U.S. Jets Launch Retaliatory Strikes Against Viet-Cong Ca. 1965Unknown - 1965
From 1965 to 1968, the United States conducted a series of bombing runs, dubbed Operation Rolling Thunder, on North Vietnamese targets. The strikes were intended to both demonstrate the U.S. resolve to win the Vietnam War and to force North Vietnam into peace talks. The campaign, which Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara later cited as ultimately unsuccessful, contributed to a decline in domestic support for the war and Lyndon B. Johnson's popularity.
