During the late 1960's and the early 1970's, domestic and foreign issues grew for the United States. Nixon's presidency began in the midst of the Cold War and the Vietnam War. His policy for war was peace by gradually pulling American troops out of the countries they were stationed in. Domestic challenges such as inflation, the Civil Rights Movement, and eventually the Watergate Scandal received similar solutions. Nixon established many policies such as the 90 day freeze on all wages and prices to better the economy and the National Environmental Policy Act as well as the EPA to help the environment. The United States faced many international challenges, Cold War and Vietnam War, as well as domestic challenges, inflation and civil rights, during 1968 and 1974. The United States was in the middle of domestic and worldly disputes when Nixon was elected president (Doc A). The Vietnam War was the war that most publicized. It was the first war to be televised, making it possible for every citizen of America to see the brutality of the war and of the soldiers there. The war turned Americans against the idea of war (Doc D). Nixon wanted peace and an end to the Vietnam War (Doc B). He eventually began withdrawing American troops from Vietnam in hopes of peace. As a result, her began withdrawing all American soldiers from other countries where they were stationed such as Southeast Asia. This was part of the Nixon Doctrine. He proposed that the United States would provide weapons and money for these countries but not soldiers. Each foreign challenge created a different problem for America domestically. Domestic issues in the United States stemmed from the U.S.'s foreign issues. Because of the Vietnam War and the oil embargo, America's economy reached inflation (Doc C). The war used a majority of America's money for its troops as well as supplying other countries that need America's help. The oil embargo by the Arab

    In 1968 Richard Nixon was elected President. One of the promises he made was to end the Vietnam War. When the My Lai massacre was exposed in November of 1969 there was worldwide outrage and reduced public support for the war. Then a month later the first draft lottery was instituted since WWII. In April 1970, Nixon told the public he was going to withdraw large numbers of U.S. troops from Vietnam. So when he made his television address on April 30 to say we had invaded Cambodia the American people reacted strongly. In the speech Nixon addressed not only Cambodia but also the unrest on college campuses. Many young people, including college students, were concerned about the risk of being drafted, and the expansion of the war into another country appeared to increase that risk. Across the country protests on campuses became what Time magazine called "a nation-wide student strike."…

    Oil, especially from the Middle East, was paid for in United States dollars, at prices fixed in dollars. U.S. President Richard Nixon had inherited an economy in which growth was already sluggish, in which inflation was already troubling. By the summer of 1971, the president was under strong public pressure to act decisively to end the dilemma of rising prices and general economic stagnation (see "stagflation"). Nixon thus released the dollar from the fluctuating gold standard that had controlled its worth since the signing of the Bretton Woods pact at the end of World War II, allowing its value to fall in world markets. The United States suspended convertibility of the dollar on…
