Slide 6

1954-63 Viet Cong frame in the South Vietnam to oppose U.S. country building endeavors. Diem claims appointive triumph in South Vietnam in 1956 in a fixed race that disregarded the Geneva Accords. No national submission was ever held in 1956 – the two Vietnams stayed partitioned, pretty much as the Americans sought. Diem neglects to give noteworthy changes while favoring Catholics over Buddhists in a nation that is essentially Buddhist. Diem\'s sibling, Nhu, mercilessly curbs political difference. South Vietnam was basically a conservative tyranny upheld by the U.S., while North Vietnam was basically a left-wing socialist state bolstered by China and Russia. President Eisenhower, seen here with John Foster Dulles by him, picked Ngo Diem to be his "manikin" pioneer in South Vietnam.

He paid attention to a few, yet not all, of the exhortation given to him by the Americans and was consequently disappointing.

1964 LBJ rejects any leave technique and resolves to win in Vietnam.

He, similar to Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy before him, subscribes to the domino hypothesis and the National Security Council Report 68 (NSC 68, 1950) that exhorts against aloof "control" and promoters a forceful "moving back" of socialism. Click here for a decent site to look at, including a 1950\'s guide demonstrating the dread of socialist extension that lies behind NSC 68. Inlet of Tonkin occurrence prompts a Congressional determination giving LBJ a green light to raise the war. This determination gave LBJ war-production powers.

While the U.S. in the long run succeeded in pushing back the assailants militarily, this hostile uncovered that the U.S. did not have as much control in the war as they had kept up.
