The handling of the Ukrainian conflict, and the second-rate attempt to antagonize Vladimir Putin and paint him as an aggressor has failed, if the terse opinion of one of America’s oldest diplomats is any indication.
Henry Kissinger, now 92 years old, remains one of the staunchest insiders in the smoky room, always a move ahead in the game for New World Order dominance.
During the Nixon administration, it was Secretary of State Henry Kissinger who “opened up” Communist China to American diplomacy.
With escalating tensions between the U.S. and Russia, Kissinger blasted the American handling of the Ukraine situation for “backing Kiev at any cost” and basically antagonizing Putin without keeping focus of “long term order” and instead acting recklessly for short-term interests.
Make no mistake, Kissinger – a top envoy for such shadowy globalist organizations as Bilderberg and an advocate of real politik – plays the long game. Long term world order is part of his calculus. Ultimately, Kissinger now suggests, Ukraine will remain a buffer or middle ground between U.S. interests in Europe (via NATO) and the traditional Russian sphere of influence.
RT reported on his lengthy statements, and their significance for the bungled effort in Ukraine:
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has hit out at American and European Ukraine policy, saying it ignores Russia’s relationship with its neighbor, and has called for cooperation between the White House and the Kremlin on the issue.
“Breaking Russia has become an objective [for US officials] the long-range purpose should be to integrate it,” the 92-year-old told The National Interest in a lengthy interview…
“The relationship between Ukraine and Russia will always have a special character in the Russian mind. It can never be limited to a relationship of two traditional sovereign states, not from the Russian point of view, maybe not even from Ukraine’s. So, what happens in Ukraine cannot be put into a simple formula of applying principles that worked in Western Europe.”
What this means is that American leaders under the Obama regime have been clumsy, and handled Russia far too simply. The negotiations are three dimensional, not two dimensional.
Despite the brazen attempt to insert a puppet in Kiev via Poroshenko, use false flags and agitation in Ukraine and lure Putin into direct confrontation by using conflict over natural gas, oil and energy – they have simply miscalculated.
After all, total global integration is the long term goal, and even Kissinger wouldn’t dream of going too far with Russia, particularly at the expense of a working global order.
Clearly, Kissinger is suggesting a much different and more accommodating tact with Putin, and tacitly acknowledging the all out failure to secure Ukraine for the West:
With the armed conflict in Ukraine still showing no signs of resolution, Kissinger repeated his previous proposal for Ukraine to become a buffer, or mediator state between Russia and the West.
“We should explore the possibilities of a status of nonmilitary grouping on the territory between Russia and the existing frontiers of NATO,” Kissinger stated.
“The West hesitates to take on the economic recovery of Greece; it’s surely not going to take on Ukraine as a unilateral project. So one should at least examine the possibility of some cooperation between the West and Russia in a militarily nonaligned Ukraine.”
Kissinger … called for the West to stop backing Kiev at all costs, even as the victims of the conflict pile up. “The Ukraine crisis is turning into a tragedy because it is confusing the long-range interests of global order with the immediate need of restoring Ukrainian identity.”
Obama officials deflected Kissinger’s criticisms.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia until 2014 when he resigned, Michael McFaul claimed the tensions arose when Putin “rejected” U.S. terms to “reset relations.” (Ahostile Twitter crowd countered McFaul, suggesting that the “deal” was always on U.S. terms for NATO interests/dominance.)
Someone as long in the tooth and as deep seated in secrecy and intrigue as Dr. Kissinger understands the fine art of a poking a bear in ways that this administration does not.
Moreover, with the inside track, Kissinger often signifies the official word of the secret establishment – deals that often go over the head of the president and his cabinet officials.
Deep behind the scenes, Putin and Kissinger are working towards the same global government, and Russia won’t be so easily cut out of its construction. Such vehicles as the BRICS development bank reveal a new chapter that is not marked by American hegemony and U.S. imperialism alone. Instead, a basket of world powers will hammer out the new world together.
Welcome to the new world order. It is coming, but Kissinger won’t live to see his dark promise land.
