After the Vietnam War the Soviet Union did not attack or overtly support the expansion of Communism through military means. No war stopped as such but Communist agression was forever checked. Stopping the Communist expansion was one of the USA's reasons to get involved in Vietnam and some argue that the war was successful due to this.
