Several books have explored the involvement of American into the Vietnam War. However, this issue still evokes a different opinion in today’s world. The declaration of Vietnam independence was marked by a series of events which included the first Indo-china war that was fought between 1946 and 1954 and caused separation of Vietnam into North and South. However, the United States supported South Vietnam which led to the emergence of the second Indo-China war commonly known as the ‘Vietnam War’. The Ho Chi Minh declaration of Vietnam independence was similar to events which caused the United States revolted for nationalism. One of the fundamental similarity between the two events regards to mental and physical mobilization for the Vietnamese to sacrifice their property and lives to safeguard independence just like how the United States was dedicated to protecting South Vietnam after being subjected into colonization for an extended period.
Another key similarity regards to enlighten ideas based on equality of all men as they are given certain inalienable rights such as the pursuit of happiness, liberty and life. Therefore, both declaration of the Vietnam War and the United States revolt towards nationalism in 1776 were based on the premise that the earth provides equal opportunities from birth and thus individuals must live freely. Both declaration of Vietnam independence and US independence was based on granting people democratic liberty rejecting enforced inhuman laws and also focused on establishing national unity. Notably, the Vietnam declaration of independence aimed at uniting the South and North Vietnam which was divided after the French revolution while the US independence aimed at unifying the patriots and loyalists. Therefore, both the US and Vietnam declaration of independence manifested the self-determination of people to get freedom.
