On Thursday president-elect Donald Trump met with former secretary of state, national security adviser, and notorious war criminal Henry Kissinger.
“President-elect Trump and Dr. Kissinger have known each other for years and had a great meeting. They discussed China, Russia, Iran, the EU and other events and issues around the world,” a statement released by Trump’s team reads.
“I have tremendous respect for Dr. Kissinger and appreciate him sharing his thoughts with me,” Trump said.
Kissinger has a lot to share. He is responsible for instigating the 1973 coup that installed Augusto Pinochet in Chile. From 1969 until 1973, Nixon and Kissinger micromanaged the slaughter in Vietnam, and their secret war in Cambodia resulted in the rise of the Khmer Rouge, ultimately responsible for killing millions of Cambodians. Kissinger also signed off on the Indonesian dictator Suharto’s invasion of East Timor in 1975. In 1965 Suharto killed 1.5 million Indonesians with the help of the CIA.
In addition to his hands-on work instigating coups and inciting mass murder, Kissinger is a highly valued globalist. He is a “hand-picked protégé” of David Rockefeller, “recruited from Harvard in the late 1950’s to work for a new Rockefeller Foundation project,” writes F. William Engdahl.
“The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history,” David Rockefeller wrote for The New York Times in 1973. Mao’s Great Leap Forward killed 45 million in four years. In total, the communist leader is responsible for the murder of nearly 80 million Chinese.
Donald Trump’s Kissinger consultation and his consideration of a raft of neocons for cabinet positions demonstrate he is not the great anti-establishment outsider he claims to be.
So far, he has picked the former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Michael Flynn, to be assistant to the president on national security and Rep. Mike Pompeo as director of the CIA. The choice of Flynn and Pompeo guarantee the war on terror, the occupation of Afghanistan, and the not-so-covert war in Syria will continue.
