Kissinger represents a ruling class faction that wants to extend the olive branch to Russia in order to create conflict within the BRIICS axis. Tillerson was also associated with that faction, and that’s why Tillerson was initially chosen as Sec of State. When Tillerson was forced out it was a sign that the Deep State faction was gaining the upper hand in the Trump administration. The Deep State is more concerned with protecting the cash flow and power base of the military-industrial-intelligence apparatus, so they always need an official enemy to be at war with. Reviving the Cold War with Russia is a good means to that end. Kissinger represents the uber-globalist faction of the elite that ‘s more about consolidating the empire on the international level by subsuming unruly provinces and bringing them into the fold, or dividing and conquering them when that doesn’t work.

Is the veteran US diplomat Henry Kissinger working to secure a rapprochement between the US and Moscow by pushing for an end to sanctions in exchange for the removal of Russian troops from eastern Ukraine?
A flurry of reports suggest the 93-year-old diplomat is positioning himself as a intermediary between Vladimir Putin and President-elect Donald Trump. He has publicly praised Mr Trump, and traveled to Trump Tower in New York to offer his counsel built on decades of lobbying and diplomacy.
A report in the German tabloid Der Bild headlined ‘Kissinger to prevent new Cold War’, claimed the former envoy was working towards a new relationship with Russia.
This would involve the US accepting that Crimea, a Ukrainian territory that Russia seized in March 2014, now belongs to Moscow. In exchange, Russia would remove troops and military supplies to rebels in eastern Ukraine which have fighting a war against the Ukrainian government.
The report did not provide details, but claimed that “sources” said that Mr Kissinger was drawing up a “master plan” for Ukraine.
