Best Answer

Richard Nixon.

Let's be honest here. U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War ended under Nixon (actually, due to the Congressional pressure, specifically the Case-Church Amendment of 1973), but he hardly stopped the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War ended in 1975 with the final defeat of the South Vietnamese by the North Vietnamese Army forces.

In 1972, North Vietnam finally realized that the war was a stalemate. The two sides met (Paris)and arranged a cease fire. In January of 1973 the Paris Accords went into effect. The US agreed to withdraw all its troops from Vietnam in 60 days. Congress had stopped funding the war effort. The North Vietnamese government agreed to release all prisoners, which they never did. Free elections were to be held in Vietnam. The President of South Vietnam considered the agreement between North Vietnam and the US as a sell out. But it allowed President Nixon to save face and bring the soldiers home. By 1975, after US troops had been pulled out of South Vietnam, the ARVN (Army of the Republic of South Vietnam) collapsed and the North Vietnamese moved into Saigon, ending the war and finalizing the take over of the South by the North.

Our purpose in the war is debated to this day.
