actually Kennedy started the Vietnam War, and LBJ turned it into the quagmire that we all remember today.
Nixon actually ended it, and by pulling out U.S. troops, allowed the VC government to overrun the places we were defending. Many people believe that if Nixon hadn't been side-tracked with Watergate, he might have ended it more like the Korean War, which happened while Nixon was Vice President, I might add.
