We did win the Vietnam War, but not for the reasons stated. The final phase that forced the NVA to sign the Paris Peace accord was Operation
Linebacker. This started in roughly April 72, it was the bombing of the North. We owned the skies over north vietnam and we bombed them into the
The north told the US about around July that they would sign if we quit bombing. We quit and they went back to playing their games at the peace talks
and President Nixon quickly saw through their game and ordered a resumption of bombing and said we would continue to bomb until they signed the peace
accord. They finally signed. Part of the agreement was that we would depart S Vietnam, we did and the commies, true to their word, broke the peace
accord and went on the attack in S. Vietnam. We did not go back in, but we did provide air support and resupply to the S. The first nva massed
attack with tanks and troops was repulsed, year or so later the north did it again, at this point the good mr chruch passed and amendment stating we
would no longer assist the S. Vietnam and so the South fell to the communist and the killing began.
Johnson was the guy that grew this war and had absolutely no clue as to how wars were conducted and won. He an McNamara were responsible for the
58,000 deaths for the most part. I live in Texas and I have never been to the lbj memorial and never will. He was a traitor in my view and a
disaster as a president.
