Re: H-Diplo Roundtable XXIII-19 on Lüthi.  Cold Wars: Asia, The Middle East, Europe

Lloyd Gardner is correct in saying that Lorenz Luthi treats Vietnamese Communist visions of a revolution extending beyond Indochina as confirmation of the domino theory. I do not think this argument is correct.

The domino theory was not a statement about Communist desires. It was a statement about Communist capabilities. It said not just that the Communists were casting covetous eyes on a broad area, but that the Communists would actually get the whole of that broad area, or at least become very likely to get it, if some particular land fell to them, triggering a chain reaction.
