The Vietnam War: The Battle of Khe Sanh
 
43:03
It was the longest and deadliest battle of the Vietnam War, with arguments still raging about what actually took place. A political chess game, American soldiers were caught in enemy territory with little or no strategy and casualties soared. US soldiers were the pawns of sacrifice in a situation beyond their control. Skeletons of the dead enemy hung from barbed wire. No helicopter could survive for more than 25 seconds before coming under fire. In the US, the nation looked on in horror. No precedent existed for such a ferocious conflict.

The Truth about the Vietnam War
 
05:46
Did the United States win or lose the Vietnam War? We are taught that it was a resounding loss for America, one that proves that intervening in the affairs of other nations is usually misguided. The truth is that our military won the war, but our politicians lost it. The Communists in North Vietnam actually signed a peace treaty, effectively surrendering. But the U.S. Congress didn't hold up its end of the bargain. In just five minutes, learn the truth about who really lost the Vietnam War.

That's not just my view. That was the view of our enemy, the North Vietnamese government officials. Victory was apparent when President Nixon ordered the U.S. Air Force to bomb industrial and military targets in Hanoi, North Viet Nam's capital city, and in Haiphong, its major port city, and we would stop the bombing if the North Vietnamese would attend the Paris Peace Talks that they had left earlier. The North Vietnamese did go back to the Paris Peace talks, and we did stop the bombing as promised. On January the 23rd, 1973, President Nixon gave a speech to the nation on primetime television announcing that the Paris Peace Accords had been initialed by the United States, South Vietnam, North Vietnam, the Viet Cong, and the Accords would be signed on the 27th. What the United States and South Vietnam received in those accords was victory. At the White House, it was called "VV Day," "Victory in Vietnam Day." The U.S. backed up that victory with a simple pledge within the Paris Peace Accords saying: should the South require any military hardware to defend itself against any North Vietnam aggression we would provide replacement aid to the South on a piece-by-piece, one-to-one replacement, meaning a bullet for a bullet; a helicopter for a helicopter, for all things lost -- replacement. The advance of communist tyranny had been halted by those accords. Then it all came apart. And It happened this way: In August of the following year, 1974, President Nixon resigned his office as a result of what became known as "Watergate." Three months after his resignation came the November congressional elections and within them the Democrats won a landslide victory for the new Congress and many of the members used their new majority to de-fund the military aid the U.S. had promised, piece for piece, breaking the commitment that we made to the South Vietnamese in Paris to provide whatever military hardware the South Vietnamese needed in case of aggression from the North. Put simply and accurately, a majority of Democrats of the 94th Congress did not keep the word of the United States. On April the 10th of 1975, President Gerald Ford appealed directly to those members of the congress in an evening Joint Session, televised to the nation. In that speech he literally begged the Congress to keep the word of the United States. But as President Ford delivered his speech, many of the members of the Congress walked out of the chamber. Many of them had an investment in America's failure in Vietnam. They had participated in demonstrations against the war for many years. They wouldn't give the aid.

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: The Vietnam War lasted ten years, cost America 58,000 lives and over a trillion dollars, adjusted for inflation. It brought down a president, stirred social unrest, and ended in defeat. No one in hindsight believes fighting a losing war is ever worth the cost. Consequently, the Vietnam War is usually written off as a colossal strategic blunder and a humanitarian disaster. Yet, historical appraisals might have been much different had the Vietnam War followed the pattern of the Korean War, which the United States fought for almost identical reasons: the defense of freedom in Asia. The U.S. had military advisors in Vietnam during the 1950s, but didn’t become involved in a major way until 1963. President John F. Kennedy firmly believed in the “domino effect,” the foreign policy theory that vulnerable nations without help would fall, one after another, like dominos, to external communist aggression. Kennedy thus hoped to stop Soviet- and Chinese-backed communist invasions in the manner President Harry Truman had in Korea by taking a stand in Vietnam. As with Korea, it was a war the United States did not seek. As with Korea, Vietnam presented no “imperial” advantages: no natural resources, or resources of any kind, that the United States needed to protect or wished to obtain. As with Korea, the aggressor was a communist government in the North intent on taking control of the South, and its military crossed an internationally recognized border to do so. Following Kennedy’s assassination in November of 1963, President Lyndon Johnson vastly escalated America’s role in 1964. But even as he did so, Johnson prosecuted the war with deep ambivalence, authorizing significantly more troops and money for the war, but never pushing for total victory. In contrast, the North Vietnamese never wavered. They ignored every one of Johnson’s many offers to negotiate a settlement. By 1971, the war was at a stalemate, neither side able to establish a clear advantage. The president, Richard Nixon, pursued a two-prong strategy -- to turn over combat operations to the South Vietnamese, and to bomb North Vietnam. The effort brought the communists to the Paris Peace Talks. And by 1973, the North agreed to a general settlement, establishing two autonomous Vietnamese nations – one communist, one non-communist—in the manner of North and South Korea. However, the Watergate scandal, the subsequent resignation of President Nixon, and the Democrats’ sweeping congressional victory in the 1974 mid-term election all helped to convince the North Vietnamese that America would not enforce the peace agreement. They were right. Without U.S. air support and material aid, the South Vietnamese had no chance against the North. Well supplied by the Soviet Union and the Chinese, the communists gained full control over the country in April 1975. The war proved far more costly than Korea because the geography and landscapes of Vietnam were far more conducive to insurgency operations. There were also far more restrictions placed on American commanders than during the Korean War. And the United States in the 1960s was a far less conservative and cohesive country than America of the 1950s.

