This was because hundreds of American soldiers had died in a war they thought was coming to an end. The Tet Offensive proved otherwise and caused a major disagreement between the public and the American government. Many people believe that this almost forced the government to end the war because without the moral support from their own country there would be no chance in another. On the other hand, the Americans actually won the fight and in doing so managed to kill thousands of Vietcong’s, unmasked Vietcong’s, which they had not been able to do very well until this point.
The war began due to North Vietnam being a communist country, while the US wanted to prevent a communist country taking over the south part of Vietnam. The media played an important role in the war, as the media brought the war into the American’s homes, showing the Americans all the realities of warfare. Many things were showed to the Americans.

Because Hutu people were not educated enough, they did not have independent thought and followed the instructions from their leaders. They became crazy to kill Tutsi people in revenge for the long-time conflicts and venom. Their deference to government and blindness
The US in fighting communism, was fighting the wrong enemy, they were arrogant and thought that they knew best. 2. Use of military firepower - bombing villages, towns, the Ho Chi Minh trail.
