The leaders of the Anti-Slavery Movement that helped the slaves get freedom were Abraham Lincoln who wrote the “Emancipation Proclamation”; William Lloyd Garrison was editor of an abolitionist newspaper and got people involved in what was happening to slaves...
However, in October 2004 I received a letter from a former airman who had taken part in burning some of the banknotes. Former TSGT Bob Remel of the 35th Civil Engineering Squadron, 35th Tactical Fighter Wing, recalls what it was like to burn the propaganda leaflets at Phan Rang Air Base in Spring 1971. He was a member of the Base Fire Department and Crash Rescue team. He says:

This is the main reason America was involved in the Vietnam war.
In neighboring Kampuchea (previously named Cambodia), Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge began a reign of terror in hopes of creating a pre-industrial utopia, murdering around 2 million people in so-called "killing fields." In 1978, the SRV invaded Kampuchea to stop the Khmer Rouge, in what became known as "Vietnam's Vietnam." While the invasion put an end to the "killing fields," China became upset by the SRV's extension of influence in the region and began a border war with Vietnam....
The Vietnam War was one of America’s most controversial wars.
In this international “game” of strategic maneuvers and incidents, both nations attempted to assert their influence over other states in what was essentially an ideological clash between democracy/capitalism and communism/socialism.
The Vietnam War was indeed a time of confusion.
At any rate, the propaganda banknotes that were produced in the greatest number and are certainly the most famous are the parody-counterfeits of the 1, 2 and 5 Dong notes of the Democratic Republic of (North) Vietnam. It would seem that "parody-counterfeit" is impossibility since the former must bear a message or a change of some kind so the holder realizes he does not have the genuine item, while the latter demands that the document be nearly perfect so as to fool the finder. How can these diametrically opposed concepts be brought together?
So why did the US become involved in the Vietnam War.
The United States Military Assistance Command was responsible for producing about sixty million of the propaganda banknotes in the years 1965 through 1972. According to knowledgeable sources, the banknotes were first produced, under contract, in a Japanese printing house in Tokyo. In the latter stages of the campaign, the printing was moved to an American run printing plant in Manila and the finished banknotes shipped from there to the Defense Department's psychological warfare command in Okinawa. The final destination was, of course, Allied airfields in Vietnam, where the leaflets were bundled and loaded on aircraft to be dropped over enemy territory.
When asked about the statement's opposition to the draft, he replies:
However the French were beaten at the battle of Dien Bien Phu because they were not careful and allowed the Vietnam to cut off their airway to Hanoi....
