...He was also a very welcome guest in Islamabad and Jakarta.... There were between "friend," "real friend," and "brother". 1. "Friend" of Kissinger: China (through his hardwork to contain Russian in the Cold Era), oil rich countries in Middle East. He don't like them, but he needed them. 2. "Real Friend" of Kissinger: Indonesia (Soeharto who killed hundreds of thousands people), India, Chile, and all anti-Communists governments around the world, no matter they were under dictators under democracies. 3. "Brother" of Kissinger: only one country fit in this criteria, it was Israel. Islamabad was an-"AXIS" of Russia, you mention her as friend of US because you don't know nothing about Cold War alliances. Unlike Bush, Nixon and Kissinger won't hesitate to talk directly to all of their enemies. Shuttle diplmacy had nothing to do with the level of hostilities between US and those countries.
