Nixon’s actions to ensure no peace deal before the 1968 election and then ordered a burglary prior to watergate:
“There was a lot to anger Americans, including (1) interference with a U.S. presidential election (2) by a foreign government (3) that more than 30,000 Americans had died defending (4) and in whose defense hundreds of thousands of other American soldiers were then risking their lives. This interference (5) involved sabotaging peace talks aimed at producing a settlement that would allow those American soldiers to come home. Add to that the evidence that (6) this sabotage had the secret encouragement of the presidential candidate (7) who profited from it politically in an election he won by less than 1 percent of the vote. This was a scandal that could have changed history, had it the government not kept it secret.”
Excellent site for huge range of resources on Australia’s involvement in war and peacekeeping operations.
See the Wartime page for some journal articles. Easy to lose a couple of hours here!
(I think it also has the downloadable Official Histories of Australia’s wars)
