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.
With increasing dissaproval as the war dragged on.
The American "public" supplied the manpower for the war, thus the "public" protested and rioted (anti-war/anti-draft protests).
Because the public was being drafted!
yes ther was a lot
Because the Vietnam war was fought between Vietnam and the US
The US helped South Vietnam with the South's blessing; the North was deciding if they should fight just the Southerners, or the US too. In the end, the North fought them both.
False. The US lost the Vietnam War. The South, whom the US were supporting, had become very corrupt and the US public withdrew their support for the war. The US withdrew and retreated, so their objective was not achieved, and therefore was lost.
They programmed many pictures and horrifc photos of the Vietnam war which annoyed the US public and army therefore increased American opposition.
The US was at war with North Vietnam (informally-not with documents signed/declaration of war).
We were at war with Vietnam because they disagreed with us about something.
An America that was equally divided.
It lowered morale.
Prior to Vietnam, few if anyone ever heard of it. After Vietnam, they wished they never heard of it.
With North Vietnam (not Vietnam; Vietnam was created after the war). No, the US did not win the war.
The "public" was being drafted into military service; which influenced public opinion, which in turn influenced the protests and riots against the war.
Government officials refused to inform the people that they were in Vietnam to stop the spread of Communism. Since there was no clear objective disclosed to the public, many US Citizens opposed the War in Vietnam.
Public hatred of their servicemen.
Nothing. The US is not at war w/Afghanistan. The US was at war with North Vietnam.
The Tet Offensive had a significant impact on the Vietnam War, as it resulted in a steep decline in support for the war among the American public. The US and South Vietnam actually won a tactical victory, however, it was a political victory for North Vietnam.
The US went to war with Communist NORTH Vietnam to prevent them from conquering South Vietnam.
What is a "blood related nickname?" Some GI or US public nicknames for the Vietnam/or the war were; "The Nam", "Indochina", or "Southeast Asia."
In the early stages of the war it was accepted as a proper use of US military power. That position changed as the war wore on.
The US is not at war Iraq. The US was at war with a nation called North Vietnam.
