Henry Kissinger: Now, back to defining a new world order
International Herald Tribune ^ | Saturday, November 6, 2004 | Henry Kissinger

Posted on 11/07/2004 11:56:15 AM PST by Einigkeit_Recht_Freiheit

The election campaign that has mesmerized America - and the world - is over. What remains are the challenges that gave rise to this occasionally frenzied battle and the responsibility of dealing with them. . No president has faced an agenda of comparable scope. This is not hyperbole; it is the hand history has dealt this generation. Never before has it been necessary to conduct a war with neither front lines nor geographic definition and, at the same time, to rebuild fundamental principles of world order to replace the traditional ones that went up in the smoke of the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. . George W. Bush will have to lead an effort to define and then maintain an international system that reflects the new, revolutionary circumstances. . . I supported Bush during the campaign. But the United States cannot tackle this agenda except in the context of a commitment by all sides to healing. All concerned with the future must find ways to cooperate so that the world will again see Americans working toward a common destiny both at home and in the community of nations.

I did a search and did not see this posted.

Kissinger is right on the ball to say that we should not lose sight of the real challenges that await us in the future.

The terrorist threat is minimal in comparison to the confrontatioin we will inevitably have with China, if we are not careful about the nature of its changing relationship with the world. To me Kissinger seems worried and rightfully so.

I see the potential conflict, however, not over Taiwan, but rather natural resources.

1.3 billion Chinese cannot live like Americans currently do, but they will want to as long as we do.

"One cannot evaluate and judge the decisions of yesterday based of the criteria of today", Kissinger is an American patriot.

There's nothing wrong with the Chinese desire for economic progress. As other people join the world economy, we get richer in the long run, not poorer. What's worrisome is the Chinese desire to be a regional hegemon, to have comparable military power as the United States. We must do all we can to prevent this. In other words, we have nothing to fear from a PRC that is a big version of Taiwan. We have much to fear from a PRC that is a big version of pre-WWII Japan.

"Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order [referring to the 1991 LA Riot]. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond [i.e., an "extraterrestrial" invasion], whether real or *promulgated* [emphasis mine], that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this *scenario*, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government." Dr. Henry Kissinger, Bilderberger Conference, Evians, France, 1991

Thanks for posting this.

An excellent analysis by Kissinger. Long, but definitely worth reading.

It also addresses what a disaster a Kerry policy of bilateral talks with N. Korea would have been.

Another major point that should receive more attention is:

"The nations bordering the North Atlantic need to ask themselves the fundamental question that has always underpinned the alliance - that is, what will the allies do for the relationship beyond the international consensus reflected at the United Nations?

Much of European debate today implies that the answer is "very little." To subject common military action to prior approval of the Security Council is incompatible with the very concept of alliance, which implies a special set of obligations. It spells the ultimate disintegration of a world order with the Atlantic partnership as its centerpiece.

The Atlantic relationship, to be meaningful, needs to have a special character. The United States and Europe should be prepared to do things for each other in the sphere beyond the immediate dictates of national interest and without insisting on universal consensus."

Personally, I think Bush has been kicking the hell out of the NWO monsters...including Kissinger's.....re define...that should be an interesting move...we'll catch it...

I think part of skerry's concession speech was on the road to doing that....since this gang has had a NO SHOW on the word LIBERTY for yrs...I found it interesting that, that word popped up in skerry's speech.

Let's spin the globe....

Europe - Almighty England sitting on the fence, looking for leadership.

France exists as a modern day Colonial power and would be equal to Poland if it weren't for North African and Middle Eastern exploitation.

The people in other countries in Africa live miserably lives, although 0.5% of the fortunate are living okay.

Middle East - read above

Russia - The US funded the transformation and more work still needs to be done.

Asia - Excluding American models of Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong?, and Singapore, where else do people enjoy a quality existence?

Australia/New Zealand - Ordered!

South/Central America - Just hope your ancestors were of European descent.

"My country's history, Mr. President, tells us that it is possible to fashion unity while cherishing diversity, that common action is possible despite the variety of races, interests, and beliefs we see here in this chamber. Progress and peace and justice are attainable. So we say to all peoples and governments: Let us fashion together a new world order."

Henry Kissinger, in address before the General Assembly of the United Nations, October 1975)

"1.3 billion Chinese cannot live like Americans currently do, but they will want to as long as we do."

They will want to live as we do now, irrespective of whether we do or do not.

The first thing they teach you in Economics 101 is that we have unlimited wants and limited resources.

I thought the new world order was based on the Reformation and the American Revolution. It's for the people and it's a dynamic plan.
