The article comments on the prospects for a settlement of the Vietnam War. The author notes that events in both Cambodia and South Vietnam demonstrate firmer evidence that the North Vietnamese are prepared to continue with their strategy of protracted warfare to the limit of their capacity and that the United States' raid on the Son Tay prison camp on November 21, 1970, and the heavy bombing of an area below the Nineteenth Parallel are also likely to have a negative effect on peace negotiations.
