Out of that war twenty-one American soldiers that were prisoners of war, will fail to repatriate to America, and they will move to china. Was this along with the betrayal of this country by the Rosenberg’s an indication of the direction that this country was heading? I think it was.

How did Ho Chi Minh's army defeat the USA in the Vietnam war? In March 1965, US President Lyndon Baines Johnson gave order to send 3,500 marines to South Vietnam and consequently started America's involvement in the Vietnam war. In short, the main reason that Johnson, Nixon and Kennedy continued to involve the USA in the Vietnam war, was to stop the spread of communism.

“Our prime purpose in our life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don't hurt them” - Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama is a buddhist monk who lives a life of joy and peace by helping others, to try and allow one to be the best person one can be. Sophocles shows in the play Oedipus Rex that it is human nature to want the best for one another.
