Kissinger Fears ISIS Defeat Will Lead To “Iranian Radical Empire”

By Brandon Turbeville

Henry Kissinger has never been one to mince words when it comes to his desire to engage in genocide, the destruction of entire civilizations, or the imposition of Atlanticist world hegemony. In a recent address given to the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Security and subsequently published online in an expanded version, Kissinger lived up to his reputation for stating openly a desire to move ahead with disastrous geopolitical policies.

In his address, Kissinger spoke of a number of issues – Russia, China, Iran, the Middle East, and the “Atlantic Alliance.” Kissinger began his discussion with Russia, warning of Russian “nationalism” which Kissinger considers dangerous to the Atlanticist ideology. He stated,

Putin’s view of international politics is often described as a recurrence of 1930s European nationalist authoritarianism. More accurately, it is the heritage of the worldview identified with the novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky, as exemplified in his 1880 speech at the dedication of a monument to the poet Pushkin. Its passionate call for a new spirit of Russian greatness based on the spiritual qualities of the Russian character was taken up in the late 20th century by Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

Abandoning his exile in Vermont to return to Russia, Solzhenitsyn, in his book On the Russian Question, called for action to save the Russian people who had been “driven out” of Russia. In the same spirit, Putin has railed against what he has interpreted as a 300-year-old Western effort to contain Russia. In 2007 in a Dostoevskyan-like outburst at the Munich Security Conference, he accused the West of having unjustly exploited the troubles of post-Cold War Russia to isolate and condemn it.

How should the West develop relations with Russia, a country that is a vital element of European security but which, for reasons of history and geography, has a fundamentally different view of what constitutes a mutually satisfactory arrangement in areas adjacent to Russia. Is the wisest course to pressure Russia, and if necessary to punish it, until it accepts Western views of its internal and global order? Or is scope left for a political process that overcomes, or at least mitigates, the mutual alienation in pursuit of an agreed concept of world order?

Is the Russian border to be treated as a permanent zone of confrontation, or can it be shaped into a zone of potential cooperation, and what are the criteria for such a process? These are the questions of European order that need systematic consideration. Either concept requires a defense capability which removes temptation for Russian military pressure.

Kissinger also seems to accept the inevitable decline of the United States and the rise of China. Notice how casually he mentions Mao’s bloody reign even after criticizing Putin’s statement regarding the collapse of the Soviet Union, implying that the Russian President’s statement was heresy. He says,

The “Belt and Road Initiative” is being put forward in an international strategic environment that has been Westphalian, defined by the West’s philosophy of order. But China is unique, transcending the dimension of the Westphalian state: it is at once an ancient civilisation, a state, an empire, and a globalised economy. Inevitably, China will seek adaptation of international order compatible with its historical experience, growing power, and strategic vision.

This evolution will mark the third transformation of China in the last half-century. Mao’s brought unity, Deng’s brought reform, and now, President Xi Jinping is seeking to fulfil what he calls “the Chinese dream”, going back to the late Qing reformers, by realising “the two 100s”. When the People’s Republic of China enters its second hundred years in 2049, it will in Xi’s definition be as powerful as, if not more powerful than, any other society in the world and have the per capita GDP of fully developed countries.

In the process, the United States and China will become the world’s two most consequential countries both economically and geopolitically, obliged to undertake unprecedented adaptations in their traditional thinking. Not since it became a global power after World War II has the United States had to contend with a geopolitical equal. And never in China’s millennia-long history has it conceived of a foreign nation as more than a tributary to it, the Central or “Middle” Kingdom.

When it comes to the Middle East, however, Kissinger exposes how the Atlanticist ideology fears the expansion of Iran more-so than that of ISIS, warning that destroying ISIS could result in an “Iranian radical empire.” In other words, ISIS is preferable to the expansion of Iran. He writes,

Across large areas of Iraq and Syria, an ideologically radical religious army, Isis, has declared itself a relentless foe of modern civilisation, seeking violently to replace the international system’s multiplicity of states with a single Islamic empire governed by Sharia law. In these circumstances, the traditional adage that the enemy of your enemy can be regarded as your friend no longer applies. In the contemporary Middle East, the enemy of your enemy may also be your enemy. The Middle East affects the world by the volatility of its ideologies as much as by its specific actions.

The outside world’s war with Isis can serve as an illustration. Most non-Isis powers—including Shia Iran and the leading Sunni states—agree on the need to destroy it. But which entity is supposed to inherit its territory? A coalition of Sunnis? Or a sphere of influence dominated by Iran? The answer is elusive because Russia and the Nato countries support opposing factions. If the Isis territory is occupied by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards or Shia forces trained and directed by it, the result could be a territorial belt reaching from Tehran to Beirut, which could mark the emergence of an Iranian radical empire.

And thus we see the strategy partially revealed. The destruction of Syria and the existence of ISIS in parts of Syria and Iraq prevent the Shia Crescent from taking shape, keeping Iran from being able to influence world affairs through its connections to Hezbollah, traversing Syria, and its influence in Iraq. This is preferable to Kissinger than seeing ISIS defeated, regional players co-existing and working together and, of course unmentioned but always at the forefront, Israel’s ability to continue massacring, murdering, and attacking its neighbors being threatened.

After discussing the Middle East Kissinger then went back to the question of Russia. But while he seems willing to accept the rise of China, he is clearly not willing to accept Russia re-emergence. He says,

The new role of Russia will affect the kind of order that will emerge. Is its goal to assist in the defeat of ISIS and the prevention of comparable entities? Or is it driven by nostalgia for historic quests for strategic domination? If the former, a cooperative policy of the West with Russia could be constructive. If the latter, a recurrence of Cold War patterns is likely. Russia’s attitude towards the control of current Isis territory, sketched above, will be a key test.

