What different reasons does president eisenhower lay out for why the us should be involved in Vietnam?

JFK was puzzled about Vietnam when it began to creep into his administration. He remarked to one of his staff men, "...strange, Ike never mentioned anything about Vietnam, he just kept talking about "Laos", always Laos...he never said anything about Vietnam..." Maybe...Ike was referring to Vietnam when he mentioned Laos? Vietnam certainly wasn't a big deal back in the 1950s; no one in America even heard of the place before. Only a few more began to hear about the place in the early 60s. It really got into the news after the Tonkin Gulf Incident; "Whats this place called Vietnam?" "Don't tell me were gonna fight another war in some place we never heard of before." "Where is this place anyway?" "Whose the enemy?" "Who attacked who in the Tonkin Gulf...wheres the Tonkin Gulf?" Just a very very small sampling of the talk back then.
