Brzezinski: protect our enemies from our friends

Posted by Richard on September 21, 2009

Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was National Security Advisor to America's Worst President (so far), is calling for the United States to come to the defense of Iran if it faces attack. No, really. I'm not making this up. In the Bizarro World of today's left, which is reflexively sympathetic to anyone and anything anti-American or anti-Israel, this kind of vile suggestion actually makes sense:

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Zbigniew Brzezinski said the United States should make clear that it will attack Israeli jets if they fly over Iraq on their way to attack Iran.

"We are not exactly impotent little babies," said Brzezinski, national security adviser during the Carter administration, in an interview with The Daily Beast Web site when asked how aggressive President Obama can be in telling Israel that a military strike in Iran is not in America's interest. "They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

"We have to be serious about denying them that right," continued Brzezinski, who endorsed Obama early in the Democratic primary but was not an official adviser to the campaign. "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 forces mistakenly attacked the USS Liberty during the 1967 Six-Day War.

Brzezinski is actually arguing that, should Israel go after Iran's nuclear weapons program to preempt another holocaust, America's national security interests would be served by going to war with Israel in order to protect a regime that wants to create "a world without America and Israel." If that isn't right out of Bizarro World, I don't know what is. 

This contemptible slimeball not only thinks we should kill Israelis to protect the Islamofascists who want to exterminate them, he has the nerve to justify it as "Liberty in reverse." As if a premeditated attack on Israeli jets were morally equivalent to a tragic case of mistaken identity.

Brzezinski apparently shares Carter's loathing of Israel and Jews and his affection for radical Islamists.

    You know, Richard, most of the time I agree with you. But I have to take issue with this particular post.

    1. Jimmy Carter was not the greatest president in history, but I really don’t think he was the worst one either. That dubious distinction belongs to U.S. Grant, or possibly W.G. Harding. As an Alaskan I take a certain perverse pride in the fact that Harding apparently contracted his fatal illness while he was visiting the territory.

    2. The news account you chose to quote (from the JTA) takes Brzezinski’s words out of context. Why not link directly to the actual interview? I read that, and came away with the distinct impression that Brzezinski is far from a “contemptible slimeball”. He is a careful thinker about international affairs in whose considered opinion a direct military conflict between Israel and Iran would cause immense harm to the United States. I don’t necessarily agree with his opinions, but I do respect the many years of honorable service he gave to presidents Carter, Reagan, and Bush (41).

    3. To call the attack on the USS Liberty a “tragic mistake” dishonors the memories of the 34 U.S. naval personnel who were brutally and deliberately murdered by Israeli armed forces in 1967. Try reading the material on this web site and then ask yourself who you really believe — the men who were actually on the ship that day, or the politicians who subsequently whitewashed the event.
