April 7, 1954 – Dwight D. Eisenhower gives his "domino theory" speech during a news conference. The domino theory was a theory prominent from the 1950s to the 1980s, that speculated that if one country in a region came under the influence of communism, then the surrounding countries would follow in a domino effect. The domino theory was used by successive United States administrations during the Cold War to justify the need for American intervention around the world.
The US believed in the Domino Theory and thought that if one country fell to communism the surrounding countries would follow suit. The US used this theory to justify the atrocities of Vietnam stating that they were fighting for the survival of democracy. Democracy at what cost? The lost of millions of lives? Including innocent women and babies?
