Ford had little to do with the US's original military withdrawal from Vietnam. He just did not send in US troops when North Vietnam was on the verge of victory, electing to evacuate instead. He may or may not have been reneging on an unwritten assurance by Nixon.
Overall, LBJ’s presidency would have been one of the most successful in American history, but for the giant stain of Vietnam. Who knows how history would have judged Johnson had the Paris talks been a success and who knows how many of these deaths could have been avoided?
Don't **** with the Vietnamese
