    Yeah, overall I enjoyed the paper. Wished for Vietnam & it came up!

    had to read the question 5B properly tho, interpretation that US wanted to distance itself from problems in South Korea.

    I was against the interpretation that the US wanted to distance itself from the problems in S.Vietnam.

    although there was a specified time period, in hindsight it was shown later on via nixon's (madman theory) that they wanted to escalate the war. & also the current period of johnson increasing economic aid etc.

    Oh I was in support because I kept to the time period and said they wanted wished to distance themselves but could not because they felt morally obliged to help the South Vietnamese and theui especially after the assassination of diem. Do you think I will be marked down?

    I got really confused on question b and had to think about what the question was asking for far too long - i didn't know what distance itself from the problem meant
    ..... I wrote about

    Distancing itself: escalating the war without addressing the PROBLEM which was the lack of support for the regime

    Against the interpretation: the US didn't distance itself but wanted to help the Vietnamese people with aid and freedom etc



    I'm really worried I did it completely wrong ... Do you think that this will get credit? Thanks
    i think so, but i thought 'distance itself from south vietnamese problems' was to avoid escalation & stop fighting which then lead to the withdrawal of us troops (vietnamisation)

    Thanks !!! I'm so worried though because I only spent about 35 minutes writing because I didn't understand the question! Yes I am sure that's what it meant now but I didn't realise at the time
    ohoh yeah i found timing quite an issue today as well, hopefully we all do well come August !

    & by any chance are doing tudors next wed ?

    Conclusion of part a) was that Source B was more helpful


    Groupings of part b) Sources B and (Some of) A agree, and Sources C, D and E (and some of A) disgree


    Conclusion of part b) The sources and my own knowledge Disagree with the statement


    People at my school had a range of different interpretations and groupings, a fair few had mine, but others had completely different groupings


    Realised I missed a few pieces of own knowledge(e.g. Agent Orange and Escalation of Advisers), but felt what I said was good enough (e.g. Agrovilles, Strategic Hamlets, The Coup, Communist controlled South Vietnam, Support for Diem, American escalation of bombing, and military escalation after the time period)


    Obviously some of that own knowledge isn't directly related to the context of the question but helps to prove reliability and provenance of the source


    Thoughts?

    I really like the way you answered the question. I did mine exactly the same way regarding question A (Source B being more helpful) & question B (regarding the grouping of the sources, I said sources A&B support the interpretation of the US distancing itself & sources C, D & E opposing the interpretation)

    Yeah, aah forgot to mention to an extent it opposes it, cos it said "the only option is for the US to start full
    Scale war" or something like that but he said personally it'll be the wrong thing to do so opposed it

    That's exactly the quotes I used, but it can be interpreted either way, hence why groupings have been so varied
