The United States bombed North Vietnam to bring the North Vietnamese rebels to the negotiating table. In late December 1972, an American B-52 dropped 20,000 tons of bombs on communist North Vietnam. The need to flex North Vietnam in the ongoing Vietnam Peace talks led to the dropping of bombs on Vietnam under the leadership of Richard Nixon and his Secretary Henry Kissinger.
If North Vietnam had not stopped its militancy, US President Richard Nixon could have devised all the means to end the war by using even nuclear power. For US nuclear weapons to be active, it must be issued with a secret code kept by the President. According to reports, the White House was activated during the Nixon era to prepare the war to make it even.
The role of Richard Nixon
North Vietnam was flexible in negotiations before demonstrating nuclear power through diplomatic and military threats from Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger in ending the Vietnam War. That’s how Nixon was able to end the Vietnam War, which was sending more than a hundred coffins a day to the United States.
There was strong opposition from the Americans to the Vietnam War. The Americans did not want their lives and millions of dollars to be wasted in a war on the other side of the world, regardless of the American state’s intentions to please the people of the world.
Kissinger Nixon’s alliance made friends with Soviet Russia, embroiled in the Cold War, and China, which long had only a little contact. While it may seem trivial from a current point of view, Nixon’s efforts to develop Russian-Chinese relations when capitalist America was deeply divided between Communist China and Russia are significant.
The North Vietnamese militants were also communists. With the opening of diplomatic relations with China and Russia, President Richard Nixon’s far-sighted plan reduced the supply of arms to the North Vietnamese and sent them to the negotiating table. Not only that: President Richard Nixon was able to agree on nuclear weapons at a time when the world was divided into two camps, hiding nuclear weapons and harassing each other. This was accomplished during his five years and seven months.
But Richard Nixon went down in history as the only American President due to the Watergate scandal.
Becoming a superpower
Dwight D. Eisenhower served as Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Pacific during World War II. Eisenhower was the 34th President of the United States. Richard Nixon was Eisenhower’s Vice President during both of his presidency (1953-1961).
Experienced Vice President Nixon and popular senator John F. Kennedy competed for 35th US president, and Kennedy won. Nixon won the 1969 election again after the unfortunate assassination of Kennedy. As well as being internationally successful, Nixon was instrumental in formulating an action plan for environmental protection. During his presidency, made several important decisions regarding schooling and illicit drugs.
The most substantial allegation that led Nixon to step down was that he had secretly organized a special delegation to support his presidential campaign at the Watergate Hotel and engaged in various covert activities. Historians speculate that Nixon lived in the White House as a sort of quiet, detached figure.
He also installed a separate telephone recording system to search the White House for details. Nixon also had a thought that there were always enemies and that they would conspire against him. Some of the bad habits in Nixon himself began to swallow him up. His recording tape was used as strong evidence in the Watergate case. Nixon resigned from the presidency in 1974.
Nixon was able to stop the corpses of soldiers being dragged to America by the Vietnam War. While it may not be the most successful way to resolve the Vietnam War, Nixon’s acts somehow managed to see the end of the Vietnam War. He also helped to defuse the Cold War. But how, he had to leave the position irrespective of the great contribution.
“Always remember, others may hate you, but those who hate you don’t win unless you hate them, and then you destroy yourself.” Richard Nixon made this statement to the media shortly before his resignation.
