Combat activity in South Vietnam intensified last week, continuing through the weekend with the largest US operation of the war being launched in western Pleiku Province against regular North Vietnamese forces comparable in size to at least one division. COMUSMACV has confirmed the presence in II Corps of at least eight Communist regiments, two of them Viet Cong and six North Vietnamese. The political situation revealed increased signs of restiveness, particularly among Catholic circles and some evidence of increasing assertiveness by I Corps Commander General Thi. While there is greater press discussion of the lack of real political stability, there continue to be no signs of an imminent threat to the regime.
