Going Nowhere in Paris

Kahin, George McT.
December 1970
New Republic;12/26/70, Vol. 163 Issue 26, p11
Claims that U.S. president Richard Nixon is uninterested in ending the Vietnam War through negotiating a compromise settlement. Suggestion that Nixon is committed to maintaining a separate and anti-Communist South Vietnamese state and seems to postulate the permanent division of the Vietnamese people into what he describes as two free and independent nations; National Liberation Front's (NLF) call for a transitional phase wherein power is shared by all Southern Vietnamese factions in a coalition made up of three components.
