International Security Notes 10 November 2010 The US/RVN dilemma combat was attractive and highly successful combat was probably necessary, but far from sufficient, to control the villages directly occupying villages required more manpower than either the US or the RVN could easily supply Indefinite stalemate was extremely unattractive and ultimately unsustainable for the US What happened? the US and RVN gradually learned how to do counterinsurgency effectively (less violence, direct occupation of populated places, a lot more soldiers) the south vietnamese government ramped up their recruiting and more than doubled their forces US force became more effective, but political will at US continued to decrease (reason supporting theory that if the US remained they might have won) as a consequence of the Tet Offensive, they ran out of time the war ended by a mechanism other than insurgency or counterinsurgency CIVIL WAR importance

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
