JFK Assassination and the Vietnam War

Recommended Posts

I think the proof is in the pudding.

Johnson's Vietnam obsession was so extreme that he buried his principles to the point where he used a phantom battle to justify war.

Every motivation is possible, but only the Vietnam war proved to be the factor that defined a policy reveral which hinged on the death of the President.

If Kennedy was not killed to destroy strong opposition to the Vietnam war, I think Johnson would have committed ground troops in 1964 as he believed was necessary. Instead of dong that, he spent his time trying to create the phony impression that there was perfect continuity between the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, but as Dean rusk aptly illustrates, that was clearly not the case.

Remember, it's not the crime, it's the attempt to cover it up...
