Is Iran Planning a “Tet Offensive” Analog for August 22?
If they are and the U.S. got wind of the plans, that might explain why we leaned on the Israeli government to withdraw. A temporary absence of war in Lebanon might increase the odds that a “Tet offensive” will fizzle.
Of course, once we have a military base in Vietnam, we can ignore attempted repeats of the Tet offensive. Even if they succeed, they will look like a long-term defeat instead of a long-term victory.
Meanwhile, we bloggers should get to work and point out that the Tet offensive was a military failure on the part of the Vietcong.
