Because journalists like Walter Cronkite and reporters in the fields of Vietnam very publicly doubted the course of the war. Troops were shown along with gore in a war on televisions in the United States. http://www.museum.tv/archives/etv/V/htmlV/vietnamonte/vietnamonte.htm The counterculture became strong opposition to the war because the war represented the over-controling 50s mentality many grew up in. Opposition to the Vietnam War built on the large pacifist and isolationist movement against World War I and to a lesser extent World War II. A notable organization was Students for A Democratic Society. Many people felt the war was the wrong policy for a domestically troubled country despite the communist threat. Among minorities and young people the belief that Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy were about to change their policies against the Vietnam War increased opposition. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lmc2EzkRDkI
