Party Time!

Post by Admin »

The disgusting scumbag known as Henry Kissinger has finally expired.

I vote they bury him, then dig up the entire grave so they can tour the world for people to piss on.

Evil cunt - how typical he lived a whole 100 years.

No love for Henry in these parts, eh?

To be honest, I know little about him. I was 14 when his involvement with government ended, so to me he was mostly just this old talking head. He had a reputation for being very smart and very arrogant.

Reading some things about him today, and I mean literally this day, in response to his death and this thread, it seems like he was the quintessential cold warrior. US vs. the commies, with some other players doing some supporting roles, but totally expendable.

So, yeah, maybe not a good sort of person, but compared to his contemporaries, he stood out for his ability, but was fairly normal for his virtue, or lack thereof.

I still find myself unable to celebrate the death of a human, no matter how odious they were in life.

I think the consensus, and cerftainly my opinion, is that he ranks as the 4th-worst war criminal in all history, only being surpassed by Stalin, Hitler and Mao.

Without Kissinger, there was no Pol Pot/Khmer Rouge, no Peron, no Pakistan/Bangladeshi genocide.

The best obituary I've seen is from Rolling Stone: https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/p ... 234804748/

Bloody excellent debate on who is the GOAT of American war criminals - Kissinger v Cheney.

It's a few minutes in, after a nice roast of Elon Musk.
