No comment - a life in service of the CIA from the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961. A direct link to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The Obama Administration Just Granted Henry Kissinger a Distinguished Public Service Award

Kissinger, again. Yesterday Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter honored Henry A. Kissinger at the Pentagon by presenting the former secretary of state with the Distinguished Public Service Award, apparently the highest award the Department of Defense has for private citizens. Carter himself deserves an award for understatement, calling the man who is responsible, directly or indirectly, for the deaths of millions of people in Southeast Asia, East Timor, Bangladesh, and southern Africa, among other places--"unique in the annals of American diplomacy." Kissinger, Carter said, "demonstrated how serious thinking and perspective can deliver solutions to seemingly intractable problems." As to allegations of war crimes, "the fact is," said Kissinger, he and Richard Nixon "were engaged in good causes."

I truly hope with Donald Trump the world community sees it fit to look at Europe to position itself in a more assertive role in global politics and a peace initiative to disarm the crazies looking for domination by military force.

Can't expect much from the meeting of Theresa May with Dutch PM Mark Rutte. His personal ambition is a job in Brussels ...

May in the Netherlands as she fights to save Brexit deal

We already knew Mark Rutte's judgement is clouded by the AngloSaxon alliance and propaganda. Just as his predecessors trying to be the best pupil of his class. Balkenende en De Hoop Scheffer support for the Iraq invasion and occupation under George Bush Jr. in March 2003. It's the ordinary people who carry the consequences and will suffer in the near future.

Dutch Investigation: Iraq Mission Ruled Illegal

    "George Bush Sr. led a long and rich life that from his days as a war hero was marked by great involvement with his country and the world. Deep respect for this wise former president of the United States."

Mark Rutte's friend lost the HQ battle to move Unilever to Rotterdam

Rutte was even willing to spend €2bn taxpayer's money to abolish the dividend tax for shareholders.

The Leavers will ultimately win ... PM May throwing a bone to the Commons ... vote can take place before January 21, 2019.

Brexit: Desperate May to meet with Merkel, but EU leaders warn no renegotiation of deal

    "It is the 330th anniversary of James II tossing the Great Seal into the Thames, without which he believed no Act of Parliament could be validated, an example of a British political leader under attack attempting to delay the inevitable by stalling the political process." [Source: Rev. Richard Coles]

Steve Baker, the ex-Brexit minister hell-bent on torpedoing May's Chequers plan

After the fiasco of David Cameron, Tory leader and PM Theresa May set red lines which blocked any reasonable deal with Europe.
