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.
North Vietnam stopped the Vietnam War; by winning it.
The communists were stopped in Korea; they weren't in Vietnam.
The Vietnam War was about stopping the flow of communism. It was NOT about economic trade.
Yes, the Reds were stopped in Korea, the idea was they could be stopped in Vietnam also.
The Vietnam War ended in 30th April 1975. When the US stopped sending troops to Vietnam.
Technically the Vietnam War never ended. They just stopped fighting.
Who said they stopped drafting? The draft wasn't stopped until the end of the Vietnam War.
Richard Nixon.Let's be honest here. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War ended under Nixon (actually, due to the Congressional pressure, specifically the Case-Church Amendment of 1973), but he hardly stopped the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War ended in 1975 with the final defeat of the South Vietnamese by the North Vietnamese Army forces.
The communists were STOPPED during the Korean War. The communists won during the Vietnam War. The impact on the US, is that that was part of the Cold War; and the Cold War ended in 1990.
Vietnam is a country that is divided was in two, North and South. North and South Vietnam was in war with each other. I forgot what the the war was about. I believe is was slavery. When the war started South Vietnam ask the US to help them and so they did. I believe the war lasted 12 years before South Vietnam stopped the war by quiting. Colin, 12 years old
The outcomes were NOT the same: 1. Communists were stopped at the 38th parallel in the Korean War. 2. Communists conquered South Vietnam (winning the war) in April 1975.
No. He stopped how people were being treated
Nixon didn't stop it in '69, he won the election on a "stopping the war" ticket.
NVA tanks invaded the south and couldn't be stopped; that ended the war. (The B52s had been withdrawn in 1973).
i guess they were cool about it which means that they acted normal but they stopped the trades that were going on before the war
:Highlights of the cold war: 1. Cuban Missiles Crisis-Won (communists backed down) 2. Korean War-Won (communists were stopped) 3. Berlin Airlift-Won (we flew over the wall) Lowlights of the cold war: Vietnam War-Lost (Communist North Vietnam conquered South Vietnam) U.S.S.R.
We were losing. We're poor losers. Not too hard to figure out the rest.
1. Proved that the Reds could be stopped; thus enforcing the concept of fighting them again, this time in Vietnam. 2. Taught the US not to invade North Vietnam; as Red China entered the Korean War after the US/Allies invaded North Korea.
For reasons unknown, even though North Vietnam and the Soviet Union and Red China stated they were communists, and stated their intent on taking over the Free Republic of South Vietnam, SOME US citizens still believed the war in Vietnam to be a CIVIL WAR, in which communism was not an issue. Another perspective from US citizens, was that the communists were trying to take over South Vietnam, and had to be stopped.
To demonstrate to our allies and the enemy (Cold War) that the US will back up it's policies with force. To stop the spread of communism, as was successfully stopped at the 38th parallel in Korea in 1953. The preservation of the Republic of South Vietnam, from the aggressive Communist North Vietnam.
To stem the flow of communism. Vietnam was the second battle of the cold war. Korea had been the first; we successfully stopped the communists at the 38th Parallel during the Korean War (1950-1953). The 38th Parallel still exists today.
When the American involvement in the Vietnam war ended in 1973, the United States military stopped drafting men into military service.
vietnam stopped importing hershey's candy bars to the wealthy U.S.A. and also U.S is now running low on whoppers in burger king and the big mac in mcdonalds
President Gerald Ford was the last commander in chief to put a stop to American presence in South Vietnam once and for all in April & May 1975.
The cold war lasted from 1945 to 1990; documents formally ending it were signed in 1991. War consists of a series of battles; the Korean War & Vietnam War were "Hot" battles of the cold war. A war between the free world and the communist world. The free world won the first battle (stopped the communists at the 38th parallel); the communists won the second battle (they conquered the Republic of South Vietnam on 30 April 1975).
