South Vietnam

What if Lyndon Johnson chose to fight the Vietnam War through counterinsurgency?

Do you think it would've been a wiser strategy than Gen. Westmoreland's attrition strategy and would've insured South Vietnam's independence like that of South Korea? Or do you think it would've failed regardless?

South Vietnam had too many strikes against it. There were too many factions and there was almost no respect for the government or other authorities. It needed a strong leader--someone who could capture the people like Ho Chi Minh was able to do.

Counterinsurgency might have worked but it was basically a flyswatter as opposed to an insecticide. What was needed was to eliminate the threat from North Vietnam, and that would mean hitting the offensive capabilities of North Vietnam as well as completely stopping the flow of supplies and fighters down the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which ran through Laos and Cambodia at least part of the way.

Given the elimination of all threats, South Vietnam might have survived and eventually united. The Vietnamese are good people, but were not ready for democracy as it was practiced on them.
