Why Did the Vietnam War Start?

Answer

Vietnam War started, after the U.S refused to help them run their country, which was then under French. The U.S instead, asked for their help in fighting against Japan, after which they could help them to get their independence. This did not go well for the Vietnamese, so they forced the French out by starting a war.
