There has been a series of new developments in Vietnamese Communist military and political activity during the past three months or so. On the political side, the most conspicuous steps have been the ten-point program of the Liberation Front, the formation of the "provisional revolutionary government", and the apparent hardening of the Communist attitude toward talks with the GVN. On the military side, there are the absence of evidence of new infiltration inputs, the withdrawal of some logistics personnel from Laos, and the slackening of military pressures in South Vietnam. There are, in addition, less obvious signs in communist propaganda and in captured documents that the communists are entering a new phase of activity. This paper examines some of these developments and offers possible explanations.
