Henry Kissinger death news

The former US secretary of state passed away on Wednesday.

Former US Secretary of State and Nobel Peace Prize winner Henry Kissinger passed away at age 100 on Wednesday.

The renowned diplomat and influential foreign policy thinker died at his home in Connecticut, his consulting firm, Kissinger Associates, said in a statement.

After quitting the military, Kissinger earned a PhD degree at Harvard University and taught international relations before becoming President Richard Nixon’s top national security adviser in 1969.

He eventually served as secretary of state under Nixon and his successor, President Gerald Ford.

A skilled negotiator committed to realism, Kissinger was instrumental in improving US relations with the Soviet Union in the 1970s and paved a way for the normalization of Washington’s ties with China.

With Kissinger’s stewardship, the Nixon administration’s easing of travel and trade restrictions against Beijing was instrumental in kick-starting China’s rise to prominence as an industrial economy.

In 1973, Kissinger shared the Nobel Peace Prize with diplomat Le Duc Tho for negotiating the Paris Peace Accords, which facilitated the withdrawal of US forces from Vietnam. In 1974, he helped to negotiate Israel’s disengagement agreements with Syria and Egypt, which officially ended the Yom Kippur War.

  1. A Zionist political policy manipulator for many, many years…
    At least the world won’t have to deal with his ‘highly-intelligent’ sociopathy, which caused a lot of damage for the targeted Gentile world!
    No such luck with Chucky Schumer, though…

  2. Isn’t it amazing what Harvard Uni attracts; psychopaths who need self-validation, coupled with delusions of Grandeur…with a former NZ PM there now as a ‘Fellow’…
    Here’s hoping that the Ivy-covered exterior walls will see the Ivy vines invade the soon-to-be empty classrooms…!
    Albert Speer noted that during his time at Uni, the students that those institutions mostly churned out were individuals who were intellectually arrogant, and could not even use a hammer correctly.
    Based on the recent video footage of Rishi Sunak using a hammer, that pretty much confirms Speer’s observations.
    Speer noted also that those who engage in the trades learn life skills alongside their vocational training, and have a higher degree of self-worth as they can actually create something…!

  3. Cremate the b****** and flush his ashes down the toilet of the nearest Zionist Temple!
    That man murdered thousands and connived to have ‘the herd injected’ at a health forum!
