Even if an Indochina independent of French rule might promote Asian stability in the long run, this prospect had to be balanced against Washington's immediate strategic needs in the Far East.

Without the Southeast Asian connection, primary non-Communist base areas would be isolated from one another. Furthermore, should a major conflict break out in either the Far East or the Pacific, Western forces would require ready access to air routes that ran through Singapore, Bangkok, Rangoon, and Djakarta.
