    Isn't he supposed to be one of the most gifted minds of our generation?

    Brilliant, blessed with lots of choices because of economic class and receiving health-care outside the USA.....

    Coincidence? :eusa_think:

    I have nothing but disdain for a man who plays politics from the comfort of home while other men die on the battlefield of an uneccesary and meaningless war.

    Yes, coincidence. He was in Seoul to give a speech at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

    Kissinger didn't start that war. He found a way for us to extricate ourselves from that quagmire without suffering additional unnecessary casualties

    Talk about Kissinger all you want but he is a man long past his career in Washington.

    Address the slime balls that are still in Washington and playing politics with our troops.

    True that he didn't start the war. But Nixon in his 1968 reelection campaign promised to end it and he, with Kissinger by his side, did nothing but prolong it.

    Much like present day Iraq and Afghanistan its not easy to just pack up and go home. Kissinger had to negotiate with a hostile regime in the midst of military actions.

    But unlike Iraq and Afghanistan, which are being fought by volunteers, Viet Nam was fought mostly by draftees.
