2557Re: 44 Years After JFK's Death, New Assassination Plot Revealed
- Nov 23, 2007IMHO, the RFK assassination was much more consequential in a
historical context and deserves much more attention comparatively
RFK would have indeed ended the Vietnam war within his first term and
served till 1976. Had his never-happened presidency turned out to be
as tragic as LBJ's, he would've been succeeded by Reagan immediately
in 1972. It's also quite likely that Ford, Carter, and the Bush family
would never have been occupants of the White House.
I'm not judging whether that alternative outcome would be better or
worse for the country (even I believe the majority of contemporary and
future generations of Americans would rather want that). My point is
that we would quite certainly be living in a very different world if
it were the course of history. But one could only imagine.
