Obama, McCain, Kissinger: American Realpolitiks

Bear with me on this...



During the presidential debate Obama and McCain had a little back and forth regarding Henry Kissingers's statements and opinion regarding preconditions of diplomatic meetings with Iran.

Here's a recap from the LA Times...

"The candidates each were right when they clashed over what former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said about the wisdom of holding diplomatic meetings with Iran.

Obama was right when he said that Kissinger, in a recent appearance with other secretaries of State in Washington, said U.S. officials should talk to Iranian officials without preconditions.

McCain, in response, mischaracterized what Obama had just said. He implied that Obama had said Kissinger approved of presidential level contacts with Iran. The Democrat did not say that.

Nevertheless, Kissinger later issued a statement to the Weekly Standard as if Obama had misspoken.

'Sen. McCain is right. I would not recommend the next president of the United States engage in talks with Iran at the presidential level. My views on this issue are entirely compatible with the views of my friend Sen. John McCain. We do not agree on everything, but we do agree that any negotiations with Iran must be geared to reality.'"

I was shocked by this exchange. Really? You're both vying to make Henry Kissinger's words a reality in current foreign policy? Henry Kissinger is a war criminal. What the fuck?


Ask the people of any of the following countries about Kissinger's policies...

Argentina
Bolivia
Brazil
Cambodia
Chile
East Timor
North Vietnam
Paraguay
Uruguay

From PBS frontline on the US bombings of Cambodia- "...the devastating American bombing also helped fuel the Khmer Rouge's growth. Former New York Times correspondent Sydney Schanberg said the Khmer Rouge "... would point... at the bombs falling from B-52s as something they had to oppose if they were going to have freedom. And it became a recruiting tool until they grew to a fierce, indefatigable guerrilla army."

Unflattering Photos of Kissinger by Adriana Lorete caused Kissinger's lawyers to send a letter to Jornal do Brasil (a daily newspaper published in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) saying the former secretary of state would file a lawsuit for damages if the newspaper did not immediately cease and desist from selling the photos published of Kissinger at a trade conference in Brazil.

Please lord, please let me get through the election without an aneurysm. Also, his post truly reflects the ridiculousness of my blog. Who do I think is interested in reading about Kissinger's war crimes? What is this blog? Seems like it's just me talking and talking and I'm OK with that.
