Henry Kissinger goes wobbly - says Iraq War is unwinnable

Henry, Henry, Henry:

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.

Kissinger is like all the right wing pundits.

They love war until it all falls apart and then when the country has had enough, Kissinger and his fellow pundits, think the war is horrible.

The people of places like Chile and Cambodia are all too aware of Henry "I caused Pol Pot" Kissinger's love of war.

He's scum in humanform. A disaster for this country and a black mark on all of humanity.
