FDR wanted to see the end of European Colonialism.....Harry Truman failed to follow through and supported the French over the Vietnamese.

After the French got whipped....our political leadership saw to it we had our chance to go against a Re-unification of the two countries as a fear the corrupt and in-popular government would lose to the Northerners.

We see how all that turned out!
