basic fact , yet as most AmeriCONs Can't use critical analytical /reasoning skill... what behind the war is not to free . Got what US came for and left Vietnam in shambles, is it not A satanic evil ?<quoted text>
Actually, Vietnam started with President Eisenhower, who took the war over when the North Vietnamese defeated the French. It was passed on to Kennedy, who kept it limited to advisors, training the South Vietnamese to fight. Johnson inherited it, and promptly escalated it so American troops were doing most of the fighting. Nixon took over, maintained it until he realized the war was a big loser, and ended our involvement, leaving the South vietnamese government to sink or swim. They sank.
