Political War

Posted by Pat Henry on August 29, 2001 at 04:57:16:

I knew this usage would cause some concern.

My intent that the use of this term was to mean that during the Vietnam War military tactics were secondary to finding some POLITICAL advanages in the US. Case in piont, early in the Johnson administration, the generals were ordered to list the top military targets, that if we destroyed these areas we would so cripple the North Vietnam's ability to wage War. The Generals identified 258 targets, List highest to lowest in importance.

What did the Johnson Admin. do? They fliped the list over and started action against the lowest and least benefical targets!

FYI Best video on Vietnam War is PBS's "Vietnam, The 10,000 day War". original content and design Copyright © 1999-2019; Scott Cummings, All Rights Reserved. Privacy Statement
