“How to defeat Serbia”. Foreign Affairs. July/August 1994.By David Gompert.

A Reply by J. P. Maher. Summer 1994.

After Nixon-Kissinger established diplomatic relations with red China the ex-Secretary of State became a millionaire through his investments in Chinese business. This is par for the course, not something Henry invented. After the Nixon presidency he opened up shop as Kissinger Associates. Congressman Henry C. Gonzales of Texas, chairman of the House Banking Committee, has long been looking into the web connecting Kissinger Associates, Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, The National Bank of Georgia, and the BCCI (with its shady links to the CIA and the oil sheikdoms).  Both these banks are implicated in the Iran-Iraq scams that built up Sadam Hussein. Other messy affairs are the Yugoslav Ljubljanska Banka, which was implicated in money laundering, and the Yugo auto company and its arms producing parent firm Zavodi Crvena Zastava (“Red Flag Factories”).

Gonzales has turned up plenty of dirt on Baker, Kissinger and his minions Eagleburger, Scowcroft et al. who have misled the American public on scores of dubious affairs. “Their ethical behavior is deplorable...”.

In their arrogance such public servants passing through the lobbyists’ revolving doors boast:
“... we [Kissinger Associates] are not in the habit of giving free advice.”

Gonzales sagely concludes:

“The National Bank of Georgia therefore must have been a client of Kissinger Associates.”

Winston Churchill, quoted by Gonzales, saw the same moral abyss in the Mother of Parliaments:

“Ministers have come under obligations to great interests; and it can be presumed or alleged that their votes or speeches have been corrupt.”

Gonzales quotes a fair appraisal of the sleaziness of our former ambassador to Yugoslavia Eagleburger, his mentor Kissinger, and a big cast of stars (e.g. Canadian ex-premier Pierre Trudeau), penned by their crony defense industry Gordon Adams, referring to weapons exports:

“You can’t just drive over there. If you want to get into the foreign government, you’ve got to get into the American government.”

Eagleburger gets pensions from such firms; George Bush gave him a midnight appointment to the post of Secretary of State, probably to entitle him to another pension.

Julius Caesar became a rich man with his conquest of Gaul, robbing treasure and selling a million Celtic men, women and children into slavery. In not so distant times the way to a commission in the British Army was to buy it. A military commission was a license to plunder. I think 3,000 was the price in the early nineteenth century. (One hundred pounds was a good annual salary a century ago.)

These are the guys who talk about defeating the Serbs. Whose side do you want to be on? I close with a quotation from one American diplomat worthy of the title, who wrote something as true about the New World Order as it was about previous editions:
‘The Great War began in the Balkans, yet its origin in the hearts of unscrupulous autocrats whose ruthless ambition knew neither justice nor limit; who counted the subjection of a free people merely as the first move in the game to commercial and political supremacy, and in the end to dominate the world. Serbia was only a pawn, to be swept aside as the first obstacle in the path of world conquest.’

Other major positions Gelbard has held include: United States Ambassador to Bolivia; Assistant Secretary of State for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs; and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Inter-American Affairs. Upon his retirement from the State Department in January 2002, Gelbard was personally awarded the Secretary's Distinguished Service Award, the State Department's highest honor, from Secretary of State Colin Powell.

He is married to Alene Gelbard and has one daughter, Alexandra.

Regarding Ambassador Gelbard's appointment to ICN, Chairman and CEO Milan Panic stated, "I am proud to have Ambassador Gelbard join ICN Pharmaceuticals. He is widely recognized as a leader in international affairs at the highest level. His experience in Washington affairs also will help ICN enhance its rightful place in the pharmaceutical industry."
