Brzezinski on Engagement

Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski comes out in favor of Barack Obama's position on foreign policy. Brzezinski states that he favors Obama's diplomatic engagement over Hillary Clinton's lack of political courage and imagination.

"The Senator from New York talks in conventional terms and I don't think the country needs to go back to what we had eight years ago," Brzezinski said.

That is a subtle bitchsmack at the Clinton administration's foreign policy.

Brzezinski finds Condoleezza Rice's refusal to negotiate with Iran and Syria is foolhardy. He notes that the United States negotiated with the Soviet Union at the height of the cold war.

Wow, I couldn’t have said it better. Hillary is the past, and we need to strike a new chord in American Foreign policy. Wars of aggression, secretly funding coups, and raping the underdeveloped world of resources are characteristics of our history that will not work in this day and age. If we continue to ignore the death, starvation, and frankly the economic inequities of this world it will eventually come back to haunt us. You can’t expect to amass all the wealth in the world at the expense of others without people trying to take it from you through violent means.
