Vietnam Policy Under Eisenhower

The importance of Vietnam:

Although Vietnam is a tiny country, it symbolized the critical pawn in the battle between the communist forces of Russia and China versus the capitalist forces of America and Europe after the Second World War. The American perception tended to the belief that Vietnam’s subjugation by Communist forces spelt the threat of Communist consciousness spreading over south Asia.

The Vietnam Policy:

The American policy towards Vietnam after the Second World war was chiefly fuelled by the threat of the spread of Communism. The vociferous opposition to Communistic forces, advocated by the Republicans, was in favor of extending strong support to the French to consolidate the hold of democracy on the tiny nation. American policy towards Vietnam was characterized by an increasingly tough Republican stand against the threat of Communism1.
