 Talk:Ngo Dinh Diem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ngo Dinh Diem is a person I revere very much, although I was born after(?) the war but through reference documents I feel that he is a person who should be respected.
Other times I changed "the United States" to "U.S. strategists," because during Ngo's regime the population of the U.S.A. was deeply divided among those either for or against the various actions taken by the U.S. government in Vietnam (and it would therefore be improper to ascribe such intentions to the entire nation).
This is due to the fact that the daughter of Diem's brother is called Ngo Dinh Le Thuy.

 Ngo Dinh Diem - Demopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Diem forged a relationship with the United States for support, while retaining policies toward the Buddhist majority which were criticized as hostile and biased in favor of the minority Roman Catholic population (of which Diem was a member).
The U.S hoped that Diem could be the charismatic equivalent of Ho Chi Minh, but Diem showed to be unsuited to role the U.S. had written for him, the opinions of these strategists began to change in the 1960s.
U.S. planners complained, claiming to be annoyed that Diem had not implemented land reforms to compete with the highly popular Communist program, and further claimed that the nepotism and corruption in his government was hurting the Southern cause.

Diem had served as a provincial official in the 1930s, but resigned in protest over disagreeable orders from his French superiors (thus establishing some credibility as a nationalist).
After surviving an attempted coup de etat in 1961, Diem diverted his best forces away from the fight against the communists that had by then resumed and stationed these forces near Saigon in hopes that they might come to his aid the next time that his rule was challenged.
Diem and his brother were hunted down and murdered (this had not been part of the US plan - it had been hoped that Diem would agree to leave the country).

Diem and Nhu were particularly incensed by its praise of Cambodian neutralism and criticism of their regime.
Diem, animated, no doubt, by religious as well as humanitarian sympathy, and with an eye to recruiting political support from his coreligionists, accorded these Catholic refugees preferential treatment in land redistribution, relief and assistance, commercial and export-import licenses, government employment, and other GVN largess.

 The Year of the Hare -- Reviews
The North Vietnamese feared him as the one South Vietnamese leader capable of claiming the Confucian 'mandate of heaven.' Moreover, Diem's chief drawback from the perspective of the American mission in Saigon was his aversion to excessive dependence on American advisers.
While the coup against him was being plotted, Diem was negotiating a political compromise with Ho, who was just as troubled by his dependence on Chinese support in the North as Diem was by the growing American presence in the South.
Diem's downfall, contends Winters, was the beginning of the end for the United States in Vietnam, since a staunch nationalist like Diem would surely have rejected subsequent Americanization of the war effort.

The brutal murder of the president of South Vietnam, Ngo Dinh Diem, and his powerful brother and adviser, Ngo Dinh Nhu, on November 2, 1963, was a major turning point in the war in Vietnam.

In this 1961 letter, Kennedy expressed his strong support for Diem, and his "embattled country" facing an insurrection "supported and directed from outside by the authorities at Hanoi." He further promised that "We shall promptly increase our assistance to your defense effort" — something JFK in fact did.
This letter is in ironic contrast to later documents which show the frustration of American officials with what they saw as the repressive policies of Diem.
There is, for example, a telegram from Secretary of State Dean Rusk to Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge in Saigon, instructing him on how to deal with the South Vietnamese government, and another telegram from Rusk to Lodge lamenting Diem policies.
