What was President Richard Nixon's plan for Vietnam some of the war?
Nixon had been elected on a promise to Vietnamize the war, meaning more fighting would be turned over to the South Vietnamese army, and to start bringing home American t…roops. When the President ordered US troops into Cambodia and ordered more bombings, the result was a tremendous uproar at home with more marches and demonstrations. Congress reacted to the antiwar feeling and repealed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution which gave the President the authority to send troops and fight the war in Vietnam. The United States did not lose the Vietnam War. Although some may argue that by pulling out of South Vietnam we did just that. In 1972, North Vietnam finally realized that the war was a stalemate. The two sides met and arranged a cease fire. In January of 1973 the Paris Accords went into effect. The US agreed to withdraw all its troops from Vietnam in 60 days. Congress had stopped funding the war effort. The North Vietnamese government agreed to release all prisoners, which they never did.
The mission of President Nixon's Vietnamization plan was to have the South Vietnamese troops do more of the fighting, with the ultimate goal being the eventual removal of …American troops from the country. The Vietnam War lasted from 1955 to 1975.
Richard Nixon strongly desired that the US extricate itself from the Vietnam War. However, it was necessary to bring it to an honorable end.

Perform secret bombings in Cambodia Have the South Vietnamese do the bulk of the fighting Withdraw troops through Vietnamization
Nixon liked football, he played to win. Johnson wanted to create a "Great Society" of peace, education and equal rights. Johnson "Hated" the Vietnam War. He refused… to remain president anymore because of it. Nixon was ready to play "hard-ball", and he did.
He wanted to end the stalemate and remove U.S. troops from Vietnam.
B-52 the North back to the negotiation table; get our POW's back, and then leave with honor.
LBJ hated the Vietnam War, it interferred with his "Great Society" plans, furthermore he didn't want to be the first US President to either start WWIII or lose a war! Conseque…ntly, he escalated the war slowly in the hopes that North Vietnam would "see the light" and stop fighting...after receiving partial elements of US FIREPOWER...a process called "escalating." LBJ knew full well that Red China had entered the Korean War in 1950 after the US invaded North Korea, therefore he would NOT invade North Vietnam. His process of a growing war, slowly began to destroy him, and his health began to erode, culiminating in his refusal to remain as commander in chief for another term. Nixon was a fighter, bred from losing so many battles in the world of politics; commencing with his loss to JFK in 1960. Nixon was so battered, so toughened, so battle (political) experienced, he really didn't give a darn...he slyly engineered peace agreements with North Vietnam, Red China, and the Soviet Union...then sent mass waves of B52 Stratofortress bombers over the skies of North Vietnam and subjected them to maximum effort bombing! Nixon did "multi-tasking", he talked and bombed! Coupled with those bombings, he ordered invasions of Vietnam's neighboring countries Cambodia & Laos in 1970 & 1971; the '70 invasion erupted into violence in the US...the Kent State University shootings in Ohio on 04 May 1970. Nixon was on a mission! (And he succeeded!)
Replacement of U.S. troops with south Vietnamese soldiers
This is the name that was given to president Nixon's secret plan to end the war in Vietnam after the fallout of tet?
Nixon's plan for Vietnamization was to slowly replace the American troops fighting in Vietnam with Vietnam troops. Slowly bringing the Americans out of the war and helping the… Vietnamese people have control over the conflict.

Richard Nixon's Watergate scandal not only ended his presidency but also caused a generation to distrust government and its leaders.

He felt he could improve the United States position through China.
It was pulling the troops out of Vietnam because the war was pointless and unpopular.
