The Vietnam War in effect was won by the year 1973. The American units had trained the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, ARVN, to fight and win on their own. The Americans had mostly withdrawn from Vietnam. The Paris Peace Accord people had been meeting in Paris and had finally agreed to have the Americans completely leave Vietnam in return for North Vietnam staying out of South Vietnam and returning the POW’s from Hanoi and the Hanoi Hilton. The American President and congress had agreed with President Thieu, the President of South Vietnam, to completely resupply the ARVN with in effect “bullet for bullet”. That means that the United States world resupply everything the South Vietnam Army needed to battle the North Vietnam Army (NVA). All ammunition, airplanes, helicopters, or any other items to battle war.
The American congress was in the hands of the Democrats, lead by the Democrat leader Senator Ted Kennedy. Kennedy personally refused to allow ANY monetary allocations for the ARVN so that they could buy any “bullets” or other items to wage war. These actions were in violation of the Paris Peace Accords and the treaty thereof. The NVA could read the American newspapers and decided to “break” the Paris Peace Accords and invade South Vietnam. When the ARVN ran out of ammunition the road to Saigon was easy to win.
The North Vietnamese began their final offensive early in 1975. President Thieu subsequently resigned, accusing the U.S. of betrayal in a TV and radio address from Saigon, Vietnam.
During the President Reagan Administration Kennedy was in contact with Russia trying to subvert and undermine President Ronald Reagan.
