One of the most controversial figures in world politics Henry Kissinger dies at 100

Zionist Henry Kissinger, the "mentor" of the bloody history of the U.S., was the mastermind behind the embargo against Turkiye during the Cyprus Peace Operation.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, one of the politicians who left his mark on the twentieth century, has died at the age of 100. Kissinger, who was in charge during Turkiye's Cyprus Operation in 1974, was therefore a name closely known to the Turkish public. His full name was Henry Alfred Kissinger. He was born in 1923 in Weimar Germany to a Jewish family under the name "Heinz". In 1938, he and his family fled the Nazis and moved to New York. At the age of 20, he became a U.S. citizen and took the name Henry (1943). He served in the U.S. Army for three years. Because his German was good, he was recruited by the CIA. After his PhD, he started teaching international relations at Harvard. Richard Nixon, one of the shady U.S. presidents, paved the way for him and made him a national security advisor (1969). Afterward, he became secretary of state. He became the first Jewish U.S. Secretary of State.


During his tenure, he led many atrocities, genocides, and wars in world history. The U.S. imposed an arms embargo on Turkiye. Kissinger believed in power, not morality and justice. He favored a pragmatic foreign policy based on interests. Although he played a role in ending the Vietnam War, he was responsible for the carpet bombing of Cambodia. He dropped 257,000 tons of bombs on Cambodia in 1973 alone. He had the blood of 3 million people on his hands. He supported the invasion of East Timor. 200,000 people were killed in the conflict.

200,000 East Timorese died in the conflict. He had a hand in the coup in Chile. He was also involved in the Condor Plan, which he implemented with CIA support in the 1970s. Under this plan, U.S. intelligence supported coups and death squads in Paraguay, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia and, Chile in order to destroy communist and opposition organizations. The Spanish judge Baltazar Garzon, investigating crimes committed under the putschist Pinochet, wanted to question Kissinger. Kissinger admitted that mistakes had been made in the past, but refused to appear in court. In an interview with CBS, he accused those who pointed out the flaws in his foreign policy of ignorance. 3 million Bangladeshis were killed in the war between Pakistan and Bangladesh. He supported the invasion of Iraq.


According to legal experts, he should have been tried as a "war criminal", but he was not. As if that were not enough, he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973. Humanity's trust in the Nobel institution was shaken. Two experts from the Prize Committee resigned when they heard Kissinger's name. The New York Times headlined it 'Nobel Prize for War'. He is said to be a master of negotiation and tactics. He softened relations with China and the Soviet Union, enemies of the United States during the Cold War. After the 1973 war between Israel and Egypt, he tried to ease tensions with shuttle diplomacy. He was also at the center of the Greek-Turkish conflict in Cyprus. Kissinger was of course pro-Israel. He worked to compensate and compensate the Zionists for their losses in the war. He tried to drag the Arabs into internal conflicts, even though he pretended to be constructive.
He went on to become an informal advisor to U.S. presidents and secretaries of state and founded the consulting firm Kissinger Associates.

Joe Biden was among them. He also served on the board of directors of many companies and wrote 22 books. He earned well. In his 100 years of life, he never regretted any of his decisions.

"Accept everything about yourself. Everything starts with you and ends with you. No apologies, no regrets," he said.
