Okay, I quoted this twice this morning, but didn’t have a source link yet, just mentioned that it was on CNN this morning.
Here you go. Brzezinski in all of his “peaceful” glory:
“I hope the United States acts now in keeping with its commitment. It has made a commitment. I hope Congress supports the president. And I hope we then close the chapter on two years, as you have correctly described, a very inept performance by the United States internationally.
We now have to think in a larger perspective. We have to ask ourselves is the region sliding into an explosion and what can we do, together with others, to avert that.
… it seems to me that he has to go through some symbolic military action because he has committed himself so heavily and I hope the country supports him.
But, beyond that, we have to move towards a wider international effort to deal with the problem of Syria, but also in a larger regional context.
We have to enlist not only our former colonial powers, namely the French and the British, in some joint effort, not necessarily the Turks, who also used to dominate the region.
We have to be aware of the fact that the Russians may use this conflict, if it explodes, to undermine overall our position in the Middle East.
We have to create a situation in which it becomes in their interest to participate in a larger, international initiative to define the rules of the game and the solutions for the current problems which go beyond Syria; that is to say the overall potentially explosive state of the Middle East.” – Zbigniew Brzezinski 01 September 2003 ~ 10AM ET – http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/1309/01/fzgps.01.html
Please don’t tell me I’m the only one who caught this on CNN this morning. I know quite a few on here were watching it at that time.
Remember, this is from the same source who brought you:
“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor” – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Century#.22New_Pearl_Harbor.22
… or, at the very least, the source of the above got its inspiration and guidance from The Grand Chessboard by our grand warrior, Mr Z.Brzezinski.
It’s not the loud, emotional proclamations which should have people take notice; it’s the subtle, quiet infusion of these little tidbits from the people who are actually running the game, which should have you very, very much on guard. Z. Brzezinski has been running the game for a very… very long time!
