This paper traces the links between the military, industry, and the U.S. government to show how weapon development was influenced by the U.S. involvement in Vietnam. The relationship between technology and conflict is made clear through both the new uses and development of weapons dictated by U.S. government policy in Southeast Asia. Ultimately, deadly consequences remain for civilians living in Vietnam as a result of these developments and the unsettling circumstance calls into question who should be responsible.
