    Since your assignment seems to be about the 50s, you should talk about the Korean War which started in 1950. We didn't get involved in Vietnam until late 1959.

    These sites will help you.

    this is what foud for the answer to How did the United States become involved in Southeast Asia?
    ----------------------------------------

    •Inititally to assist its ally, France, in their struggle to maintain their colonial holdings in Vietnam.

    •Subsequently, to honor treaty obligations with the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).

    •Involvement was thought to be necessary to prevent communism from taking control completely in that area (see The Domino Effect).



    now i do not know what else to talk about it has to be 6-9 slides. i already talked about the domino theory.

    Yes, you're right. I probably threw you off by suggesting you talk about the Korean War. However, since Korea is in east Asia, not southeast Asia, your assignment doesn't involve Korea.

    This site, among those suggested by GuruBlue, explains in more detail how we got involved in southeast Asia.