Why Was the Vietnam War Fought? Robert McNamara on Lessons Learned, Mistakes (1995)
 
01:58:27
Robert Strange McNamara (June 9, 1916 -- July 6, 2009) was an American business executive and the eighth Secretary of Defense. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0679767495/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0679767495&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=763809cdcaa8ba220b5e3b32d4c6fefa He served under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson from 1961 to 1968, during which time he played a large role in escalating the United States involvement in the Vietnam War. Following that, he served as President of the World Bank from 1968 to 1981. McNamara was responsible for the institution of systems analysis in public policy, which developed into the discipline known today as policy analysis. McNamara consolidated intelligence and logistics functions of the Pentagon into two centralized agencies: the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Defense Supply Agency. Prior to public service, McNamara was one of the "Whiz Kids" who helped rebuild Ford Motor Company after World War II, and briefly served as Ford's President before becoming Secretary of Defense. A group of advisors he brought to the Pentagon inherited the "Whiz Kids" moniker. McNamara is the longest serving Secretary of Defense, amassing 2,595 days between 1961 and 1968. During President John F. Kennedy's term, while McNamara was Secretary of Defense, America's troops in Vietnam increased from 900 to 16,000 advisers, who were not supposed to engage in combat but rather to train the Army of the Republic of Vietnam. The number of combat advisers in Vietnam when Kennedy died vary depending upon source. The first military adviser deaths in Vietnam occurred in 1957 or 59 under the Eisenhower Administration, which had infiltrated Vietnam, through the efforts of Stanley Sheinbaum, with an unknown number of CIA operatives and other special forces in addition to almost 700 advisers. The Truman and Eisenhower administrations had committed the United States to support the French and native anti-Communist forces in Vietnam in resisting efforts by the Communists in the North to unify the country, though neither administration established actual combat forces in the war. The U.S. role—initially limited to financial support, military advice and covert intelligence gathering—expanded after 1954 when the French withdrew. During the Kennedy administration, the U.S. military advisory group in South Vietnam steadily increased, with McNamara's concurrence, from 900 to 16,000. U.S. involvement escalated after the Gulf of Tonkin incidents in August 1964, involving an attack on a U.S. Navy destroyer by North Vietnamese naval vessels. McNamara was instrumental in presenting this event to Congress and the public as justification for escalation of the war against the communists. The Vietnam War came to claim most of McNamara's time and energy. President Johnson ordered retaliatory air strikes on North Vietnamese naval bases and Congress approved almost unanimously the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, authorizing the president "to take all necessary measures to repel any armed attack against the forces of the U.S. and to prevent further aggression." In 1965, in response to stepped up military activity by the Viet Cong in South Vietnam and their North Vietnamese allies, the U.S. began bombing North Vietnam, deployed large military forces and entered into combat in South Vietnam. McNamara's plan, supported by requests from top U.S. military commanders in Vietnam, led to the commitment of 485,000 troops by the end of 1967 and almost 535,000 by June 30, 1968. The casualty lists mounted as the number of troops and the intensity of fighting escalated. McNamara put in place a statistical strategy for victory in Vietnam. He concluded that there were a limited number of Viet Cong fighters in Vietnam and that a war of attrition would destroy them. He applied metrics (body counts) to determine how close to success his plan was. Although he was a prime architect of the Vietnam War and repeatedly overruled the JCS on strategic matters, McNamara gradually became skeptical about whether the war could be won by deploying more troops to South Vietnam and intensifying the bombing of North Vietnam, a claim he would publish in a book years later. He also stated later that his support of the Vietnam War was given out of loyalty to administration policy. He traveled to Vietnam many times to study the situation firsthand and became increasingly reluctant to approve the large force increments requested by the military commanders. McNamara said that the Domino Theory was the main reason for entering the Vietnam War. In the same interview he stated, "Kennedy hadn't said before he died whether, faced with the loss of Vietnam, he would [completely] withdraw; but I believe today that had he faced that choice, he would have withdrawn." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_mcnamara

