Kissinger is right, though. The mass killing of Jews could very well be a humanitarian concern.

wait, this guy won the nobel peace prize?

re: #1 Barrett Brown

Which is why Kissinger didn’t give a shit. Since when are American concerns and humanitarian concerns not related?

re: #1 Barrett Brown

If it is genocide, we have a duty to act as Americans to stop it and punish it. So does the vast majority of the world.

The funny thing is how anti-semites like to say that Kissinger was somehow a zionist or cared about jewish interests.

The other funny thing is how Ben Stein pretends that Nixon wasn’t an anti-Semite.

Made me cringe when I saw that. Expected more of that stuff from Nixon to come out, but the face of realism in foreign policy isn’t even sure if genocide is “maybe” a humanitarian concern? Unfit for civilized society - maybe he can become a consultant for the UN Human Rights Commission.

I envision a man with death dripping from his tongue.

I nominate him and Helen Thomas as a lovely couple on Dancing With Satan.

At least they can’t blame this one on the Jews, can they? Well, I suspect they will…

re: #2 SpaceJesus …in fact the great political satirist/songwriter Tom Lehrer stopped composing in 1973 because of this. He said “…awarding the prize to Kissinger made political satire obsolete”. He just couldn’t top it! Wiki

re: #5 Cokezero

Not even just anti-semites. A book I read by Kathleen Christison “Perceptions of Palestine,” fundamentally critical of Zionism, characterized Nixon as having little knowledge of the Arab mindset while demanding some concessions from the Israelis. She wrote that this was his way of doing right by Israel. That said, the Nixon/Kissinger foreign policy was to confront the USSR and stop communism. It’s troubling that our foreign policy leaders had such a myopic view of international relations and even less of a humanitarian rights instinct. I can dismiss Kissinger’s bad foreign policy strategy, but this is something that remains vexing.
