Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 21, 1965, Mason City, Iowa Build An AP Kfews Analysis By JOHN MHIGHTOWER AP Special WASHINGTON AP per haps the most critical question theVietnamese conflict poses to President Johnson is how to send about 100000 more US troops into South Viet Nam in the next several months without taking over the aoUCommunist war For years the 7 official US stance in the Southeast Asian conflict has been one of advising and assisting the South Viet namese forces in the defense of their own land As American forces have grown in number and have moved into attack operations against the Viet Cong guerril las this formal policy position has appeared to some officials to become increasingly inad equate Theiproblem seems certain to grow more difficult as the num bers and actions of US forces increase One specific issue which arises in this connection is the issue of command as the Unit ed States assumes larger and larger responsibilities for the conduct of the war Some kind of joint structure would appear put war in to be a logical necessity The roles of US and Vietnamese forces would appear 19 be in creasingly those of allies In a joint command system the Unit ed States with its greater ulti mate resources of arms and men would surely have to as sume primary responsibility Top administration policy makers however are reported extremely reluctant to take any such step The aim the United Stales in fighting in South Viet Nam is to preserve that coun trys opportunities for freedom and independence from Commu nist domination In this sense in the larger political meaning of the war the fight really is considered here to be a South Vietnamese fight and whatever widening part is played by US forces will still be direcled loward Ihe preservation of South Viet Nam U and not to any enhancement of the US position in Southeast Asia In addition there are immedi ate questions of morale and of measures to encourage the South Vietnamese leaders and the people whose support they can command to continue to take primary responsibility not only in the military but in the political fields The dominant idea of Ihe Johnson administra tion in planning expanded mili tary pressures on the Commu nists is to try to encourage and reinforce South Viet Nams sense of independence and self reliance How this can be done in ac tual practice will be considered by Johnson and his top military and diplomatic advisers in con ferences beginning Wednesday upon the return from Saigon Secretary of Defense Robert S McNamara and Ambassador designate Henry Cabot Lodge Administration officials no doubt that the President will order very large increases in the number of US forces in South Viet Nam As these in creases become effective they may radically alter the of the war in the sense that American forces willundertaka more and more attack tions against the Viet Cong McNamara Force ratio in Viet off Is totally unacceptable WASHINGTON W President Johnson and Secretary of De fense Robert S McNamara sat down Wednesday for a fulldress conference on Viet Nam sur rounded by a topdrawer col lection of administration of ficials McNamara returned Wednes day

the White House said Wednesdays meeting was not a decisionmaking session but one of deliberations Press Secretary Bill D Moycrs said it may bie some time perhaps a matter of days before the deliberations and dis cussions are finished and any announcements of results can be made for the time being the ques tion of increased US military reinforcements in Viet Nam and the possible expansion o the draft and calling up ol reserves were left in suspension McNamara said that he Am Henry Cabo and Gen Earle G Wheel cr Army chief of staff who ac comoanied him on the trip wouldreport to govcrnmen officials this morning McNamara told newsmen tha the Viet Cong guerrillas nov total about 1G5000 and that thi coinnares with about 50p00 South Vietnamese goverrirhen forces i y Officials