Review: Platoon (1986) - The Vietnam War
 
04:38
This video is a critical analysis of the film called Platoon (1986) which is about the Vietnam War. Well.. I found this movie quite interesting and distinct as the visual director of the film; Oliver Stone wrote the screenplay, which is based upon his own experiences as a U.S. soldier who actually witnessed the hardship in the Vietnam War. Stone also sets out the stage for a critical reflection on the horror of war, violations, illegal killings as well as breach of human rights. His ideals are shattered by the reality, corruption, and rage of the war. The underlying message behind the scene of “Platoon” is, thematically, about loss of innocence, the fog of war, and the disillusionment of "moral" principles guiding so-called just wars. Stone had dropped out the college and volunteered to fight in the Vietnam War. After joining the military, he then quickly discovered that the romantic side of war that he had in his head was way too different from the reality. He had volunteered into war thinking it was the right thing to do. It could be a thing that he could be proud of. But really! it turned out to be the worst decision ever!

The Perfect War: Technowar in VIETNAM (1987) - Part 1 of 2

¤ Alternative Views 316. THE PERFECT WAR: TECHNOWAR IN VIETNAM (PARTS I) (1987) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_Views http://tinyurl.com/3tmqruh In the first of a two-part series, we make an in-depth analysis of the Vietnam war with Dr. Bill Gibson, Sociology professor at Southern Methodist University and author of "The Perfect War: Technowar in Vietnam (1986)" The program proceeds at two levels: the first is the analysis of the basic nature of the war at the macro stratum of the planners--the politicians and generals--and the lowest level of the common soldier. The result provides not only a fresh, new insight into the causes and nature of the war, but also a gut-wrenching feeling for the life and feelings of the fighting men. Gibson maintains that the war was designed and managed like a factory, with the higher ranking officers being the managers and the ordinary soldier being the workers. The product was body count. The result was soldiers being used as ambush bait on search and destroy missions and the Vietnamese civilians being subjected to continuous atrocities. The emphasis by the Americans was on the use of sophisticated technology which was not just ineffective in bringing American victory, but was irrelevant in fighting a popular war of national liberation which was mainly political. ¤ Professor Dr. Bill Gibson http://www.jameswilliamgibson.com/aboutgibson.htm ¤ BOOK: The Perfect War: Technowar in Vietnam (1986) http://www.amazon.com/Perfect-War-Technowar-Vietnam-Military/dp/0871137992 ¤ BOOK: Warrior Dreams: Paramilitary Culture in Post-Vietnam America 1994) http://www.amazon.com/Warrior-Dreams-Violence-Manhood-Post-Vietnam/dp/0809015781 http://www3.niu.edu/~td0raf1/history468/apr1803.htm Run Time: 58:15 Recorded January, 1987 Copyright February, 1987 This movie is part of the collection: Alternative Views Producer: Frank Morrow Production Company: Alternative Information Network Audio/Visual: sound, color Language: English © Creative Commons license: Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 United States http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/us/

By Brittany Mitchell Journalism student at Charles Sturt University John Takorczyk an Australian Vietnam veteran talks about pop culture movies, Rambo, The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now and Platoon and their depiction of the changing culture's and societies. John served for Australia as a conscript for twelve months, and served in Vietnam for 7 months before returning home and serving in Malaysia. John talked about the Hollywood, Americanised version of the Vietnam War and its depiction of a changed society that did not welcome home its veterans. He states that although these movies take things to an extreme, they put into imagery a changed world. With John's commentary we are able to look through a veterans eyes and see how these movies may have affected a different culture at a different time.

The CIA's Deadly Deceits and the Vietnam War w/ Ex-CIA Officer Ralph McGehee
 
01:19:43
For more related content, please visit: https://archive.org/details/@altviewstv-fanclub In this lecture, Ralph McGehee states, "The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the President's foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting 'intelligence' justifying those activities. It shapes its intelligence to support presidential policy. Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target audience of its lies." An All-American football player at Notre Dame, Ralph McGehee worked for the CIA from 1952 to 1977. He is the author of Deadly Deceits. Alexander Cockburn called it "one of the outstanding books written by a former CIA agent."
