34. US involvement in the war ended in 1973

 

We began decreasing troop strength significantly beginning in 1970.

The enormous anti-war sentiment at home played a huge part in forcing LBJ out of office, and it hamstrung the hawkish Nixon's efforts efforts to win the war with force. Saving face via diplomacy was his only real option.

If you want to wave the white flag and cow-tow to the Republicans, knock yourself out. Some of us would rather fight these fucks at every turn.
