Kissinger? Really? Stop taking this man seriously
“As a father, I can’t get the image out of my head of a man who held up his dead child, wailing, while chaos swirled around him,” said Secretary of State John Kerry during an emotional address late last month about the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The Secretary of State was speaking from conviction that comes with experience. As a Vietnam vet, he testified before Congress how such warfare was used against Southeast Asians, and testified before Congress of “napalm burning their villages and tearing their country apart.”
After speaking in such strong moral terms against people who use violence against innocents, why is Kerry seeking advice about Syria from Henry Kissinger today?
Kerry was scheduled to meet with the former Secretary of State for a “one-on-one,” seeking Kissinger’s counsel on the way forward with respect to Syria.
