Those important incidents, which had influences in the society, from 1960s to 1970s are roughly separated into two parts, the Vietnam War and political instability. The first, the United States has already intervened in the Vietnam War in the 1960s, and then United States Armed Forces still continued to fight in the early 1970s.

15 000 Cuban troops and technologically advanced weaponry, notably Mi-24 helicopters, caused the SADF to lose its advantage - an international arms embargo against South Africa meant the army was not able to compete with superior weapons technology. A series of Cuban airstrikes and combined FAPLA-Cuban attacks on the ground forced the SADF to retreat. As SADF colonel Jan Breytenbach admitted, the SADF “was brought to a grinding and definite halt”. In early 1988, the SADF continued importing fresh troops and continued bombing campaigns in the river region still occupied by FAPLA and Cuban troops, but were unsuccessful in their attempts to drive their enemy to the west of the Cuito river. In mid-1988 SADF forces began to withdraw from Angola at the time of peace negotiations in New York City, but the army continued to shell Cuito Cuanavale from a distance and planted landmines as it moved
We refuse to go to Vietnam!!!!!!!”. The Fort Hood Three were court martialed later that year, and their sole defense stated that the Vietnam War was illegal.
