“....making North Vietnam off-limits to ground operations,..”

I served with a guy who went in with a team to N Vietnam...the Navy took them up there on a submarine...then they paddled in on a rubber boat...the purpose was to inspect a beach to see if it was fit for amphibious landings...the Marines like to know everything about a beach when they make invasion plans...and they were tasked to develop a plan for an amphibious assault into N. Vietnam.

Johnson/Macnamera had no intention of letting us effectively fight the war.

If we “Invaded” the North we would be as bad as they were - therefore we let them beat the shit out of us at their leisure.
