To beat the virus, Kissinger writes the US needs to work with the rest of the world, saying, 'the necessities of the moment must ultimately be coupled
with a global collaborative vision and program.'
we could all get instant test, some hydroxychloroquine and ah go back to normal no?
oh and stop eating bats:
Kissinger means liberal in the classic definition.
And he is correct in this statement.
“Kissinger writes: ‘When the Covid-19 pandemic is over, many countries institutions will be perceived as having failed.”
They failed for lies and using this crisis for political purposes.
Let’s try freedom and decentralization next time.
What, exactly, does he mean by saying “US needs to ‘safeguard the liberal world order”???
“Liberal” in classic sense means personal freedom and economic opportunity.
Democrats have perverted the meaning.
Many countries’ institutions are long-running failures.
WuFlu just makes their failures flouresce.
Yeah...I know the Mises meaning.
How to you combine that....with the world order part?
If it werent for Kissinger back in 1972, we might not be having this pandemic.
Actually it was Nixon and Kissinger was only his hatchet man and co-conspirator for it. They both brought this virus into America and the world indirectly through their greedy and selfish actions back in Nixons term of office. They opened the floodgate for China to make inroads into America IMHO.
Screw Kissinger’s leftist world order.
My thoughts exactly.
My thoughts exactly.
Kissinger....the professional globalist...the Architect in fact of much of this mess
“In 1973, Kissinger became secretary of state, thus becoming the first person born outside the US to hold this position.”
Right up there with Renegade (Obama) hisself.
These critical jobs need to be held by Americans
What, exactly, does he mean by saying US needs to safeguard the liberal world order???
He means that consumerism and secularism must be crammed down the throats of everyone on the planet by the United States regardless of how much money and lives it takes to do it.
It was Clinton who delivered America unto Red China. Nixon didn’t even want to do this, but Kissinger, that treasonous bastard, talked him into it.
China was supposed to become the balance against the USSR. So the USA would do everything it could to assist China in matching the Soviets military and industrial might Part two of the K and RN strategy was an unspoken and unwritten but very real and deep alliance with Israel and working with Sadat to pull Egypt out of the Soviet orbit. Back in 1972 to 75 no one could envision the collapse of the East Bloc and the implosion of the USSR.
And cats and dogs and close all the wet markets permanently in China and wherever else they might exist.
Sometimes nature tells us quite clearly we are screwing up but are we as a species smart enough to listen?
pretty remarkable to be almost 98 and writing for the wall street journal..
