Foreign Relations of the United States, 1969-1976: Volume XX: Southeast Asia, 1969-1972
Daniel J. Lawler (ed)
The decision to cover Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia for 1969äóñ1972 in detail in this vol. was based on the fact that each country was a key ally äóî either formally or de facto äóî of the U.S. during the Vietnam war, and each played a specific role during the conflict. Thailand sent troops to fight in Vietnam, provided bases for U.S. airpower in Southeast Asia, and secretly provided training, troops, and arms to support U.S.-backed guerrilla forces in Laos. The Philippines sent a 2,000-man civic action group to South Vietnam, and Filipinos made up many of the administrative contractors in South Vietnam. Indonesia provided key arms support to the Lon Nol government at a crucial time. In addition, Thailand, the Philippines, and Indonesia were important countries in their own right, with key U.S. military and economic assistance programs, large embassies, and close relations with the United States. In each country, the U.S. had a considerable interest in their governmentäó»s success. This is a print on demand report.
