Kissinger was against an Israeli victory in Yom Kippur War

In addition to the convincing information that Henry Kissinger “cooked” the Yom Kippur War in order to advance his own goals, there is an op-ed from the war time written by James Reston, one of the leading US journalists. The article that was partially translated into Hebrew in the Israeli magazine “Ha’olam Hazeh” corroborates the “cooking” theory and demonstrates that the US Secretary of State was against Isreali and Egyptian victories. Kissinger’s broader goal is not mentioned in Reston’s op-ed: that both sides will crawl and bid for help from the US. Something that should strengthen the US position in the Middle East and generally.
