  • U.S. Arms Helped Indonesia Attack East Timor (History involving Ford and Kissinger-revisited)

    UNITED NATIONS, Jan. 24 -- U.S. political and military support for Indonesia was vital to its ability to invade East Timor in December 1975 and to sustain a brutal 24-year occupation that cost the lives of at least 100,000 people, parts of a Timorese inquiry made public Tuesday show. East Timor's Commission for Reception, Truth and Reconciliation contended that the Ford administration "turned a blind eye" to the Indonesian invasion even though it knew that U.S.-supplied arms would be used to carry it out. The report called on the United States, France, Britain and other military backers of Indonesia to...

    One insistent question that will shape 2017 is whether we're witnessing the gradual decay of the post-World War II international order, dominated by the economic and military power of the United States. After the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991, it became fashionable to talk of the United States as the only true superpower. Pax Americana... ...It wasn't. Obviously, this reassuring vision no longer describes the real world, if it ever did. On all fronts, the actual future confounds the imagined future. Economies around the world have slowed. In virtually every major country — the United States, China, Germany — growth...
  • New files show Kissinger, Gorbachev upset by Thatcher's fall

    Associated Press ^ | Dec 30, 2016 9:08 AM EST
    Newly released British government files show that leaders and top diplomats were taken by surprise and deeply upset by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s fall from power in November 1990. One of the first responses to Thatcher’s removal as Conservative Party leader and prime minister came from former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who said in a note to Thatcher it was “worse than a death in the family.” […] Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev wrote an affectionate note that for the first time referred to the iron-willed Thatcher as “Margaret.” …

    Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says President-elect Donald Trump could go down as one of the most consequential presidents in history due to the radical shift he represents from the established world order. “I believe he has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president,” Mr. Kissinger said in an interview that aired Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” He said the power vacuum left by America’s withdrawal from the international stage under President Obama gives Mr. Trump the chance to craft a lasting foreign policy that breaks significantly from the status quo. “Here is...

    HONG KONG, Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger met with China's Xi Jinping on Friday, a visit Kissinger described as timely in a moment of political transition in the United States. The meeting was held as President-elect Donald Trump took a phone call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, an unprecedented move that could cause friction in U.S.-China relations. On Friday, Xi told Kissinger, "The presidential election has taken place in the United States and we are now in the key moment. We, on the Chinese side, are watching the situation very closely. Now it is...

    KIROVSK, Murmanskaya Oblast - The 30,000 inhabitants of this Arctic town in the middle of the vast Kola Peninsula pride themselves on being happy and hospitable. There are reasons for this: For an industrial town, the multicolored buildings look refreshingly pristine and the view is panoramic, especially this time of year, when the sun always hangs in the sky, except for an occasional dip behind the barren and breathtaking Khibiny mountains. But life hasn't always been so idyllic. Like hundreds of other outcroppings in Stalin's gulag system, Kirovsk was designed as a labor camp of death and detainment. It is...
  • The truth about the Yom Kippur war, Nixon and Kissinger

    This month marks the 43rd anniversary of the Yom Kippur War. We have been fed some false information about this war. For starters, Israel did not strike first unlike in the 1967 Six day war when Israel was forced to launch a pre-emptive strike as her enemies amassed on her borders and as the UN stood aside and allowed them to do so. The Arabs shot first  On the night of September 25, King Hussein secretly flew to Tel Aviv to warn Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir of an impending Syrian attack. Throughout September, Israel received eleven more warnings...

    So much for that Clinton endorsement. Former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Shultz announced they won't be endorsing Hillary Clinton afterall Friday afternoon, just hours after Shultz said he was pushing his fellow Republican gray-hair to back the Democratic nominee. "We are not making any endorsement in the current presidential election," the pair said in a joint statement Friday afternoon. "We are dedicated to fostering a bipartisan foreign policy and we will devote ourselves to this effort now and after the election." That comes just hours after a report was published that showed Shultz and Kissinger were mulling...

    ..... Dr. Kissinger made the comments as he spoke to participants in the Herzliya Conference via live feed. Discussing the option of a regional peace agreement, Dr. Kissinger expressed his doubts, saying, "I would welcome a regional peace process, theoretically it is a logical evolution. But I believe a step by step approach is better. We are not in a position to take a regional peace initiative, and it is not obvious what it can achieve. You'd assume a regional peace will include states that are no longer function as states – Syria, Iraq, Libya… If any agreement has to...

    Donald Trump met Henry Kissinger, the former secretary of state and long-time foreign policy guru on Wednesday. Mr Kissinger is the latest in a string of policy experts sought out by Mr Trump as he looks to reassure the Republican establishment that he is not, as Hillary Clinton has described him, a "loose cannon". Mr Trump's "America First" foreign policy aligns in part with Mr Kissinger's realist approach, with both men emphasising US self-interest in dealings with other countries.

    TRUNEWS) Russian insider, Alexander Sobyanin, believes Henry Kissinger pitched Vladimir Putin to join the New World Order during their Feb 3 meeting, in exchange for Russia agreeing to bail out western banks and facilitate the Vatican led push for a one world religion. Alexander Sobyanin, a member of the advisory board of the Center for Strategic Environment and a member of the Russian-Iranian Council for Public Affairs, made these comments during an interview with Pravda while describing his analysis of the meeting between the former US Secretary of State and the Russian President. When asked about the objectives of Kissinger’s...

    You know things are pretty far gone when one of the most notorious warmongerers is the voice of restraint in Syria. War criminal Henry Kissinger, who has been involved in escalating numerous crises in other countries for decades now, is actually managing to sound like the voice of rational thought and compromise over Syria. “The destruction of ISIS is more urgent than the overthrow of Bashar Assad,” he wrote in the Wall Street Journal on Friday. “The current inconclusive U.S. military effort risks serving as a recruitment vehicle for ISIS as having stood up to American might.” No one, other...

Their toasts marked the high point of an evening notable for its strict adherence to the protocol and symbolism valued in Chinese culture, but which, at the same time, managed to fulfill the Chinese delegation's request for a thoroughly American dinner party. Guests dined on a meal of pear salad, lobster, ribeye steak and...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 4-17-15 | William Kristol
    I've received several inquiries asking me to spell out some implications of this week's editorial. Here goes: 1) No deal is better than a bad Iran deal. And a bad Iran deal is not just a foreign policy setback. It's a foreign policy disaster. 2) The administration is heading toward a bad deal (see Kissinger-Schultz, and now even James Baker). 3) The Corker bill only helps, if it does, after a deal has been signed—and then 67 votes in the Senate and 290 in the House are needed to overturn a deal. That's unlikely. And a lot of damage in...

    State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf sounded a dismissive tone Wednesday about warnings from two former secretaries of state about the nuclear agreement negotiated with Iran, saying she saw lots of “big words and big thoughts” in their evaluation but not “a lot of alternatives.” Harf was asked during her daily press briefing about a Wall Street Journal column by Henry Kissinger and George Schultz, which a reporter pointed out “raised a lot of questions about the deal.” “I think their piece was a little more nuanced than that,” Harf said, then also disputed another reporter’s suggestion that the assessment by...

Responding to a brilliant op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and George Schultz, Harf moved David Brooks to ask Hugh Hewitt, "Are we in nursery school"?Hot Air: “I wouldn’t say that it’s damning,” Harf said of Kissinger and Shultz’s damning verdict on the Iran deal. “And I didn’t hear...
