United Nation Role

The United Nation's role in the Vietnam was was small. Johnson had said that the UN must not join the conflict of the war, but instead let it play out for it would be resolved. Johnson was receiving bad data that the war would end soon. He made conclusions that were not true. He kept telling the public that the war would end soon. Also, the UN had no real power toward war, they made recommendations toward country's government. In addition, the United States is one of the permanent which meant they had the power to veto resolutions. This basicly made it impossible for the UN to get involved. Later when Johnson wanted the UN to find a solution for the Vietnam war. Overall the UN played a small role in the Vietnam War, they did nothing basicly.
