The Gulf of Tonkin incident, involved what were originally claimed to be two separate confrontations involving North Vietnam and the United States in the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin.

Hello,
The Gulf of Tonkin incident was a major historical event during the Indo-China (Vietnam) war, causing the United States to enter the war.

The French have been involved in Vietnam sicne the 50's, but were eventually driven out by the North Vietnamese communists, backed by the USSR and China.

After this the US involvement in the area got stronger, mainly to back the South Vietnamese, enemies of the communist North.

In 1964 the US Cruiser USS Maddox patrolled the Gulf of Tonkin to conduct a joint operation with the NSA to gather surveillance. It was then attacked by a North Vietnamese PT-Boat. (Light torpedo vessel designed for coastal patroll).

This attack lead to the Tonkin Resolution of 1964, signed by President Lyndon Johnson. It allowed the US military to take the necessary steps to attack the North Vietrnamese.


Important: NSA Documents revealed that the majority of the incident was staged in order to justify the US involvement.
