This is about people dealing in death. Politicians seem to live in a world where their images trump (excuse the word) a moral intent. Lyndon Johnson, in retrospect, based his decision making on dealing with a conflict that was never resolvable. What he and his generals and cabinet did was beyond the pale. We are dragged through fields of dead bodies, victimized by people who never had to go to slaughter. And, of course, that ridiculous falling domino business was at the center. Ultimately, it got down to a country where the people would have been happy to see the country unified. If not for imperialism and interference, they would have gone about their business, doing their daily things. No. Some cockeyed politicians with their heads you know where couldn't leave well enough alone.
