 French And American Involvement In Indochina
Questions are asked today by Northerners, as well as Southerners who lived in Communist controlled areas during the Second Indochina War, that reveal their total orientation to the image of the United States as an invader rather than an invited participant helping the legitimate government of South Vietnam.
United States efforts in Indochina were directed against the Chinese and Soviets from the beginning to balance World power between the Western Free World and the Eastern Communist block.
The ideas that the Vietnamese had of America were likewise inadequate and inappropriate to provide for meaningful relationships.14 Ho Chi Minh was one of the few individuals of influence in the north or the south who probably understood both the French and the Americans having lived in both countries.

 After the Cataclysm Postwar Indochina Chomsky and Herman
In considering the refraction of events in Indochina through l the prism of western ideology, it is useful to bear in mind some relevant precedents.
The first class of precedents has to do with the ways in which influential segments of the intelligentsia have responded in the past to abuses of state power; the second, with the record of treatment of former enemies after revolutionary, civil or other military conflicts.
The shift of the United States from causal agent to concerned bystander-and even to leader in the world struggle for human rights-in the face of its empire of client fascism and long, vicious assault on the peasant societies of Indochina, is a remarkable achievement.

 The Pentagon Papers, Chapter 4, "US and France in Indochina, 1950-56"
Because the early phase (1946-1949) of the Indochina war was an overt attempt by the French to reassert authority and control over their Indochinese colonies, the United States, although aware that European Recovery Program (ERP) funds were indirectly used to finance the war, refused to support that war directly.
Conditions in Indochina, however, are unstable and the situation is apparently deteriorating rapidly so that the urgent need for at least an initial increment of military and economic aid is psychologically overriding.
General Erskine reported that a permanent solution of the Indochina crisis went beyond military action alone, the core of the problem being a deep-seated hatred and distrust of the French by the population that precluded their cooperation in the prosecution of the war.
