Zbig Brzezinski: Shoot Down Israeli Planes If They Attack Iran
Israel Natrional News ^ | September 21, 2009 | Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 09/20/2009 10:21:23 PM PDT by Tzvi INN.com

Zbig Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for U.S. President Barack Obama, has called on the president to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast.

“We have to be serious about denying them that right,” he said.

I’m sure Israel has this taken into account in their Samson option. I wouldn’t suggest tempting Jehovah.

Even though I was but a lad back then, I always thought this guy was batting for the other team when I heard his name mentioned.

Why would we do a thing like that? This is Israel and Iran’s beef.

You beat me to it. When Brezhinski was Carter's advisor, I was in my early twenties. I was about as clueless and disinterested in politics as the next twentysomething, but this guy pinged my radar, hard.

I've never thought that he was anything but a commie infiltrator.

Could be interesting to see just what surprises the Israelis have installed in their fighters.

I seem to recall a tank battle a few years back when we were dumbfounded at the advances they had made in armored warfare - without our help.

Unlike the U.S., the Israelis have been spending money on new air to air weapons. I wouldn’t want to get into a fight with Python 5 on the other guy’s wing.

I was thinking a little differently, like having our aerial tankers over Iraq forget the difference between Israeli and American aircraft.

Zbig was known as a staunch anti-communist. Carter was criticized from the left for having him in his administration. Don’t ask me what happened.

I can’t agree that this is Israel and Iran’s beef. This is the conflict of a good and democratic nation in Israel versus an evil and tyrannical nation in Iran. This is a case of one of our closest democratic allies being threatened by islamofascist warmongers. It would be my wish that our warplanes either assist or escort the Israeli planes in their mission. Unlike the Resident of the white house, I stand with Israel, not with Islam.

I do not mean to incriminate the good people of Iran with any of my statements. I believe that a great many of them are being held against their will by a terrorist regime, and my heart goes out to them as well.

This isn’t a Commie fight. It seems that the perennial rage is to hate on the Jooz, and Zbig is soldiering right along in that vein.

Zbig was known as a staunch anti-communist. Carter was criticized from the left for having him in his administration.

So, Zbig was three inches to the right of Jimmih Cahtah. Naturally, the left thought he was too right-wing. They think Obama is too far to the right. They're all loons.

Iran manufactures improvised explosive devices. They provide these IEDs to terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan for use against American Soldiers.

Someone please explain to me how Zbig Brzezinski (wasn't he in “Hitch Hikers Guide?”) is not committing treason by giving aid and comfort to our enemy.

In May 2008, Malley said in an interview that he had been in regular contact with Hamas, as part of his work for a conflict resolution think-tank called the International Crisis Group. This aroused ire and concern in pro-Israel circles, and prompted a spokesman for Obama to say that “Rob Malley has, like hundreds of other experts, provided informal advice to the campaign in the past. He has no formal role in the campaign and he will not play any role in the future.”
One of the sponsors of the International Crisis Group is billionaire George Soros, who sits on its board and its executive committee. Other members of the board include former United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, and former general Wesley Clark, who called US support for Israel during the Second Lebanon War a “serious mistake” and said that “New York money people” were pushing the United States towards a confrontation with Iran.-———Report: Obama Sends Advisor Malley to Cozy Up to Egypt and Syria,” arutz 7 ^ | 11/9/08 | Gil Ronen , Posted on Sunday, November 09, 2008 7:08:35 PM by Nachum

It makes a BIG difference whether he is going to shoot them down on their way to Iran, OR, ON THEIR WAY BACK. Siding against Israel is a BIG mistake.

The legitimacy of ALL US foreign policy is challenged by this, especially when it is already challenged by the Czech/Pole estrangement and H. Clinton in March 2009, at a Planned Parenthood Conference, having stated that the number 1 State Dept. Foreign Policy priority was....’world reproduction issues’.

The world may be wondering what planet the US is thinking of these days. Surrealists may have a clue.

That’s ZBIG talk from someone who served in the most failed administration in recent history. Yet, he is typical of an advisor to the Messiah who wants to “fundamentally” change America - screw our friends and apologize to our enemies.

If George W. Bush refused to grant fly over rights of Iraq to the Israelis, I doubt that Obama will grant the Israelis such fly over rights.

He was anti-communist but pro-socialist. Hitler was also anti-communist but was still a socialist.

He was always an anti-Semite and was pro-Khomeini.

You got that entirely correct. Half of the force behind the Islamic Revolution was Jimmuh and his corrupt pals throwing the Shah under the bus when the Shah refused to be shaken down by them. Just a bit of untold history that is about to be revealed soon enough but all too long in coming.

One has to wonder, considering Brzezinski's closeness to Obama and his administration, if this statement was initiated by the WH as a sort of backhanded/underhanded warning to the Israelis that they must tow the Obama party line re: Iran (which, of course, they will not).

Whatever the cause for the statement and whatever the intention, Israel needs to consider that, like Eastern Europe, she is no longer an ally of this WH.

The allies of the WH are the enemies of the U.S. and America's allies are now enemies of the White House. In effect (and as everyone on this site knows), that means that the White House is an enemy of America.
