I remember the old Domino Theory argument too. I feel it's big fault was treating "Communism" as one big single entity. The Russians and Chinese were actually closer to war than to collusion for most of those years, and Vietnam has had disputes with China throughout history.

But at least it's popularity could be attributed partially to ignorance; we didn't know much about the Chinese. Bush had no such excuse. Many people knew better than to believe such a democratic domino effect would happen, and that if democracies did start popping up, they would likely produce results we wouldn't like,such as democratically-elected Hamas. But those people were either ignored or ridiculed, and we'll be paying for it long after Bush has gone off to drink beer at his ranch.
