How did Australia respond to the domino theory?
In Vietnam War
The domino theory was a foreign policy theory, promoted by the government of the United States, that speculated that if one land in a region came under the influence of communism, then the surrounding countries would follow in a domino effect. The domino effect suggests that some change, small in itself, will cause a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on in linear sequence, by analogy to a falling row of dominoes standing on end. The domino theory was used by successive United States administrations during the Cold War to justify American intervention around the world.

The domino theory refers to any chain of events set off by a singleevent. The Domino Theory is simple. One country falls to a foreigninfluence, in turn the country next to it falls, and then that onecauses another country to fall etc. until all the countries in thearea have fallen. The example cont…ributed above is the classic given for the DominoTheory. If you're wondering why it was related to the Cold War, itwas because the Soviet Union used this technique to get all thecountries in Europe to be communist, and they were successfulbecause no one would decline them because they were a world superpower and they knew they would be attacked if they did decline.

the idea that if a nation falls under communist control nearby nations will also fall under communist control
The fact is that the Domino Theory HAS worked fine and we are using it in our day to day accident prevention programmes. It is a grand theory which gives one the freedom to adopt a multi-pronged approach to accident prevention.For IMMEDIATE solutions, one needs to remedy the 'unsafe acts/unsafe' con…ditions. If there is greater determination, one tries to remedy the 'faults of persons' thro' safety education/training, or thro' psychological approaches, or by improving the work-environment. For best results, one needs to to go right up to the ancestry ( genetic/ congenital defects) and the social environment e.g. high road accidents are due to the fact that driving licences can be purchased ! and there is no thorough driving test or written test. This is a result of the social environment .Colour blindness can be remediedby retinal transplantation . Stem cell technology can help to remove several defecys. The Domino Theory is really a masterpiece and I adore it1 However, like any theory, it has a shortfall. It does not say anything about making the SYSTEM safe.. I have done quite a bit of study on this theory and am satisfied with it. Note that this answer is with respect to H.W.Heinrich's Domino Theory , and not Dwight Eisenhour's.. -- S. Saran (MORE)
The Domino Theory described the political ideology during the Korean War, that if South Korea fell to the Communists, the other free states of Southeast Asia would fall to Communism as well.
The Domino Theory hypothesised that the fall of Vietnam to communism would act like a 'domino', inciting communist revolutions throughout Southeast Asia.
The domino theory was based on neighboring Asian countries falling to or going to a communistic country , known as a basis for the Korean / Vietnam war. If one country was lost the others would fall as a line of dominoes do.
Dwight D. Eisenhower referred to the "domino theory", although he didn't use this expression, a news conference on April 7, 1954 in reference to Indochina. (reference Wikipedia)
If one country falls to communism, the communists will know that they can succeed; and if they see that the US cannot, or will not intervene, then they will know that they might succeed with another country...and then another one, and so forth.. Eisenhower explained the domino theory , in which h…e likened the countries on the brink of communism to a row of dominoes waiting to fall one after the other. "You have a row of dominoes set up," the president said. "You knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is the certainty that it will go over very quickly." (MORE)
There is no difference. It would have been more difficult to get involved in Vietnam WITHOUT the domino theory.
If South Vietnam fell, then it's next door neighbor Cambodia would fall, then Laos, then Thailand, then Burma, Pakistan, India, etc.
The US was worried that if Vietnam fell to communism it would leadto a domino effect. It was believed that nearby countries wouldalso become communist as a result.
The Americans were essentially worried that if Vietnam fell to the communists, then so would other Southeast Asian countries, just like a line of dominoes. The USA then stepped in to prevent South Vietnam from falling to the north.
The united states had supported France in Vietnam. With the defeat of the french, the United States saw a rising threat to the rest of asia. President Eisenhower described this threat in terms of the domino theory.
It was President Dwight D. Eisenhower "coins one of the most famousCold War phrases when he suggests the fall of French Indochina tothe communists could create a "domino" effect in Southeast Asia."This domino theory became the way of thinking toward Vietnam.
The domino theory applied to the United States being involved inVietnam because communism was starting to take over Southeast Asia.Laos and Cambodia also became affected by the war in Vietnam.

Domino theory is important because if one country fell that meant that others would fall in the aftershock. America could not allow this because they were trying to stop communism not have other places pick it up. So the Lyndon Johnson who was the president then that he would help the south Vietnam …to defeat the north so they don't fall into communism but it all went wrong with many people getting hurt and killed in the south they decided that when election came by so they could choose between communism or capitalism that they would choose communism as that seemed the better choose. but what they did not know that there would be bombings that would stop the election so they could not choose. So if the domino theory was correct then when one powerful country fell into communism that all the country's it has ties too would fall to. (MORE)

