The Gulf of Ton-kin

General info on the incident
- The media saw two sides to this incident. One side to this is they believed that the government was just using so they would have true reason to start the war in Vietnam. Some people tried to say this incident never happened as some reports said that the men of the ships never got fired at.
- On the other end the media used this to monopoly the war cause and saying if the communist are willing to attack our ships they will be willing to do the same to our country. Using this to say we need to stop this before more men our attacked that are over there.
My own opinion
This website proves what the government was a lie.
