    The French as well as the U.S. should have stayed out of Vietnam. President Johnson put restrictions on the Army and Air Force. His order to Bomb Hanoi killed many civilians and destroyed lots of property. But, where was the enemy? Just across the borders and
    coming down the jungle to Saigon. The generals were forbidden to go after the enemy. The voters of that time were just as gullible as today and are easily mislead by the news media. Goldwater, I believe, would have been twice the president as Johnson. Just as today, voters believe hype and garbage.
