that something has to be done and began thinking of a strategy to prevent or avoid the spread of communism. The war began.

During the war, the American troops had the advantage of having the most powerful weapons. The South Vietnamese were highly affected because of the war. Many towns or village were destructed, many women, men, children were killed. In March 1968, one of the American troops purposely assassinated innocent women, men, and many children in the village "My Lai", they thought that they were joined with the Viet Cong, but they weren't. That want all, many other conflicts have happened between the American troops and innocent people. Also, racism has spread rapidly between the American troops. The American soldiers, in the beginning of the war, their self-esteem and confidence was very high, but slowly began to vanish as the war carried on. Many of the soldiers took all kinds of drugs to ease their problems and others attacked their own officers to let them stay out of combat.

If I were to live during the Vietnam War, I would be a dove opposing the war. Many Vietnamese civilians were murdered in the war, and the American soldiers' emotions were unstable to the point that they started taking much kind of drugs and attacking their own officers begging them to not put them back on the battlefield. When people started to notice how bad the war has gone, they wanted it to stop and ask for peace. Almost all of the U.S citizens wanted the United States to have war.
