Maybe I am missing something here, but what Kissinger said was correct. How is the Soviet Union’s gassing Jews an American problem? It sounds like a Jewish problem to me. The only obligation the United States government has is to its own citizens. Since when did the United States government become responsible for the Jews throughout the world? The United States might choose to intervene, but it is not obligated to do so.
“How is the Soviet Unions gassing Jews an American problem? It sounds like a Jewish problem to me.”
Was Hitler’s gassing of Jews an American problem?
Suppose Nazi Germany had never crossed over their borders and only gassed Jews within Germany?
That would not have been an American problem?
Sounds like an out of context comment, the point of which was we can’t go to nuclear war over the Soviet Union mistreating its own citizens. Nixon WAS a great friend of Israel taht is undenable. He put our troops in Europe on nuclear alert to deter the Soviets from coming to Egypt’s aid against Israel.
. ..and the Leftist stance all around, when it comes to 'public' policy.
BTW...anyone know if Obama is being recorded for history as he speaks in the Oval Office? Was Jimmy Carter recorded? Kennedy and Johnson?
Remember reading - a long time ago - about when practice began and ended; but now wondering...(what I knew 'then' - but have now forgotten/lol.)
