“Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.”
Tom Lehrer, musician
Henry Kissinger is an inspiration. His legacy says that no matter how many war crimes you help commit, you can still win a Nobel Peace Prize.When Kissinger won the “peace”prize in 1973, I thought two things: 1) men in the USA direct who gets the prize, and 2) it’s dirty, corrupted by the darkest evil of human nature, which celebrates mass murder.
“Once. you’ve been to Cambodia, you’ll never stop wanting to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands.”
Daniel Kuehn @D_Kuehn:
Good Riddance. Henry Kissinger, War Criminal Beloved by America’s Ruling Class, Finally Dies. The infamy of Nixon’s foreign-policy architect sits, eternally, beside that of history’s worst mass murderers. A deeper shame attaches to the country that celebrates him

Sorry for the delay, we had a Kissinger obit ready to go but we can’t find the floppy disk
Update: we found the floppy disk with the Kissinger obit on it and are now looking for a computer that can read a floppy disk
Update: we found a computer that can read a floppy disk (thanks, Nana) but when we inserted the floppy disk with Kissinger’s obit, the disk drive started screaming and caught fire
Update: the fire stinks of burnt blood and bone and can’t be put out by conventional means but we’re pretty sure the disk with Kissinger’s obit has been incinerated because the screaming stopped

War Criminal Henry Kissinger has finally died aged 100.
In his lifetime, he’s been responsible for some of the worst atrocities in the History of the World.
Here is a thread:
Under Nixon, Kissinger oversaw the massacre of millions in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos from 1969 to 1973.
Kissinger was the mastermind behind the carpet bombing of Cambodia, which deliberately targeted civilians, personally approving ALL 3,875 bombing raids in Cambodia.
More than 7.5 million tons of bombs were dropped on Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia — double the amount dropped on Europe and Asia during the entirety of World War II.
To this day, Laos remains the most bombed country in world history.
Henry Kissinger ordered to bomb “Everything that moves and anything that flies in Cambodia.”
50,000 to 150,000 civilians were murdered from the bombings in Cambodia alone.
In Chile, Kissinger played a key role in orchestrating the U.S backed 1973 coup that toppled the Socialist Government of Salvador Allende and installed the Fascist Augusto Pinochet.
Pinochet’s brutal regime murdered thousands and subjected tens of thousands more to torture during his 16-year reign.

Kissinger aided the Pakistani dictator Yahya Khan, against Bangladesh’s Liberation War of 1971, enabling the mass slaughter of an estimated 300,000 to 3 million people.
Kissinger authorized and armed Suharto, the Fascist Indonesian dictator, in his genocidal invasion of East Timor in 1975.
This campaign led to the death of over 200,000 Timorese through massacres and forced starvations.
In 1976, Kissinger gave his preapproval to Argentina’s right wing military junta for their dirty war against leftists, resulting the brutal murder, torture and disappearance of over 30,000 people.
This is only a glimpse into the extensive list of Henry Kissinger’s crimes, and new things are still being revealed every single year.
He has never been held accountable for any of these crimes. And now he has finally gotten away with it, dying aged 100 years old.
Henry Kissinger will be remembered as one of the biggest mass murderers in History.
Dr. Sandra Steingraber @ssteingraber1:
Basically Henry Kissinger radicalized me at age 10.
Read Let This Radicalize You@JoshuaPHilll:
For his entire life Kissinger was unrepentant about his war crimes, and continuously lied about them.
Here he is at age 90 saying that the parts of Cambodia bombed by the U.S. “were essentially unpopulated.”
Is Henry Kissinger Dead Yet?@DidKissingerD1e:

Stephen Harper@stephenharper Nov 30, 2023:
Henry Kissinger combined the theory and practice of international affairs on an unparalleled level that we may never see again. An influential advisor to many, including myself, Dr. Kissinger’s legacy of diplomacy and thoughtful contribution to geopolitics will be sorely missed. My prayers are with his family and loved ones on this difficult day.
Imagine Satan’s delight when Herr Harper’s time comes.
