The limited war the US was fighting against North Vietnam and South Vietnam guerrilla fighters proved to be costly and one that disrupted the unity of the US at home.

Perhaps one of the most policies of the United States to illustrate containment was the Vietnam War that began if full force by US President Lyndon B. Johnson in the 1960's. The war finally ended with US President Richard M. Nixon in 1972. There the US perceived an expansion of communism in southeast Asia. Vietnam was once a colonial procession of France. The French left Vietnam as a divided country, North Vietnam, a communist country and South Vietnam, a non communist country. The North much like as in North Korea, wanted to unify Vietnam as a communist country. As within the US's containment policy guidelines, The US did not wish to conquer North Vietnam, but rather wished to contain the communism there from spreading into South Vietnam. It was a long a bitter struggle and in this case, the policy of containment failed as eventually the North & South Vietnams became one communist country.
