The World’s Worst War Criminal Just Said Trump’s Foreign Policy Will Be “Extraordinary”
Donald Trump seems to attract a lot of bad people, from white supremacists to Putin himself. Well the Donald just received an endorsement from the world’s worst war criminal, Henry Kissinger.
Kissinger, who served as Secretary of State during the Nixon years, is known for his role as the architect of the carpet-bombing of Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia, which caused tens of thousands to be killed and created the sabotage that led to the rise of Khmer Rouge, which killed another 2 million people.
Researchers at Yale University discovered that the carpet-bombing campaigns were done without a specific target in mind. This meant that countless innocent civilians could be killed:
“From October 4, 1965, to August 15, 1973, the United States dropped far more ordnance on Cambodia than was previously believed: 2,756,941 tons’ worth, dropped in 230,516 sorties on 113,716 sites. Just over 10 percent of this bombing was indiscriminate, with 3,580 of the sites listed as having “unknown” targets and another 8,238 sites having no target listed at all. “
And now Henry Kissinger, whose foreign policy caused thousands of innocent deaths, thinks that Trump’s foreign policy would be “extraordinary.”
In an interview with CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday morning, Kissinger said when it comes to foreign policy, President-elect Trump “has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president.”
“Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen,” Kissinger said. “So, it is a shocking experience to them that he came into office. At the same time, extraordinary opportunity.”
This just goes to show how Kissinger’s judge of character is. Endorsing a man who isn’t even in office yet, and has already ruffled China’s feathers by taking a congratulatory call from the president of Taiwan. And also flirting the idea of restoring America’s prior relationship with Cuba.
If Kissinger really thinks that Donald Trump’s foreign policy really will be “extraordinary,” this world is in a lot of trouble.
