Nixon's Politics Nixon defined the American withdrawal from Vietnam “by insisting on peace with honor (Davidson, p. 900).” Having to leave South Vietnamese government behind, Nixon adopted the “Vietnamization.” Vietnamization involves a “carrot and a stick (Davidson p. 900).” Nixon hoped by using a stick would drive North Vietnamese into a peace negotiation with the Americans. Nixon’s Doctrine is where the United States would shift some of the military burden onto the allies. “Foreign military sales jumped from $1.8 billion to $15.2 billion (Davidson, p. 902).” Nixon and Kissinger looked for ways to contain the Soviet’s power by negotiations. These negotiations were called détente.
