Would the United States have become involved in the Viet Nam War if Richard Nixon had won in 1960?


Do you think that Nixon's peace-loving Quaker beliefs would have had any influence on his decision, (should a president's religious beliefs influence his decisions?) or would he have done the same as Kennedy? It's interesting to note that Nixon served in the Navy during World War II (but never saw any actual combat) even though he was eligible for exemption from military service because of his Quaker religion. What say you?
