They agree treatment of Jews in USSR may be a humanitarian concern, particularly if the Soviets turned to gas chambers.
However, is it something the US should risk nuclear annihilation over?
It's the harsh reality of the Cold War era.
When Saddam used mustard, VX and sarin gases on the Kurdish people, murdering thousands, was Iraq swiftly invaded by the int'l community and Saddam deposed, tried and convicted? No. It took about 25 years.
Don't pretend you're not overreacting to these words from Kissinger because it's about Jews and gas chambers. The same calculus would necessarily take place regarding WASPS or any group.
I'm not pretending anything and I'm not a Jew.
I would react the same way to anyone who said, “If they put Jews [or anyone] into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern”.
It's not only an American concern, it's a humanitarian concern.
