how did the involvement of the u.s in the politics of southeast asia,korea, and vietnam impact the u.s political climate of the 1950's?
any help is appriciated history is my worst subject
The Soviet Union and the U.S. had emerged as victors in World War II, but had completely different world views. The Soviets wanted Communism to dominate the world and took over many countries with that in mind. The U.S. obviously opposed these takeovers and tried to prevent Communism from taking over Southeast Asia and Korea. We fought wars in both Korea and Vietnam to keep them democratic. We ended up splitting Korea in two (the democratic South and the communist North). We lost the war in Vietnam.
At home, many people opposed these wars, especially in Vietnam. Those favoring the wars looked upon their opponents as being dupes of the Communists. Suspicion reigned.
yes but what was the impact of the u.s political climate of the 1950's?
Suspicion. Part of the country believed another part were Communists.
oh thank you so much i have trouble right now and history is my bad subject thank you