Without actually stating the direction he would like to see NATO take, Kissinger hinted that the international organization should move beyond simply defending the territory of member states and move towards “pro-active” aggressive actions across the world. Of course, NATO has already moved in this direction, having launched attacks in various forms against several sovereign nations across the world.

Kissinger’s statements are not news both in the fact that they are currently being implemented as policy or in the fact that Kissinger is simply enumerating an ideology that exists within the halls of the establishment. What is concerning, however, is that Kissinger and the establishment itself would be confident enough to state these ideas openly, aware that opposition is so small and irrelevant, it cannot pose a threat to his agenda.

  1. That snake Kissinger has a forked tongue as usual. Kissinger is a high level Trilateral Commission member, only a hair below Brzezinski and David Rockefeller before they left the planet for Hades, and nobody is more seasoned in geopolitical Hegelian sorcery than Henry.

    China was Ziggy’s baby as the first large scale Technocracy and every Trilateralist knows Iran entered a state of deep globalist capture back in the early 90s, in the aftermath of the Iran-Iraq war when IMF structural reforms and UN Agenda 21 became part of Iran’s rebuilding process. It was at that time “family planning” was instituted, seemingly responding to the NWO hidden hand.

    From official documents going back to 1963 we know Khomeini was a friendly US asset. Currently Iran is becoming Basel II compliant working closely with the Rothschilds’ Bank of International Settlements as Iran implements UN 2030 edicts to include Education 2030.

  2. Why is anyone willing to listen to and write stories about what this psychopath says? I don’t get it.

    • Thanks Eric for being honest. In my opinion, the reason we listen to wacko kissinger is because he doesn’t care about humanity and he does not hide what the plan(s) are for humanity. Sometimes he gives us new info on what is going on. Sometimes we just remember who he is and what he represents. Not good.

      • Heads up, FREEPH, the spooks also run most of alt sphere algorithms planning what news feeds to put out. This programming is mirrored when well meaning individual writers and researchers get caught up in group think and parrot spook memes resulting is a mixed bag of info and disinfo (as we often see here along with outright programming). All the more reason for all of us to network as best we can in open source forums to share info and help each other do logic checks. Cheers. Blue

    • Lightning rod stories distract. That’s part of the strategy of nonlinear disinformation infowarfare intelligence operations, to release blizzards of info and disinfo to overwhelm and confuse the public. Happens all the time in ‘alt’, not only the MSM. It’s also an energy sink, keeping us from positive activism as the clock runs out. Best not to give this beast our energy, imho, expose it and move on.

    I invite everyone to look at the geographical map of ‘The Kissinger Plan’ and then you will see the method to the madness, and why there is war in Syria, Lebanon, and parts of Egypt.
    Lyndon LaRouche exposed Kissinger for what he is, and went to jail on trumped-up (no pun intended) charges of,…you guessed it; TAX EVASION!! etc. Similar to Congressman George Hansen and Congressman James Traficant, all of whom exposed the globalist plans to the people!
    Congressman Hansen suffered torture via ‘dieseling’ and became a dental cripple!
    Even an honest Congressman who exposes these bastards isn’t safe from retaliation….

    • Thank you weewilliewacko for the info.

        No prob; & be sure to tune in to Infowars, Breitbart, Investmentwatch, jordanmaxwellshow, David Icke, and The Vinny Eastwood Show!
        Is-Ra-El tried to orchestrate a war in the 1980’s against Hezbollah in Lebanon, and got their asses kicked heavily. That was the same ops that got a lot of top grade NCO in the USAF killed at their barracks via ‘terrorist bombing’…how soon many forget, but not me!
        There is an Is-Ra-Eli movie out about a tank crew that gets called up to go to Lebanon; it’s really interesting, as is ‘The Beast of War’ about a Soviet Tank Crew in Afghanistan, and the Russian film ‘White Tiger’ (deals in meta-physics a lot).
        Is (Isis worship) Ra (Ra, the Egyptian Sun God) and El (Saturn worship aka The Black Sun).
        Have a good week-end;

  4. Since Kissinger didn’t mince words neither will I. Kissinger is the ultimate neocon warmonger who has indirect responsibility for the rise of ISIS and the many thousands of deaths that have resulted. He has provably caused more death and destruction than virtually anyone on earth. Why do act as if he is some respectable person we should listen to? Hasn’t he already done enough damage?

  5. but an “official” opposition in an “Iranian” empire or anti-west Russia, play into their hands.
    give me security, and you can take my liberty – isn’t that what 9/11 was all about?

    Why isn’t this ‘Thing’ in jail for subversion and obstruction of justice?
    The game he played in Vietnam will not soon be forgotten, nor his opinion of U.S. Military members he referred to as ‘Stupid Cattle to be used’.

  7. If Kissinger really thinks that Iran will be the major middle East power to the detriment of the US empire, maybe he should have mentioned that to GW Bush before he committed a war crime by destroying Iraq, the sole foil to Iran in the Middle East. Once Iraq was gone, Iran had a free hand in the area. America’s stupidity has no bounds!

  8. Kiss it inger is nothing less than the perfect kiss up for the the nwo unholy goat worshipers. Jeep driver to Tavistock to mouth piece.
    Sacrifice the old gaot(s).
    Silver stakes required.

  9. Kiss it up inger is the perfect mouth piece fro the unholy goat worshipers (nwo globalists). From jeep driver to Tavistock to poster boyah.
    Sacrifice the old goat(s).
    Silver stakes required.

  10. Obama freed over 150 billion dollars for Iran, let us hope he was successful in helping them achieve their nuclear program and missiles to deliver. We will get to watch a nuclear incident in the Middle East or Europe.
    Obama felt he must support the radicals and lower species around the world.
