Self-parody is the most brutal parody of all:
Look, anybody can find a random hack to make a howlingly false claim that America’s allies had no warning that a withdrawal with a deadline established before the current president was even in office was coming. But finding the least credible possible source for the claim is extra special. I mean, if I want to know how to end a failed war in a timely manner with a minimum of bloodshed and chaos, absolutely the first source I’m going to consult is Henry Kissinger.
Over to you, Anthony:
Once you’ve been to Cambodia, you’ll never stop wanting to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands. You will never again be able to open a newspaper and read about that treacherous, prevaricating, murderous scumbag sitting down for a nice chat with Charlie Rose or attending some black-tie affair for a new glossy magazine without choking. Witness what Henry did in Cambodia – the fruits of his genius for statesmanship – and you will never understand why he’s not sitting in the dock at The Hague next to Milošević.
