Kissinger's contempt for the soldier is held by all of his class.

left: We all know this picture, she had Napalm poured on her.*  This was made possible with US taxpayer funds supporting a corrupt regime that couldn't get elected by its own people. The culprits that authorized this live in the US, are wealthy and have never been brought to trial for their crimes.

We have pointed out many times on this blog that the US harbors many war criminals, many individuals that are “not” dragged through the media and the World Court as committing “crimes Against Humanity”. 

It is never British or American mass murders like Blair, Kissinger or Rumsfeld that are brought to answer for their horrendous crimes.  It was a working class white woman who grew up in a trailer park who was dragged through the mud as the face of a culture of violence in the US military, the epitomy of what was wrong, after pictures of her surfaced in the Abu Ghraib horrors.

It is always working class people that fight the 1%’s wars in the global struggle for profits and market share of whatever commodity or raw material profits them most. The ruling class organizes all the patriotic parades and flag waving when our youth are needed to defend the profits of the global corporations that they control.  The condition of soldiers on their return is of less concern, after all, repairing the physical and mental damage that real (not Hollywood) combat inflicts on people is “money out” , is a public service and we all know how much the 1% resents any form of public service except that which might help line their pockets like when the taxpayer subsides business like sports stadiums or bails out banks.

No, the love of the military grunt is all one-way.  Let’s consider how the phraseology describes our sons and daughters who are driven in to military service to get an education, a job or just to have some security.  The vast majority of young people don’t join the military because they are looking for a good conflict zone to visit.  Unemployment is very good for military recruitment.

Our children are referred to as “Boots on the Ground” That’s it, they’re simply “boots” to be counted. In Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s book, The Final Days they give a sampling of the war criminal Henry Kissinger’s view of military personnel:
“[Haig] tolerated with superhuman strength the abuse that Kissinger heaped on him.   ‘Only someone schooled in taking shit could put up with it,’ Hicks observed to his colleagues.  In Haig’s presence, Kissinger referred pointedly to military men as ‘dumb, stupid animals to be used’ as pawns for foreign policy. Kissinger often took up a post outside the doorway to Haig’s office and dressed him down in front of the secretaries for alleged acts of incompetence with which Haig was not even remotely involved.” (my added emphasis) 

and further:

Phi Beta Iota:  Kissinger was a protege of David Rockefeller, and can be considered the arch-type for the intersection of New York money and “the German disease” as well as the Nazi hydra co-existing with the Zionist “anything goes, USA is a shicksa” culture.  This is not the kind of individual that should be given power by the people, and this is precisely the kind of individual that has helped spawn multiple generations of psychopaths in power.  All the checks and balances have been systematically neutralized by money — not just corruption, but money spent to create information pathologies that confuse, obscure, and enable great crimes against humanity — including the US middle class, blue collar masters, and poor without a hope in the USA.

As we pointed out in a commentaries (here and here)  we are being conned yet again as the architects of war want more money to go after some of their former pals.  As the disaster called US foreign policy takes the world from one catastrophe to another we are supposed to believe that the beheading of two American journalists is the motive behind their actions.  They are liars. We have no say in foreign policy like we have no say in the deals made in Congress about domestic policy.  We are only expected to pay in the form of declining living standards and substandard social services when the bill comes due.

Let us not lose sight of the fact that the rotten capitalist system was dragged form the edge of the abyss by public funds. They socialize losses but privatize profits.

Kissinger is a war criminal and should be treated as such, just like Bush, Rumsfeld, Blair, Obama; they have nothing but contempt for working class people. It’s not enough to hate or distrust them and remove ourselves from politics. The victims of US foreign policy both domestic and foreign deserve justice. It is politics that can change this situation. Our greatest enemies are closer than you think

Woodward and Bernstein quoted at the: Public Intelligence Blog
* Napalm is a mixture of a thickening/gelling agent and petroleum or a similar fuel for use in an incendiary device.The US military supplied it to its stooges ion Vietnam and both military's poured this nasty stuff on humans.
