Henry Kissinger - The Communists’ Friend, America’s Foe
The Chinese Communist Party has many reasons to celebrate the visit this week of its “friend,” Henry Kissinger. He’s 100 years old. He’s been to the PRC over 100 times. And for five decades, he has been its most unstinting and influential shill.
Kissinger has been paid handsomely for his service to Beijing since he first secretly traveled there in 1971 as the advance man for Richard Nixon’s fateful “opening” to the CCP. Late in his life, the former President correctly feared that “We may have created a Frankenstein.”
Another service Kissinger rendered to the Communists is chronicled in Stephen Young’s important new book, Kissinger’s Betrayal: How America Lost the Vietnam War. It describes his secret sell-out of South Vietnam, assuring our ally’s genocidal defeat by their enemies, and ours, in Hanoi.
With the Communists’ friends like Henry Kissinger, who needs enemies?
