Why did the united states pullout of vietnam?

President Richard M. Nixon assumed responsibility for the Vietnam War as he swore the oath of office on January 20, 1969. He knew that ending this war honorably was essential to his success in the presidency. He expected that the American people would give him a year to end U.S. involvement in the war, and he expected to succeed during that time—believing that his experience in foreign relations, his toughness, and his willingness to bring to bear military and political pressure on North Vietnam would yield a settlement in the public negotiations just opening in Paris.

Which of the following factors influenced Napoleon’s decision to sell the Louisiana Territory to the United states?

Napoleon wanted money for his grandiose plans for military conquest. He also realized the US adjoined the territory, really needed access to the Mississippi river and that it would be difficult for France to defend it against invasion. He probably did not realize how much land there actually was since much of it had never been explored. Napoleon also wanted the British to not gain a foothold in New Orleans and the Louisiana territory. He understood that it was a better situation for him to offer the land for sale in as much as he could not defend it and he'd rather have the US purchase it before Great Britain tried to take New Orleans and give Great Britain more territory, in addition to Canada, in North America.
