Vietnam itself was never a threat to the United States. The operative philosophy was the "domino theory" which held that if communists took over South Vietnam, they would then immediately begin subverting neighboring countries, and when they took them over they would subvert their new neighbors, and so on like a line of dominoes.

Not to the "nation" (country) of the US. But the North was attacking the South...and the US was determined to stop them.

Laos may not be as industrialized as Vietnam is; Vietnam learned much from the US.

Yes, they were closer to the communist threat than the US was. And they knew it.
