  • Anti-War Perspective

  • Get out of Vietnam
  • Get out of Vietnam
  • We're done with killing our Asian brothers!
  • I want to hold books, not guns!
  • Vietnamese Perspective
  • This is the third person this week...
  • How many people can be suspected as Viet Cong?
  • Those that supported the war believed that helping South Vietnam was something the United States could do to stop the expansion of Communism. They showed loyalty to the decisions President Johnson made despite not knowing the hidden consequences from the war.
  • Pro-War Perspective
  • "June and I support you and your decisions concerning pardons and amnesty.We are much pleased to see that you are praying for guidance and wisdom, for that is our daily prayer for you." 
  • Those that were against the United States involvement in the Vietnamese war were often the younger generation of the country, who wanted to live their lives rather than fighting. However, they kept peaceful protests and marches to convey their message than violence. 
  • Anti-War Perspective
  • I don't want my brother fighting for something he doesn't want to be in!
  • The Vietnamese suffered greatly from this war, but went uncovered by the media. Most of them that were recruited came from the city and knew nothing about the jungle where they fought. South Vietnam also knew practically nothing about Communism, and often supported it.
  • Vietnamese Perspective
  • I haven't heard from my sister in days...Ever since the Americans moved in, the village has been silent.
  • Those that supported the war were also divided about the policy of amnesty made by President Ford. These people had family members that entered the war and fought, and possibly died, and were angered by the pardoning. However, some supported the idea, such as famous celebrities like Johnny Cash.
  • Most of the protesters were businessmen, doctors, teachers, writers, students, and priests, who was remarked by the media as to being bizarre. From these protests, the President stated that he would have the FBI watching all anti-war activity, despite the peace these protesters were keeping.
  • Unfortunately, the non-communist Vietnamese were also victims of United States, since the enemy had no distinctive outfit. Villages were plundered and many had been either slaughtered or effected by the napalm bombs used, almost never covered by the media.
  • Maybe they don't want people on the roads...?
