After candidate Donald Trump sojourned to the New York home of Henry Kissinger last May, it was obvious his rhetoric about draining the swamp was little more than a disingenuous advertising slogan. Kissinger sits near the top of the globalist totem, revered as an elder statesman by the political class.
On October 10, President Trump met with Kissinger in the Oval Office, reportedly to discuss North Korea. During a photo op Trump said the former secretary of state is a “man of immense, talent, experience and knowledge.”

“Henry Kissinger has been a friend of mine,” Trump added, sitting beside the nonagenarian. “I’ve liked him. I’ve respected him. But we've been friends for a long time, long before my emergence into the world of politics, which has not been too long.”

In other words, Donald Trump admires the crimes of Henry Kissinger. However, considering Trump’s dubious comprehension of politics and history, it is entirely possible he only vaguely understands Kissinger conspired to commit murder and was the driving force behind acts defined as war crimes, most notoriously murdering millions of people in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Despite previous criticism of interventionism and nation-building, Trump considers elements of Kissinger’s version of realpolitik useful for his foreign policy agenda.

One can’t get more globalist than the Rockefellers, and Kissinger served the clan as a trusted consigliere for a decade. Kissinger has been a member of the Council on Foreign Relations since 1956 and served as a member of its Board of Directors from 1977 to 1981. The CFR was established in 1921 by Col. Edward Mandell House, chief adviser to President Woodrow Wilson, and was financed by John D. Rockefeller along with J.P. Morgan and other bankers. Kissinger is also a regular fixture at annual Bilderberg meetings established by Prince Bernhard, the consort of Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. His colorful past includes a stint as a member of Reiter-SS, a mounted unit of the Nazi SS.

Bilderberg and the Council on Foreign Relations are high level globalist organizations dedicated to a world government and financial order dominated by large banks and transnational corporations. Trump has appointed a number of CFR members and bankers to key positions in his administration, including secretary of the Treasury.

“Just as the Rockefellers make sure their capos are running our perennially disastrous foreign policy, you can bet your last devalued dollar that the Rockefeller Mafia controls the national and international money game,” writes Gary Allen. “The Rockefellers have made the Treasury Department virtually a branch of the Chase Manhattan Bank.”
The Trump administration, its foreign policy initiatives decided by military generals, early on emulated Kissinger’s Mad Bombardier tactics.

Within days of entering office as Nixon’s security adviser in January 1969, Kissinger was laying out plans to bomb targets in Southeast Asia. President Johnson had put a halt to bombing North Vietnam as he tried to negotiate a ceasefire, a move supported by a majority of Americans. Kissinger and his military aide, Colonel Alexander Haig, met with Air Force Colonel Ray Sitton, an expert on B-52 bombers, and together they planned Operation Menu, the illegal carpet bombing of Cambodia. A total of 3,630 flights over Cambodia dropped 110,000 tons of bombs during a 14-month period through April 1970. Nixon did not consult Congress and the operation was kept secret. The Pentagon devised an intricate reporting system to prevent public disclosure.

“They have got to go in there and I mean really go in,” Nixon told Kissinger. “I don’t want the gunships, I want the helicopter ships. I want everything that can fly to go in there and crack the hell out of them. There is no limitation on mileage and there is no limitation on budget. Is that clear?”
After The New York Times revealed the secret bombings, Henry Kissinger was apoplectic with anger. “We must do something! We must crush those people! We must destroy them!” Kissinger told Nixon, referring not only to the newspaper but also        Defense Secretary Melvin Laird and Secretary of State William Rogers, whom Kissinger blamed for the leak. His response was to order the FBI to tap the telephones of Rogers, Laird, and Morton Halperin, a Kissinger aide. The White House also illegally tapped the phone of syndicated columnist Joseph Kraft.

In total, the US flew 230,000 sorties on 113,000 sites. A conservative estimate states that 500,000 tons of bombs were dropped, close to equal of the entire Pacific theater of World War 2. Although an exact figure on the number of dead is disputed, it is generally agreed at least 50,000 Cambodians perished. Ben Kiernan, a leading scholar on the Cambodian genocide, estimates the number is probably closer to 150,000. However, a Finnish Government Commission of Enquiry estimated that 600,000 Cambodians died.

“The Americans dropped the equivalent of five Hiroshimas on rural Cambodia during 1969-73. They levelled village after village, returning to bomb the rubble and corpses,” writes John Pilger. “The craters left monstrous necklaces of carnage, still visible from the air. The terror was unimaginable.”
The bombing campaign further destabilized Cambodia’s already destabilized government of Prince Norodom Sihanouk and led to the rise of the Communist Party of Kampuchea, later known as the Khmer Rouge. The communist reign of murder and terror would not have been possible “without U.S. economic and military destabilization of Cambodia,” Kierman explains.

