ANALYSIS: Zbigniew Brzezinski’s Russophobia Drives NATO Aggression in Poland, Baltics


WASHINGTON, July 12 (Sputnik) – The Russophobic racist ideology of US geo-strategist and former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski is shaping NATO’s agenda in Poland and the Baltic states in an attempt to provoke a war with Russia just like the United States did 40 years ago in Afghanistan, experts told Sputnik.

On Tuesday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the Alliance’s military buildup in Eastern Europe will dominate tomorrow’s NATO-Russia Council (NCR) meeting.

The European Parliament is supposed to adopt a resolution this week to establish an anti-Russian information warfare center based on NATO’s Brzezinski-designed model, according to Voltaire Network, a French news site.

“Brzezinski’s agenda continues to undermine Afghanistan’s sovereignty while NATO forces push aggressively to the Russian border in Brzezinski’s homeland of Poland,” authors of highly-acclaimed books on US foreign policy Elizabeth Gould and Paul Fitzgerald told Sputnik.

As former President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Advisor, Brzezinski’s ideological war against the Soviet Union culminated in 1979 with the success of his plot to draw the Soviets into the “Afghan Trap,” and now NATO is trying to provoke a war with Russia because of the mastermind’s racist influence, Gould and Fitzgerald noted.

In 1995, the authors explained, CIA Director Stansfield Turner admitted that “the fact Brzezinski is a Pole” was terribly important to what drove US policy in the Cold War, meaning that his irrational hatred for Russia is what left Afghanistan in ruins.

Moreover, Gould and Fitzgerald continued, Brzezinski openly bragged in a 1998 interview with a French news weekly about how he inveigled the Soviets into Afghanistan to give them “their own Vietnam,” by convincing Carter to authorize support for the country’s mujahideen six months before the Soviet Unions considered invading.

Brzezinski’s simple exaggerations and outright lies about Soviet intentions grounded in a blind hatred for Russia found a home in America’s imagination, and is influencing NATO’s military buildup in Eastern Europe, Gould and Fitzgerald maintained.

“US foreign policy, since that time, has operated in a delusion of triumphalism, provoking international incidents and then capitalizing on the chaos,” Gould and Fitzgerald observed.

Peace activists should focus on Brzezinski’s war crimes in Afghanistan rather than hyper-focus on crimes committed by US and UK officials in Iraq, because US policy will never change until his influence is stopped, the authors stated.

Unfortunately, Gould and Fitzgerald lamented, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton clearly intends to carry on Brzezinski’s legacy if she is elected to become the next US president.

Radio show host and political activist Steve Lendman told Sputnik that he is worried about NATO’s saber-rattling, and fears that if Clinton wins the US presidential election, a confrontation with Russia is a “coin flip.”

“The possibility of World War III is greater than any time in my lifetime… [and] I will be 82 [years old] next month,” Lendman said. “I hope [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has some magic up his sleeves to prevent the unthinkable.”

On Monday, Russia’s envoy to NATO Alexander Grushko said the alliance’s plans to deploy four multinational battalions of about 1,000 troops each in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Poland, undermine security in the region and threaten Russia.
