LBJ went from 16,000 troops to 500,000 and Nixon pulled us out. so only a Dem can think Johnson was the hero in that war.

"I never had sex with that woman" is reserved for Bill Clinton. Read your own material.

gio you evidently prefer Clinton's view that even though Hussein had wmd's he didn't care? And I bet you believed "I never had sex with that woman".

Arguing with a liberal on this subject is as useless as the Paris peace talks were.

Do you not understand the meaning of "illegal?" "Illegal" is why Nixon was a crook, why he left before his certain impeachment--it has nothing to do with ones political affiliation.....what don't you get?

When was "crook" put in reserve for Nixon gio? When he was elected, or when he was nominated? Was is one of the leftovers from LBJ or mabe Kennedy? Who decides these things? Since you are all excited about LBJ's tapes being out, why aren't you caling him names now? Cant see past your prejudice, that's why.

I could have sworn that the label "crook" in reference to a sitting president was reserved for and well deserved by a mr. Nixon, unless someone cares to re write history for us.

wait til i tell the polar bears & whales you're ignoring their plights. they're gonna be mad!

if GWB had said "we're gonna go over there to free an oppressed people from what is obviously a despotic ruler" you megalomaniacs woulda been all for it.

For the last time....that's a Johnson lie,perpetuated by his party. There was no forthcoming treaty, the North would not quit under any circumstances until they won. Everything they said was typical communist rhetoric and stalling to buildup and play the American public and media.. Like their leader said when told they lost every battle..."that's irrelevant" Like Hillary said.

And they still mean nothing today. All you libs do is complain about the past and rave about your anti hero. I really don't care what the politics of Vietnam were, what Johnson claims on his "secret illegal" recordings. Servicemen and women were treated like dirt by all of them and by many civilians at the time. Praise Johnson all you want and condemn Nixon all you want. Both were crooks and liars. Much like our president today.

Last time: Johnson had the war over. Treaty ready to sign. Nixon intervened by promising more after he got elected. So Johnson treaty fell through, and Nixon could not offer more so war went on another 6 years. Had Johnson treaty gone through Nixon would have lost election. Johnson knew this through illegal wire taps. So, Johnson had stopped the war and it should have been stopped until Nixon did what he did to become elected. Pay attention to the news fellas - you might learn something. These illegal wire taps are now available for you to listen to. Please do.

I am not surprised, but still disappointed that we can read the same transcripts and see something different. That is it in a nutshell. Left-right, and never the twain shall meet.

Howard don't yu recall McNamara's apology for being part of carrying out the war in the way it played? LBJ micro-managed from DC. It was a big bad Texan's way of being remembered...beat the commies no matter what. The domino theory. He lost it, and now his party blames it on Nixon. Nixon had enough wrongs of his own without adding Johnson's. Prior to 1965 you could buy your way through a VC checkpoint for 500 piastres.

OK, loneriderrr1 and 50s4ever, just say It must be true is right - because there are tapes out now that prove it. Ignore the facts - don't answer my questions - that just proves to me that I am wasting my time so I am glad you know it all and are satisfied with each other.

well rider----Johnson said it, so it just has to be true. Like Tonkin. Not posible at all he wanted his legacy to no be getting us mired in Vietnam, but actually winning. Bombing the Hanoi/Haiphong area was good. Halting the materiel on the Ho Chi Minh trail was great. Smashing the Cambodia cache and safe have was daring and a real treat for men used to being held back.

loneriderrr1, that is what I said in that post. The only other thing I said was Iraq was doing nothing - we just invaded because, well, just because. How is any of that wrong?

loneriderrr1, "and Nixon, well who really knows what he did." OMG - You need short sentences also. Johnson tapes revealed last week. Johnson negotiated the wars end just before the 1968 election. Nixon stopped this. Because if war ended he loses election. Nixon promised better treaty to keep war going. Johnson could not reveal because phone taps proving this were illegal. (that last sentence might be too long) Nixon, for his own advantage caused the war to last 6 more years. He defaulted on his promise of a better treaty. The illegal tapes came out last week. Do you understand this?
