The Vietnam war was fought for all the right reasons in all the wrong ways. Never before was there a war waged by so many politicians. Communism had yet to be completely unmasked for the immense fraud it is and our nation's captains of industry were stunningly silent in their defense of the American way.
Contrary to public statements, both Johnson and MacNamarra(and their entire staffs) did not believe in "the domino theory" by 1965, and did not fear the spread of communism if vietnam was lost. Read the white house transcripts to see what they thought and said.
