CONT GEORGIA

His area of official responsibility included Georgia during the period when the US was intensifying the financing and training of the Georgian military. Russia accuses Georgia of aiding the Chechen terrorists.

So Brzezinski has been the key hands-on strategist, the leader on the ground, in a vast area plagued with Muslim extremist terror during most of the so-called war on terror. Oops – did I say rzezinski? Sorry; I meant Zalmay Khalilzad…



Brzezinski’s Interview with Le Nouvel Observateur


Le Nouvel Observateur: Former CIA director Robert Gates states in his memoirs: The American secret services began six months before the Soviet intervention to support the Mujahideen [in Afghanistan]. At that time you were president Carters security advisor; thus you played a key role in this affair. Do you confirm this statement?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Yes. According to the official version, the CIA’s support for the Mujahideen began in 1980, i.e. after the Soviet army’s invasion of Afghanistan on 24 December 1979. But the reality, which was kept secret until today, is completely different:

Actually it was on 3 July 1979 that president Carter signed the first directive for the secret support of the opposition against the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And on the same day I wrote a note, in which I explained to the president that this support would in my opinion lead to a military intervention by the Soviets.

Le Nouvel Observateur: Despite this risk you were a supporter of this covert action? But perhaps you expected the Soviets to enter this war and tried to provoke it?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: It’s not exactly like that. We didn’t push the Russians to intervene but we knowingly increased the probability that they would do it.

Le Nouvel Observateur: When the Soviets justified their intervention with the statement that they were fighting against a secret US interference in Afghanistan, nobody believed them. Nevertheless there was a core of truth to this…Do you regret nothing today?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Regret what? This secret operation was an excellent idea. It lured the Russians into the Afghan trap, and you would like me to regret that? On the day when the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote president Carter, in essence:

“We now have the opportunity to provide the USSR with their Viet Nam war.” Indeed for ten years Moscow had to conduct a war that was intolerable for the regime, a conflict which involved the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet Empire.

Le Nouvel Observateur: And also, don’t you regret having helped future terrorists, having given them weapons and advice?

Zbigniew Brzezinski: What is most important for world history? The Taliban or the fall of the Soviet Empire? Some Islamic hotheads or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

Parents Of Boston Suspect Describe His Russia Trip
The parents of Tamerlan Tsarnaev insisted Sunday that he came to Dagestan and Chechnya last year to visit relatives and had nothing to do with the militants operating in the volatile part of Russia, with his father saying he slept a lot of the time.

Well, they are his parents. They're not capable of being objective.
Parents still love and protect their children even if they are killers.
I think the father should be detained if he comes here.

NUFF SAID Le Nouvel Observateur:“Some hotheads?” But it has been said time and time again: today Islamic fundamentalism represents a world-wide threat…

Zbigniew Brzezinski: Rubbish! It’s said that the West has a global policy regarding Islam. That’s hogwash: there is no global Islam. Let’s look at Islam in a rational and not a demagogic or emotional way. It is the first world religion with 1.5 billion adherents. But what is there in common between fundamentalist Saudi Arabia, moderate Morocco, militaristic Pakistan, pro-Western Egypt and secularized Central Asia? Nothing more than that which connects the Christian countries…

He's absolutely right. Most people were wrong about the necessity of the Korean War in the immediate aftermath.

South Koreans and history judge it very differently today.

Most likely the brothers were framed and encouraged to carry out the bombing. This explains why Russian warnings about Tamerlan Tsarnev’s connection to Islamists were ignored.

The days following the bombing included extensive use of security cameras, a no-fly zone, a city-wide lockdown, the glorification of an overwhelming and expensive security apparatus, and a decision not to read US citizen Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights.

These precedent-setting jabs at the Constitution represent the rise of a techno-fascist state where privacy is vanquished and Big Brother is welcomed into our cities, neighborhoods and even homes.

The excessive and well-televised show of force in Boston following the Marathon bombing serves to bolster the US police state and the ongoing shredding of the Bill of Rights. While much remains to be known about Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.THIS WILL BRING ABOUT EQUAL RIGHTS STOP AND FRISK FOR WHITES BECAUSE YOU COULD BE A TERRORIST NO ONE ESCAPES MARTIAL LAW OBAMA THE GREAT EQUALIZER PERFECT

Iraq Survey Group Final Report
http://www.globalsecurity.org/wmd/library/rep...
"In the years following Iraq’s war with Iran and invasion of Kuwait, Saddam’s Regime sought to preserve the ability to reconstitute his WMD while seeking sanctions relief through the appearance of cooperation with the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) and the UN Monitoring Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC). Saddam’s initial approach under sanctions was driven by his perceived requirements for WMD and his confidence in Iraq’s ability to ride out inspections without fully cooperating."
...I didn't make it up.
So, we invaded because of "perceived requirements"?

perceived???

Shouldn't we know for sure???? Shouldn't we have found any bit of nuclear activity?

PBS Broadcasting: "Money and Medicine".

Just be prepared to change your perspectives about the health care problem...the REAL problem...not Obama's idea of a big government solution.
(You might want to remove your blinders first and take out your ear plugs...feel free to keep your hands over your eyes if the volume is turned up.)
Eliminating the middle man, insurance companies, will bring costs down. The government will set the costs of procedures which will be uniform; they can also negotiate the price of medications on behalf of American citizens. This is how it is done in Canada,
single payer healthcare paid through taxation and not attached to employment.

This is from your article; it appears that you are having a reading comprehension problem:

"The trillion-dollar question is how can we reduce unnecessary medical spending so that we can afford to provide affordable, high quality health care to all Americans? A number of recent studies estimate that a third of all health care expenditures are unnecessary and that eliminating wasteful spending would save over 800 billion dollars a year. Since every dollar of so-called unnecessary spending is a dollar of income to a health care provider, reigning in health care spending is much more easily said than done."

You claim that the GOP has a plan to reduce costs; oh really? Like what? The AHCA is far from perfect, but it is a beginning to the birth of universal single payer healthcare; it's inevitable.

The Iraq War, the 2007 troop surge there, the 2008 financial meltdown and the response to Katrina in 2005 are featured in an interactive exhibit called "decision points theater" where visitors can assess "the decisions that I had to make and the recommendations I received," he says.

Iraq Survey Group Final Report:

"Saddam’s initial approach under sanctions was driven by his perceived requirements for WMD and his confidence in Iraq’s ability to ride out inspections without fully cooperating."

"Iraq engaged in denial and deception activities to safeguard national security and Saddam’s position in the Regime. These surveillance activities and the suspect vehicle movements in and around sensitive sites made it difficult for Western intelligence services to distinguish innoculous security-related measures from WMD concealment activities which added to the suspicion of Iraqi actions."

"Senior military officers and former Regime officials were uncertain about the existence of WMD during the sanctions period and the lead up to Operation Iraqi Freedom because Saddam sent mixed messages. Early on, Saddam sought to foster the impression with his generals that Iraq could resist a Coalition ground attack using WMD. Then, in a series of meetings in late 2002, Saddam appears to have reversed course and advised various groups of senior officers and officials that Iraq in fact did not have WMD. His admissions persuaded top commanders that they really would have to fight the United States without recourse to WMD. In March 2003, Saddam created further confusion when he implied to his ministers and senior officers that he had some kind of secret weapon."

He was sending mixed messages to the entire world, not just his generals.
