Zbigniew Brzezinski Wikipedia
Unlike Van Jones who resigned over past comments and the controversy, this new advisor may have to back up on his recent public comments. Zbigniew Brzezinski, the mastermind of National Security under Jimmy Carter, is now one of Obama’s advisors on international affairs. We saw how well Carter handled affairs relating to Iran, and yet his National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski has not faded into obscurity, but rather into the limelight. In an interview with the Daily Beast website, he replied to the question,
How aggressive can Obama be in insisting to the Israelis that a military strike might be in America’s worst interest?We are not exactly impotent little babies. They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?
He clarified his position farther
What if they fly over anyway?Well, we have to be serious about denying them that right. That means a denial where you aren’t just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse. [Israeli jet fighters and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty in international waters, off the Sinai Peninsula, during the Six-Day War in 1967. Israel later claimed the ship was the object of friendly fire.
The past security advisor clearly makes the point that he thinks Obama should confront Israeli planes if they decide to make a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear sites. These statements have left the American military with their collective mouths hanging open, as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "We will not dignify Brzezinski with a response."
This sort of position is nothing new for the Obama Administration as they have tried repeatedly to undermine the aim of the Israeli government, and the right to defend themselves against a country that wishes to “wipe them off the face of the earth.” Obama’s speech this week in the UN has been called the worst anti Israel diatribe from ANY US Official.
Obama has the need to not only “rule” over our country, but to dictate policy to our allies. These comments will certainly come to a head in the coming days. If Obama doesn’t want to appear as the bully here, maybe Brzezinski, should go on “tour” with Joe Biden every time he makes a major gaffe, or look into an old age home with Jimmy Carter for failed Democratic Presidents and advisors, rather than fanning the Israeli’s flames.
