  • What are the pros and cons of US involvement in Vietnam as highlighted by President Johnson?
    • Pros
      • Show of strength for President
      • China and USSR stopped, containment
      • Damage control
      • President Johnson's reputation enhanced
    • Cons
      • Americans didn't really care anyway about Vietnam
      • President Johnson's heart wasn't really in it.
      • Weakness in leadership
        • President almost being told what to do by Senators
      • Johnson didn't think it was worth fighting for
      • No apparent objective
      • Too little public support
      • Too far away, no clear value
      • Don't know about terrain
