MacArthur didn't listen to his own intelligence people and lost the 7th Infantry division and almost lost the 1st Marine Division.<quoted text>
And LBJ knew how to? When did we mine Haiphong Harbor? 1972 by Richard Nixon. If we had done that in 1962, we would have won the war because N. Vietnam got almost of of their supplies through there.
And if Truman had listened to MacArthur in 1951, we would not still be at War with North Korea!
or are you talking about nuking Red China????
we would have lost Nam no matter what. They were going to fight on for however long it took.
Nixon even admitted Vietnam was a lost cause....its on one of those tapes he made. it was a conversation with Kissinger that they admitted it. In fact they made a deal with the North Vietnamese in Paris, that the U.S. would pull out and the North wouldn't attack the south for a year. The deal allowed Nixon to start pulling out troop prior to the 72 election. They did it to win the election.
Kennedy was the only smart one when it came to Nam, he did not want us to get involved and was planning on pulling out all of our advisers.
LBJ and McNamara should have been impeached for the false flag operation, the firing on a USS Maddox and the Gulf of Tonkin incident NEVER HAPPENED
Had we lived up to the agreement we made with Uncle Ho during WWII, everybody would have been better off and Vietnam would probably be a democratic CAPITALISTIC country by now
