    and I wish LBJ had not continued and escalated the policy JFK set in place

    Kennedy inherited from Ike support for a permanent bifurcation of the country under a separatist despot lest we risk the election of a lefty by atually allowing free elections to occur.  This support consisted of some covert ops and 16,000 "advisors".

    LBJ escalated the war into a war, a war to conquer and defeat an enemy at all costs, involving hundreds of thousands of combat troops engaged in combat.
