Former US secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, has stated that a future witha nuclear armed Iran would represent a change in the world order.
“It means that proliferation is likely to be unchecked after that, thatthere would be many more countries that have nuclear weapons that might beused against each other and against us, and that terrorists might beprotected by countries that have nuclear weapons. That is the fundamentalchange that comes about,” he added.
Such nonsense. The US has been the one encouraging and enabling far too much proliferation, is the main seller of weapons worldwide, and is the main perpetrator of the current arms race against Russia and China. If Iran got nuclear weapons it would make little substantial difference and Iran has shown no signs of resuming such a weapons program. Besides, Russia could install nuclear missiles in Iran any time it wanted to, so the breeding program is not really strategically relevant.
I wonder how much Kissinger gets paid every time he chimes in, as the ‘old wise statesman’, to give his weight to one elite agenda or another?
Kissinger: Nuclear Iran to change world

Former US secretary of state, Henry Kissinger, has stated that a future with
a nuclear armed Iran would represent a change in the world order.
“Nuclear weapons in Iran will change the international situation
fundamentally,” Kissinger said in an interview with Fox News.
“It means that proliferation is likely to be unchecked after that, that
there would be many more countries that have nuclear weapons that might be
used against each other and against us, and that terrorists might be
protected by countries that have nuclear weapons. That is the fundamental
change that comes about,” he added.
“So, therefore, what America needs to do is to determine, together with its
allies, if at all possible, when the point of no return is reached,
secondly, what non-military measures can be taken to induce Iran to enter a
meaningful negotiation, and, third, then to face the question of what other
means have to be used,” Kissinger said.
Tehran’s has been repeating for years now that its nuclear program aims at
The US is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons
against another state.
US president Harry S. Truman ordered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and
Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, at the tail end of World War II.
In response to a question on criticisms about Alaska’s Governor Sarah Palin,
the newly appointed Republican vice presidential candidate and the fact that
she has no experience in foreign policy, Kissinger said that “you can also
say that Harry Truman had no experience in foreign policy when he became
president, and he turned out one of our great foreign policy presidents.”
Here the ironic arrogance of the US statesman is in full bloom: first he
voices concern about proliferation of nuclear weapons in the world and then
hails the sole historical personality to have ordered nuclear bombings and
refers to him as a “great president.”
Kissinger is wanted for questioning in a number of states for his alleged
crimes in the late 1960s through the 1970s while US secretary of state in
Southeast Asia, East Timor, Chile, Argentina and Brazil. He is reported as a
consequence of the numeous legal actions against him to be very careful of
which countries he visits or passes through.
