Latest at the Diplomat highlights some interesting new research on the impact of bombing on South Vietnam:

new survey on the use of aerial bombing during the Vietnam War has seemingly confirmed what many suspected: the systematic bombing of South Vietnam detracted from, rather than furthered, U.S. war aims.
