Abstract:

This essay contains a fictional correspondence between the military strategist, Sun Tzu, and President Lyndon B. Johnson concerning U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. It expresses the authors thoughts concerning how such a dialogue might have transpired, bringing into play Johnsons preoccupation with his Great Society programs at the beginning stages of the war, and the influence of others in the Johnson administration in the acceleration of the war. References are included where historical facts are introduced. The author claims full poetic license in the use of wording by each of the persons involved.
