American Politics in South East Asia

I need to create a 6-9 slide powerpoint presentation that covers how the U.S. became involved with the politics of Southeast Asia and how that involvment impacted the U.S. political climate of the 1950's. The presentation must contain speaker notes which is what I am having the most trouble with. I truly do not get politics and frankly don't care much for them so any help on this would be very much appreciated. I just don't know where to begin because our text book does not cover everything that this assignment is asking for and I am not that Internet suavy to find it all.
