Skip to comments.Former Carter Adviser Brzezinski: US Global Supremacy ‘Is Over’
Posted on 02/22/2012 2:38:49 PM PST by robowombat
The United States can no longer reign supreme as the worlds sole superpower, says Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carters 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 doesnt mean the demise of the United States, as long as were 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.

God, I hate that man.
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.
FUAB and send you daughter over to make me a samich you pos
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.
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.
Flushing the turd in the White House would be a great start.
What say you?
Yes..Ziggy anf Jimmah did their level best to destroy this nation....it took the guts and courage of Ronald Wilson Reagan to restore the American Dream...It will take more than just RWR to undo the trash BOZ has spewn upon this land...
“Mission accomplished,” eh Zbgdsiersgsieytaifh?
Can’t we just deport this A-hole back to his motherland?
And Obama approves this message...
The girly man in the WH is perfectly in line with that
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.
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.
Poland doen’t want him either.
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.
Please God, make it stop.
..what was his suggestion about letting AMERICANS wallow in captivity for 444 days? ....idiot POS
That’s what socialist/commie democrats do. Crap on the US for their WARPED IDEALOGICAL BELIEVES.
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.’
‘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.
as he noted amidst these quotes:
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.
Thanks for your honesty. It’s what I’ve now felt for awhile - that Reagan and Thatcher were brief pauses in the destruction of the West.
Ever notice these old global manipulators never get cancer, or terminal illness and live beyond the average citizen.
I see I am not the only one who has observed that.
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.
Oh my, you read my mind! As I was looking through my messages, I was thinking the same thing! We are still stuck with evil Carter, Brezinski, Clinton, the vile Soros and God knows who else. Truly, the good DO die young - or at least middle-aged - or, waaaay before the evildoers.
add Kissinger, Madeleine Albright
I wish the days of this loser Brzezinski appearing on television shows and shooting off his mouth were “over.”
Exactly. I remember this bunch telling us that we were just going to have to accept the fact of a Soviet Union as a co-equal superpower.
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.
Said the same thing pre-Reagan. Never was more than a five watt bulb in a 220 socket.
They may help prove the existence of either vampires or resident space aliens.

While there can be no denying the harm that has been done to the republic by progressives like this Zbig slimeball and the onerous administration that was a part of, I submit that his victory dance is premature.
ZBig is the POS whose policy funded and instigated the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
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.
And this was the Democrats’ plan all along...
And I bet he did everything in his power throughout his career to make it so. But he can’t hold a candle to The One.
