They sure were. Communism was and is (China/North Korea) an extremely persecuting style of governing. Half the world it seemed, at times, was under one red flag or another. What started out as an attempt in Russia to make everyone equal, with equal rights, soon deteriorated into the rich at the top getting everything; and the ordinary people getting the scraps. Secret police forces came to life in communist countries to protect "the system" and yet got so bad they ended up murdering anyone they thought was "anti-system". That wasnt going to happen to western Christian democracies.
The United States certainly justified its actions within itself. Communism, the target of the containment policy, posed a serious threat in the minds of post-WWII America. Thus, containing it and preventing its growth was most certainly justified and the correct thing to do. In the minds of others, such as those sympathetic to the Communist ideology, the US was far from justified.
The US saw communism in general as a threat to their economy since it was based on capitalism
Communism = Bad We accepted a policy of containment, which was 'containing' communism.
Back then it was justified by the citizens of the U.S. because they were afraid of communists and they hated communism. It was an injustice for The U.S. to enter the Vietnam War.
The United States was successful in containing Communism in South Korea.
Absolutely. The war was entirely based upon the principle of containing communism.
'Containing' Communism was a stupid thing the US thought it had to do. The US didn't like Communism, probably because they didn't undesrtand it at all or were afraid it was better than their economic stance, so they said that they had to contain communism by arresting people who supported communism. yeah, freedom of speech and thought...
In certain times and places, yes it was successful, but not every time and every place.
The US hoped to curtail the expansion of communism by intervening in Vietnam.
No; it was based on a bogus theory of preventing the spread of communism.
Communism is the antithesis of capitalism.
Containment; the U.S. policy of containing communism in a certain country/area.
Ho Chi Minh was a Communist. Even if France had not been a US Ally, the US had a vested interest in containing the spread of Communism.
The US responded by offering the Marshall aid this was resources for countries that were under the threat of being invaded by the soviets, by doing this they would be "containing" communism
Because they was, dont worry about it you cheaterrr
Was the US involvement in World War 1 justified why or why not?
His commitment to containing communism
They were both about containing Communism
well they were not successful.
Containing the spread of communism.
Communism did not go into effect until the last year of WW1. It had nothing to do with any of the fighting.
The United States competed with the Soviet Union during the Cold War by containing the Soviet Union from spreading communism. The U.S. did this by forming NATO, a group formed by President Truman in order to contain communism.
