At the Ruttenberg Lecture, given at the Centre for Policy Studies in London, Kissinger encouraged the destruction of the regime in Afghanistan, saying:
"There cannot be an ambiguous outcome to the war in Afghanistan. The Taliban has to be eliminated and bin Laden and his network has to be unambiguously destroyed…Invoking the spirit of Pearl Harbour, Kissinger then gave World Government a plug:
I know of no other leaders that have so identified the experiences of New York and Washington with the attitudes of their own people as those of the British government… There is still a very special attitude in the relationship between our two countries, and this relationship should be preserved in the years ahead and for the challenges that are clearly facing us".
"This is what has generated this extraordinary sense of unity that I have never seen in America, not even after Pearl Harbor. We have the same opportunity as the leaders who created the post war world between 1945 and 1950, but we have got to get the sequence straight. We have to defeat the enemies and then we will be able to create a community of nations."Henry Kissinger, born Avraham ben Eliezer in Germany, was the Secretary of State during the Presidencies of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. He is a member of the Defence Policy Board, the Council on Foreign Relations and is a Hollinger shareholder. Hollinger owned The Daily Telegraph and many other media outlets during the time that the Canadian Zionist, Conrad Black was at the helm.
Kissinger, who has been the most powerful Bilderberger for the last two decades, is closely connected to the Rockefeller family. In 1971, he was appointed National Security Adviser in the Nixon administration. According to a US News World Report this 'was on the advice of Governor Rockefeller, who described Mr. Kissinger as "the smartest guy available.'
The Rockefellers are, probably, along with the Rothschilds, the most powerful political family on earth.
In 1957, Kissinger said:
"With proper tactics, nuclear war need not be as destructive as it appears."In US National Security Memorandum 200, which was de-classified in 1990, Kissinger is on record as having said:
"De-population should be the highest priority of US foreign policy towards the Third World… Reduction of the rate of population in these States is a matter of vital US national security… The US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries."Describing his feelings towards the Marshall Islands, which include Bikini and Enewetak Atolls, sites of at least 66 full scale US nuclear bomb tests, Kissinger once said:
"There are only 90,000 people out there, who gives a damn?"Kissinger's explanation before Congress, regarding the CIA's 1973 overthrow of the democratic government in Chile, in which the President, Salvador Allende had been killed, is recorded thus:
"The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves."Describing his feelings towards the people of Chile, Kissinger has said:
"I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people".And:
"Chile should not be allowed to go Marxist just because its people are irresponsible."Kissinger and Nixon were responsible for the massive bombing of Cambodia in 1973, which killed three-quarters of a million peasants and disrupted Cambodian society, setting the stage for Pol Pot to come to power and ultimately kill another one-and-a-half million more. Of this period in history, Kissinger has said:
"Why should we flagellate ourselves for what the Cambodians did to each other?"In a 7 March 1999, interview with Leslie Stahl on the CBS news program 60 Minutes, Kissinger was asked:
"The secret bombings in Cambodia, do you regret this today?"He replied:
"No… On the main lines of our policy, I wouldn't change anything."The 14 August 1997 edition of the Greek magazine, Economicos Tachidromos, quoted Kissinger as saying this in an interview in Munich with Greek host, Pavlo Bakoyianni:
"The Greek people are anarchic and difficult to tame. For this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots, perhaps then we can force them to conform, I mean, of course, to strike at their language, religion, their cultural and historical reserves so that we can neutralise their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves or to prevail. Thereby removing them as anobstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean and the Middle East."A chapter in Kissinger’s book 1975 book, On the Creation of a Just World Order, is titled:
"World Order: Modest Methods and Drastic Visions".In April 1975, after America’s hurried exit from Vietnam, The Washington Post quoted Kissinger thus:
"The US must carry out some act somewhere in the world which shows its’ determination to continue to be a world power."In October 1975, before the General Assembly of the United Nations, Kissinger said:
"We say to all peoples and governments: let us fashion together a New World Order."In the 1976 book, The Final Days, by Woodward and Bernstein, Kissinger is quoted thus:
"Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy."In the book, Law and Politics, Kissinger is quoted thus:
"The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a bit longer."Describing the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement, Kissinger said:
"What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system... a first step toward a New World Order."In March 1994, Time Magazine quoted this excerpt from a Kissinger book:
"How to Achieve The New World Order."In December 1997, The Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, quoted Kissinger as having recommended that Israel put down the Palestinian uprising: 'as quickly as possible, overwhelmingly, brutally and rapidly.' Kissinger then added:
"The insurrection must be quelled immediately, and the first step should be to throw out television, a la South Africa. To be sure, there will be international criticism of the step, but it will dissipate in short order. There are no awards for losing with moderation."In his year 2000 book, The Jewish Phenomenon. Seven Keys to the Enduring Wealth of a People, Jewish author, Steven Silbiger, says of Henry Kissinger:
"During Israel’s first years as a nation the United States offered it very little financial or military aid. The huge influx of direct aid occurred during the Nixon administration in the 1970s under the leadership of Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, the first Jew to hold the position. Aid skyrocketed from $300 million to $2.2 billion annually, making Israel the recipient of more US dollars than any other nation."In the March/April 2003, edition of the Mother Jones magazine, we read:
"Ever since the oil shocks of the 1970s, the United States has steadily been accumulating military muscle in the Gulf by building bases, selling weaponry, and forging military partnerships. Now, it is poised to consolidate its might in a place that will be a fulcrum of the world's balance of power for decades to come.I don't know about you, but I would find it difficult to describe a bloke who could say the things Kissinger has said over the years as a nice chap.
