NORTH VIETNAMESE TAKEOVER OF VIETNAM PART OF NIXON, KISSINGER PLAN TO RIG THE 1972 ELECTION
A STORY OF DISHONOR AND BETRAYAL
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
Declassified documents and tapes now show every single word on how the Vietnam War was ended was a lie. Henry Kissinger and President Nixon openly planned the fall of Vietnam to the Communists as part of a plan, along with Watergate, to give us "FOUR MORE YEARS" of the same, lies and betrayal.
A study of more Nixon/Kissinger tapes will show that, along with abandoning South Vietnam, our POWs held by North Vietnam in Laos were also abandoned, more than 200 of them.
This fact had been declassified in the 90s when the tapes were released but John McCain blocked any investigation, as he has blocked all investigations of POWs.
This is another story, a very dirty story of betrayal for another day.
In 1968, Nixon announced that he had a plan to end the war in Vietnam. In a 3 party election, he squeaked by Hubert Humphrey, took over the White House, and continued the war, costing 20,000 more American dead, that we admit, and another 25,000 that died of wounds that we don’t admit.
His plan? His plan was to simply give up and walk away, but he wanted a promise from North Vietnam that they would wait just long enough for him to have an excuse to walk away. He conspired with North Vietnam and China to betray, not only South Vietnam but our own military.
Henry Kissinger is still one of the great power brokers in Washington. What kind of deals do you think he is cutting right now? Take a look at histroy since. You will see his hand in many pots.
So, why did the war continue until 1972 and not end after the 1968 election?
The answer is simple. Nixon kept the war going for 4 years because he needed a ploy to use for a second election.
Everything done in Vietnam from January 1969 until the signing of the Treaty was done entirely to maintain Republican control of the White House, something we learned through Watergate that was considered worth breaking any law for or, as in the case of Vietnam, killing any number of Americans for.
Was Nixon worth it? Have we seen all of this again?
