Henry Kissinger, the former US secretary of state and national security advisor, is a war criminal who killed millions of people and is a symbol of US imperialism, an American writer and political analyst says.
“He’s the quintessential face of US imperial warmongering and of course wound up getting a Nobel Peace Prize,” said Daniel Patrick Welch, a political commentator in Boston, Massachusetts.
Kissinger received the peace prize by killing two million people in East Asia, “which is what the Nobel committee seems to excel in,” Welch told Press TV on Tuesday.
Kissinger, who was secretary of state and national security advisor during the Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford administrations, remains an influential foreign policy voice at the age of 93.
Asked how Kissinger received the Nobel peace prize, Welch replied that the usual way: Killing two million people in Southeast Asia and then being forced to stop and rewarded for it after five years.
