Nguyen Van Thieu notified President Ford that the North Vietnam had violated the 1973 Paris Peace Accords and asked for 500 million dollars of Aid, but the U.S. Congress would not abide by the 1973 Paris Peace Accords that Henry Kissinger signed as the Secretary of State.

Thieu was a leader of the coup which unseated then-president Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963, and became president in 1967, two years after the United States had joined the war with combat troops.

 Thieu died
Nguyen Van Thieu, who has died aged 78, came to power in South Vietnam in June 1965 as leader of a junta of senior military officers committed to ending the chronic political instability that had plagued the country since the CIA-aided assassination of President Ngo Dinh Diem in November 1963.
Like Diem, Thieu made certain that the principal function of his huge army was to reinforce his political power, and he was both unprepared and unwilling to fight either a conventional or a guerrilla war in so far as it weakened his control over the armed forces.
Thieu no longer had the resources to pay his bloated army of roughly 500,000 men and air force of 1,400 planes, as well as maintain the loyalty of his huge bureaucracy.

 PWHCE - Nguyen Van Thieu Obituary
Thieu served as an officer in the new South Vietnamese Army which upon the proclamation of a republic in October 1955, was re-named the Army of the Republic of the Vietnam Nation (ARVN).
Thieu's American critics seemed oblivious to the fact that under him the latitude existed for dissent to be expressed and the scope for further democratic development to expand.
Thieu's decision to abandon the Central Highlands was strategically sound because it offered South Vietnam its best hope of survival by enabling the ARVN to conserve its strength and hold onto the more populous and defensible parts of the country.
