Retarded bootlicker towards anyone who hates America.

For example, when the Cambodian genocide happened, he only cited Chinese and Cambodian radio broadcasts which claimed of massive American bombing raids (these raids were not real and were only a trick to get people to leave the cities to the killing fields)

Another example: "Voting for Trump is worse that Hitler"

Recommended books by Henry Kissinger?

>>8966083
Clearly not what he used to be but at least he'll be put out of his misery soon.

>>8966251
all of them lol

World Order is a great introduction to geopolitics

>>8966083
the only important American socialist between Norman Thomas and 2015 Bernie Sanders

>>8966352
Do I read World Order before Diplomacy?

>Trump is worse than hitler because global warming
I mean, China is responsible for most of the CO2 emissions but ok. Chomsky is a pretentious pseudo intellectual who socialists look up to because they think it makes them sound smart when they go around quoting him.
>>8966231
Is Kissinger actually based? My brother constantly rants about how he's just a violent war criminal and a literal nazi so it would be interesting to hear from someone who isn't a communist.
>>
>>8966352
this. i'm a staunch left winger and i don't like kissinger as a person one bit, but world order is a great read.

nazi is inaccurate, war criminal is debatable but probable. like the dude or not, he was a master of geopolitics and shaped us foreign policy away from strict containment during the cold war and more towards the realpolitik we're so familiar with today (i.e. nixon visiting red china). brzezinski is a similar figure, but kissinger's individual impact was far greater.

He was a Jude tho

Got the right idea but can be pretty misguided in its implications
Also utterly based as a linguist

>>8966083
Sellout for DemParty.

For me, Zizek is much better

>>8966083
His critiques of US foreign policy are often accurate. I think that perhaps he might be guilty though of overstating the damage that specific interventions cause. Also I feel sometimes that leftists tend to not properly analyze the enemies of US. The cambodian genocide thing with Chomsky is perfect example. Well I get the tendency. Anytime, you have a hegemonic power, it is very tempting to attribute complete moral authority to the enemies of the hegemon. But I think the complete idealogical view probably blinds a lot of guys like Chomsky to having a more refined picture of reality. Also Anarcho-communism seems really retarded.
>>
>>8966083
Big brain but absolutely milquetoast.

>>8967220
Also I noticed that leftists did that with Assad. Yes, US foreign policy can be very damaging. So many examples to cite from. Iraq, South America, ect. But don't excuse an authortarian dictator who is bombing his people. It's like attributing complete moral authority to the Parthians just because they were slightly less powerfull than the Romans. Not an exact comparison ofc. But I really don't like the intellectual laziness I've seen from people who claim they support universal human rights. The alt right people at least have the excuse of not believing in that stuff.

>But don't excuse an authortarian dictator who is bombing his people
What kind of his people were bombed? White Helmets reports turned out to be fake.
>>
Chomsky was doing anti-Americanism before it was cool. He has legit activist cred too. His favorite and best rhetorical approach is to highlight hypocrisy, but it did get stale.
>>
>>8966083
Massive pseudo-intellectual. Has never produces an actual operational solution to anything in his life.
