Former Carter Adviser Brzezinski: US Global Supremacy ‘Is Over’
Money News ^ | Wednesday, 22 Feb 2012 07:47 AM | Dan Weil

Posted on 02/22/2012 2:38:49 PM PST by robowombat

The United States can no longer reign supreme as the world’s sole superpower, says Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter’s National Security adviser and a prolific foreign affairs scholar.

“The era of global supremacy by a major power . . . is over,” he tells Yahoo.

“The world is now much more diversified. There is now the new East in Asia. There is now a globally, politically awakened population.”

But that doesn’t mean the demise of the United States, as long as we’re willing to make some changes, Brzezinski, says.

“We have to accustomize ourselves to that world. If we want to compete in it, we have to revitalize ourselves.”

When it comes to China, the United States must accept its rising power, he says. “But we can certainly compete more effectively if we do a lot of thing internally to reawaken creativity, confidence, and even the moral significance of America in the world.”

Brezezinski periodically unburdens himself of his wisdom to instruct the peasants.

In part, thanks to his contributions.

What a pair he an Jimmy made. Iran went from the Shah to the Ayotollah - something we pay for every year.

Thanks again ZeeBigNut

The biggest thing we can do is keep people like ZB, his old boss, and the current occupant of the White House and his party out of power.

That effin nit wit Brzezinski was a loser as Carter’s NSA, and he’s loser now. It was due to Brzezinski AND Carter that the entire Iraq-Iran War began, and both of those POS’s should have been indicted and tried on charges of genocide.

Seldom does one encounter a more self-satisfied man than Brezezinski, and seldom, too, does one find a man more chronically wrong.

We can now celebrate the demise of the only democratic republic in the world to show how it must be done and succeed. All anyone must do to see how to have it fail is to follow the 0.

Evil personified.

Thanks to the Obama Administration and the Democrats in the Senate the U.S. has become much weaker. I can remember after Reagan's presidency the experts were saying that the U.S. would be the world's only superpower for the next century.

Now it is clear that the U.S. is growing far weaker and less influential. Soon countries like Pakistan and Iran will be pushing us around. Soon countries like Egypt will be holding Americans hostage without fear of consequences.

So do I. He is the perfect representative of Jimmuh Cahter, though, who was the Obama forerunner in hating America.

What disturbs me the most about these fools who celebrate the fact that Obama has weakened us so thoroughly is that when things turn to crap in the US, who will come to OUR aid?? These dimbulbs haven't gotten far enough past their hatred of the country to figure that out!!

I think that Zbigniew is correct, thanks to the policies of President Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. The destruction of our United States continues with this administration.

Zezski and his idiot boss worked as their sticky fingers to the bone trying to make sure US global influence collapsed while they were in power and are no doubt beside themselves with joy over Barry doing what they were unable to do.

Substantively, Brezinski is correct. But it's galling to hear a Carterite making such statements when they accelerated the process.

PROFESSOR ZIG SAYS:
‘we can certainly compete more effectively if we do a lot of thing(s) internally to REAWAKEN creativity, confidence, and even the MORAL SIGNIFICANCE OF AMERICA in the world.”’

HUH?
‘REAWAKEN’ MORAL SIGNIFICANCE’? What the Hell, i thought we were ALREADY morally significant in the world....i say, we’re about as morally significant as it gets....THE UNITED STATES citizenry gives more money to poor nations than any other outfit extant.. it’s true that most folks all over the world are alive and living better due to US largesse which includes our nuclear umbrella....

I know you join me, fellow freepers, in deep deep sorrow that Ziggy hasn’t figured this out....
well, we may not be THAT sorry....I think he’s mad because we’re doin better than the roooskies.... and always will.

(I don’t think ZIG gets it ..... the USA beats the pants off EVERYBODY)

In closing, ever notice how lefties decry the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; speaking ill of our blessed land?...Jimmah does that to....it’s irritating..

I have more years of education than I care to think about. Having said that, I think we would be much, much better off if we stopped electing ‘intellectuals’ to public office and instead put in place people who have actually done something useful for a living. I would rather have a bricklayer as president, and a refrigerator repairman as speaker of the house than to have any more of the types of people we’ve been putting into office the past 20 years.

Welllllll

as he noted amidst these quotes:

http://twoday.net/static/omega/files/quotes_from_people_who_consider_us_subjects.htm

that piece of Marxist globalist traitorous fertilizer

sure worked hard, with Carter et al

toward insuring exactly that—one of their long held goals that the oligarchy has worked hard and long toward.

Now, with OThuga doing his best to follow his DESTROYER-IN-CHIEF orders in his typical ungrand style . . . they are on the brink of reducing the USA to ashes just as they have long planned.

Their scheduled looming WW3 on the near horizon will likely do exactly that.

How is a bankrupt nation supposed to exercise “global supremacy”?

That was not the Founders’ goal and it should not be ours.

When I watch Morning Joe, I can see the absolute glee with which that creep celebrates the downfall of America. And, of course, it was Carter and the gang who started the downward spiral. I loved Ronald Reagan but I see him more and more as a passing phase in my beloved America. I hope I’m wrong. Please tell me I am.

When we consider the likes of JFK, LBJ, Jimmuh, RR, GB1, WJC, GB2 and Obama, Reagan stands out as the exception. Clearly, despite the failure of nobama, another Rweagan has not emerged to replace the worst POTUS EVER!!!!

Looking at the list above, you can see the downward spiral and trace the major shifts into the mud and the one bright spot that occurred within that group.

I can’t tell you, at this moment, that you are wrong.

From the guy who oversaw giving away title to the Panama Canal and served the administration that caved in upon itself over the hostages in our Iran embassy...

Is he venturing an opinion or gloating?

For that matter, the administration he served looks a bit like the current group of idiots.

Too bad we can’t find another Reagan waiting in the wings.

We should listen to a man who sat there for 444 days and let our embassy staff be guarded by a bunch of radicals who had nothing but threat to put in front of them, tell us how to handle a serious situation?

This man is not to be trusted to control even the slightest situation. He, certainly, is nobody to listen to with regard to a warlike situation. He just does not have what it takes to be a Secretary of State. Now he is not and should not be listened to.

That’s the problem with lefties-all of their schemes seem to involve the undoing of America. If only they could annunciate a positive vision for this country, which is really the only country in the world with the drive and imagination to make their doofus utopias realities. Just as well that they can’t, though; none of their ideas are worth much, anyway.
