Abstract By spring 1970 the war in Southeast Asia had intensified. According to Nixon, Hanoi invaded Laos and Cambodia in violation of the Geneva agreements. Nixon followed with defensive movements into these nations. This action proved unpopular and led to still more anti-war protests, including the confrontation between students and the National Guard at Kent State University in Ohio, which left four students dead. Also at the time of this address, Nixon was already withdrawing troops and replacing them with American-trained South Vietnamese soldiers. As a result, American casualties were at a five-year low.
