How effective were the US tactics of ‘search and destroy’ and ‘defoliation’ in the Vietnam War As North Vietnam came to communism the USofA soar this as a threat agent’s capitalism. And if Vietnam “fell” in to communism then the hole of Asia could become communist this is called the “domino effect”. In this time President Kennedy had ‘advisers’. The US were fully involved in Vietnam in 1964 the 4th of august when the NN North torpedoed the USS Maddox in the gulf of Tonkin and the Paris treaty in 1973 followed by the fall of Saigon 1975. Due to the Vietcong’s strategies the US decided to bomb the north into surrendering.
(b) How far was President Kennedy determined to use military forces in South Vietnam in order to stop the spread of communism in Southeast Asia? There is two sides to each argument in this answer one side will show how determined Kennedy was to using military force and the other side would be to show how he tried to use other options. Firstly I am going to describe how I think that Kennedy was determined or willing to use military force. Firstly he started out by carrying on Eisenhower’s plans for guerrilla warfare by training the South Vietnamese army and giving them supplies and equipment to try and fight the war like that instead of using American troops even though he criticised Eisenhower’s soft defence against communism but still carried on with some of his plans. After the failure of that he introduced things such as the strategic hamlets (Agrovilles) which were villages that were surrounded by barbed wire and guarded by troops, to isolate National Liberation Front (NFL) guerrillas from political recruits and other responses.
history. Fearing the spread of communism, President Kennedy committed the people of the United States of America to defending the fledgling democratic government of South Vietnam. Despite its arguably noble intentions, the war in Vietnam would prove the greatest challenge to American democratic idealism since the Civil War. The war was fought in Vietnam from 1959-75, involving the North Vietnamese and the National Liberation Front (NLF) in conflict with the United States, Australian, New Zealand forces and the South Vietnamese army. The conflict’s roots took shape in July 1954, when France was forced out of Vietnam after one hundred years of colonial rule.
Revisionism is one of the three main approaches to the Cold War and its origins and significance of events. It originated in mid-sixties, while USA was involved in the Vietnam War. The revisionist approach puts blame for the cold War on the USA and its policies towards USSR. It also proposes the view that it was President Truman’s actions that caused the conflict. Revisionism contradicts the proposals of the traditionalism and its blame of the Soviet Union.
In Mark Moyar’s, A Question of Command: Counterinsurgency from the Civil War to Iraq, presents the attributes that leaders must possess in order to have more success during counterinsurgent campaigns. Throughout the campaigns that Moyar covers, he attempts to apply these attributes and how they affect the outcome of the campaign and the leadership or their lack of possessing these attributes. These ten leadership attributes: initiative, flexibility, creativity, judgment, empathy, charisma, sociability, dedication, integrity, and organization combined will result in an effective and successful commander combating counterinsurgency. Through the many campaigns that Moyar dissects via his in depth research, he presents why counterinsurgency is “leader-centric” and those that hold these attributes usually come out on the top. Moyar goes above and beyond delving into the leadership of both military and non-military, such as political leadership.
On the surface, this war can be seen as a success for the United States as Communist forces were maintained on the north of the 38th parallel. However, the violence of General MacArthur which led to the attempt of rolling back Communism and his request of bombing China for its support to North Korea had the result of a mutilated success. The Americans had been at first rooted by the Chinese army and the losses of
The War That Changed The Nation: The True Reflection The Vietnam War started on November 1, 1955 and ended on April 30, 1975 (Wikepedia 1). The cause of the war revolved around the simple belief help by America that communism was threatening to expand all over the South-East Asia region (Wikepedia 2). The North Vietnamese government and Viet Cong viewed the conflict as the colonial war, fought against France and the United States back them up, and later against Vietnam. However, the Case Church Amendment was passed in 1973. The capture of Saigon by the Vietnam People’s Army in April 1975 marked the end of the war (Wikepedia 3).
Greer Liguori October 13, 2014 In 1937, Japan invaded China and conquered large parts of China. They occupied this land until Japan was defeated during the Second World War in 1945. The Chinese Communist Party established the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Despite the fact that many did not favor communism in China, the party did unify the peasant class in multiple ways. Between circa 1925 and circa 1950, the relationship between the peasants and the Chinese Communist Party was that the party encouraged the state of the people, involved the peasants in nationalism, also encouraged anti-Japanese sentiment, and favored social
From the Truman Doctrine, the Cuban Missile Crises to the Reagan Doctrine, Nixon was one of many anti-communist republican presidents. However, Nixon was brave and creative to declare that “It is time to move from an era of confrontation to an era of negotiation in relation” (O’Connor, Sabato, Yanus, Gibson, Robison “American Government Roots and Reform” 2011) with communist countries, which include China and the Soviet Union. Nixon was smart to play the “China card”, which lead to change political and economic power distribution in the world. In 1969, the seven months border military conflicts between China and the Soviet Union was a cornerstone to change the relationship between China, the Soviet Union and United States. President Nixon quickly responded to the event.
