containment of communism
bye; Cora Awanjo
what is communism?
What is communism? Communism is a government system in which there is no
social class, and everyone is equal.The idea of communism descended from Karl
Max. Money is distributed equally among the people and no one is richer than the next.
Today there are currently 5 countriens on the earth that are communist those
countries include North Korea,Vietnam,China,Cuba,and Laos.
Mao Zedong and his wife banned all religious beliefs and thoughts. His
wife controlled the chiniese culture and society. Together they abolished
everything that wasn't communism and put rebellious thoughts in the citizens.
He threatened to kill or punish anyone who disobeyed him.
the great leap foward
Mao Zedong wanted to make his government powerful, and he believed
that industrializing china was the way to do so. He accomplished this by
taking the farmers off the farm and making them work in factories. By doing
this he left no one to take care of the farms and plant crops, over time
with the lack of food china's population stared to decrease due to famine
many people died of starvation.
Mao Zedong and the red army were forced out of south korea by
Chiang Kai Shek. During this Mao created the C. with his red army,
and they continued ther 6000 mile march along the path of the
march they gained many followers agreeing to the concept of
communism. When he had gained enough followers he invaded
north korea and turned them communist during this process
93,000 people were killed
mission contain communism
Did the U.S. attempt on containing communism successful? I believe
our attempt to contain communisM was successful beacause in the
current day there are only five communist countris globally and
some of those countries are struggling to change the government
or at least improve it.
the korean war
communist north korea attempted to invade south kore in order
to convert ther government, the us got involved because of the fear
of the dominothoery. the domino theory is a theory stating that
if one countries falls to communism surrounding countries
will also become communist. even with the help of china north korea was unsuccessful in invading south korea
the vietnam war
Vietnam was also divide into two parts the noth communst
aide nd the south non communist side. once again the north
tries to comquer the south and turn it communist and once
again the us got involved.but because of the dvantages of north
Vietnam the us withdrew from the war.the north used stuff as the
hochi minh trail and gruilla tactics to fight the south.they soon won and converted the south side of vieetnam to a communist place
