Inhuman zionist butcher Kissinger receives Pentagon’s highest honor for private citizens
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has received the Pentagon’s highest honor for private citizens and foreign nationals.
Kissinger, 92, received the Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Award on Monday at the Pentagon for “orchestrating countless foreign policy victories” during his tenure as the national security adviser to President Richard Nixon, a DOD statement said.
During the ceremony, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that while Kissinger’s “contributions are far from complete, we are now beginning to appreciate what his service has provided our country, how it has changed the way we think about strategy and how he has helped provide greater security for our citizens and people around the world.”
Critics say that although Kissinger deserves credit for some of the US’s most significant victories during the Cold War, he had a hand in far more criminal atrocities, including carpet-bombing of Cambodia, supporting Pakistan’s genocide in Bangladesh and so forth.
There is well-established evidence that Kissinger aided and abetted war crimes during his time in the White House advising Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.
James Petras, an American writer and retired professor, said that Kissinger “engaged in numerous wars, military coups in Chili and other countries, invasions of South Africa particularly in Angola, Mozambique, (and) has been involved in military confrontations with Russia.”
“I think there is very little credibility in Kissinger’s policy, now it’s true that Kissinger was much more deceptive in the language he used, he’s less openly belligerent as the current administration in Washington and elsewhere,” he told Press TV on Tuesday.
“But the question I would ask to Kissinger is not the language that’s being used today, but how different the world policies pursued by the US today in the Middle East and elsewhere (are) to the world policies that he pursued throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America,” Petras said.
