The Yom Kippur War

Recall Kissinger’s perspective: In Haig’s presence, Kissinger is claimed to have referred pointedly to military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy.  READ THE ARTICLE.  Understand that what Smedley Butler said about war being a racket is true TODAY!

The secret file, written by the Soviet Ambassador in Cairo, Vladimir M. Vinogradov, apparently a draft for a memorandum addressed to the Soviet politbureau, describes the 1973 October War as a collusive enterprise between US, Egyptian and Israeli leaders, orchestrated by Henry Kissinger. If you are an Egyptian reader this revelation is likely to upset you. I, an Israeli who fought the Egyptians in the 1973 war, was equally upset and distressed, – yet still excited by the discovery. For an American it is likely to come as a shock.
