Didn't say he sent troops in. I said he kicked it off<quoted text>
JFK sent the first combat troops into Vietnam. When LBJ became president because of the assassination he upped the number of combat troops. When LBJ sent those troops into Vietnam there had already been US troop casualties. JFK started the Vietnam war, LBJ stepped it up and then the democrats dumped it in Nixon's lap and blamed it on him. Typical democrat behavior.
And you are the typical dumb ass sheep. What Blue state did you get your History edumakashun in? lol
After the French granted independence to the nations of Indochina (Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam), Eisenhower employed U.S. power and prestige to help create a non-Communist government in South Vietnam, an action that would exert disastrous long-term consequences.
