And then appears to eat it at a 1992 trade conference in Brazil.
These famous photos, taken by Adriana Lorete, originally appeared on the front page of Jornal do Brasil, a major Rio de Janeiro daily newspaper, on November 13, 1992.
I couldn’t choose a quote of Kissinger’s to contrast with the pics, so let’s just prattle off a few of his lovelier gems, shall we?
“Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the third world, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries.”
“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
“The issues are too important to be left for the voters.”
“Intelligence is not all that important in the exercise of power, and is often, in point of fact, useless.”
“Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.”
Who else but Henry Kissinger could win a Nobel Peace Prize for the secret (and quite illegal) bombing of Cambodia?
And he just… won’t… die.
(Is public nose-picking some sort of Republican thing?)
