NotesImage 1: See 17790 for published cartoon. News: 9 May: Nixon assured thousands of
Americans planning a massive anti-war rally outside the White House that his objectives in
Cambodia were similar to theirs: to shorten the war, reduce casualties and secure a just
peace. He promised that most US troops would be out of Cambodia by mid-June and the South
Vietnamese would be withdrawn at the same time. Image 2: See NG0578 for original artwork
