Henry Kissinger discusses war and more with Peter Robinson as part of the Hoover Institution's interview series, Uncommon Knowledge.
War and the media - the two have not partnered so well since Vietnam. But in the days of the Internet, conservative talk radio, and Fox News, has the dynamic changed?
Kissinger says only a bit, and that the media remain heavily biased against military action.
Additionally, the 1960s concept that the U.S. government is somehow an evil enterprise is alive and well.
In this environment, Kissinger says our leaders need to present a clearer and more educated vision of the American role in the world- Hoover Institution

(born May 27, 1923, Fürth, Ger.) German-born U.S. political scientist and foreign-policy adviser (196976). He immigrated with his family to the U.S. in 1938. He taught at Harvard University, where he directed the Defense Studies Program (195969). He was appointed assistant for national security affairs by Pres. Richard Nixon in 1968 and served as head of the National Security Council from 1969 to 1975; he was secretary of state from 1973 to 1977. He developed the policy of détente toward the Soviet Union, which led to the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks agreements. He also initiated the first official U.S. contact with China. Although he at first advocated a hard-line policy on Vietnam, he later negotiated the cease-fire agreement that ended the Vietnam War, for which he shared the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1973 with Le Duc Tho (who refused it). After leaving government service, he became an international consultant, lecturer, and writer.

HERE IN THIS VIDEO KISSISNGER LIES ABOUT CLINTON ETC US TERRORIST LEADERS!
MASS MUREDERING NAZI WAR CRIMINAL/TERRORIST BILL CLINTON KNEW 1993 IRAQ DIDN'T HAVE WMD's AND ALSO LATER after 8-22-1995 When General Hussein Kamel, Head of IRAQ WMD's PROGRAM and Saddam's son-in-law defected and told in Amman, Jordan UNSCOM UN Weapons inspectors that HE DESTROYED ALL WMDS 1991. And he specially said then when asked about remaing WMD's in IRAQ:" NOTHING REMAINED!"
I comment I would like to add:
- Of course, the interview was about Iraq.
- Mr. Kissinger puts forward some ideas on the US military action in the mid East as a consequence of the so called "jihad" and radicalization of other arabic/muslim countries.
- However, Mr. Kissinger doesnt say anything about the expansion of the "chicom" (chinese) military/technological and economic "area of influence" (which is directed to mid East countries).
- All in all, I would suggest that US/NATO presence would, in part, be a way to stop the chicom area of influence.
- The P. Rep. of China is a (the) real danger and I hope they would never reach a tech development more advanced than western countries. If so, we will be in serious trouble.
