Former American diplomat, #HenryKissinger who “finally” died today, was a notable character in international diplomacy and geopolitics.

He gained infamy for ochestrating coups and installing US puppets in South and Central America, destabilisation in Vietnam and other eastern countries as well as support for apartheid in South Africa between the late 1970s and 1990s.

He was driven by the Cold War mentality.

Scholars have recorded that Kissinger declared that, Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) and South Africa were but part of “black Africa”, essentially meaning that he supported racial segregation in this country as well. Illustratively, Kissinger, as US’ Secretary of State, supported the Smith regime and America continued to trade with Rhodesia when the United Nations imposed sanctions on the settler regime. His involvement is blamed on fuelling Angola’s civil war and prolonging apartheid in SA and Namibia. He is said to have had a “disdain for black Africa”.

In the Middle East, Kissinger’s policies were aptly captured by the term strategic ambiguity, which refers to the deliberate use of ambiguous language on a sensitive issue in order to advance some political purpose. It is widely held that this approach had long term repercussions seen in the instability of the region today. – Global | Review & Mail
