Topic: Vietnam WarU.S.foreign policy and the Vietnam War (Conflict)
Post WWII U.S.foreign policies beginning with the Marshall Plan, continuing with the Containment Policy, and finally the Domino Theory, had a powerful contributing force in the Vietnam War. At the time, was our government justified in its pursuit to destroy communism, and or communist aggression wherever it posed a threat?

I am not really sure that communism ever truly posed a threat to the United States itself. I feel that we just took it upon ourselves to play big brother to the rest of the world. We have still put ourselves in that position, however since 9/11 we are probably more justified.
