Best Answer

It began as an anti draft movement among the hippies and the flower children. As the US casualties mounted it became more and more widespread and began to appear on the evening news along with reports of Buddhist monks setting themselves aflame, young napalmed girls and an every increasing number of flag draped caskets returnin to the States. The draft resisters, evaders and dodgers increased in numbers as did the number of draft card burnings. The larger and more vocal the protests became, the more the government leaked about Laos and Cambodia. Suport of the Vietnam War collapsed and then ended.
