Let's not forget that Kissinger knows what he's talking about when to talk to dictators, when to try to get them on your side, and when to wholeheartedly (if secretly) support them. Anything I would say here would be uninteresting in comparison.
【美聯社倫敦十九日電】達成越戰和談的前美國國務卿季辛吉19日接受英國國家廣播公司(BBC)電視專訪時表示，美軍在伊拉克已不可能獲得軍事上勝利，但他也不贊成迅速撤軍，認為最好透過國際斡旋，與伊拉克鄰國伊朗等展開對話，才是解決之道。Kissinger: Iraq Military Win Impossible

LONDON (AP) - Military victory is no longer possible in Iraq, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said in a television interview broadcast Sunday.
Kissinger presented a bleak vision of Iraq, saying the U.S. government must enter into dialogue with Iraq's regional neighbors - including Iran - if progress is to be made in the region.
"If you mean by 'military victory' an Iraqi government that can be established and whose writ runs across the whole country, that gets the civil war under control and sectarian violence under control in a time period that the political processes of the democracies will support, I don't believe that is possible," he told the British Broadcasting Corp.
