they were used to spark protest against America's involvement in the Vietnam War
The media DIDN'T turn against the war...it's just that pictures didn't lie.

The Korean & Vietnam Wars were fought to contain communism. We contained them in Korea; but they won the Vietnam War. Cold War Score: 1 and 1
