Khmer Rouge Defendant Blames Nixon

The legacy of Richard Nixon lives on years after his death and the legacy of Henry Kissinger is once again defamed by his bloody hands of war. Kaing Guek Eav–Duch-the defendant in the Cambodian genocide trial says the policies of Nixon and Kissinger allowed the Khmer Rouge to gain power when they were on the verge of dying out. Nixon’s ill fated decision in 1970 to drag Cambodia into the Vietnam war and to overthrow the government of Prince Nordom Sihanuouk placed in power General Non Lol. Sihanouk then allied with the Khmer Rouge which allowed them to become a revitalized force and eventually to seize power and then unleash their genocidal atrocities.

The defendant ran the main jail and is responsible for his actions. Unfortunately, the United States has never placed Henry Kissinger on trial for his actions in the Vietnam War. Instead, he is allowed to wander the land making money.

Bush Spouts Politics Of Fear In Israel

President George Bush was invited to speak before the Knesset of Israel on a joyous occasion to mark the nation’s 60th birthday, but he could not help using this occasion in order to play political games. He made clear that Barack Obama’s intention to sit down and discuss issues with leaders, including the president of Iran, was an example of appeasement. “Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals,” said Bush, “as if some ingenius argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along.” He then referred to appeasement of Hitler as an example of why that is a wrong road to peace.

Barack Obama returned the fire by commenting: “George Bush knows that I have never supported engagemnt with terrorists and the president’s extraordinary politisation of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American peoplle of or stalwart ally Israel.”

George Bush is a great admirer of President Ronald Reagan, the same man who negotiated with terrorists in his discussions with Soviet leaders. Throughout the Cold War, American presidents sat down with leaders of the Soviet Union who were aiding terrorist groups because it made logical sense. Richard Nixon initiated relations with Communist China and its leader, Mao tse-tung who most probably caused the death of over 20 million people. Was Nixon an “appeaser?” Barack Obama is perfectly correct in continuing the successful American foreign policy since 1945 of discussing issues with our enemies. As the great British Prime Minister Winston Churchill once put it: “Jaw, jaw, not war, war.”

Secret US – Japanese Agreement On Nuclear Weapons

A Japanese professor doing research uncovered a secret document from the Nixon administration in which the United States and Japan agree nuclear weapons can be brought into Japan in exchange for having the island of Okinawa revert to control of its mother country. The document, dated November 12, 13. 1969 was written by National Security Advisor, Henry Kissinger. It states: “Attached is a game plan to be followed by prime Minister Sato and yourself (Nixon) in conjunction with secret United States-japanese agreements on access to post reversion Okinawa to Japan, remove nuclear weapons from the prefecture.” Essentially, the agreement allowed the U.S. to bring nuclear weapons into Japan after Okinawa officially became part of Japan.

It is such documents which frighten many people in the world. Although, this incident occurred over thirty years ago it exemplifies fears that America works behind the scene making deals and conspiring while it insists nations be truthful about their intentions.
