The Korean War (1950-1953) directly influenced US Presidents from (not) invading North Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The invasion of North Korea during the Korean War, led directly to Red China's entrance into the Korean War.

The Korean War and Vietnam War are some of their reactions.

The Vietnam War, as the Korean War before it, demonstrated that the US would use FORCE to contain communism. The result of Vietnam also showed, that sometimes the US might fail in that policy.

The US policy worked. The communists were STOPPED at the 38th Parallel. The policy worked so well, we attempted to stop the communists again in Vietnam. Our leadership at the time either forget, or didn't think it was important, that Vietnam was not located on a peninsula; which prevented us from isolating the communists in Vietnam; which had worked so well in the Korean War.

That policy is called the 'containment policy'. It led to the US involvement in the Korean and Vietnam wars, among others.

The fact that Vietnam was being taken over by a dictator was one of the foreign policy issues that motivated American intervention in Vietnam.

During the Cold War, America's main policy toward communism was on of "containment". This led us in to both the Korean and Vietnam Wars and the strengthening of NATO in Europe.

Because the US government had no policy on how to win the war.

He formulated the "Containment Policy" which dictated that the spread of Communism should be contained within the areas where it had become dominant in the late 1940's. Any effort by Communist to expand their sphere of influence should be countered by the USA, if necessary by force. It was this policy that somewhat later led to the Korean war and in the Sixties, to the Vietnam war.

The Korean conflict and Vietnam War were both conflicts fought as an effort to contain the spread of communism in Asia. The Korean Conflict, while a stalemate, prevented communism from spreading to South Korea, and was viewed as a success for the policy of containment. This also set a precedent for the future Vietnam War, by using military force in an attempt to once again contain communism. Unlike Korea, Vietnam failed to even produce a stalemate, and the Communist Viet Cong overtook the nation.

Lyndon Johnson's policy in Vietnam was to preserve South Vietnam as an independent state by defeating the Vietcong and the North Vietnamese Army. In order to achieve this goal, he began a massive bombing campaign of North Vietnam, known as "Rolling Thunder," and deployed 500,000 American troops to Vietnam to provide military support to the South Vietnamese government.

That is what it was all about, the domino theory that believed that all of Asia would become communist.

That was the whole point. The US was trying to prevent Communist expansion.

Richard Nixon campaigned on the premise of withdrawal from Vietnam. His policy was to extricate the US from the war as soon as possible.
