The Eisenhower administration provided South Vietnam with money and advisors to help stop the threat of a North Vietnamese takeover of the South. The United States also was pledged by treaty (SEATO) to aid the member nations in southeast Asia, if they were attacked by a foreign (communist) power. Following the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations, President Lyndon B. Johnson also believed in containment and the domino theory.
