"Understanding Kissinger's criminality is vital when trying to fathom
what the US calls its "foreign policy." Kissinger remains an influential
voice in Washington, admired and consulted by Barack Obama. When
Israel, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Bahrain commit crimes with US collusion

Syria must not have chemical weapons, but Israel can have them and use
them. Iran must not have a nuclear program, but Israel can have more
nuclear weapons than Britain. This is known as "realism" or realpolitik
by Anglo-American academics and think-tanks that claim expertise in
"counter-terrorism" and "national security," which are Orwellian terms
meaning the opposite."
