Stability in Saigon
The political situation in South Vietnam began to stabilize somewhat with the coming to power of President Nguyen Van Thieu and Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky in 1967. Thieu, mistrustful and indecisive, remained president until 1975. This ended a long series of military juntas that had begun with Diem's assassination. The relative calm allowed the ARVN to collaborate more effectively with its allies and become a better fighting force.
