And the bolded... A few here may take exception with that.
Zbigniew Brzezinski was the achitect of the Carter
Afghan policy and was the mastermind of the Kosovo
secession under KLA terrorist auspices, a gambit
against Serbia and Russia.
Where is Zbib now??
He is a top foreign policy advisor to Barack Hussein
Brzezinski was one of Obama’s professors at
Columbia University and played a key role in his
rise to power. He was also instrumental in Carter’s
accession to the White House in 1979.
What people often overlook about James Earl Carter
is that Islamic fundamentalism was pretty much
the brainchild of the Carter administration. As
Brzezinski had played such a key role in Carter’s
rise to power, he has been able to steer the political
gunboat of Barack Obama.
Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National
Security Advisor, and now the more or less the
same in Obama’s regime, was sent to Afghanistan
to arm the Mujahedeen, a motley group of illiterate
peasants, who might easily have been attracted by
Soviet Communism had it not been for Brzezinski’s
theological exhortations. “God is on your side” he
told them, as the CIA with help from Osama Bin Ladin
and Pakistan’s ISI, proceeded to indoctrinate the
poor farmers in religious fanaticism. Madrasas were
set up throughout the region, where the Mujahadeen
were taught to hate the Russians for being
non-muslims. They were trained in the use of the
latest military equipment while the CIA and Pakstani
Intelligence laundered money from the drug harvests
of the future Taliban.
I had a lucrative offer back then to sell mules to the
CIA for the purpose of transporting arms to the
mujahedeen through the Kyber pass and other
Pak/Afghan routes into Afghanistan to arm the
peasants against the Soviets.
I refused, not because I had any lost love for the
Soviets, I had been a Russian interpreter (with a
TS crypto clearance) many years previous to that,
but because I was aware of the looming threat of
the moslem world that we are now facing and seem
totally incapable of accurately accessing.
Knowledge is power and the current leadership in
Washington is as weak as water, that is if they
are really acting in the best interest of the American
people and the civilized world. "I didn't leave the democrat party,
the democrat party left me."
