Basically Nixon sabotaged negotiations between the US and North Vietnam (that were actually promising) so that he could claim that Johnson wasn't handling the negotiations right. Then he escalated the war, got 22,000 more American servicemen killed, and finally signed a treaty in 1973.

This has been known for quite a while. The only thing stopping him and Kissinger from being put under international tribunal is the fact that America refuse to ratify the ICC statute, which is unsurprising given that an ex-president and one of their favourite bureaucrats will be dragged over to Hague immediately to face charge of war crime.

I, too, browse reddit.

Here allow me to copy and paste the top comment--

I agree it's ****ed up, but treason has a pretty specific meaning that this doesn't quite fit. Treason is harming or betraying your nation in order to aid a foreign country or rebel group. Nixon was helping himself.

Also there's no evidence here that he is single handedly responsible for sabotaging the talks. It's unlikely anything resembling an end to the war would've come out of Paris in 1968. The US was simply not willing to give up yet, and North Vietnam wasn't going to accept any armistice that didn't include a unified Vietnam.

1973 called, they want their news back, and also, they want to know what a Flying Spaghetti Monster is.

Richard Nixon committed exorcism.

Please what President HASN'T done something that blurred the lines of legality of just outright disregarded it. Since we're taking a trip back in time, think about the whole Iran-Contra affair. That shit was about as treasonous as it gets and it was practically swept under the rug.

Nixon wasn't even President when he did this. Read the article

I didn't know this had been discussed before...Everyone knows about the Watergate thing obviously, but this is just insane. Cynical in the worst possible way.

So this was based on tapes from 1968. 1 year before he became POTUS. Is that really worthy of eye-rolling lol? The only thing this shows was that our congress didn't know how to vet a candidate like they do now. These days a politician gets vetted they know when his first ****ing pubic hair came in.

Are you saying Richard Nixon is a heartless politician who would betray his own country just to win?
