Henry Kissinger’s Legacy Of Violence Should Not Be Forgotten

From Jagjit Singh, Los Altos, CA

I write to express my deep concern regarding the recent revelation that former U.S. national security adviser and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was responsible for a far greater number of civilian deaths in Cambodia during the U.S. war than previously acknowledged. As Henry Kissinger celebrates his 100th birthday, it is imperative that we do not overlook his violent legacy.

The bombshell investigation by The Intercept sheds light on Kissinger’s involvement in brutal military interventions across Latin America and Southeast Asia. His actions were aimed at suppressing communist movements and expanding U.S. influence, but they came at a high cost of innocent lives. The survivors and families affected by these campaigns continue to bear the pain and loss, while Kissinger remains unaccountable.

This revelation adds to an already extensive list of killings and crimes attributed to Henry Kissinger. As Nick Turse, author of the investigation, aptly points out, even at this late stage of his life, Kissinger should be held accountable for his actions. The passage of time should not shield him from answering for the pain and suffering he caused.

It is crucial that we recognize the significance of these revelations and engage in a broader conversation about the role of individuals in positions of power. The actions of our leaders should not be forgotten or glossed over. True justice demands that those responsible for atrocities face consequences, regardless of their age or achievements.

As we mark this milestone in Henry Kissinger’s life, let us not allow it to overshadow the victims and their families. Instead, let us remember the innocent lives lost and strive for a world where such violence is not repeated.
