It seems the Pentagon is planning to implement former US Secretary of State and National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger’s strategy of world domination, says Don DeBar, an American journalist and political commentator.
DeBar made the remarks while commenting to Press TV on Wednesday, after US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter presented Kissinger with the Department of Defense Distinguished Public Service Award, the Pentagon’s highest honorary award for private citizens and foreign nationals.
Kissinger, 92, served as national security advisor and also as secretary of state to former Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford and as a consultant to Washington throughout his career.
The award citation credits Kissinger with “orchestrating countless foreign policy victories.”
“The idea that Henry Kissinger would receive an award from the Pentagon … is not a surprise to me nor it is a surprise that it would happen under President Obama,” DeBar said.
“Kissinger is a war criminal by any definition of the term, and the Pentagon is the preeminent threat to peace on the planet,” he noted.
DeBar stated the Obama administration has been one of the major threats to world peace in the post-war period. “Look at Libya, Syria, much of Africa, threats against Russia and China. We are closer to a world war than we have been since 1962.”
The journalist said Kissinger “was responsible for the deaths of perhaps a million people in Vietnam alone, the horrible coup that took place in Chile resulted into thousands of people being murdered and decades of darkness essentially descended on that country, and footprints like that across the world.”
“It’s like they’re birds of a feather,” DeBar said.
“Ashton Carter saying that Kissinger’s ‘contributions are far from complete’ just tells me that’s he’s, like, implementing Kissinger’s strategy, which is essentially of world domination and destruction,” the analyst observed.
During the award ceremony, Carter said on Monday 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.”
