Return of the Mayaguez: SIGN OF A TOUGHER AMERICA?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892

Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

For one brief moment, the United States once again acted like a great power, In mid-May, decisive and direct military action successfully recovered the U.S. merchant ship Mayaguez with its 39 crewmen from Cambodian hands, The incident was distinguished by its brevity. The Khmer Rouge government of Cambodia seized the American vessel on Monday, May 12; by Thursday, May 15, the U.S. had the ship back. After diplomatic overtures to the People's Republic of China and a request for United Nations intervention had failed, 200 American marines, with the help of air cover, physically retook the pirated Mayaguez in Koh Tang harbor, Soon afterward, a Cambodian fishing boat, flying white flags, turned over the captured crewmen. In the course of the fighting, nearly a fourth of Cambodia's known navy - three Khmer Rouge gunboats - were sunk. The swift use of American power, in contrast to the protracted military operations of the Vietnam war, drew a mixed world reaction.
