Why did the massacre break the Country's trust?
This massacre broke America's trust because we literally broke one of the biggest things America strives for. Being the good guy. We were the bad guy in this situation. The American soldiers raped children and young women while buring down the village and killing any people spotted. To the American citizens we were supposed to be the good guys, but we backfired on the people we were even supposed to be helping. The citizens wondered if there was even a point in the war anymore.
