Two different aritcles discussing Brzezinski. You decide.
"THE BRZEZINSKI/OBAMA AXIS
By Professor Paul Eidelberg
September 26, 2009
"Back in 1985, I wrote an article on Brzezinski for The Intercollegiate Review. Before citing some of the more relevant passages of that article, it should be borne in mind that Brzezinski, a political scientist, served as President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser. One does not have to read Carter’s Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid to know that Carter is an anti-Semite. Brzezinski has earned the same reputation.
Not only has Brzezinski publicly defended the anti-Semitic canard that the relationship between America and Israel is the result of Jewish pressure, but he also signed a letter demanding dialogue with Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel’s destruction. It behooves us to understand the mentality of Obama’s Middle East adviser.
Long before he became Mr. Carter’s national security adviser, Brzezinski rejected what he and most political scientists term the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet political systems. “This image,” he says, “is held by traditional anti-Communists.” Brzezinski thus affirmed he is not quite an anti-Communist. In fact, he deplores anti-Communism as “a relic of the Cold War, of the age of ideology.”
Not only did Brzezinski reject the “black-and-white” image of the American and Soviet forms of government, he rejects the very notion of good and bad regimes! Brzezinski is simply a moral or cultural (or historical) relativist, and relativism has certainly modulated Barack Obama’s mentality.
The influence of political scientists like Brzezinski is wide and deep. His relativism prompts him to negotiate with and appease terrorist regimes. With Brzezinski as his adviser, Obama will be more disposed to appease Iran and betray America’s allies, above all Israel.
Since Brzezinski is a relativist, he denies the existence of objective or trans-historical standards for determining whether the way of life of one nation, group, or individual is morally superior to that of another. (The members of the UN General Assembly must be pleased to hear this, despite the UN’s notorious record of condemning Israel without having ever condemned an Islamic state.)
Brzezinski’s relativism also makes him a “weather-vane” political scientist. He turns with the winds of power. Working in a pluralistic and egalitarian country like America—a secular society—he conveniently adopts tolerance as his operational principle on the one hand, and equality as his primary value on the other. He is quite at home with the moral equivalency that has shaped US foreign policy toward Israel and Islamic dictatorships.
Brzezinski views history through the lens of Marxism, which, despite its atheism, has much in common with Islam. Both Communism and Islam are universalistic ideologies that reject the idea of the nation-state. Both do not regard adherence to treaties between nations as obligatory. Both Communism and Islam are militaristic and expansionist creeds that do not recognize international borders. Brzezinski’s globalism is evident in Jimmy Carter. Under Brzezinski’s influence, Carter lowered the defense budget and pursued a soft line toward the Soviet Union. Obama is pursuing a very soft line toward Islam.
As a crypto-Marxist, Brzezinski deplores the nation-state. His book Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, declares that “With the splitting and eclipse of Christianity man began to worship a new deity: the nation. The nation became a mystical object claiming man’s love and loyalty. The nation-state along with the doctrine of national sovereignty fragmented humanity. It could not provide a rational framework within which the relations between nations could develop.” Brzezinski sees the nation-state as having only partly increased man’s social consciousness and only partially alleviated the human condition.
“That is why Marxism,” he contends, “represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing and man’s universal vision.” Marxism, he says, “was the most powerful doctrine for generating a universal and secular human consciousness.” Embodied in the Soviet Union, however, Communism became the dogma of a party and, under Stalin, “was wedded to Russian nationalism.”
Although Brzezinski poses as a humanist, he makes a most inhumane statement by saying that: “although Stalinism may have been a needless tragedy, for both the Russian people and Communism as an ideal, there is the intellectually tantalizing possibility that for the world at large it was … a blessing in disguise.” Brzezinski could as readily say: “Yes, Muslims slaughtered more than 200 million people, but Islam brought hundreds of Christian, Jewish, Zoroastrian, Hindu, and Buddhist communities under a single universal vision, that of the Quran”!!!
