The program of covert GVN (South Vietnamese) operations was designed to impose "progressively escalating pressure" upon the North, and initiated on a small and essentially ineffective scale in February 1964, according to standard sources.
The active U.S. role in the few covert operations that were carried out was limited essentially to planning, equipping, and training of the GVN forces involved, but U.S. responsibility for the launching and conduct of these activities was unequivocal and carried with it an implicit symbolic and psychological intensification of the U.S. commitment.

Bound up with the lack of official war status was the concept of escalation, which used the analogy of an escalator rising slowly but steadily to facilitate gradual entry into warfare as opposed to the traditional declaration of war with its attendant widescale mobilization and straightforward hostilities.
The United States Congress continued to vote appropriations for war operations, and the Johnson Administration claimed these actions as a proxy, along with Tonkin, for the Constitutionally mandated requirement that Congress retain war power.
Politically, the advantage of escalation to those who wanted to be engaged in the war was that no individual instance of escalation dramatically increased the level of U.S. involvement, so the U.S. populace was lead to believe that the most recent escalation would be sufficient to "win the war" and therefore would be the last.
