America’s notorious warmonger Henry Kissinger died on Thursday November 30, 2023 at age 100.
Kissinger, a “holocaust survivor,” and former US Secretary of State who worked under President Richard Nixon, leaves behind an entire century of war crimes riddled with deception and manipulation.
Kissinger was even known to shape the post-World War II order that sought to orchestrate and support coups, “and meddling in the affairs of nations that didn’t align with US interests and hegemonic agenda.”
He played a significant role in several other massacres such as the carpet bombings in Cambodia, secretly supplying weapons to Iran’s infamous Shah, cultivating deadly rumors during the Vietnam war, and his pivotal role in the US involvement in a vicious military coup in Chile in the 1970s.
Ben Kiernan, former head of Yale University’s Genocide Studies Program, said that Kissinger is responsible for the deaths of over 150,000 people, but the number is much higher according to other experts.
Greg Grandin, author of ‘’Kissinger’s Shadow,” mentioned that Kissinger potentially had the blood of a staggering 3 million people in his hands following his role in extending the Vietnam war, his assistance with genocides in Cambodia, East Timor, and Bangladesh. He was even known to escalate civil wars in southern Africa, and supported coups and death squads across Latin America.
From 1965 to 1973, when the US conducted 231,000 bombing operations over Cambodia, US jets were known to drop more than 500,000 tons of bombs, all while Kissinger was its advisor.
When Kissinger asked how he would amend his testimony before the Senate during a 2010 State Department conference on US involvement in Southeast Asia from 1946 to the end of the Vietnam War, he replied by saying, “Why should I amend my testimony? I don’t quite understand the question, except that I didn’t tell the truth.”
Kissinger even believed that Latin America should be “permitted little independence” and that the region must be “controlled and manipulated by American intelligence” in reference to the CIA spy agency.
Despite mounting evidence of his endless war crimes from China, to Vietnam, Cambodia, Argentina and Southern Africa, Kissinger lived for decades and died unconvicted for his war crimes.
