In the view of the US leadership of the time, everything that could be done to prevent the democratic process from introducing socialism to a country and then possibly succeeding in a peaceful setting had to be done. And so, with the puppet Bao Dai in place, the promised elections were put off again and again. Eventually, a national resistance movement, labeled the “Viet Cong” by the U.S. and its puppet, arose, and then U.S. forces, first as “advisors,” were sent in. Then what became the “North Vietnamese” army (again, remember that “North Vietnam” was an entirely artificial construct) was drawn into it, and what became the “Viet Nam War” occurred.
