I was watching "Apocalypse Now", could not understand WHY VIETNAM WARS WAS FOUGHT?


Its a wonderful movie let me tell you. Amazing performances by Marlon Brando and Co, excellent direction, great camera work according to its time, but I have really been wondering what was the MAIN AIM of Vietnam War? ? I mean it was part of that BLOODY COLD WAR, But still ?? ? Honest and Broad concepts please.

    Rightly guessed about the movie.

    Why did the US indulged for so many years even facing such huge colllateral damage. Same case now in Afghanistan. NATO and ISAF are joint mil forces but they contain greater chunk from US.

    It was never a full scale war. The Gulf of Tonkin incident was a fraud. To render a reasonable accounting of this travesty you need to go back to the late 1800's.
