Three Threes in a Row 1. In the first paragraph of this section, what does it mean that the Americans cringed at the thought of a Communist Vietnam? 2. The text says that President Diem managed to “alienate everyone.” Based on context clues in this sentence and the surrounding text, what do you think alienate means? What specifically did President Diem do to alienate the people in the South? 4. Review: What is a peace accord? 5. The text says that the Viet Cong “operated stealthily under cover of the jungle.” In this context, the word operated means “acted” or “functioned.” Who were the Viet Cong? How did they fight? Using context clues, what might it mean that the Viet Cong were an elusive enemy? 7. Review: Why did the Americans back Ngo Dinh Diem in South Vietnam? 8. Explain this sentence in the final paragraph: “Two years later, on April 30, 1975, columns of North Vietnamese soldiers entered Saigon, meeting little resistance from the demoralized South Vietnamese army.” What happened?
