"Now we have a problem in making our power credible, " Kennedy told James
Reston in 1961, following his disastrous meeting with Khrushchev in Vienna, "
and Vietnam looks like the place." Thus it was fundamentally to overcome a
strategic impasse that imperial America developed the theory of "limited war,"
