Why did America get involved and stay in Vietnam?

A mindmap on why America got involved in and stayed in Vietnam. Good to print and annotate with additional knowledge, e.g. on the 'Public Support' bubble, additional information like 'Nixon spoke to the silent majority of America to vote for him and support the war. He won the next election in a landslide with 60% of the votes; this shows the majority of America supported the war.'
