Disturbing 1994 Quote from Kissinger
The magazine Economicos Tachidromos of 14 August 1997, referred to a speech Henry Kissinger gave some three years prior, during which he said the following:
“The Greek people are a difficult if not impossible people to tame, and for this reason we must strike deep into their cultural roots. Perhaps then we can force them to conform. I mean, of course, to strike at their language, their religion, their cultural and historical reserves, so that we can neutralize their ability to develop, to distinguish themselves, or to prevail; thereby removing them as an obstacle to our strategically vital plans in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.”
Why do conservatives still refuse to acknowledge at least some form of conspiracy (see Psalm 2)? I guess no one wants to be labeled a “truther” or something like that. It’s not a conspiracy anymore. World politicians are openly advocating stuff like this. They don’t even bother to hide it.
A few years ago I read Misha Glenny’s excellent historical study on the Balkans (in fact, the only good mainstream study on the Balkans; how Glenny was not subsequently banned by every major newspaper is beyond me). Glenny pointed out a number of shady dealings the US and Britain had in the Mediterranean after WWII. I don’t think he mentioned the Kissinger quote. He did reference how Donovan got Hitler to invade Serbia (I think Glenny mentioned that) in order to weaken Hitler against Stalin. Also noted was British support of Muslim Cyprus against Christian Greek Cyprus.
