total con quest Over this all Asia another reality The deep ening shadow of Communist China The rulers in Hanoi are urged on by Peking the contest in Viet Nam is part of a wider pattern of aggressive purpose We are there because we have a promise to keep Since 1954 every American president has offered support to the peo ple of South Viet Nam We have made a national pledge to help South Viet Nam defend its in dependence and intend to keep that promise We are also there to strengthen world order Around the globe Berlin to people whose wellbeing rests in part on the belief they can c o u n t on
