to critics of the war as to supporters. it was a real debate. george kennan was one of america's most customers diplomats and also theorists about diplomacy. was kennen who wrote an article and signed it "mr. x," because he was a diplomat and could not take sides. really suggesting that the policy the united states should follow was containment. the containment theory was the rational for united states to send troops to vietnam. here was the author of the containment theory saying it does not apply. this is a mistake. george kennan: it is clear however justified our own action may be in our eyes, it has failed to win either enthusiasm or confidence, even among people normally friendly to us. our motives are widely misinterpreted and the spectacle emphasized and reproduced in thousands of press photographs and stories that appear in the press of the world, the spectacle of americans inflicting grievous injuries on the lives of a poor and helpless people, and particularly a people of different race and color, no matter how warranted by military necessity or excesses of the adversar
