An Insult to Canadians: Did Harper knowingly accept the ‘Statesman Award’ from the Hands of a War Criminal?

“The prime minister (…) accepted the foundation’s “world statesman” award from storied U.S. statesman Henry Kissinger, Richard Nixon’s onetime secretary of state.” (1)

Henry Kissinger was likely the most noted war criminal ever to win the Nobel Prize. (…) The sheer scope of his crimes is breathtaking. (2)

“… wanted for questioning by judges in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, France and Spain, Kissinger has a hard time traveling and speaking in public. (3) (emphasis added)

KISSINGER – A chronology of criminality:

  • 1970: as the US was increasingly humiliated in Vietnam, Kissinger pushed for the expansion of the war into Cambodia, authorizing secret bombing campaign to expand the war region
  • 1971: gave tacit approval to the Pakistani military to commit massacres against the Bangladeshi population in the east of the country, leaving hundreds of thousands of civilians dead.
  • 1973: directed US involvement in Operation Condor in Chile, giving orders supporting a coup by General Augusto Pinochet against the democratically elected government of Salvadore Allende that led to the persecution, disappearance, torture and murder of thousands.
  • 1975: approved and supported the invasion of East Timor by General Suharto of Indonesia, which led to an estimated 200,000 deaths.” (3)

Kissinger: A free war criminal– sept. 2010

“The American war against Vietnam, the Pakistani massacre of Bengalis in 1971 (an estimated 1.5 million killed), the operations of the Shah of Iran’s secret police, the brutal Pinochet years in Chile, the secret U.S. bombing of Cambodia that made possible the Khmer Rouge’s genocidal killing fields (1.5 to 2 million dead), the bloody 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus (an estimated 150,000 refugees), the betrayal of the Kurds in 1974-75, the Indonesian slaughter of some 100,000 East Timorese, the war against the government of Angola, the entrenchment of apartheid in South Africa.

No one will ever know how many millions of ordinary citizens were killed, maimed, tortured, brutalized or displaced in these merciless operations. A U.S. Senate subcommittee on refugees estimated that more than three million civilians were killed, injured or rendered homeless in Southeast Asia alone from 1969 to 1975.

And we do know this: By a curious coincidence, all of these horror stories have in common the very man who’s soon coming to Toronto, Dr. Henry Kissinger (somehow the only PhD in the world who’s regularly called Dr.). As Richard Nixon’s national security adviser and both Mr. Nixon and Gerald Ford’s secretary of state, Dr. Kissinger enabled or endorsed every one of them. Readers should know that this statement is really quite uncontroversial. The sources are multiple and well-documented, and include Christopher Hitchens’s book The Trial of Henry Kissinger, which explicitly accuses him of being a war criminal.”GERALD CAPLAN, Toronto welcomes Henry Kissinger, accused war criminal, Special to The Globe and Mail, Published Jun. 03 2011 (4) (emphasis added)
