One, Two, Many Vietnams

March 1981
National Review;3/20/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 5, p262
The article offers a view on the analogy of the Vietnam War and the current battle of El Salvador with Vietnam. North Vietnam has won over South Vietnam during the Vietnamese conflict. North attacked the South when there was no U.S. Air Force cover. U.S. Congress even refused to replenish ammunition and fuel to the South at that time. Currently, the military offensive strategy of the Salvadorian guerrillas has failed and the general strike which was supposed to coincide with it did not materialize. Military aid to El Salvador has been resumed and expanded by the administration of U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Guerrillas indeed need military reinforcements to win the battle against Vietnam.
