Richard Nixon Reports on the Status of the War in Vietnam Ca. 1970Unknown - 1970
Despite increasing dissent from Americans involved in the anti-war movement, Nixon believed that victory in Vietnam was still possible, and tried to show the American people the progress that was being made. At the time of this address, American troops were being replaced with U.S.-trained South Vietnamese troops, which enabled the gradual reduction of the United States' military presence. Allied troops were also successfully containing enemy activity. However, peace negotiations in Paris were not going well; Nixon felt that accepting the terms of the Paris accords would humiliate the United States and lead to defeat in Vietnam.
