It would have been something else if the whale hadn't attacked the Maddox, LBJ had his marching orders to start a war. It cost money to kill a president.

The whole Gulf of Tonkin Incident was a great example of how easy it is to start a war if you really want one. I don't know if the "Maddox" is still around, but the "Turner Joy", which was present for the second day of the affair, was tied up in Bremerton, Washington as a museum ship for a long time and is worth a visit if it's still there.
