The university campus, the eherroes. the counting houses became sources of tension as the effects of the erect across the Pacific from the of Indochina. The U.S. failed to beat North into submis- sion despite 41-: years of record bombing which cost nearly 1.100 American planes and the lives or about 2.100 pi- lots rnd In addition, more than US. airmen are listed as missing and al- most FOO are imprisoned.

Many throughout the world viewed Ihe conflict as a war of ideologies with the I'.S cnmmiltcd lo beating back communism in Southeast Asia. The late U.S. president. Dwighl D. Eisenhower, said in 1959: "The los? of South Vietnam would sel in motion a crum- bling process thai could, as U progressed, have crave con- sequences for freedom. Military as well as economic help is currently needed in Vietnam." Successive presidents were told the war would soon be I over. It was in 1963 that Defence Secretary Robert S. j McNamara reported to Presi- dent John F. Kennedy: "The icajer of the U.S. mili- tary can be completed by ecd o.' 1K3 That was the year. 1953, when South Vietnam Presi- i dent Ngo Dinh Diem, head of I a government its detractors j said was riddled with corrup- tion. and his brother. Ngo 1 Dinb Nbu. were assassinated. They were victims of a mili- tary coup led by Maj.-Gen. Duong Van iBig) Minh who tcrjk over t h e government with a military junta. Minh did not last long. He was ousted in January, 1964. in an- other military coup, this Lime bloodless. Direct attacks on North Vietnam began in 1954 when U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson claimed that North j Vietnamese torpedo boats, at- i tacked two U.S. destroyers in the Gulf of Tonkin. approved the Tonkin resolu- tion giving Johnson a free hand to protect Southeast Asia from attack. This was followed in 1967 v.iih what Johnson termed the 'San Antonio offer- ing to halt bombing of North Vietnam in exchange for p> duciive tt-lks. Hanoi gave uo encouragement. Johnsons decision not (o seek another term was linked in part to growing public opposi- tion to the war Withdrawal of American troop; began in 1969 when President Nixon said 250.0M would return home that year. He tried to eliminate the idea of defeat. In a visit to Saigon, he said the w-ar in Vietnam "may have been our freest hour'." Troop reductions continued. At the end of 1972. U.S. troop strength was less than S3.000 men. But the war continued. Heavy bombing The bombing campaign was the heaviest in the history of warfare, climaxing in a furious 12-day blitz in the Hanoi-Haiphong area in De- cember. 1972. after peace ne- g o t i a t i o n s became dead- locked. About 7 5 miHion tons o! bomb? and rockets were dropped by U.S. aircraft dur- ing the war, more than triple the tonnage dropped by U.S. places in the Second World War and exceeding the Ko- rean War total 10 times. -Air-power advocates may claim that bombing of North Vietnam's supply lies, petro- leum depots and otrrer mili- tary tErsets pushed Hanoi into seriou? peace negotia- tions in the Vietnam experience testified to what bembms can- not co. The bombing and the mine blockade of North Viet- Dons did not. as top pTTDacted. reduce to a trickle the flow of gaso- jspons and other war material from Russia and China. Also, from a strategic standpoint, the hombrne cam- paign labored under a dis- advantage it could never overcome.
