    Interesting, but .... I don't they would have proceeded for various reasons
    - back in 1968, Richard M. Nixon was elected thanks to a platform the top item was " to bring back the boys from Vietnam home".
    - for re-election in '72, the item was still hight in the agenda.
    - the american public at large was not at all prepared for another war,
    - did not want it, while pondering on what had been going on in Vietnam
    and Prez'Nixon tended to make some of his words true : "They are not Good Wars, every war is bad".
