I agree with you guest. America does seem to believe everything else to be their business, but believing it to be a right was not the only reason. America and its citizens wanted to be there because of the struggle between Russia and America during the Cold War. Australia and its citizens wanted to be there because of its geographical location. Australian citizens were irrationally scared of the 'domino effect'. This was the idea that slowly all countries in the southern hemisphere, near asia, would fall victim to communism. People (especially rich people) were scared of communism. I believe this to be the same reason New Zealand supported the war effort
I totally disagree with the writer of the last comment, "I think they supported the vietnam war because of there family member is in the war.", it was the exact opposite that is why everyone hated and opposed the war! They thought there family member could die in battle, so as a result the protested the war because it could lose there family members for a war that wasn't even our own fight.

People supported the Vietnam war because they thought that we had a right to be there because the united states think that everything is there business when its clearly not.
