Like the first guy answer to stop communism from speading to the south to Australia. In your textbook it will say to help vietnam from the vietcong( communist army) and free the country from communist. However, The american army loss from vietcong because of better tactics use by the vietcong such as better weapons- ( The Ak-47), Underground tunnel, financial support from china, weather conditions which is hard for the us army to adapt the frequent rain and also the dense forest. You can also argue that, the war in vietnam maybe involve in experiment weapons such as the “Agent orange”( look it up for the internet for more info) and also business activities such as weapons firm wanted to make money so us must go to war.

After WWII, the US was incerasingly worried about the spread of communism as found in Russia and China. Then the Korean War broke and the US got the UN to enter the war. It fought the N. Korean to a stalemate which did not satisfy the US. When civil war broke out in Vietnam, the US felt that it was another attempt by the commies to spread its influence. It sent U.S. destroyer Maddox to the Gulf of Tonkin and engineered an incident, claiming that the N. Vietnamese had attacked it. Is is now known that the incident did not take place (see http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2261) In response to what he described as “open aggression on the open seas,” Johnson ordered U.S. airstrikes on North Vietnam. From then on, the US became more and more involved.
