If not,' repeated attacks against Cambodian bases will be required to break up the enemy's supply lines. Also, with tbe'"precedent established by the American and South Vietnamese raids against Cambodia's Parrot's Beak and Fishhook, the new campaign is likely to extend to other North Vietnamese and Viet Cong bases across the border. The beauty of such search and destroy operations, from President Nixon's standpoint, is Westmoreland used search and destroy when he was commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam. He pressed for the attacks against Cambodian bases in his new job as Army chief of staff. Search and destroy amounts to going into an area with massed troops, destroying the enemy's command facilities and carting away or destroying weapons and rice.
