    Kennedy put troops into Vietnam, and Lyndon Johnson greatly increased their number. You might sound more intelligent if your knowledge of history were not edited by socialists.

    Kennedy put advisers there, Johnson put troops there to protect the advisers (at least that’s what they claimed). It was Nixon who started the carpet bombing, his plan he wouldn’t tell us about until elected. Vientamization, Iraqization, Afghanistanization – eh?

    Suggest you don’t have your comments edited by Republicans.

    You do realize that one of the main reason’s North Vietnam agree’d to Participate in Paris peace talk’s was because of the bombing?

    In the end I think Tricky Dick got what he deserved,but have to give credit were credit is do.

    re: Omnius

    Remember that it was Nixon that got us out of that situation that Kennedy and Johnson muddled in?

    I hope we learned that congress can’t run a war like a political thing.

    Douglas Macarthur, popinjay though he was, was quite correct when he said “there is no substitute for victory.”

    Older folks have told me that the PC war stuff didn’t get started until Korea. In WWII the idea was to get it done as fast as possible and go home. By vietnam, it had become fight, but don’t win. It didn’t help to have treasonous media that took the Tet disaster and turned it into a “victory”. The declassified stuff from vietnam indicated that Giap was ready to throw in the towel after Tet ended up so badly, but was encouraged by our media’s reaction to it.

    re: wcorvi

    You have an interesting view of history. Thankfully, there are those of us who know differently.

    WWII WAS about winning and getting out; VietNam was about testing our weapons systems.

    Wish you’d realize the only reason North Vietnam went to paris was to get us to negotiate “peace”, then we’d leave, be out of the way, then they steam-rolled the paper-thin ARVN

    Nixon did nothing but prove how dirty Republicans play … Rove & Cheney followed his playbook …

    Unofrtunately those of you who “know differently” are wolves in sheep’s clothing … please tell when you ever humped a pack through the weeds … I’ll stack my USMC 20 yrs against your alleged “knowledge” any day …

    @georgelcsmith

    Kennedy put advisers there, but then realized the problems with the South Vietnamese government and signed an executive order to keep troops out, but LBJ rescinded that order … YOUR knowledge of history probably reads that Nixon bombed the hell out of North Vietnam to force them to the peace talks … In reality, North Vietnam let us think we negotiated peace, then after we left, they steam-rolled through South Vietnam … read Sun Tzu, and you’ll understand the crux of waging war by Asians – distraction and illusion
