This editorial from The Greenfield Recorder dated August 12, 1964, clearly expresses the hostility many Americans felt towards dissent against United States policy in Vietnam. Commenting on a World Assembly of Youth resolution critical of United States policy, the editorial criticizes the Assembly's absence of condemnation of Communism. The editorial sees the Chinese as directing and supporting the Gulf of Tonkin Incident of August 2 and 4, 1964. The author also sees the incident as a part of a larger and more broad-based Communist aggression. This belief about a Communist plan to take over all of Southeast Asia was called the "domino theory". The belief that the Gulf of Tonkin Incident may have been manufactured by the United States as grounds for war did not publicly surface for another decade.
