Summary
On August 2, 1964, North Vietnamese PT boats attacked the U.S. destroyer Maddox in the international waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Then on August 4, the Maddox and another destroyer, the Turner, reported hostile fire, though they discovered no North Vietnamese vessels. Although many in the military questioned the veracity of the second incident in the Gulf of Tonkin, President Lyndon B. Johnson pushed for retaliation against the North Vietnamese, which led to the bombing of oil depots in North Vietnam. The United States further escalated their involvement in the conflict with the subsequent passage of the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which granted the president the authority to "take all necessary measures" including military action, to ensure stability in Southeast Asia
