Nixon not only undermined himself...
... but, says Republican Jerry Scott, cost America victory in Vietnam
The Paris Peace Treaty, which was signed on Jan. 27, 1973, ended the Vietnam War. It was presumed at the time that, if North Vietnam violated the terms of the treaty, President Nixon would resume bombing Hanoi immediately. Once Nixon resigned to avoid almost certain impeachment, Congress cut off all funding to Vietnam. Saigon fell on April 30, 1975. We now have peaceful relations with Vietnam. We are their largest customer. Hanoi, in particular, is a beautiful city to walk around in, which I did a couple of years ago.
