End of an Era: Henry Kissinger’s Death at the Age of 100

Payam Javan: Renowned former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, a pivotal figure in shaping U.S. foreign policy in the late 20th century, has passed away at the age of 100.

The German-born American diplomat served under President Richard Nixon, playing a crucial role in global events, including the opening of relations between the U.S. and China during the Cold War.

Despite accolades for his contributions, Kissinger faced criticism, with some labeling him a war criminal for his realpolitik support of authoritarian regimes, especially in Latin America. His influence waned after Nixon’s resignation in 1974, but he remained active, engaging in diplomatic activities and expressing strong opinions until his recent passing.

Kissinger’s legacy is marked by achievements such as U.S.-Soviet arms control talks, improved ties between Israel and its neighbors, and the 1973 Paris Peace Accords.

He born Heinz Alfred Kissinger in 1923, he fled Nazi Germany in 1938, later becoming a U.S. citizen. Despite controversy, Kissinger’s impact on U.S. history and global diplomacy is acknowledged and commemorated by figures like former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
