Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, who helped engineer the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam, said Sunday the problems in Iraq are more complex than that conflict, and military victory is no longer possible.
He also said he sympathizes with the troubles facing President Bush.
“A ‘military victory’ in the sense of total control over the whole territory, imposed on the entire population, is not possible,” Kissinger told The Associated Press in Tokyo, where he received an honorary degree from Waseda University.
Here's Henry in 2002, arguing that our allies needed to get on the War Train:
[A]ction against Iraq is not an obstacle to the war on terrorism but a precondition for it.
Nice, Henry. Glad your sage advice back in 2002 worked out so damned well. Please go die, already. The world will be a better place then.
