The US minister believed that Lao military action, “a last resort, which should be avoided if possible,” could interrupt this process of gradual communist control. He preferred, however, an unequivocal statement from the major Western powers that the de facto partitioning of Laos was a “gross violation” of the Geneva Accords. ”22 A stimulus for more forceful action in the northern provinces occurred on January 13, 1955, when Pathet Lao forces attacked two small ANL outposts in Sam Neua, approximately twelve miles from the provincial capital.
73 Born in 1890 and educated in France and England, Phetsarath was viceroy and prime minister of the kingdom of Luang Prabang until the end of World War II. Judging the Japanese surrender an opportune moment to declare the kingdom’s independence, Phetsarath angered the royal family, who favored the protection provided by the French. Stripped of his titles, Phetsarath remained in Thailand when other members of Lao Issara returned home. In June 1954 he organized an abortive army coup—whether against the Lao government or the monarchy was not clear—and some believed he was behind the assassination of Lao defense minister Kou Voravong.

While the United States could provide Laos with money, equipment, and weapons, only the French Military Mission (FMM) could train and advise the ANL. From a military perspective, this approach to assistance was an unsound arrangement that frustrated the French, the Americans, and the Laotians. Many French military and civilian officials, dispirited by their defeat in Indochina, resented the Americans in Laos, who presumably sought to ease them out of the country and the region at the first opportunity.
