While the Chinese-supported communist regime firmly controls its 'liberated' population, Us president JFK and his staff consider how far they should engage, in the Cold War logic and fearing a domino effect, to support the corrupt, oppressive cheaters republic in the south, which plays them greedily. Its cleptocratic inner circle turns its own population -even the Buddhist monks- against them, hence against the US troops, who can't distinguish the communist insurgents from local farmers, hence each kill makes a dozen new enemies. Furthermore the Vietnamese are prepared to sacrifice far more. After Kennedy's Dallas murder, Lyndon B. Johnson inherits bleak prospects.
