Brzezinski: ‘Global Political Awakening Making Syrian War Difficult’. TAP – we’re so sorry.

During a short interview with Germany’s DW News last Monday, former US National Security Adviser and Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinski commented on the growing inefficiency of war due to the increased political knowledge of the public.

“Given the contemporary reality of what I have called in my writings ‘Global Political Awakening,’ a policy of force based primarily on Western and in some cases former colonial powers does not seem to me a very promising avenue to an eventual solution to the regional problem,” said Brzezinski, referring to the situation in Syria.
Despite Brzezinski’s noted long-term relationship with Obama which included a top foreign policy adviser position, Brzezinski denied any specific knowledge of his plans regarding Syria, saying that if the administration has a strategy, it’s a “very well-kept secret.”
Obama’s Middle Eastern strategy has been a mere continuation of the policies seen under Bush, exemplified by former four star general and NATO commander Wesley Clark’s admission of the Bush-era Pentagon plan to overthrow several countries including Libya and Syria.
Although Brzezinski at times attempts to appear opposed to military interventionism, President Obama’s actions in Syria, which include the support of admitted Al Qaeda fighters, closely mirrors several of Brzezinski’s previous policies, most notably the opposition to the Soviet Union in 1979, where decisions made by Brzezinski led to the creation of Al Qaeda through the CIA funding of the Afghan Mujaheddin.
Brzezinski’s call of warning to the “global political awakening” has only intensified in recent years. Last year during a speech in Poland, Brzezinski noted that it has become “increasingly difficult to suppress” and control the “persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples.” Brzezinski also blamed the accessibility of “radio, television and the Internet” for the “universal awakening of mass political consciousness.”

    People are awake to the fact that Bush went to war with Iraq when Saddam Hussein had nothing to do with 9-11, Bush tried to pull a fast one but we knew, and then he covers himself with the bs of weapons of mass destruction. Theses war mongers in our government are being watched very closely by the pacifists in the country and we aren’t falling for their lie and their feeble attempts at obvious false flags. Since when have you decided to make this country prime industry war. And why is it our boys on the front line for Israel and the European Empire? We won’t be needed Middle Eastern Oil or wars with them U>S Military complex so run your own wars and leave the U.S out of it. Britain is the one that used the chemicals on the Syrian people, so maybe we should be fighting Britain not Syria?
