French Neocolonialism in Africa

It was the aftermath of French Neocolonialism that got America into the Vietnam War. America needed to prove to NATO countries that it would stand against Soviet or Chinese expansionism. And the opium profits helped grease the skids, as did the support of the Catholic Church (Colonial Vietnam was run by the French Catholics and their puppets), who wanted to protect their colonial profit culture from degradation. This is what people are really talking about, between the lines, when they complain about Cultural Degradation of the West.
