Firing Line Friday: Vietnamization

     In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.

     The question of American troops fighting abroad seems to be a nonstop debate at times.   Nixon’s Vietnamization plan resulted in South Vietnam, with Americans playing the support role, roll back North Vietnam’s Easter Offensive, which held until backstabbing Democrats after their 1974 Congressional sweep withheld support and funding. Over half-a-century ago, William F. Buckley, Jr. discussed the question of Vietnmization with Harrison E. Salisbury and Douglas Eugene Pike.

     Until next Friday.
