Henry Kissinger

“The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer”
“It’s a pity they both can’t lose”
(on the Iran-Iraq war)
“Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy supply can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” [1]

Henry Kissinger (1923)

Excerpts from ‘Davos 2017-A Conversation with Henry Kissinger on the World in 2017’:
-“One of the major achievements, impacts of the President Obama was to withdraw America from some positions in which it was overextended but also to create the feel [my emphasis] that America was withdrawing from the world even from places in which overextension would not apply and in which its contribution remains essential”
-“President Trump has indicated that he would favour a less confrontational and more political approach [with Russia]. I agree with the general attitude…. [Russia] has been the cause of many tensions, but it has also secured the equilibrium of the world”