At a stroke, by taking control of Iraq, the Bush administration can solidify a long-running strategic design.
‘It's the Kissinger plan,’ says James Akins, a former US diplomat. ‘I thought it had been killed, but it's back.’
Akins learned a hard lesson about the politics of oil when he served as a US envoy in Kuwait and Iraq, and ultimately as ambassador to Saudi Arabia during the oil crisis of 1973 and '74. At his home in Washington, D.C., shelves filled with Middle Eastern pottery and other memorabilia cover the walls, souvenirs of his years in the Foreign Service. Nearly three decades later, he still gets worked up while recalling his first encounter with the idea that the United States should be prepared to occupy Arab oil-producing countries.
In 1975, while Akins was ambassador in Saudi Arabia, an article headlined "Seizing Arab Oil" appeared in ‘Harper's.’ The author, who used the pseudonym Miles Ignotus, was identified as: ‘A Washington-based professor and defense consultant with intimate links to high-level US policymakers.’ The article outlined, as Akins puts it: ‘How we could solve all our economic and political problems by taking over the Arab oil fields [and] bringing in Texans and Oklahomans to operate them.’ Simultaneously, a rash of similar stories appeared in other magazines and newspapers. ‘I knew that it had to have been the result of a deep background briefing," Akins says.
‘You don't have eight people coming up with the same screwy idea at the same time, independently. Then I made a fatal mistake,’ Akins continues.
‘I said on television that anyone who would propose that is either a madman, a criminal, or an agent of the Soviet Union.’
Soon afterward, he says, he learned that the background briefing had been conducted by his boss, then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. Akins was fired later that year. Kissinger has never acknowledged having planted the seeds for the article. But in an interview with ‘Business Week’ that same year, he delivered a thinly veiled threat to the Saudis, musing about bringing oil prices down through 'massive political warfare against countries like Saudi Arabia and Iran to make them risk their political stability and maybe their security if they did not cooperate.’
In the 1970s, America's military presence in the Gulf was virtually nil, so the idea of seizing control of its oil was a pipe dream. Still, starting with the Miles Ignotus-article, and a parallel one by conservative strategist and Johns Hopkins University professor Robert W. Tucker in ‘Commentary,’ the idea began to gain favor among a feisty group of hardline, pro-Israeli thinkers...
Eventually, this amalgam of strategists came to be known as ‘neoconservatives,’ and they played important roles in President Reagan's Defense Department and at think tanks and academic policy centers in the 1980s. Led by Richard Perle, chairman of the Pentagon's influential Defense Policy Board, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, they now occupy several dozen key posts in the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department.
At the top, they are closest to Vice President Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who have been closely aligned since both men served in the White House under President Ford in the mid-1970s. They also clustered around Cheney when he served as secretary of defense during the Gulf War in 1991.
Throughout those years, and especially after the Gulf War, US forces have steadily encroached on the Gulf and the surrounding region, from the Horn of Africa to Central Asia. In preparing for an invasion and occupation of Iraq, the administration has been building on the steps taken by military and policy planners over the past quarter century."
On the other hand, I would find it quite easy to describe him as a genocidal megalomaniac.
What you have to remember, folks, is that this a***hole has been just about the most powerful man on earth for more than thirty-five years now. Deciding OUR lives, deciding the present wellbeing and future possibilities for us and all of OUR children.
Now tell me the truth, would you let this Jew, in whose presence Tony Blair would wag his sweaty, little behind just as furiously as he possibly could, baby-sit your kids?
Henry Kissinger has never seen combat in war.
