How did the US public react to the Vietnam War?
The Anti war people, or better known as the HIPPIES, were having huge protests about if they should even had started the war. They felt as if the young men were over there losing their lives for nothing. Some of the American public supported the war but the (counter-culture) or hippies as some people would call them did not support it. Overall everyone is entitled to their own opinion and could have chose to support it or no to support it. I suppose it depends on how you grow up and what not what your views on war are. Here are more answers from WikiAnswers contributors: * Students Protested, not the hippies. They were too busy getting stoned to know there was a war and had no permanent address so the draft boards couldn't find them anyway.
