Nixon ended the war that Kennedy utterly stupidly started.
JFK sent 14,000 ground troops to vietnam with no strategy whatsoever.
Your sentence brought to mind Kerry's repeated ploy during the presidential primary debates of referring to "Nixon's war". Needless to say, he was never called on this assertion. He who went to Vietnam when LBJ was president.
...and the Kennedy mafia will in turn blame the initial military commitment on Eisenhower -- as if a small military 'mission' is the same as putting combat advisers into the field. Sheesh.
