From 50 Years Ago : On the Brink in Viet Nam

Vol XVII, No 11, march 13, 1965

On the Brink in Viet Nam

Two battalions of U S marines have landed along the Viet Nam coast last week, sporadic bombing raids are continuing across the seventeenth degree parallel, and the White Paper issued by the Department of State indicates that the Americans are hell-bent to escalate the fighting. All this means that, over the next few weeks, more people will get maimed or killed, more huts and structures will be burnt down, more standing crops will be destroyed in the fields, more roads and bridges will be wiped out in a territory about ten thousand miles away from the United States mainland.
