Zbig on Georgia

Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, compares Putin’s invasion of Georgia to the pre-WW2 policies of Stalin and Hitler, then manages to recommend nothing much more solid than “mobilizing [a] collective international response” with economic sanctions to deal with it. Thanks for that, Zbig, nice to know that you’re as helpful today as you were back when the peanut farmer was running things. 

It seems not to have occurred to him, by the way, that the feistier the Russians get on their borders, the closer the EU countries will want to be to the U.S. Or that the feistier Russia is on its southern border, the more willing the rulers of Iran might be to seek a rapprochement with the U.S. In crisis, opportunity.
