I was still a kid in school when I read William Shawcross's brilliant book, Sideshow: Nixon, Kissinger, and the Destruction of Cambodia. My opinion of Kissinger was formed by my reading of that book and how policies primarily driven by Kissinger led to the Lon Nol coup, the ultimate victory of the Khmer Rouge, three years of genocide, and the inexplicable continued U.S. support for the Khmer Rouge after they were overthrown following Vietnam's invasion in 1978. My opinion of him has never changed and thus, unlike Vladimir Putin, I do not find myself mourning the man.

Kay Pollard Griggs told us all we need to know about Heinz. And it would be appropriate from Putin's double, a full blown puppet that it is, to mourn the master puppeteer Kissinger.

His widowed husband (not a typo!) sure will be sad.

His fav garden evil gnome has kicked the bucket!

One more disheartening reminder that we are living in the geo-political update of "Rosemary's Baby" and there is not one single so-called "leader" who is not in on this despicable global cult bent on controlling all of humanity, ie their dreamed-of One World Order. Frankly, i would like to believe that this is a Putin "double" and that a real and true anti-globalist Putin was conveniently "dispatched"... and not merely bought off. One likes to have an adult fantasy from time to time. As for Kissinger: Adios, and What took you so long? Question: Why do so many of these lizards live so long? David Rockefeller was 101 when he died.

Well, if I had had any hope that Putin possessed a shred of humanity that would’ve extinguished it. Kissinger was an evil little “useless eater” and only other evil little “useless eaters” would admire him. They’re all a bunch of sadomasochistic serial killers.

I don't see a word in Putin's condolences/remarks calling Kissinger as a man of high moral virtue, so I see no reason to judge Putin's remarks by that criteria. Indeed, it would be out of character for a savvy guy like Putin to wallow in the moralist muck that is the drainage system of The Blob/Swamp/Space Lizard Spawning Cloaca.

Putting aside all the sensationalist rhetoric that has been expended for/against/about Kissinger's works, I see Putin saying, in so many words: "The little shit had balls and understood how unwinnable a nuclear war is."

I mean, if you think Kissinger was bad, you should see the USA Secs of State and various Richilieu analogs before Henry. How creepy is a creep?

I believe that the audience Putin addresses with such remarks is certainly not that of you and I. I believe he's reassuring the various players that, if they don't fuck with him, he won't fuck with them, including their hallowed tombstone accolades. I believe he sees himself speaking to an ensemble of bureaucratic mental ward patients, reassuring them that although he is at the center of actions currently destroying much of what said creeps most cherish ("mine!mine!mine!"), he's really their friend, a good guy, and that's a nice little protection/extortion racket you've got going there, shame to see anything bad happen to it.

Also, I would like to remind us that the world has ever been dominated by despicable leaders even before the first wet dream of a global cabal of ruling elites appeared to Teddy Roosevelt in his sleep, smiling from his dentures on his nightstand.

And now, a cinematic evocation of When Nancy Met Henry:

How come after over 2/3 of a century in America, Heinz didn't drop his thick German accent even a few notches ?

I wouldn't be so strict in my judgement of Putin. He only follows a social norm "never tell anything negative about a recently deceased person".

I am not so friendly in my words about Kissinger - but I am German and no politician

Interesting information about Putin and Kissinger by a former American diplomat and Presidential aide, Harald Malmgren:

"In 1999, Vladimir Putin suddenly sprang from bureaucratic obscurity to the office of Prime Minister. When, a few months later, Yeltsin unexpectedly resigned and Putin was voted in as President, governments around the world were taken by surprise yet again. How could this unknown figure have amassed national voter support with so little media attention?

I had first met Putin seven years before and was not surprised by his rapid domination of the new Russia. We were introduced by Yevgeny Primakov, widely known as “Russia’s Kissinger”, who I had met in Moscow multiple times during the Cold War years when I advised Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon and Ford. Primakov was a no-nonsense thinker and writer. He was also a special emissary for the Kremlin in conducting secret discussions with national leaders around the world.

When Yeltsin tasked his advisor Anatoly Sobchak with identifying and recruiting Russia’s best and brightest, Putin, then a local politician in his hometown of St Petersburg, was top of his list — so Primakov took Putin under his wing to tutor him in global power and security issues. Eventually, Primakov introduced Kissinger to Putin, and they became close. That both Primakov and Kissinger took time to coach Putin on geopolitics and geosecurity was a clear demonstration that they saw in him the characteristics of a powerful leader. It also showed Putin’s capacity for listening to lengthy lessons on geopolitics — as I was soon to learn.

In 1992, I received a call from a meeting organiser at the CSIS think tank inviting me to join a US-Russia St Petersburg Commission to be chaired by Kissinger and Sobchak. The purpose would be to help the new Russian leadership in opening channels of business and banking with the West. Most of the Western members would be CEOs of major US and European companies, as well as key officials of the new Russian government. I would attend as an expert. I was told that a “Mr Primakov” had personally asked if I could make time to participate. I could hardly refuse such a request, and I was intensely curious about the emerging Russian leadership, especially about Putin."

The most fascinating part of the Kissinger saga is probably his sudden meteoric rise from an obscure academic to high office. We know that the Rockefeller family was instrumental in his nomination - and that family benefited greatly from Henry's consequent policies.

So I have always had my doubts about the motivations and actual power of Kissinger. The American elite already wanted to disengage from Vietnam, they were well engaged in quiet diplomacy with China and the Petro Dollar wasn't one of Henry's far reaching ideas either.
