It needed to be saved. In later years no one could remember exactly what it needed to be saved from, but that is another story. For many years Vietnam was in the process of being saved by France, but the French eventually tired of their labors and left. It was the richest and most powerful nation on earth. It had, for example, nuclear explosives on hand and ready to use equal to six tons of TNT for every man, woman, and child in the world.
It had huge and very efficient factories, brilliant and dedicated scientists, and most but not everybody would agree, it had good intentions. Sadly, America had one fatal flaw — its inhabitants were in love with technology and thought it could do no wrong.
A visitor to America during the time of this story would probably have guessed its outcome after seeing how its inhabitants were treating their own country. The air was mostly foul, the water putrid, and most of the land was either covered with concrete or garbage. But Americans were never much on introspection and they didn't foresee the result of their loving embrace on the small country.
They set out to save Vietnam with the same enthusiasm and determination their forefathers had displayed in conquering the frontier. They bombed. More than 3 million tons of explosives were dropped — 50 per cent more than the total bomb tonnage dropped in both theatres of World War II.