Kissinger told a Thai foreign minister in 1975 the Khmer Rouge “are murderous thugs, but we won’t let that stand in the way. We are prepared to improve relations with them.”
Henry Kissinger is responsible for a litany of terror, including the Indonesian invasion and occupation of East Timor and helping orchestrate a bloody coup in Chile. The Foreign Assistance Act forbids the selling of weapons except in self-defense and this was clearly not the case with Indonesia. Faced with congressional opposition to arms sales, Kissinger reportedly said: “It depends on how we construe it; whether it is in self-defense or is a foreign operation.”

Statistician Gabriel Defert studied data from Portuguese and Indonesian authorities and also from the Catholic Church. He concludes no less than 308,000 Timorese perished under the brutal Indonesian occupation. In his book Timor Est le Genocide Oublié, Defert writes between December 1975 and December 1981 an average of 308,000 Timorese lost their lives. This represents 44% of the population during the invasion and occupation.

Documents at the National Security Archive reveal Kissinger's role as the principal policy architect of the US effort to oust the Chilean leader Salvador Allende and place the Pinochet dictatorship in power.
“I don't see why we need to stand by and watch a country go communist due to the irresponsibility of its people. The issues are much too important for the Chilean voters to be left to decide for themselves,” Kissinger remarked following the coup. He received the Nobel Peace Prize the same year.

Donald Trump shares Kissinger’s indifference to murder. During the campaign he promised to kill the families of suspected terrorists. Trump declared he would “bomb the hell” out of the Islamic State regardless of the cost in innocent lives. During a presidential debate, Trump said he would force US troops to commit war crimes on his behalf. “They won’t refuse. They’re not going to refuse me,” he said. “If I say do it, they’re going to do it.”

Soon after taking office, President Trump surpassed Barrack Obama’s acts of foreign policy murder. Airwars reports as of July 13 more than 2,200 civilians were killed by Coalition raids since Trump was inaugurated. 360 per month, or 12 or more civilians killed for every single day of the Trump administration. In total so far the Coalition has conducted 28,024 airstrikes, dropped 102,082 bombs in Syria and Iraq, and killed at least 5,637 civilians, although the total is likely far higher.

“There remains little doubt,” writes Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Iranian Studies and Comparative Literature at Columbia University in New York. “Donald Trump as commander-in-chief of US armed forces is deliberately, decidedly, purposefully, targeting Muslim civilians. Are these not war crimes?”
Far more serious war crimes may be in the works if Trump follows through on his demagogic threats against North Korea. His refusal to negotiate leaves but one option: a military attack. This option was underscored by Kissinger in August with an article for The Wall Street Journal. “The use of military force must be carefully analyzed, and its vocabulary must be restrained. But it cannot be precluded,” Kissinger wrote.

Donald Trump has not restrained his “vocabulary.” He continues to taunt North Korea and has repeatedly insulted the nation’s leader. Trump’s behavior has alarmed a number of insiders, including former Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Senator Bob Corker. Following a spate of threatening and belligerent tweets by Trump on North Korea, Gates said he wished Twitter had never been invented. Corker, who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Trump is treating the presidency as if it were an episode of The Apprentice. “It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center,” Corker tweeted.

The “immense talent” of Henry Kissinger, apparently much sought after by Trump, resides in his psychopathic personality and ability to orchestrate the murder of millions of people without conscience, remorse, or congressional approval.
Kissinger is an “amoral sycophant with the instincts of a sociopath and the conscience of a thumbscrew. He should have rotted away his final decades in a cell somewhere,” writes Charles P. Pierce.

But that isn’t how the ruling elite run the show. Henry Kissinger is a much sought after “elder statesman” and although “some historians blame him for countless deaths in places like Vietnam, Cambodia and Bangladesh, Kissinger is more revered than ever in Washington. He has become a Yoda-like figure, bestowing credibility and a statesman's aura to politicians of both parties, including ones who may not actually share his worldview.”

Donald Trump, at best a geopolitical amateur, has embraced the bankrupt ethos of a megalomaniac and unrepentant war criminal. It is unclear at this point if adopting the Kissinger doctrine—fruitless negotiation followed by “kinetic” action—will lead to an escalation of events terminating in nuclear war. Considering Trump's temperament and sociopathic personality, it is a distinct possibility.
