From fighting communism to supporting communism!




Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.--- Henry Kissinger



The illegal we do immediately. The unconstitutional takes a little longer.---Henry Kissinger, New York Times, Oct. 28, 1973




Welcome to the "Henry Kissinger: Unindicted Terrorist" file!

Think Progress In Shift To Right, McCain Embraces Henry Kissinger



Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has known former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger since 1973, but during the 2000 presidential campaign, “McCain’s handlers opted not to have the two appear publicly together,” fearing Kissinger “would taint the image of the ‘Straight Talk Express.’”



Now, in his latest shift to the right, McCain is openly embracing Kissinger. Hotline On Call reports that McCain has chosen Kissinger to be the Honorary Co-Chair for his presidential campaign in New York.

Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who sees what the world is coming to, and is not ok with it...

I don't understand, why is freezing US arms sales to Taiwan a bad thing? And, why do you think it is a bad thing, especially since you are a self-described Ron Paul supporter (who if President, would do much more than just freeze the supply of military equipment to foreign states let alone be involved in other countries' internal affairs)?

Oh I don't think the freezing of arms sales to Taiwan is a bad thing, I think doing it at the behest of China is... If we are going to sell arms to a country, I prefer it be a country like Taiwan.



Believe me, I am firmly against the military industrial complex. I believe that it is the root cause of our down fall.

WE WERE WARNED!



Public Papers of the Presidents, Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1960, p. 1035- 1040



My fellow Americans:



Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor.



This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen.



Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all.



Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation.



My own relations with the Congress, which began on a remote and tenuous basis when, long ago, a member of the Senate appointed me to West Point, have since ranged to the intimate during the war and immediate post-war period, and, finally, to the mutually interdependent during these past eight years.



In this final relationship, the Congress and the Administration have, on most vital issues, cooperated well, to serve the national good rather than mere partisanship, and so have assured that the business of the Nation should go forward. So, my official relationship with the Congress ends in a feeling, on my part, of gratitude that we have been able to do so much together.

No matter what people say to criticise America, if there is only going to be one military Superpower then thank God it's the USA.

I could not agree more, but the problem is how much long will remain so?



The way our economy is heading we may soon look more like Mexico than the U.S. of the 80's. We need to wake up and get smart to the real world.
