    Your views on....

    Firstly this isn't one of those "Hey look what I know blah blah I'm smart" Threads I'm genuinely interested in this man. So can we please keep the discussions in this thread on the actual topic and not constant digs back and forth. So what do you think of Henry Kissinger the 56th secretary of state of the united states the man who's worked with Richard Nixon, Gerald ford, Bill Clinton. Negotiated with people like Mao Zedong, General Pinochet and many more. A controversial fella a lot of people look at him as a war criminal others a good politician. Personally I see him as a very skilled and smart negotiator and I respect him just like I respect Churchill and Hitler. But what do you think of the man.

    Would you like me to change the thread title so it makes grammatical sense?

    EDIT: It has been done.

    One of the few sensible characters in American politics for mine, realised that you cant just blow the **** out of everyone and expect them to love you. Used the little known tactic in US politics of 'rational thought'. Can tell he wasnt American cant you

    CDM, please don't go here again... it's just not good for you. You're still far too young to understand what saying that means.

    He was the Otto Von Bismarck of the 20th Century for mine - a gifted negotiator, a clever political mind, with a pair of brass stones as well.

    I didn't/ don't agree with all his politics or the decisions he (or more relevently that administration) made, but as a political opeator, I thought he was 1st rate.
