    ·Laos, as a result of the Vietnamese victory was liberated from French rule when France withdrew. The circumstances in Cambodia were slightly different. The Cambodian people celebrated independence on November 9th 1953, six months before the defeat at Dien Bien Phu. This was because the Khmer Issarak (an anti-French, Khmer nationalist political movement formed in 1945) who were working with the Vietminh, had control over around 50% of Cambodia. In addition, King Norodom Sihanouk (who had previously been pliable by the French) had exiled himself to Thailand, and would only return when Cambodia was granted Independence. Therefore, Dien Bien Phu resulted in the liberation of Laos, however Cambodia had already become independent and so the consequences of the French defeat at Dien Bien Phu were minimal to Cambodia.
    ·The failure of the French to maintain colonial control over Indochina had profound consequences on US Foreign Policy. “You have a row of dominoes set up; you knock over the first one, and what will happen to the last one is that it will go over very quickly” [President Eisenhower 1954]. China had recently become a communist state, Korea had to be divided due to the communist threat, Russia was rivalling America in Superpower status, and now Western influence in Indochina had fallen and the communist threat was looming. Therefore, the Vietnamese victory at Dien Bien Phu provoked the US Foreign policy of containment, in accordance with the domino theory. Vietnam was to become a battleground for conflicting ideology.
