Peace Prize Schmeace Prize | Published: 27 Aug 2003

Saw this doco last night on BBC TWO and it was tops: The Trials of Henry Kissinger

Kissinger was instrumental in creating the coup that toppled Chilean President Allende (Pinochet filling the void), he undermined LBJ’s Vietnam peace talks (prolonging the war by seven years), engineered the secret bombing of Cambodia, and approved Indonesian president Suharto’s use of U.S. arms to massacre 100,000 East Timorese and was summonses by five nations seeking to depose him.

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973.

Please read Ben’s wise comments below…

p.s. The Nobel peace prize is not just for old war criminals and terrorists. In 2001, Swedish MP Lars Gustafsson nominated football.

John,thanks for the links to what you describe as “…the excellent NWO site.” 

It really wasn’t all that excellent to look at (perhaps someone should read Steve Krug?). It was excellent to read though. Very amusing in fact. I’ve never met a real life gun nut before. I’m honoured. I went through a phase of believing in conspiracies, then conspiracies inside conspiracies. Then I worked in government for a bit and realised there’s only tiers of incompetence and ineptitude.

It all looks like a conspiracy if you look at it long and hard but actually the people at the top are as dim and useless as everyone else. Their stupidity is often mistaken for a dark scheme. 

Say hi to Charlton.

The following revealing item on Henry Kissinger is extracted from an article from the ‘New World Order Intelligence Update’ []:’And, fellow-Canadians, as a faint echo of the freedoms we have now lost in this once great Dominion, here’s a robust exercise of free speech, fresh from the Mother Country, which is now impossible to imagine in modern Canada! 

[Henry Kissinger walks out on Paxman radio program in the U.K. after being asked, among other things, if he felt “like a fraud.” Exchange below, as reported by THE GUARDIAN, 29th June, 1999]

Jeremy Paxman: “It’s been 17 years since the last volume of your memoirs. You said you wanted to let the dust settle but [didn’t you] need the distance in order to rewrite history?”

Dr Kissinger: “No I based these memoirs on documents which were as valid then as they are now.”

Paxman: [describes Kissinger’s claim that he ended the cold war as “farfetched”] “What bothers a lot of people is you seem to ignore the human rights of people within regimes with which you’re trying to establish a balance of power.”

Kissinger: “That’s not correct either.”

Paxman: question about supporting General Pinochet and undermining President Allende in Chile.

Kissinger: “We did not support Pinochet. In what way did we support Pinochet?”

Paxman: “You supported the military regime.”

Kissinger: “After the coup we preferred Pinochet to Allende.”

Paxman: “It doesn’t stop there… You’re on record justifying the [behaviour of the] Chinese government in Tiananmen Square.”

Kissinger:… “I have never supported what the Chinese did in Tiananmen Square.”

Paxman: “Did you feel a fraud for accepting the Nobel Prize [for the Indo-China agreement]?”

Kissinger: “I wonder what you do when you do a hostile interview?”

Paxman: [accuses Kissinger of a “wilful misreading of history”]

Kissinger: “It may be a misreading but it wasn’t wilful.”

Paxman: question about the “hundreds of thousands of people killed in the bombing of Cambodia”.

Kissinger: “That’s absolutely untrue. We have no evidence that hundreds of thousands of people were killed… I think this is an absolute outrage, it’s nonsense.”

Paxman: “You don’t deny [the bombing of Cambodia] was secret though?… This was a secret operation against a neutral country…”

Kissinger: “Come on now, Mr Paxman, this was 15 years ago, and you at least have the ability to educate yourself about a lie on your own programme… ”

Paxman: “What’s factually inaccurate?”

Kissinger: “… That’s outrageous… ” [Kissinger abruptly leaves: Paxman calls out, “‘Bye, Dr. Kissinger”!]’

If you’re interested in the ramifications of the coming ‘New World Order’, see the excellent NWO site at

You’ll also find a superb archive of articles on the New World Order [which is impacting and changing us all increasingly] from the ‘New World Order Intelligence Update’, at They are also mirrored at and at Well worth reading!
