1. Explain how the U.S. became involved in the politics of Southeast Asia.
2. Explain how this involvement impacted the U.S. political climate of the 1950s.

I answered the first question I just don't understand the second part. I researched on the internet and read the chapter but I can't find anything. Any help or starter points would be wonderful.

    In the 1950s, the U.S. was battling Communism. We fought a long, bloody war in Korea to help South Korea remain democratic. In the 50s, a war between Communist and democratic sympathizers in Vietnam led to war there. The U.S. stepped in to help South Vietnam oppose the North and its Communist government.

    ok . . . I'm a little slow . . so the Vietnam war was the impact of the U.S political climate of the 50s?

    No, you're not slow. I didn't explain myself very well.

    Our involvement in southeast Asia caused us to be concerned that this region would become Communist. This concern was one of the major political problems in the 50s. This concern culminated in the U.S. entering the Vietnam War in 1959.
