If there really was Justice in the world, Henry Kissinger and Dick Cheney would be locked in a small cage in The Hague and forced to fight each other with rusty spoons for their food.

Actually, this is just getting out of misdemeanor level on the scale of evil I associate with Henry Kissinger.

Apparently he is, and I thought he was pretty evil before.

You mean because each of them is the other person's food, right? We shouldn't waste gruel on these two assholes.

Speak for yourself, Subby. It turns out that Kissinger is exactly as evil as I'd always thought.

/And don't even get me started on his responsibility for Tom Lehrer's retirement.

I think we already knew that.

Along with the use of torture as a means of societal control.

Yeah, this is absolutely no surprise to anyone.

Can we just accept that republican foreign policy is "People who aren't Americans deserve to die, and a few American soldier deaths are worth it to cause those deaths"?
And can we accept that democratic foreign policy is "We don't care, let's keep doing whatever we're doing"?

I wonder if the GOP of Kissinger's time had the same "HEY, HE JUST LOVED THE COUNTRY AND TRIED TO KEEP US SAFE, JUST MOVE ON ALREADY!" crowd of apologists that the Dubya cabal had.

It's as if failing to punish somebody for their crimes encourages other people to follow precedent or something.

"[Nixon] doesn't want to hear anything," says Dr Kissinger, stressing the need for secrecy. "It's an order, it's to be done. Anything that flies on everything that moves. You got that?"

For our next act, Ollie North is in fact a traitorous sonofabiatch who should've been hanged.

At 11, Nixon had goons and was pretty farking terrible.

The Argentines were very worried that Kissinger would lecture to them on human rights. Guzzetti and Kissinger had a very long breakfast but the Secretary did not raise the subject. Finally Guzzetti did. Kissinger asked how long will it take you (the Argentines) to clean up the problem. Guzzetti replied that it would be done by the end of the year. Kissinger approved.

That right there is where your story falls apart

Are you saying that Kissinger had no involvement with the Chicago Boys?

Kissinger is an awful man who should meet the worst punishment we have to offer. He, like Cheney, should be tried in The Hague.

1. Ok, fine, 11:00 pm, you pedant.

2. Don't underestimate Child Nixon and the Milkcartongate scandal. Lil G. Gordon Liddy busted two kneecaps that day.

I hate it that Bush gets an easy pass as if it was all Cheney forcing a little kid to do all those bad things. Make it a 3-way between Bush, Cheney and Kissinger and you are up to something.

We've gotta limit theses sorts of things to the topical and our own personal villains. If we're attempting a complete list we'll be here all day chanting the names of the damned. And that's a little creepy.

It might of been, I think he was talking about his Kissinger book in an interview but mentioned if a previous interview about somebody was longer he would have added the matchbox quip.

You're probably correct.

That's the worst punishment we have to offer?

There is video of American soldiers waterboarding prisoners that's been in the public domain for forty years. There's somebody in an American prison being tortured right now.

I am not convinced that grisly, public torture and execution has outlived its usefulness as a deterrent.

I'm aware of the human rights paradox that creates.

So is Henry Kissinger.

I'm deeply confused and troubled by it.

He likes it.

That was the old Hitchens.  He died an unrepentant cheerleader for war criminals.