It speculated that if one land in a region came under the influence of communism, then the surrounding countries would follow in a domino effect.
answer: The theory that if one nation goes under Communist control, neighboring countries will do the same.
because lots of people played dominoes in casinos and home games. The mafia was involved in gambling and racketeering
At the beginning of the Cold War between America and Communism. During the 1950's predominantly, as it was the prime reason for Americas involvements in such external affairs, however, the expression carried of being used in to the 1960's and is still used today to represent a point.
it justified it because NATO didnt want communism in all of southern Asia.What we belived was that if we did nothing, communism would go through Asia and eventually the world.
The notion of Domino Theory is when an event in one country c0uld start similar events in neighbouring countries: When you knock over the first one, what will happen to the last one.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower was the leader to believed in thedomino effect. The domino theory dominated U.S. thinking aboutVietnam during the Cold War.
The Domino Theory was the thought that if a country fell to Communism other countries would as well. Just like dominoes one after the other they fall.
Based on his strong support for the war in Vietnam, he must have had at least some belief that the domino theory was valid.
No. 'Domino theory' was the worry that if a country became communist, those surrounding would also become so; then those surrounding them, and so on. The Iraq war was a combination of bad politics and warmongering, inspired by the greed for oil.
The domino theory was used from the 1950's through the 1980's in the US to justify various military engagement, most notably in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. The concern was that if communist regimes in North Korea and North Vietnam completely took over their respective countries, they would spread …throughout south-east Asia. (MORE)
The Domino Theory dealt with the idea that if any country fell to Communism, all the surrounding countries would also fall to Communism, like dominoes. The following is a quote from President Eisenhower in 1954: "Finally, you have broader considerations that might follow what you would call the "…falling domino" principle. You have a row of dominoes set up, you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is the certainty that it will go over very quickly. So you could have a beginning of a disintegration that would have the most profound influences." (MORE)
When the cold war ended in '90. The official paper work may have been signed in 1991.
The domino theory supported an interventionist foreign policy. The US feared to allow any single nation to become communist since that was expect to lead to a whole series of communist take overs. As it turns out, the domino theory was completely wrong. Vietnam did eventually become communist (and r…emains communist to this day, even after the fall of the Soviet Union) but no other countries became communist as a result, and indeed, global communism is almost extinct.

The domino theory was a foreign policy theory during the 1950s to 1980s, promoted at times by the government of the United States, that speculated that if one land in a region came under the influence of communism, then the surrounding countries would follow in a domino effect. From the late 1950s t…o 1975, the United States fought in its only war that did not end in a U.S. victory. During this war, the actions that fulfilled the policies of the United States changed often over the course of four presidents and about eighteen years. America started to slide down a slippery slope of military involvement - it launched the MAAG: Military Assistance Advisory Group. Then, in 1953, Dwight D. Eisenhower was inaugurated as President. As he sends more and more monetary aid to the French, he coined the phrase "domino effect." Simply put, the domino effect stated that if one Southeast Asian country fell to communism, then all of Southeast Asia would fall. And to that end, Eisenhower said, "â¦The possible consequences of the loss of free countries in Southeast Asia are just incalculable to the free world." Many succeeding presidents used this term to justify their increasing involvement in Southeast Asia. (MORE)

That communism was a monolithic force, out to dominate the whole world. We often labeled opponents communists who were really more nationalist.
This was a political term and referred to democratic governments falling like dominoes to Communist influence.
The Domino Theory, as stated by President Eisenhower in regard to Southeast Asia, stated that the practice of Communism in one country would cause nearby countries to fall to the "spread" of communism, like a series of falling dominoes. However, the accuracy of this theory is still under debate, eve…n today. On one hand, the theory is supported by the fact that South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos all became Communist nations after America pulled troops out of Vietnam, thereby "preventing" the proliferation of Communism. This seems to support the theory, as without American intervention, several neighboring countries established Communist governments, all one-after-the-other. However, on the other hand, Communism did not spread any farther than that, even though Eisenhower had claimed that it would. The fact is, other countries in the region, such as Indonesia and Thailand, remained untouched. The American government was worried about a unified Communist block that would extend through Asia via the Domino Theory, but this was also disproven when two Communist nations, Cambodia and Vietnam, waged war against each other, thereby shattering beliefs that Communism in Southeast Asia was a unified network of countries.

The Domino Theory is the term given to the "Wests" fear of the spread of Communism, it was believed at the time that if one Asian Country like Vietnam for instance were to fall to "The Communists" that the country next to it would also likely fall and the cycle would continue until the whole world w…as engulfed in communism, just like a Domino effect. The Truman Doctrine which was announced in a speech by President Harry S. Truman in 1947 would become the basis for America's foreign policy during the Cold War. Even though the speech originally called for the "West" to support Greece and Turkey in their resistance against the communist regimes trying to gain power in their own countries. This doctrine stated that America would help any nation resisting Communism. How does this tie in with the Cold War and the Domino theory? It's simple, as the Cold War was a battle between Ideology's (Democracy vs. Communism) America set out to stop the spread of communism, especially in Asia, in places like Vietnam (Stopping the Domino Theory from ever becoming a reality). This therefore created conflicts such as the Vietnam War which were part of the global "Cold War" period. Hope it makes sense, was rather tired while typing this :/ (MORE)

Australia does not have wildfires: it has bushfires . Schools which were in the path of the bushfires were evacuated. They had notice of the potential danger of the fires.

Very much so.

Sadly, it was, but to a very limited extent. When the US pulled out of South Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos fell to the communists, but it did not spread much further. Thailand, Malaysia, and other other Southeast Asia nations did not. So in that sense, the entire region did not fall, only the countries… in the immediate vicinity of South Vietnam. (MORE)