Brzezinski, a self-professed secularist, is an internationalist whose moral relativism contradicts the moral law or natural rights doctrine of America’s Declaration of Independence. His relativism and internationalism contradict the teachings of the America’s Founding Fathers, who endowed the United States with a national identity and character, the same that animated Abraham Lincoln. To put it more bluntly: Brzezinski’s political mentality — like that of countless other American academics — is anti-American. An Obama-Brzezinski axis has revolutionary significance. It may accelerate the de-Americanization and decline of the United States.

"In a shocking development with major geopolitical implications, former National Security Advisor and current man on point for the Western Imperialists Zbignew Brzezinski has publicly stated that the United States Air Force will confront any Israeli fighter jets flying over Iraq if Israel attempts to attack Iran.
"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? 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."
"Liberty in reverse" he said. Wow, that is an incredible thing for Brzezinski to say. Israel in 1967 attacked the USS Liberty and claimed it was an "accident". Pay close attention to how the Israeli media responds to this particular statement from Brzezinski. They say how all of the "commissions" found it was accidental or mistaken identity.
Brzezinski returned to the Imperialist forefront after the Establishment fully realized that the program of the Neoconservative strategists was so disastrous. This is why the NIE in 2007 reported that Iran did not have a nuclear weapons program, a direct result of Brzezinski's influence.
Note Medvedev's recent appearance on CNN where he claims Shimon Peres told him that Israel has no plans to attack Iran. That is psychological warfare being waged against the Neoconservative faction at Brzezinski's behest. Brzezinski is saying in no uncertain terms "we are in charge and you are doomed without our help if you attack Iran" to the Neocon faction. What has Putin been told or promised, I wonder? What kind of deal was made? Is it true that Netanyahu was physically removed from Putin's presence during their recent meeting?
Now, the NIE has just recently again issued a report that reaffirms it's 2007 findings, right? Why is this? This is because the Neoconservative faction is exercising all of it's might to compel a US-led attack upon Iran as Israel cannot even dream of touching Iran on it's own. Look closely at what is floating down the Propaganda Sewage Canals lately. Do you see how one the one hand there is an "Iran must be bombed right away" element while on the other hand there is an "Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program" element? Recently the "bomb Iran" propaganda has had a distinct "Israel will have to go it alone if the US doesn't do something" quality to it. Why is this? This is Neoconservative psychological warfare being waged against the Brzezinski-led Trilateralist faction. But Zbig knows the deal and has gone so far as to say "we would put a stop it" and how about THAT?!!
IT IS BECAUSE THE ELITES ARE AT WAR!!!
There is great panic and ever-growing fear among the Elites. They hate and fear us. Note Nancy Pelosi's recent expressed concern for "potential violence" right? How about the real violence in all of these wars Nancy? Does that bring tears to your eyes? The though of it?
The sight of The Angry Citizen Pitchforks and Torches Brigade, the Internet Community and the 9/11 Truth Movement is causing mad Elitist panic. Think about Obama now saying that the corporate media needs it's own "bailout" right? He supports that. Great. Listen to these recent pronouncements within the corporate media, disparaging bloggers and real journalism. Pick up on that.
The current "dupe the public with the Messiah-figure" program is tanking rapidly, also. Obama's administration and popularity are crashing to the ground as though they were World Trade Center buildings or something; free-fall speed, no resistance and you get the idea. Look at the health-care proposal. The government does hearby order you to surrender a portion of your income to a corporate cartel of insurance companies under a penalty of $3,800 if you refuse. Straight Fascism. Those insurance companies are no different than the Wall St Usurer Community and they are just as bankrupt.
But we have this stunning development now. Israel has been publicly flogged by the US and it is marvelous, right? Ah, but lets not get too excited. Brzezinski's program is to destroy the Russia-China-Iran-Caspian States alliance personified by the Shanghai Cooperation Organization. Let's hope Brzezinski understands the very, very weak position of the US here and thinks to himself "maybe we should just start dealing fairly with others and treat them like the human beings that they are".
Give it some thought Zbig. The pitchforks are out in force."
