The Kennedy Coup d’Etat, Vietnam, and Super-Imperialism

Post by Frankie Vegas on Fri 29 Nov 2013, 10:46 pm

This is a fantastic read written by someone I was very pleased to meet tonight. I recommend it.

Jim Douglass’ unusually successful “JFK and the Unspeakable” gently makes the case that the Kennedy assassination was a watershed event in the evolution of the United States into an imperialist power, and others have made a similar point.[1] The assassination paved the way for a full-scale escalation in Vietnam, the desire for which, if it was not the single cause of Kennedy’s murder, certainly played a role, since the Vietnam fiasco was an immediate and undeniable result. Indeed, anyone studying the beginning stages of the military commitment in Vietnam cannot help but come away with the impression that Vietnam was at least a compensation, a way to keep the military junta ever-waiting in the wings occupied after it had removed JFK.[2]
While everyday Americans may still have the sense that the American Dream, usually identified with the Eisenhower years of peace and prosperity, traumatically ended with the JFK assassination — the years following resembling a sad, slow unraveling of decline marked by more and more inexplicable military adventures overseas — the true extent of the damage of the Vietnam adventure to the basic make-up of the United States, and thus the extent of the catastrophe that was the Kennedy coup d’état, is still unknown."
