Henry Kissinger Weighs in on Russia-Ukraine War

Currently, the World Economic Forum is having its big meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

This gathering, like the Bilderberg Group and other globalist get-togethers, is all about planning for the future and trading big ideas among world leaders, corporate figures, and important individuals.

One of those who always attends is the former secretary of state, wanted war criminal (in Cambodia), and geopolitical mastermind Henry Kissinger.

Speaking at this year’s Davos, Kissinger said the solution to the Russia-Ukraine war is going to be messy and not what America wants to happen.

What Did Kissinger Say?

Speaking at Davos, Kissinger said NATO and the United States need to become more realistic and stop pushing so hard to defeat Russia.

Instead, they should be pressuring Ukraine to give up a piece of territory and bring the disastrous conflict to an end.

Kissinger is one of the main people who negotiated the idea the US should open up to China and be a trading partner with them. He and fellow travelers believe global “order” is more important than American patriotism and loyalty.

Kissinger said “upheavals” could happen, which will be much worse than what’s currently happening if the Biden administration doesn’t push Ukraine to start “negotiating” seriously with Russia about giving up some territory.

Specifically, Kissinger warned a “new war” fighting Russian forces could be on the horizon if we don’t get serious about Russia and stop pushing it toward China.

Kissinger’s Philosophy

While saying Ukraine has shown plenty of bravery, Kissinger said now is the time for “wisdom” and some “realpolitik.”

This philosophy often attributed to Kissinger is fairly simple: it means looking more at what’s objectively true in geopolitics than what we wish were true or idealized.

In terms of the situation of Russia vs. Ukraine, Kissinger noted sanctions have already been pushed close to their maximum and people can’t continue forever to try to definitively defeat Russia on the battlefield.

His implication that the conflict could turn nuclear is well-advised here, but plenty of people were also upset with Kissinger and others at Davos, claiming they are not presenting a united enough front against Russia.

The Bottom Line

Is Kissinger on the mark here or is he playing games in the middle of a war?

It’s true Russia holds huge power with its oil and can still punish Europe quite a lot. Germany may be claiming it’s ready to cut off from Russian oil, but the facts on the ground don’t necessarily reflect that.

What do readers think?

Should Ukraine give up a part of its country to end this war or should it fight to the bitter end and for “ten years” as Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has vowed to do?
