  2. 2. Imperial Response to Revolution in colonial America and Vietnam The cause teat led for the revolution in colonial America was  not similar. In the United States revolution came from loosely associated  colonies seeking economic freedom from their mother country overseas. In Vietnam they were seeking freedom from oppressing  colonial ruler of France. The United States involvement in Vietnam was to influence  the outcome of the war on the French side against the Soviet Union. However both wars were based on freedom and for  independence. Both the Vietnam war and the United States revolution were  civil wars in the sense that they were fought on land meant for the revolutionaries. Both revolutionaries were met with opposing arguments and  battles over what was righteous based on the leaders in power.

  4. 4. Imperial Response to Revolution in colonial America and Vietnam The Vietnamese revolution was based on three factors, two of which  were international, and one domestic. One major factor was French colonialism. It began during the  nineteenth century with missionary service in 1802 and implementing French troops against the Vietnamese forces. Also a domestic nationality ideology was created.  It was under ho Chi Ming in a communist government that they gained  opposition against foreign rule. The French soon decided they would crush the revolutionary forces.  The united States decided to stick with its French ally.  French forces were unable to hold back the revolutionaries and  surrendered in 1954. The United States then decided to become an ally of Ngo Dinh Diem. He was an opposing claim to authority, which had the United States  involved. The United States provided training and supplies to the South.  This in return caused a greater revolt from the north who were  determined to gain independence under their own terms.
