Domino Theory came from the notion of “containment” that governed American foreign policy from late 1940s until 1980s. It was basically said that if one country came under communist influence or control, its neighboring countries would soon follow in a domino effect. U.S. President Eisenhower coined the term during a news conference on April 7, 1954.

After World War II and the fall of the Third Reich, most of Central and Eastern European countries came under the influence of Soviet Union communists as part of post war new settlement. Following Soviet Union’s refusal to withdraw from Iran in 1946, U.S. President Harry Truman declared his support for any countries under threat of Communism which became known as the Truman Doctrine as well as pledged military and financial aid to Greece and Turkey to halt communist advancement to Western Europe.

In Asia, following the establishment of People’s Republic of China (PRC) in the mainland China, Vietnam was perceived as a strategic position in the natural invasion route of Communism throughout Asia. In 1950, the U.S. began to aid the French in their war against Viet Minh – a communist-led organization in Indochina.

Economically speaking, the Soviets and the Americans we as different during the Cold War as they were politically. The Americans advocated free market capitalism while the Soviets promoted communism. Both sides touted the benefits of their system and the deficiencies of the other while claiming greater freedom for their citizens. For the Americans, this meant championing the innovation and affluence that capitalism brought; while correlating communism with oppression. In contrast, the Soviets preached egalitarianism among all citizens and portayed the West as being greedy and materialistic.

The Cold War was an important influence on almost all aspects of American society. Cultural antagonism between the United States and Soviet Union had both positive and negative repercussions. Mutual fear between the two countries led to political confrontations; some of which nearly led to world war. Differing economic philosophies resulted in opposing claims of what freedom meant, and economic competition led to massive military spending by both countries. Because of its broad influence, the Cold War was the defining event of the second half of the 20 th century and impacted, to varying extents, almost all American foreign and domestic policy decisions.
