No, no, no, no, no. HIV evolved from Simian Immunodeficiency Virus, which is found in chimpanzees and other primates.

SIV has a high tendency for xenotropism. Back in the 1930's, monkey kidney cells were used as vectors for establishing cell lines having unique and useful properties as they are used for that purpose even to today. It is thought that the evolution from SIV to HIV happened as a result of an error in culturing, cells for immunization

But this can't be the whole story because HIV has an enormous speed of mutation which accounts for its across-the-spectrum ability to infect cells, particularly those of the immune system

What two problems were faced by the South Vietnam in 1960?

Two interrelated threats faced the government of South Vietnam in 1960. One problem was the threat of an expanding control of its countryside by pro-communists.

Secondly, the Saigon government was under a threat by non-communists who believed the Saigon government was not doing enough to protect the nation from a takeover by communists who wished to join with communist North Vietnam to form one unified communist nation.Demonstrations in the capital city of Saigon and elsewhere would be infiltrated by communists with the design to exploit any turmoil with South Vietnam.

What is the Domino theort?

The Domino Theory as applied to Vietnam and Southeast Asia in the 1960's was: If one country fell to the Communists, all countries in the region would eventually fall to the Communists, similar to a row of Dominoes, where one is knocked over and starts a chain reaction. In 1975 the theory became a fact, when South Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos did fall to the Communists, but, no other country in the region did.
