This article comments on key issues related to the political conditions in Indochina. It presents a few appropriate actions that the U.S. can take to make things better in the area. The Communist conquest of all South Vietnam and all Cambodia is almost certain. In the probable event of Communist conquest, the supreme task would be to prevent the scheduled bloodbath. For this the U.S. would have to: Help all the primarily endangered South Vietnamese who wished help to get out, and welcome them--jointly with other non-Communist nations willing to collaborate--as refugees; Send an immediate proposal to the United Nations to send a large contingent of observers to monitor the Communist treatment of the South Vietnamese.
