    Richard Nixon created a paranoid image of America as a “pitiful, helpless giant” if we did not prevail in South Vietnam.

    And what could be more pitiful than sending more America men or goods to the middle east?

    Richard Nixon brought the Vietnam War to a successful conclusion with the Paris Peace Accords. Had the Democrat-controlled Congress allowed President Ford to support the South Vietnamese government when North Vietnam broke the treaty and launched an invasion into South Vietnam we might have a South Vietnam today. Instead, the South Vietnamese were allowed to fall under the tyranny of ruthless men while the American left consoled itself with the idea that the Vietnam was was unwinnable.

    Huh. This is starting to sound familiar, somehow.

    Nixon’s secret plan to end the Viet Nam war,
    the one slogan he won the second election on,
    was to use nukes, but he was stopped by left wing protest.

    If Nixon had stopped the war in his first year,
    he would have been a hero.
    Instead he ramped the war up and then lost the war in the wost defeat of US history.
