F f s, did you miss the bit where Johnson was trying to negotiate a settlement, and Nixon sent a message to the N Vietnamese via Madame Chenault to hang on, as when President he would give them a better deal - and prolonged it for another 5 years (to mention nothing of the - secret - bombing of Cambodia !)Just finished the PBS series on the Vietnam war by Ken Burns on Netflix. Thoroughly enjoyable, not least for the honking tunes of the era (admittedly a bit of a cliche when it comes to Vietnam documentaries).
It tried scrupulously to be fair but the bias was still apparent, whereby Kennedy and Johnson, who got the US into the war with all their misinformation and chicanery, are treated as decent human beings just trying to their best, whereas Nixon, the guy who actually got the US out and brought the boys home is depicted as intrinsically malevolent and a war monger.
That mild quibble aside it was a great show.
