Although communism was a threat to the American institution of democracy and used as the main reason to fight the Vietnam War, the United States was completely unrelated to the Vietnamese struggle and its involvement was unnecessary. The United States simply hijacked a cause and made it about themselves, advancing it for a selfish cause to prove that communism strips away the rights of people.
