Henry Kissinger Warns His Mentees: You Are Heading for Nuclear War with China, Which Won’t End Well

March 27 , 2021 (EIRNS)—Henry Kissinger addressed Chatham House/Royal Institute of International Affairs on March 25. It should be recalled that on May 10, 1982, on the bicentennial of the Foreign Office, Kissinger told Chatham House, “In my White House incarnation then, I kept the British Foreign Office better informed and more closely engaged than I did the American State Department.” Also worth recalling: Henry proudly launched genocidal wars across Southeast Asia.

But nuclear war seems to concern him. The “ultimate question,” he said, is whether or not the United States and its Western allies could develop an understanding with China about a new global order. “If we don’t get to that point and if we don’t get to an understanding with China on that point then we will be in a pre-World War I-type situation in Europe, in which there are perennial conflicts that get solved on an immediate basis, but one of them gets out of control at some point,” he said. “It is infinitely more dangerous now than it was then,” Kissinger said, in the age of nuclear weapons. “A conflict between countries possessing high technology with weapons that can target themselves and that can start the conflict by themselves without some agreement of some kind of restraint cannot end well,” Kissinger warned. “And that’s an understatement.”

Beijing is not “determined to achieve a world domination,” Kissinger said, but rather “they’re trying to develop the maximum capability of which their society is able.”
