He entered negotiations with North Vietnam, but agreed with Nixon to clandestine bombing raids on neutral Cambodia, in an effort to deprive the communists of troops and supplies.Then there’s his god-playing push to overthrow the new democratically elected government of Chile. Kissinger was the main architect of U.S. efforts to oust the Allende government. Assface Henry wasn’t done yet though—he went on to smooth the way for the Pinochet dictatorship to step in and get busy.
Altogether, the US dropped more than 2 million tons of bombs across Cambodia…
More than 50,000 civilians were killed in the country, which is roughly a third the size of France, and millions fled their homes. The destabilisation helped give rise to the brutal regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge movement, notorious for its "killing fields". (source)
When his assistant secretary of state for inter-American affairs asked him what to tell Congress about the reports of hundreds of people being killed in the days following the coup, he issued these instructions: "I think we should understand our policy-that however unpleasant they act, this government is better for us than Allende was." (source)How unpleasant was Kissinger’s boy Pino? The despot was in power for 17 brutal years. During that time 3,000 people were killed or went missing and around 200,000 fled into exile. There are approximately 40,000 survivors of political imprisonment and/or torture.
"I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people," he said. "The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves.” (source)
Sure, for the sick fucks of this world. If Viagra existed in the 60s and 70s, would Kissinger still have been such a phenomenally callous, barbarous, self-deifying, inhumane pile of rhino dung? Yeah probably.
Happy Kissinger is Dead Day to all who celebrate.
I am constantly amazed by man's inhumanity to man.
